      I have always enjoyed both video and pinball games.  As a kid, I enjoyed the challenge of pinball over video games as there was more of a "mechanical feel" to playing pinball games.  The path of the ball was predictable (within reason) and the feeling of playing pins just got to me.  In college, I worked a few hours a week in a laundromat that had ~19 pinball games and ~8 video games.  Over the few years I worked there, we turned over a number of the pinball games, providing the opportunity to play a variety of different pins. 

      I am looking to purchase a few for my "personal collection".  After being away from pins for a while, I'm surprised that the games are priced significantly higher than they were in the 1990's.  Biggest fan of Bally / Williams games as they seem to have "the best feel" with regard to playfield experience.  Mainly looking at pins from the late 1980's through the early 1990's but certainly open to others if they are good!
