Top 3 Arcade Auction choices

Okay....FonMan's awesome post about arcade machine auctions got me thinking. If you went to an auction, what 3 games would you most want to find/bid on?

My choices:

Robotron
Star Wars Pinball
Super Street Fighter: Championship Edition

Pinball, Pinball, and Pinball.

Oh, and maybe Track and field with the trackball. I think I only got passed the Hammer Throw once, and that was only recently.

The House of the Dead
Soul Calibur
Total Carnage

I would also like to get Ghouls'n Ghosts/Ghosts'n Goblins and Splatterhouse, except for the fact that they're some of the most impossible games I've ever played, so I wouldn't have as much fun as with the other games on my list.

Only three? Oh boy. Where to start...

I think for my first three, I would go:

Pac-Man Cocktail Table
Galaga
Donkey Kong

I know, common choices but those are what I would REALLY want. Of course, I would later want to find a X-Men six player, D&D and Ice Cold Beer aomong others.

I was only able to play this with trackball once, mostly played buttons with the guards. Ouch! HyperSports would be good as well. Are those available on the MAME consoles?

Definately none of this new shiet.

Super Don Quixote - Dedicated
Discs Of Tron - Environmental
The Last Starfighter - Prototype which doesn't exist

so then my 3rd is a toss up between Tron/720/M.A.C.H. 3/Gyruss/Track and Field/Indiana Jones/John Elways Quarterback/Cyberball/Karate Champ

mmmm.... I haven't been to an arcade in years so none of my wants would even be remotely recent...

1. Ms. Pac Man Cocktail
2. Star Wars Pinball
3. ...maybe Galaga... or Cyberball... or a Street Fighter 2 variation....

FINE.....FINE....FINE.....

I was thinking of SF II:Championship Edition

Man, I almost forgot about 720and the X-MEN (6 player)...good calls there. I might need to rethink the list.

Anyone remember the arcade version of Tecmo Football?
