I want to get a gamepad for playing mame arcade games. Something like a ps2 style pad for about £10.

What are the best arcade games? While some are basic, there's a lot that are still very impressive (visually and playability). My favourites at the moment are

Nam 75
Marvel superheroes v street fighter
Esp Ra.De. (has anyone played this game?)

I use Microsoft's X-Box controller and it's very good for my racing games!

I've tried cheapo PC gamepads before, and they've been nowhere near as precise as regular console gamepads. I use a wired a Xbox 360 pad with MAME on my PC, and it's great.

Many of my favourite games of all time are old arcade games, including:-

Galaxian
Gorf
Galaga
Moon cresta
Phoenix
Xevious
Defender
Stargate
Centipede
Millipede
Joust
Robotron 2084
Battlezone
Missile Command


I don't like later stuff, because they introduced the 'Continue' feature, which imo spoils games like these.

Those games are a bit too old for me but I'm sure they're good.
