Well, before the inevitable flamestorm of Capcom hate rolls in, I suppose I should say that this is pretty nice. I guess. Granted, I've never heard of any of those games before. :/

I would hope they release the 2 Dungeons and Dragons arcade side scrollers. Those 2 are in my top 10 all time favorite arcade machines. Tower of Doom and Shadow over Mystara.

1942?
1942!?
Machine at the local kebab shop, your days are numbered.
I've spent way to much money on playing that game.

When I saw "Avengers," I had hopes that it was the 4-player "Captain America and the Avengers".....until I remembered that game was made by Data East and not Capcom

Now if only Konami would re-release the Simpsons Arcade game.

Now you're just being facetious, nobody goes to kebab shops anymore.

It was re-released last year. It's on XBLA and PSN.

OT: This looks like a rather good collection. Hopefully it won't cost too much.
