You have a big empty garage or den with room for three original arcade cabinets. What do you pick?
Mortal Kombat II, Donkey Kong, Ms. Pac-Man.
Set for life.
Gauntlet: Dark Legacy
It's really tough to choose that too...
Can it be ANYthing?
I'd totally have one of those Mechwarrior Sim Machines...the big cubicle things you climb into.
As for convention - Street Fighter 2 is a must, along with Donkey Kong, Metal Slug and Bubble Bobble.
Duke's MAME Arcade Cabinet.

Well, I already have a Galaga/Ms Pacman machine and a good pinball machine.
So a candy crane.
First person to post a MAME or emulation cabinet is a pussy, by the way.
House of the Dead 2
tiger woods with the track ball
that shooter one that was like the boxing one where it would track your movement, cant remember the name for the life of me.
First and foremost, THIS. I have wonderful memories of playing this with my little brother whenever we went to pizza hut. Man, I want one so bad.
Second, THIS. I think this was the first arcade game that I ever beat with my friends. I became a man that day.
Third, this one is hard...I have so many contenders. Simpsons, X-Men (6 man), Tekken Tag, DDR, SF2, Time Crisis, Guantlet Legends, MK 1-3, NBA Jam...but the third spot would definitely have to be NFL Blitz. I love that game so much.
Soooo many awesome arcade games mentioned in this thread! I want to own a dream building with everybody's dream arcade inside! And Bret can have his entire wishlist! lol
Anyway, the only other 3 I can think of that hasn't been mentioned so far are
Turtles In Time
Star Wars Trilogy
Hey, fuck you! Duke's cabinet looks awesome.
My school totally has that Pac-Man party. So freaking awesome.
I think I would have to go with Gauntlet, and Metal Slug. Third option could be anything, or Longo makes me want pinball. Pachinko?
Dodonpachi for reflex training
Virtua Tennis for fun multiplayer
and Whack-a-Mole for anger release. Virtual screen or the classic one goes both, but I have bad memories from unresponsive touch screen and shitty hammer handle. So many blisters in my palms after that night.
Okay, no MAME. How about Time Crisis?
Konami's Police 911 (don't know why they didn't port the game to the Kinect but oh well):
I'm with MattAY with the Mechwarrior pods:
Yeah, obviously. But that's like cheating, man. Still deciding on mine, by the way.
I went apesh*t as a kid everytime I saw that in the arcade.
My dream arcade? and all the machines are actually working? Hmm......... And I have someone to play with every time I play? Hmmm......
Star Wars Trilogy
..... I can't choose between House of the Dead 2 or Time Crisis...................... Fine HotD 2, better bosses in my opinion.
Tekken Tag, you were a very close runner up but nothing beats a go 2 co-op play of HotD2 or a 4 way Gauntlet
Almost forgot another classic.
