I was in a hotel last Janurary and they had the "Lodgenet" system with a Super Nintendo. For about $6.95 an hour, you could play "Final Fight" or "Donkey Kong Country 2", "Super Punchout", "F-Zero" and a few other games. Additionally, the system had exclusive "games" which included a tetris rip-off, picture puzzles and...I kid you not....tic-tac-toe. Now....I believe this brings up an interesting question. If no sane person would ever want to find a game,can that game truely be lost?
Went to the hotel with one of those pay N64s. Tried to plug a real N64 in, but their menu program took up the AV channel of the TV. Bastards!
I think it was called the "Super Nintendo Gateway System" was started in like '95, and I remember they had SMW, F-Zero, SFII (the original one), Tetris, Dr. Mario, the mixed match game from the combo cart, and possibly Ken Griffey Jr. (the first one) as never-changing choices. The ones I can remember being there as the "changing" part of the lineup were Kirby's Avalanche, Lost Vikings, and Blackthorne. They probably were the same as the cart games (I'm not paying $6.95/hour to find out, which is actually a hike of the $5.95 price I remember) except that SMW and F-Zero obviously had the saving disabled. I can't remember if the 2 Player options were disabled (since they only had one controller, you couldn't play a 2-player game except SMW anyways).

Yeah, I've ran across those a few times before. Another intrestng set-up was quite a few years back, when I got put in the hospital. The children's side had this weird SNES rig that was basically a TV with neon green and purple plastic on the tv, and a SNES with a few games on a tray underneath. The weird thing was that all the carts were attached via a chain that had been put on each cart that went back to a part of the stand. Haha, those kids never got it back, I played games on it everyday.
