    I think it is a great time for pinball but certainly not "the golden age". Especially since so many "new" titles are remakes or otherwise linked to classic titles from the best times of pinball. Now if these titles start to sell so well that it gives companies (probably just Stern) the confidence to get more creative and create their own unlicensed themes/IP and start making 10k+ units to satisfy the masses like Williams ramped up in the early 90s, sure, maybe we enter a new golden age. But I believe we are seeing Stern and some other companies cashing in on the nostalgic and "retro" part of pinball, targeting mostly a group of people that used to play pinball back in the real golden age.
