Let me wave off all the "why are you asking us what machine you'll like?" and "just go play a bunch of machines and decide" comments and encourage you instead to contribute to the meaningful discussions about pricing bubbles or when Deeproot will deliver. The whole global pandemic has limited me to a lot of window-shopping, so I'd love some thoughts about what machines fit our home.
Not a great player by any stretch, but I enjoy playing pinball, especially pins where I'm trying to accomplish something other than score points. I'm not thinking about stacking multipliers; I want to hit that ramp or loop, collect that character, or complete that mission. For example, I love Theatre of Magic. Had a chance to play Monster Bash (Limited Edition) on site and thought it was a blast. Have a The Shadow right now, and it's challenging enough for me, but would like something with more to do and maybe simpler. Having watched an excessive amount of DeadFlip, I have a decent sense of what Stern's put out recently but wanted to get your thoughts.
What's a fun theme (and pretty family-friendly - don't think Rob Zombie's Spookshow International is going to work) where there's enough depth to play repeatedly but not so challenging that my games are just a couple minutes long?
Am I looking for a The Simpsons Pinball Party ?!
