Quoted from Methos:
Neither MM, AFM, nor MB are worth 8K IMO. Maybe 5 years ago, but will all the new games out the past few years and those on the way - there is much more fun to be had out there for a much cheaper price.
Great games have been released in the past five years, fully agree on that. But which of those is a light hearted game "based" mainly on humor. I'm a sucker for campy humor, also got a LotR, Shadow, TZ...but I always, each and every time I'm in the gameroom, play a game of MB before i leave. MB was my first pin many years ago. It's always a relaxing and fun experience, it shoots great, you can always achieve at least something even on a bad day, it has great toys and the callouts make me smile over and over again (same with the callouts in AFM).
If I didn't already have a MB but wanted to buy an accessible, humor based, great for guests of all ages, colorful & fun, fast shooting game that pulls off a great show - which one if the last 5 years should i choose?
Actually, after thinking about it analytically, with every new machine coming out that has complicated rulesets and "serious" themes the likeliness that there will be more humor-based light hearted games in the future decreases...making MM, AFM & MB even more unique and valuable gameplay wise and in $.
Why do you think MMR, being the 20 year old machine it is, is selling well even at 8K?
