First arcade cabinet you have try

What is the first arcade cabinet you have try and if you can remember how munch did you spend on it.

Mine is Black Tyger by capcom and I spent 5$ I think, my mom give me that money to buy lunch but I lose it playing this game.

One of my fav places to play it was at aj arcade inside a nearby airport
Also double dragon
Mario bros was at a local pizza place along with Goonies and I played those a lot

I'm an old fart at 41 lol so my first cabinet was probably Pac-Man but I remember sinking some serious cash into Black Tyger at a bowling alley we use to go to. I was just thinking about that game a few days ago. Crazy! It was a cool game.
I also love The Legend of Kage. It was ported to Nintendo later but wasn't very good. Loved that game. You could jump and fly through trees and slice the heck out of people. I remember the first time I played Double Dragon. That game was darn near life changing for me.....ah I miss arcades!

My first was Pac Man when I was about 8 years old. My grandfather would take me and my sisters to the grocery store every Friday and it was by the exit doors. I think it was 25 cents. The store eventually got rid of it because a crowd of teenagers was always blocking the door.
