Excellent! As someone who has played these games in the arcades and NOT acquired the ROMs for MAME, this sounds like a terrific deal. I know a number of these games, especially the driving titles, used custom arcade hardware. One of the most fun multiplayer games, Super Off Road, proved to be just as fun when played with a keyboard back when it was released for the PC a decade or so ago. I've got the gamepads for solid multiplayer action 'round one monitor. These types of games are a great break between the FPS and RTS games that dominate my local LAN parties.
Oh man, I would totally buy this...actually I just might have to to be able to play Smash TV and Total Carnage on my compy!
