    spiderman didn't make the 64 pin tourney? And STTNG? Where did this list come from? Those are top 10 to 15 machines, regardless of whose list you are using.

    I feel the same way about TFTC, as there are a few there that TFTC is better than.

    I think they were against big pins early on. Bad draw for them.

    EDIT: Just looked and they are still there. Scroll down to the bottom of the page to see all the matchups.

    am wondering if he is breaking up the voting due to the high number of votes he has to hand tally across multiple sites and email.
