    RyogAkari's Collection of 'Cades

    Here is my collection thus far minus a couple cabinets. Ive rearranged a few times so a couple cabs appear in different positions in some of the photos. I have a strong focus on collecting music games as you can tell.

    Couple notes:

    The collection of MVS carts represent most of my carts. I think I have 8 or 9 missing from that picture in one of my 2 dedicated MVS Neo Geo arcades (a candy and a woody).

    I rescued the blast city from a life as a sega bass fishing (which it was broken beyond repair anyway). It's running mame right now till I get some boards in. Its got a lot of stuff that needs to be done to it in general.

    Sorry I dont have any better pics of my american stand up atomiswave. I did a conversion on that cabinet from sports shooting to buttons/joysticks. The control panel is swappable if/when I want to run some light gun games on it in the future.

    Eventually all 3 candies are going together in my house. Ill get a picture up when that is done.

    I was featured on gameroom junkies a while back as well. It has a video walkthrough of a portion of my arcade:

    Gameroom Junkies

    They are always looking for new submissions if anyone wanted to post their collection there.

    At this time, nothing in my collection is available for sale

    Amazing collection. Hydro Thunder is awesome. I still play the DC version occasionally.

    Nice collection, great to see a Daytona in there.

    At first look, on that last pic I thought you had a floor to ceiling pole in there...and maybe you made your gf/wife dance for coins before she could play on your machines

    haha, thanks for the great compliments! I actually finished "paying off" the hydro thunder yesterday. = D
    I work at a small time flooring place and the owner and I both love arcade machines. Most of my collection Ive "purchased" through the installation of floor coverings. For instance, the hydro thunder cost me my time installing a master bedroom of carpet and an adjoining living room of carpet and then the supplies to do a huge walk in closet (carpet, pad, tack strip, etc) and my time to do it. I did the master bedroom/living room a month or so ago and went and did the walk in closet yesterday. Sometimes I only do the labor and they provide the materials, sometimes I provide materials, whatever I can do to get arcades in trade!

    Ive had a heavy focus on trying to keep cabs dedicated and unique though I have a few dynamo/other this and thats to round off the collection. I have a pinball that is not pictured. A nice Miss-O that plays great. I also have a showcase cab but it doesnt fit in my collection space anymore so its on the way out. Ive filled most of my space I have though there is always room for a House of the Dead 1, 2 or 3 if I find one. = D

    PIMP setup. Really nice, diverse collection!

    With all the deals that can be found these days, the biggest enemy of arcade collecting is space!

    I don't think I've ever seen that many Bemani games in a single arcade, let alone someone's house! I couldn't even imagine the determination it takes to move some of the bigger cabs available.
    I <3 the Pixies!

    I actually dont have all of these arcades in my house. Im moving my 3 candys together to a room in my house but my arcade is actually across the street and part of the carpet warehouse where I work, so close by but not adjoined to my living domain. Still though, its wonderful to have a collection! When Im not out installing I work in the store, and when there isnt customers I just fire up my arcades and play. = D Honestly there isnt anything else to do out where I live so I create my own entertainment.
