Hello Everyone. There was a thread recently looking at Champion Pub, its merits and its value in the marketplace. Iv been reading/thinking a lot about newer games. It seems to me that its nigh impossible to evaluate a game until its been out for at least a couple years. Avengers, ACDC, XMEN, TF, even as far back as Tron get criticized and cheer-leaded less on the merits of the game but more because of how people are invested in it.
So Id like to look back at a game that we can all agree is beyond that era, and its a game that doesn't often get looked at very deeply. A game that isn't talked about much. Stern's Indiana Jones.
First, a few numbers:
IJ4 was released in 2008 by Stern. Designed by Borg. Pinside has the Software listed as by Lopp, but IPDB lists Ropp, Sheets, Keefer, and Sullivan.
It is currently listed as #197 and IPDB has it at #258. Seems like pretty bad numbers, yet it still commands a somewhat heavy pricetag.
What are the games merits? Is the game priced on theme alone? In what kind of collection does it belong? Talk amongst yourselves.
