What would you put in YOUR Arcade?

Neave Pacman buttonNeave Pacman button For the next episode of the podcast, I would like to get some feedback from our members. My question is - Which three arcade games would you put in your own arcade? Let's stick to just video-based games for this one. Pick three. If you have to go higher, limit it to five. Send me an e-mail with your picks. Don't post them here! I'll compile a list of them and try to talk briefly about each one in the next episode.
