    The ideal 6 slot neo geo lineup?

    Ok, so imagine you are a shop owner back in the day. You have one arcade cabinet on location, a 6 slot big red machine. You can choose any six games from the neo library, but you can only afford those 6 games. So no swapping carts. What titles do you choose? What does the ultimate 6 slot cabinet have in it?

    I was thinking something like this:

    Aero fighters 3
    Neo turf masters
    Real Bout Fatal Fury Special
    Puzzle bobble 2
    Pulstar
    Metal Slug

    What is your absolute best 6 slot lineup? Or perhaps, what lineup do you think would net the most quarters from customers?

    Karou's right, if I were an operator I'd replace the MVS board with a CPS2 with Street Fighter 2.

    Anyway...

    Metal Slug X
    KOF '98
    Puzzle Bobble 2
    Aero Fighters 3
    Super Sidekicks 3
    Sengoku 3

    perfectly balanced cab.

    If you are a shop owner you have to include a Samurai Shodown or KOF game.

    Sam Sho 2
    KOF 95
    Aero Fighters 2
    Puzzle Bobble
    Metal Slug
    Super Sidekicks 2 (I still see people playing it to this day)

    Samurai Shodown 2
    Puzzle Bobble
    Garou
    Windjammers
    Magical Drop 3
    Soccer Brawl

    Everyone's going to feel pressure to include Metal Slug "just because" but here's the reality about those games: the gameplay in them blows and could be massively improved, and you can only play them so many times before they get boring. The games on my list simply can't be worn out. They'll ALWAYS be fun for two people to play together. Soccer Brawl is really underrated. That game is so fucking fun with two players.

    Metal Slug brings in the noobs. Not including one is like leaving money on the table.

    For real though, here’s my list.

    Magical Drop 3
    Samurai Shodown 4
    Shock Troopers
    Aero Fighters 3/Sonic Wings 3
    Sengoku 2
    Street Hoop/Dunk Dream

    Since you said “back in the day” my game selections are purposefully before the Aruze buyout and bankruptcy.

    Would rather play Gunstar Heroes or Contra 3 over any Neo Metal Slug. Metal Slug's gameplay needs a redo. Doesn't help that it runs at 5fps.

    This. Really, there’s so many solid Neo games that would make it into my top 6. I’d need a few 6 slot cabs to be truly happy with the selection.

    Puzzle Bobble

    Sam Sho III

    Windjammers

    Real Bout 2

    Pulstar

    Metal Slug 2 Turbo

    Neo Turfmasters, Ghostlop, Real Bout Fatal Fury 2... and then the rest go unknown because the board failed to read the carts, and skipped them. This is the most realistic scenario.

    You're not alone so I decided to try looking off an operator's mindset, otherwise the cab would have all sorts of weird crap no one would put quarters into... and Metal Slug.

    Also, the mini marquees on my machine are just 5 empty slots with one Samurai Shodown marquee flipped over with Metal Slug 6 written in permanent marker, so you'll get no help there. This is also the most realistic scenario
