Many a debate on that. Like some car collectors like a car all original, crappy faded paint, cracked leather, and all, whereas some collectors want the car restored to look like factory new.
Me personally, if you want to play it and enjoy it, go LCD. If you want to restore it as a retro-arcade showpiece, go CRT.
Did you say Baby Pacman? Sweet pinball video hybrid, dude!
