Your Magic Fighting Cabinet

So, you are sitting at home playing your game systems and your arcade stick is sliding all over your coffee table. You try sitting it in your lap and it rocks all over the place. You think, damn, I wish I had a real arcade cabinet. Then, you come to terms with reality. You play at least 3 game systems at any given time, plus MAME. How are you going to get all those systems to work in one cabinet?

Then, in a puff of smoke, a beautiful genie appears.

She bows her head and blinks and POOF! an awesome arcade cabinet appears!

The genie tells you that this is a special arcade cabinet. A Magic Arcade Cabinet. The genie tells you that this cabinet can magically play any fighting game ever made for any system! There is only one catch…

You can only pick 21 fighting games for the cabinet.

So, you pop a frozen pizza in the oven and get down to business.

What 21 fighting/Wrestling/Beat 'Em Ups do you pick for your Magic Fighting Cabinet?

So…lol…anybody? :confused:

That was the Rubic’s Cube of forum posts.

WTF kinda smoke are you puffing right now?

I’m just trying to make a fun post. How hard is it to pick 21 games? Obviously harder than taking a shot at me.

Dude I can only think of like 6 differet games off the top of my head. Everything else is just variations on the 6. 6 FIGHTING games I mean. This is the FGD after all.

SFA2, SFA3, MvC2, CvS2, World Heroes 2 Jet, and Killer Instinct. And… ummm… hell, most of what I really want doesn’t run on any of the emus yet :frowning:

best thread ever

i’d just put 21 copies of bad dudes in it, because bad dudes is the best game evar especially when you get the nunchucks and fight karnov oh wow

I just keep rereading the first post. This is too funny. I shall respond, but it shall be in the manner this thread deserves.

The 21 games I would pick from the magic genie, since it is completely based in magic which is sorcery and has unlimited power (FORCE LIGHTNING LOLL), would be SF 1-21. This is possible because of time travel which the magic arcade cabinet can do since genie’s are very powerful (GENIE-JIN ROFL AMIRITE?1) and also I wear Bauer socks which give me +3 to Dex and Flex (OMG 24 IS CLOSE TO 21 THERE SHOULD BE A 24 FIGHTING GAME) and Magic.

Wheat Bread!

Well…there we have it. :lol:

I’m just grateful for that picture of Barbara Eden. Really takes me back to…
3rd grade?

If you can’t think of at least 21 Fighting Games to put in an arcade cabinet, then you aren’t really a fighting game fan anyway, so your input doesn’t count.

supabeast, it can play ANY fighting game EVER made for any system, arcade or otherwise.

Since noone is man enough to post their dream list, I’ll post mine. Here is what I would load my Magic Cabinet with, in no particular order…

Tekken Tag Tournament (PS2)
WWF Wrestlefest (Arcade)
Street Fighter Anniversary Collection (XBOX)
Dead or Alive 4 (XBOX 360)
