Anybody ever get to play the giant Battletech setup? Nothing short of awesome right there.

As for personal favorite, it will always be the three-player AVP cab that Capcom released. Three players, slaughtering hordes of aliens, all at the same time. Awesome. I love multiple-man beat em up cabs, like six-player X-men, four-player Simpsons, four-player Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, four-player Captain America and the Avengers...some of the most fun I've ever had in the arcade were on these kinds of machines.

I got to play it once at a Dave & Buster's in Chicago. The software at the time was essentially a modified Mechwarrior 4. I was the only one in our group who'd even heard of Battletech before (it was a prom after-party) so even with the guy running it playing, I completely dominated everyone. It didn't help that I was running an Atlas while everyone else was running medium mechs (the employee was running a Chimera).

Bah, you should have grabbed a Novacat. Real men only kill with short range Long Tom artillery and Death From Above...

Real men play infantry in MechWarrior mods. Nothing quite like dropping a mech while on foot.

How about an Elemental, like in Mechwarrior Living Legends? Those buggers are annoying as hell, especially if you don't have weaponry suited for taking them down.
