Check out the ArcadeSD jamma card. Can be installed in any jamma cabinet (and you can often find those pretty cheap). Simple plug-and-play, pre-configured, probably over 100 game ssupported now, and more released periodically, saves high scores, and the emulations are hand-tweaked to be spot on (gameplay and audio). A huge plus: it processes joystick inputs so that 8-way joysticks work great for both 4-way and 8-way games; no need for convertible joysticks! The vertical games are more plentiful (it supports both vertical and horizontal games, with many horizontal games adapted to run on a vertical monitor).
I used to have a 60-in-1,have played MAME stuff too. The ArcadeSD is the simplest and best-playing multigame product out there, for the games it covers (all the Pac games, Kongs, frogger, some Nintendo VS, zookeeper, galagas/galaxians, Phoenix, Pleiades, Zaxxon, Bagman, Xevious (the latter 3 with Super versions too), and a bunch more. Why get a whole bunch of games if they don't play like they should, the way you remember them?
