How far would you travel before considering doing MAME? Like how far would you drive monthly to play your single most favorite Arcade game before giving into the darkside and playing via MAME?
Some of us are total purists and wouldn't even touch MAME with a zero-lag controller. So perhaps the question may not apply to you. But..
Back in the day as a kid, I could usually con a ride out of the parents or grandparents as far as 15 miles away. Today we all have cars and the funds to fly cross-country if needed. But having done some of that I don't care to repeat any of it. And today I wouldn't go further than a walk down the block. And even then I'd be too lazy and still do MAME.
I did a few drives to Galloping Ghost and Underground Retrocade and found the experience just ok. Not like it was back in the 80's. Back in the 80's it was an Adventure! An adventure into a virtual world. Today it felt like going into a warehouse.
