I recently bought a STTNG. The only other pinball that I have ever owned was a Stargate and I had that for a couple of years. Not a bad machine by all accounts but I've probably played my STTNG more in the last month than I played Stargate the entire time I had it. Sad I know but to me this clearly illustrates the differences between a good machine and a truly great one.
There are some machines out there that go for crazy prices e.g. MM, BBB etc. I've never played BBB and I have only ever played MM on a virtual pin (I thought it was OK but I don't think I would pay 10K for it).. I'm going to ask a silly question.. Why are these pins so sort after? I get that they are great machines.. I understand that some pins are better than others..
Maybe I just need to play an MM for real.. It must be a freaking awesome pinball machine..
