    Golden Age? Let's consider the year 1977, including just the big four manufacturers, and only those games that we have production numbers for. Bally, Gottlieb, Williams, and Stern shipped just shy of 200,000 pinball machines in 1977 alone! It took pretty much the entire 1990s decade to even come close to matching production for that one year.
