imagine you had a spare nintendo cabinet and the choice of converting it to any classic nintendo game except donkey kong, donkey kong jr. and donkey kong 3, which game would you choose?

how about donkey kong ii - jumpman returns?



or what about popeye?



why not do a radarscope (picture courtesy of bruno Cool)?



then again, a dedicated dr mario might also be a cool idea ... ?



or perhaps something completely different? let's hear from you guys!!! Space Ace

Hoho!!! I'm sure this topic will kick ass soon!  Kiss

OK, if I had a spare Ninty' cab, I would go for an other RED Donkey Kong! That would allow me to reverse back my current 'RED ONE' DK into its original state : RadarScope.
In your case, I would say two choices : DK2 because the new artworks are so gorgeous and even the game looks terrible (but I never played it so far tbh) or ...Dr Mario because... mhhh ... I dunno why, but when I'm thinking about Superully, I'm immediately thing about the GREEN color...  Grin
In addition, no one has it! So that's the one you have to have  Cool  Wink

I would go for Popeye or Radar Scope, Popeye is the best and RS is the rarest and also great game IMHO.

Popeye! It looks the best and the game is also fun. I like dr Mario but the vs control panels and no side art suck. Dk2 is a waste of an original Nintendo cab IMO.

i would say radarscope because of the history behind it, i mean no radarscope, no redcab donkey kong!

I also like DK2, but its not an original cab, although the sidearts are cool, it is better inside a DK as a upgrade.

i agree with what you guys said: popeye would probably be choice number one, because it is a fun game with fabulous artwork.

as for dkII, although it would be cool to have just to complete the dk lineup, why not simply throw the add-on into a dk cab and switch between games, after all, the four original levels are also included in the game.

and then there's radar scope: not an all time classic, but it was there before donkey kong, so it deserves it's place amongst the nintendo games. i'd rate the gameplay as ok (not sucky, not brilliant), but the sounds are somewhat annoying, don't you think?

Popeye has my vote. Fun game, cool cab art and that blue is a stunner. Smiley

There was never a dedicated Dr. Mario, that picture is from a guy from KLOV that did it in green, coz he thought it looked cool, and it does!!!
I would go for a D2K!

there never was a dedicated DKII either (nor was there a dedicated bubble bobble Wink), but i like what the guy did with dr mario, although i'm no fan of that generic control panel. although we have been blessed with nintendo cabs because of the paul50s' bulk buy, i still wished there would be more around to fulfill everyone's nintendo dream ...

nice topic

I like the green Dr. Mario.

I would make a Popeye, or create one myself for Castlevania which is a kickass game, with kickass music and this pic as side-art:

I would paint the cab nintendo grey, like the 8 bit system cabinet. Buttons red.

the intro screen could function as the marquee:


or I would make a Goonies from the vs. series. Print nice side art from the movieposter, paint the cab Nintendo grey or black


Also I would like the Back to the Future nintendo cab.


here's another rare Nintendo cab
