I didn't argue about that.

Yes NOW they are obsolete, but back then they were the bees knees for Genesis owners. Special Champion Edition, MKII, and SS1 to name a few, represented the Arcade originals well.
Of coarse the console was home to crap ports as well, both Fatal Fury games and World Heroes were awful. Overall, the console had more hits than misses in the 2D fighter genre.
Emulation is pretty nice and about 97% Arcade accurate, but the (good)home ports are still fun to revisit also. Gotta appreciate the programming that went into producing such titles on underpowered hardware.

Fair enough, although there are people that build arcade cabinets around a MAME "console". Looks pretty legit. Not sure about the audio part, though.
Mame & other quality emus are plenty close enough to the Arcade experience. Just because they're not 100.00% perfect doesn't make it any less impressive.
I have an HTPC with MAME set up and I can choose between various Joysticks and even the Saturn 6-button pad. I can say with confidence that MAME is not anywhere near 100% replicating the Arcade games in most cases. MAME is very playable in a great number of cases, but by far not all. So, I call the MAME version of playable Arcade games a different version of these games, but it is not the same.
OK, Olls, I'll try to give you a proper answer since you missed other recent discussions about this subject.
M.A.M.E.: Sounds like crap.
PS2 or newer:
M.A.M.E.: Sounds and plays like shit.
I would be forgiving enough to say that I could call "arcade perfect" a port/emulation in which I couldn't notice any difference in graphics or sound while playing it, both in content and quality. And whose gameplay would feel exactly like the arcade.
If you used to play SS1 and MK games on the arcade you'll need no more than 20-30 minutes to notice that their "arcade perfect" renditions are full of of problems.
And might be a little difficult to judge perfection playing in a handheld, but that's just my opinion.
Those people just want an excuse to say that they have the arcade experience at home. But they are just fooling themselves...

I have a modded XBOX with all those arcade perfect games, Genesis and Snes... but nothing compares to the satisfaction of owning a perfect physical game for the genesis or Sega CD and popping it into a real machine to play them.
Your point is ?
I m simply saying for me, there is nothing better then owning the real games and playing them on my Sega Gen or Cd. The satisfaction of owning them and purchasing the physical games is a great one .
I have an HTPC and I can hardly make myself fire up emulators and play games on the same screen I have my real consoles hooked up to. I also have everdrives for each of my consoles and I rarely use them to actually play games, I hate navigating lists and deciding what I want to play by a ROM name. The box art does such a better job of enticing me.
