What games should be in a future Jacksonville FL arcade?

So it's gonna happen "wink wink" sooner than later.
What is a pinball machines or two and video game or two that you'd like to see in it?

Also, this isn't theoretical trolling for the record.

as in a full time Arcade?
there isnt a hard and fast rule as such, as it depends on your target crowd, if you are aiming for the older generation then yeah you want the stable classics, if you are aiming for a younger crowd, then the 90's stuff etc, as for Pins, something that is universal, movie tieins, cheap DMD, not older stuff, as wont keep the attention

So far there will be 5 or 6 "classics"
about 10 vids from the 90s
and the goal is 6 pinball machines (90s) when it's all in gear and in place.

I like this visualization in my mind.
We'll build up to more than a half a dozen pinball machines but most likely 6 to start with.

Go for as much square footage as you can afford and fill it to the gills with both pin and video. Any idea as to how you will charge? by the day, 1/2 day, or by the game play .25 ea./.50 ea ??
I'm sure if some of the Villagers had an option to place machine on location they would.

Sorry for the delay in reply.
The 80s/90s games are 25 cents a play
Beat em ups are 25 cents
SF2 15th is 50 cents start and 25 cents continue
All pinball is 50 cents.
