TZ - My favorite, all time.
ACDC - A simple layout with excellent rules, and endless scoring strategies.
WOF - Nudging. Nudging. Nudging. Really interesting and unique rules even though I dislike the theme.
IM - Open, fast, and leaves you frustrated and wanting one more game.
TSPP - Up until recently, I disliked this game. But if I only get 10, I know this is one of the deepest and I can't think of another game with a wider variety of shots.
WPT - Huge open playfield. Drop targets galore. Unique and interesting rules.
AFM - Great humor. Simple gameplay. Accessible to all. I actually like MM better, but the inconsistent kickouts from the moat and STDM castle drains annoy me and I want to use this slot on something nice, easy, and predictable.
SM - This might be the game I have the most fun on consistently. It feels like I can keep the ball alive forever, but in a "this is rewarding" way, not a "this is easy" way. Great theme integration.
CFTBL - Love the look, sounds, theme integration, unique layout, and superb, but simple rules. Most games feel "over" once I've hit the big jackpot. With CFTBL, I just want to work back through to it again.
T2 - Nostalgia. Before last year, 90% of my lifetime plays were on T2.

Ok seriously, 10 machines is harder to choose than I thought... But luckily I already have 6/10. Can we have 15 instead?

Quoted from TheDrewster:

Can we have 15 instead?

Nope but you can designate pins that will rotate.

Note that this is not necessarily your top 10 list: more like the combination of pins you would like to have in your house at a given time.

Quoted from Hawk007:

I know right...Maverick is one of the best DE games for sure ! Whoops I said it too lol But we like LW3 too... Did you know the first prototypes of Maverick were widebodys and had regular dmds in them...I would LOVE one of those. Only reason I sold mine was the large dmd.

Is it DE? Is it Sega? Even the game doesn't know

I did know that, as well as different art I believe too for the main three actors.

I was worried as well, but now with the DIY colour DMD, there's a cheaper, better option if it fails.

Quoted from chuckwurt:

Funhouse
The Big Lebowski
Big Game
Demo Man
Centaur
Sopranos
Jurassic Park
T2
Fathom
Monster Bash
I don't own any of these, but I bet I have most of them in the next ten years.

One down nine to go.

I'll thow my dream line up in there.....

1.MM - original
2. MB
3. CV
4. WOZ
5. CFTBL
6. MET LE version (graphics)
7. AC/DC premium / LE
8. LOTR
9. TSPP
10 - open - for traders or rotating stock. Looking for any Congo, TZ, CC, Champion Pub, Whirlwind etc.

The Hobbit and TWD look good but until I actually play one of them I can't in all honesty add them to the best 10 list

Edit: I take back Hobbit and TWD. I have watched every video, clip, and picture I can find of both and I no longer like either. My #10 spot is now open for whatever deal comes down the road

#110 4 years ago

I am sure this list will change through time but as of now here is what I'd rock if I had endless money.
In no order:
LOTR
TSPP
TAF
Congo
Stargate
TOTAN
Champ Pub
Metallica
TBL
TOM

Every pin would have to be in a low play HUO/mint condition, mod'd out and LE versions.
In no specific order:

Lord of the Rings LE
The Simpsons Pinball Party
Wizard of OZ LE
Attack from Mars
Monster Bash
Medieval Madness
The Addams Family Gold
Tales of the Arabian Nights
Big Bang Bar
Cactus Canyon

Games just out that I need to play, and which game I would substitute for in my top ten:
The Big Lebrowski - TSPP
The Walking Dead - AFM
RAZA - WOZLE
The Hobbit - LOTR

#114 4 years ago

PS: if the last Expo made you change your mind, you can still edit your selection. Will analyze it in a few weeks.

#115 4 years ago

LOTR
The Hobbit
No Good Gofers
Jungle Queen
2001
Fathom
Wizard Of Oz
Simpsons Pinball Party
Genie
Timeshock

I find it heartening to see a wide range of lists that aren't just 90s-era Bally/Williams focused. Lots of SS and EMs, lots of excitement for games forthcoming or love for the last decade.
