Couldn't do that these days. Even bloody Street Fighter is $1 minimum now or $2 for 3 continues at some places that still have it, instead of 20/40 cents.

One of my mates got an old arcade cabinet a little while back - I think it was a NBA Jam one, as it has enough room for 4 players - and he chucked an old PC with MAME into it.
It's friggin awesome playing all the retro games on a real arcade. Even sweeter with free play enabling me to clock some of those crazy games with bosses that are designed to kill you like 10 times before they die xD

Haha [CS] Subside modded my old original Xbox a few years back and turned it into a mame machine with all the old console emulators on it as well :D
Damn good fun, wonder where Subside is now :D

That's right you could mod the first Xbox to be a mean little emulator console.

Compariatively, the latest gen of consoles didn't even let you play the previous gen games from their own consoles - I'm looking at you PS4 and XB1 (though the XB1 does have the ability to run a handful of older games now...)
