Ahh, talk about a lifelong dream come true. I bought an Atari Missile Command arcade cabinet from 1980! The woodgrain cabaret version, oh yes. And it even comes with a working coin door and normal-sized quarters!

  • STOCK WARNING I've never played Missile Command (not that I remember) seen it being played in the arcade etc but never got to it. Now after seeing this I'm think BIG thoughts. I have a 486 DX 2 with a serial trackball. I'm guessing that would work well as the ball thing for this game! Now I just need a good emulator for Missile Command on the 486 windows 95 or DOS.

  • I got an MGA Missile Command LCD game from 2001 for my birthday! The same Missile Command LCD game my parents bought me as a child in the US in Kinney original Missile Command LCD game is terribly sat with batteries for 10 years....I brought it back to life for a while by cleaning I have a new one, same game different case-A nice big blue opposed to the original one which Mimics the appearance of original arcade machine....Nostalgia is pretty strong with me....I will take better care of this one, and try to clean up the original to the best of my ability....again!

  • LGR, did you ever watch News Radio, there was an episode where Dave stays up all night playing a retro style arcade cabinet game. I do not think it was missle command, but a cool episode focusing on having an arcade cabinet in the office.

  • My old next door neighbors had this machine in their living room, made me want to get one but it was about 15 or more years ago when I was in my mid-teens, definitely couldn't afford one. This is rekindling that desire to get one :)

  • Ah yes! I have fond memories of going up to the local 7-Eleven drinking a Slurpee and spending 5 to 6 dollars in quarters on this game even though I sucked it was a ton of fun

  • My favorite game ever. I dropped tons of quarters (tokens actually) into that game in college. I could get through the 4x levels pretty easily, and learned to get through the 5x without being completely annihilated, but could never get through 6x completely. A good friend and I used to have competitions for who could get through each level using the fewest shots. I once got through the first level with only 3. Things just lined up the right way that day!

  • When I was in grade school, I went to voluntary summer school for nerds at the local community college. They had an Asteroids machine in the dining hall. There was just something romantic about those simple vector graphics, even back in the early '90s. Ever since then I have always wanted one of those machines. But if I had to pick something affordable, I would probably go for Galaga or Ms. Pac Man because those are the machines I remember playing the most in the '80s.

  • I have only played the Atari 2600 copy of Missle Command, the trackball on the arcade version looks amazing to control it with. I was still pretty young when arcades were a thing and even then they didn't have classics like Missle Command, at that point in the arcade near me they were already phasing out the older games from the 80s.

  • Hey LGR! If you're ever in the San Francisco Bay Area, you should visit the Computer History Museum. However, there is a very cool arcade museum at Fisherman's Wharf in San Francisco called "Musée Mécanique ." Many of the arcade machines are old (and I mean VERY old -- many made out of wood). However, they also have a video game section too. You'd love it! My wife and I live in Palo Alto, so we're just a few miles from both. We've got a guest room if you need a place to stay.

I've got a few 68000 based boards somewhere including Smash TV & Terminator 2. I'd love to get the Atari Battlezone (?), the one with the wireframe tanks and the little periscope thing you looked through. Another great vid Clint, cheers from the UK :)

  • Cabaret version - very nice. Gorgeous condition too. Yeah you can emulate but nothing like an original cabinet. And there's nothing quite like classic era Atari cabinets either! I got my first arcade a year ago - Asteroids Deluxe and I love it. It's the full size cabinet and a 300lb brute though. There are cabaret versions of it too but they are pretty rare and the side art on the full size is a better look for where I have it in the house.

  • Oh I know how you feel! I bought a used pinball ages ago that was left in a store, fixed it up and then put it in an arcade for awhile and made all my money back which was awesome. Had to sell it when I moved, no room. Later I picked up a Pac-Man machine and had it for quite awhile but sadly had to sell that when I moved again. Wish I hadn't as I now have room again. Oh well. I love the smell inside arcade machine cabinets, something about it...
