Recommended PC Games for an Arcade Cabinet

Recommended Posts

I've been gathering a list of the best PC games that would play well on an arcade cabinet. Luckily, with the indie scene currently focusing so heavily on 8 and 16 bit graphics, several of these are quick-play, 2D, one or two button controlled games--great for an arcade cabinet! I'm looking for games that will easily work with a standard 2-player cab (1 Joystick and 6 Buttons per player). Keep in mind, the fewer needed controls, the better.

-Able to control with 1 joystick (the 2p joystick is available for twin stick shooters)
-Minimal button requirements (ideally the standard 3 button shoot, jump, special attack style of controls)
-No online requirements
-No keyboard requirements (Able to be entirely controlled via the control panel)
-2 Player is a bonus
-Doesn't require a demanding computer (Most of us use a 2nd or older system to power our cabinets, unless you have quite the powerful setup in your cabinet!)

---All recommended PC games run on an Indel HD 3000/4000 integrated GPU.  I am able to play these on my laptop (i5 2nd Generation).

Here is the list we have gathered so far. I need your help to find more! (Bold font games come highly recommended.  They are well done and "arcade-type" in nature.)

It's in my ftp folder but you're not a gold or platinum member, so you won't have access.

You could search for the leaked Disney version.

I upgraded my HDD once already to accommodate the PC Games (and got rid of the PS1 and PS2 games as well!). I would love to upgrade it again so I can add back the other emulation but the PC Games I play often so it is a good trade off for me until I get the cash to upgrade the HDD.

Emulator? No emulator required to emulate a PC, if I understand correctly. Use the PCLauncher module and best best to download, yes Steam, Humble Bundle, GOG.com
