Depends on which one. I've intermittently exprienced this on later-day games. Could be an issue with MAME handling inputs/interacting with your controller; could be the driver of those games, and you know some games share drivers; could be that it *is* slowing down, but only enough for controls input to be affected.
Sometimes triple buffer being enabled can cause this.
Consider it high comedy....sincere tragedy....whatever...don't take it personally.
