it's probably only fun if you played it when it was new.
the only thing i really bought (for the emulation setup) was a $20 gamepad from gamestop. definitely worth it, and the analog stick is great for driving games and decent for fighting games. my hp pavilion has 4 usb ports, so with 4 gamepads you can easily play x-men arcade or wrestlefest.
another thing with those retro systems is that you don't know how much longer the hardware is good for. though neo geo is rereleasing a $200 handheld soon (also has a dock which looks like the original aes). i might get that.
