60 in 1 Arcade Video Game

I was never an arcade video game person. I vaguely remember a brief stint with Pac Man. Otherwise I spent my coin-op time with pinball. When I was a kid I couldn't get past the idea that there were no free games with video. Nevertheless, I like the whole gameroom/arcade atmosphere and could see the nostalgic appeal of having an arcade video game. I often thought about buying or building something, but didn't get around to it until 2021. Here it is (still under construction)...

I decided to build a 60 in 1 because it seemed reasonably simple and pretty much included every game I remembered and might be inclined to play. I didn't want to do some sort of PC or RetroPie emulation. I love what computers can do, but I hate convincing them to do it. The plug-n-play nature of the 60 in 1 appealed to me. I don't imagine I'll ever work my way through all 60 games. So having access to thousands of games wasn't important.
