Just couldn't get into it.
I wouldn't say I regret owning any pin, but there are several I was really glad to see tha back of! The good thing about owning them is I got to play them and to realise I don't want them again, so no regrets there... Ones that had to go are Striker Extreme, RCT, Tron, Dr Who, RFM, Twister, TFTC, TAF... the list goes on
X files that pin sucks couldn't wait for it to leave now whenever I play a sega I get bad juju... the one I regret selling believe it or not was a hook that was a fun game oddly enough the windcoaster ramp was really fun
Roadshow. 2 heads aren't better than one.
And a few older bally/sterns like Seawitch, Mata Hari, .. didn't really like them.
Black Hole, mainly because I had a hell of a time getting it, including calling in a few favors - thanks JarJar! Then when I finally got it home and set up I found out I didn't really care for it. That bitch weighs a ton, too!
Also T2, mostly for monetary reasons. Lost a couple hundred on the sale, but it went to a friend who really enjoys it so it's all good.
I hear you. It's also crazy to see so much hate for TSPP. We're talking about the greatest ruleset in all of pinball and one of the funniest pins ever. I suck at it and can't even get to AI, but I know greatness when I see it.
Can't say that I do. Any games I bought, that I didn't want to keep, were bought specifically to sell. I've purchased quite a few games just to restore and sell.
Quoted from RWH:
I know a lot of people on here really like both of these pins but, I got a Gorgar and didn't care for it so I sold it and bought a Black Knight and didn't care for it either.
Shows how different everyone is, I absolutely love both of those games. Then some of the games collectors go crazy over I just don't see what the big deal is. That's the beauty of pinball, there are so many different games to fit everyone's tastes.
I am glad I bought them to try out, and experience the gameplay. But in the end regretted buying them and could not sell them fast enough, big guns, whiteWater (I know I know), and demo man. For whatever reason I could not get into them, I tried really hard to like demo man, put about 60 games on it, and someone asked me to sell it, and I never looked back. Got my original investment (minus gas and travel of course)
Whitewater was such a hunk of junk, I am thinking I need to try harder to learn the age, but it just seems so.......blah, slow music....dunno, maybe I just sucked at the game
Owned it for a few months and sold it for what I had into it.
Drop Targets & that is it, one time around per ball. Game Play was yuck and no plunger shot for the most part.
Played it for 2 years straight in high school and loved it and that's why I bought it.
Some things I liked 35 years ago is not what I like now and this game falls into that category.
"Spirit of 76" is what replaced it and will stay in my collection. Funny thing is as a kid I did not really care for the SO76, go figure.
