    Is there anything better than standing up playing an arcade game? I'm thinking control wise here. Take a title that was in the arcade that is now available on a console. What control method do you prefer? Which method were you better at?

    I think I'm better at shoot-em-ups standing up, joystick in my left hand, fire buttons on my right. Just something about the transition to consoles and then using my thumbs that doesn't translate for me.

    Give yourself £5 or ½ gig, you're worth it.

    Standing up is for Guitar Hero and cheap hookers I'm afraid.

    /always liked the sit-down arcade machines

    Pissing, yes. Gaming? No.

    I think it's called "getting used to". I'm a much better player with a pad than with a joystick nowadays, even though my gaming career started with the C64 and Amiga.

    The trouble is that really I prefer my left hand to have a d-Pad, and my right hand an arcade style spider-hand thing going on*. Great back in the Mega-Drive/Saturn day, but real bad with all these shoulder buttons hanging around mocking me.



    *though tecnically I prefer having the joystick in my right hand and the buttons with my left - a la the Master System Joystick

    I agree! Standing up and playing a bit of Aliens vs Predator or Virtua Cop in the arcade feels perfect. I'm building a MAME cabinet near Christmas time so I can get the proper experience at home!

    How you going to do that?

    Are you going to use a pc with an emulator?

    I couldnt do something like that. I would be fine with the computer and electronices but as for the DIY needed to make the cabinet.

    I have trouble knocking a nail in the wall, let alone building something like that.

    All the best on your project.
