Thanks for the input everyone.
I (as we all probably have) grew up in the arcade and remember how much cash I put toward those things. The bezels do make it feel like the old machine. Right now i have probably 50 games in my Mame wheel and only about 60 to 70 percent have bezels.
I am even looking for the artwork on the wheel for certain games.
If I tried to build a machine for every game I have I would go broke!! Work at a school district and pay is not all that great because it seems life gets in the way with bills etc....
I have always struggled with bezels and love that they are there but did not know if I should go all in and just let the ones without work, or none at all in a generic cabinet. I am thinking of having them for the ones that have them.
You know where i used to game there is a Arcade that was built not to far from where the arcade I used to go to once was. It is on Ogden Ave in Brookfield called Galloping Ghost Arcade. I wonder if they would allow someone to photograph the machines they have there and their bezels???
If you have not seen or heard of it here is the link:
Galloping Ghost Arcade in Brookfield, IL
I was there a few years ago and became a donor. The minute you walk into there it takes you back to when you were a kid and for the price of getting in is great 20 for all day so you can come and go as you please all day for that 20....
And yes I have seen the HyperMarquee Badboo and kinda expensive so gonna have to leave that one out.
Thanks for the all the input on this for me. It does help.
