Relatively New Pinball Fan

Written by aingide, published October 9th, 2011. 4 comment(s).

I've been a video game fan all my life and have only recently started seriously getting into pinball.

I went to California Extreme 2011 in anticipation of playing arcade games like Street Fighter II and The Simpsons, but found myself walking past the video machines and right up to a bank of DMD pins.  Five or six hours later I was hooked.

With the popularity of Xbox Live, and a return to competetive games with an emphasise on high scores and community, there's a HUGE opportunity for pinball to explode in popularity once again.

    California Extreme '11 was pretty epic IMO. Glad to see it got you hooked on Pinball. Welcome to Pinside!
