So you can send one arcade machine back to the 1980's...what do you choose?

Hypothetical obviously...

I was watching a Youtube video about the evolution of arcade driving games from 1976 to 2018 (evolution of which seemed to plateau in the mid to late 1990's) and I thought how kids of the early 1980's would react if they could play a 'modern' arcade machine.

So for the rules of the game, you can send one arcade machine of your choice back in time.

Any machine from 1990 to 2010 to any date in the 1980's.

You can send it back to a specific games arcade or a random one. If you choose a specific arcade it can't be in your home state or country (so young you doesn't have easy access). The unit will be installed overnight without anyone being aware and be up and ready to play the next morning, suitably fixed so people of that distant era can afford to play it.

The game can't be reverse-engineered, any attempt at all to do so results in the unit melting into an unusable mess.

So what do you send back and why?
