    I would like to hear of enjoyable/ the best games that you found through arcade emulation of any type. I do hope they won't all be cps2 or snk games.

    For me it's been mostly about discovering the Japanese-only releases, which can make for some pretty interesting games.

    I had never played (much less seen) Power Drift in the arcades. I think it is mentioned as having some priority problems in Final Burn, but damn if it isn't fun to play.

    The Raizing/Cave/Atlus shooters, especially Dangun Feveron. It's mad, in a good way.

    My favorite ones that I'd never seen before have to be all the demented Japanese ones.. There's a paper/scissors/stone one on there where your opponents pull some hilarious faces and make some truly frightening noises. Can't remember what it's called now..

    Also enjoyed playing Space Harrier for the first time since my Atari STE fell down the stairs.
