If it were me....I would just buy the boys/family a nintendo wii. It is fun for all different ages and you can purchase different games for different interests. I have a nintendo wii and my ENTIRE family....parents, siblings, etc. all LOVE it. It seriously makes for endless amounts of fun and playing. Also, it can help your boys/family bond a little more.

There are full size arcade systems that can play multiple systems but you're better off going to mame.com and getting some game roms & playing off your pc. If you really want an arcade game, you can probably pick up a classic game for under $500

I know this won't be immediately popular but I think the Nintendo n64 is a good choice. It's cheap and there's a huge library of good games. And it has a collectible angle the others don't have.

Yeah, a Nintendo Wii would probably be best for your family. It's affordable and has a wide range of games to appeal to. Perhaps best of all it has great 'same-room' multiplayer (everyone playing together in the family den, or something). Great fun (and funny) times for all.
