Talking of which, you've reignited my fire for Mahjong games. Thanks.

I had a Mahjong game on my ps1 years and years ago. Played loads of it. It may have been a Net Yaroze game, can't remember!

Darius Gaiden is also on MAME. Don't bother with G-Darius on Mame. Amazing game and all but there's no music and the music in that game is amazing and a shame it's missing.

I won't.

Mahjong games are excellent. I'd love to look in to getting a Mahjong CP for my cabinet. Not too common though unfortunately.

Wait a minute! When I was at your beers you made me and Aug play G Darius from start to finish in MAME and wouldn't let us stop. It was running at about 8fps! And we'd just completed a run through of Raiden before!!

It was too much fun watching you guys play the game not knowing how to beam battle which made the boss battles last 30 minutes at a time

It was also fun to see their faces when Raiden just looped back to the start after pumping 500 million credits into it.

Apart from street fighter alpha 3, street fighter 2 turbo, super street fighter 2 turbo, and street fighter third strike, which make up about 75% of my retro gaming (i heart streetfighter) I like to play these:

Bomberman/dynablaster
Final fight
R-type
Puzzle bobble
Ghosts and goblins
Metal slug (any of them)
Mortal kombat 2
Tetris
Parodius
1943
Smash TV
Miss Pac man

There are lots more, but these are the ones that instantly spring to mind as "must play" classics.

What I ended up doing is sending myself an email to gmail with List of Games to play,
ones I remembered playing years ago or found in Mame,
or if all of sudden find some great game while youtubing or on forums, I add it to the list.
I also have YouTube Favourites List of just Arcade Videos, well handy...

Proving great so far:

My Favs:
RASTAN!!!! (pure golden oldie and some soundtrack, probably my No.1 Game for nostalgic reasons)

The Simpsons
The Turtles
BattleToads (Only recently discovered this game, limited controls with still so many actions, funny as hell)

Sunset Riders, Cowboys of Moo Mesa
Bubble Bobble
Bomberman (great fun, only recently found it)
Pengo (1982 Ice blocks game, love this)
Dynamite DUX (1988 Sega Game, Love playing this on Irish Ferries back in the day)
Centipede, Arkanoid 2: Revenge of the DOH (Too Addictive)

X-Men, Spiderman, RoboCop, Captain America and the Avengers (So many Cameos, Love theses)
X-Men Children of the Atom, Marvel vs SF
Marvel vs Capcom (Probably most played game on my Mame Cab)
MK2, MK3
All Street Fighters, SF2 Alpha

Captain Commando
Final Fight
Cadillacs and dinosaurs (like final fight)
Night Slashers
Ninja Baseball Batman (Awesome Art Style)
Alien vs Predator, Aliens ( Aliens rocked in arcade, coin guzzler, flame thrower, ooh ya...)

Super Sidekicks 1 2 3
NHL - Open ICE (one of best games for having mates around, same as NBA Jam, but Ice Hockey)
NBA Jam
WWF WRESTLEFEST\ Royal Rumble (Again one of the best games for pick up and play at a party)

Shinobi, Double Dragon
Striders 1& 2
Dragon Ninja, Shadow Dancer
Shinobi, Kung Fu

Joe and Mac

Knights of the round
