At the time the NeoGeo was a beast, but the games were as over-priced as the console.
Having the NeoGeo was like having an Arcade machine in your room. A lot of the arcade machines from that era had NeoGeo's inside them, so people thought they were playing custom arcades, but in fact it was just a console inside the cabinet; you really couldn't tell the difference though, they were that good at the time.
Only problem with them was that most people could not afford them.
