I am in the market for one final pin to add to my collection. I already have MET Prem, TWD Prem, GB Prem. I can't fit more than four. I've modded the living daylights out of my other machines and simply love them and will not sell them until I am ready to down size/retired which is another 12-15 years away.

Unfortunately, I dont have time to travel to shows to actually test drive new pins, so I have to make a selection based off user feedback, game play videos , and overall appearance and layout.

Factors in my overall decision making process from most important to least:

game play longevity
overall aesthetics (artwork, mod-ability)
fun factor

I have narrowed down my selection to five targeted pins in the following order from highest to lowest.

Dead Pool Prem - Love the artwork, fan of dead pool, game play seems open
MMR - Instant classic, Nice artwork, concerned about repetitiveness and longevity of game play
Pirates of the Caribbean LE - art
Iron Maiden Prem - I am not a fan of band music, I heard good things about game play
GOTG Prem - Feedback seems that the code is better than launch but repetitive, I already own Metallica and has a similar layout

I'd love to get some feedback based on my requirements.

Thanks, all!

Mbr not on your list but it’s amazing.

MBR is a beautiful game but I am not crazy about the game play longevity.

I would get maiden but if you don't like the theme dead pool is a great choice.

POTC- Great long ball time, variety of things to do and numerous shots that feel great. Can't go wrong with this title.

Of your choices, I like MMr just for variety. Deadpool is a blast, though. Those 2 would be my picks.

Based on your collection I'd say Deadpool or IronMaiden.

I couldn't name a single maiden song prior to buying it, but its one of the best games I've ever owned imo. To me, the music is just pinball background music as I play the game

From your list of preferences, I would say Deadpool fits the best. It's getting a lot of love right now so pretty safe bet gameplay wise.

For me, fun factor is #1 and that would be Iron Maiden. Gameplay is superb but theme sucks. I also don't think great games have to be super deep. MM would make for nice variety since you don't have any classics.

I don't see keeping the same lineup for 12-15 years. Why not trade out a game every year or so?

If they were stock I would consider but I still have fun playing them and I've modded the living crap out of them - they look so sexy.

If you want more of the same then I’d go with IMDN or DP. IMDN has the better, smoother layout, but DP is a ton of fun/humor. If you want some variety in game play style then POTC is amazing, but I think it is more suited to someone who has above average skills and likes the challenge/strategy of deep rules.

POTC also has the best mods by far.

Quoted from luckymoey:

I am realizing POTC LE will be hard to get locally as you can't get NIB anymore. For some reason I was under the impression they were still available for JJP. I am not going to spend 10K for a used one.

I'm not a maiden music fan, but it grows on you, some songs I've never heard b4 I owned game I really like. It's a great game, never gets old. Dont know how you can go wrong with it.
