IMO, The original Shionbi is one of the most perfectly packaged arcade games ever. It's easy to pick up, it has decent graphics, good sound, it has a very balanced learning curve, it feels fair to the player, its nicely portioned into stages, missions and the bonus stages for variation, its just the right length (overall), and it's definitely beatable with one coin, but it takes time to get that good. And even after you beat it, it has replay value as there are bonuses for remaining time, not using ninja magic and clearing bonus levels.
Not perfect, but damn close, in my opinion.
I have to agree here. I have sooooo many old favourite arcade games but if I was to pick the absolute best then it would have to be Shinobi
