Which one would you guys pick out of these games? popeye would be the cheapest and then baywatch and most expensive would be dh. Let's say they are all decent condition. And it would be really helpful if you could list the reason for your choosing or not choosing that certain game. Thanks guys

Dirty Harry

Reason: It's better than the other ones.

#3 1 year ago

Baywatch. One of the best bang for the buck and underrated pins out there.

#4 1 year ago

May I ask, why these 3 games. All 3 of these games are are asking real money. And for very similar money you could get so many other games that many would rank a lot higher. T2 comes to mind or a JP. Don't get me wrong I love my baywatch but i got it at a great price. If I had to cast a vote put me down for Baywatch.

I’ve got a Dirty Harry, it’s surprisingly fun. Kind of underrated and not too expensive. I picked it up in a trade and definitely enjoying it.

#6 1 year ago

Yeah, price would be a factor in this comparison. Dirty Harry is the better game if price isn't a consideration. While I like T2 and JP, I would have to respectfully disagree that they are better games than DH. Just my opinion.

Baywatch & Popeye are very deep, with a great degree of difficulty, games. I own both & love them.

#8 1 year ago

I used to have a DH. Great game. I miss it sometimes.

#9 1 year ago

Dirty Harry all the way!

#10 1 year ago

Once owned a Dirty Harry. Very good "bang for the buck".

#11 1 year ago

Baywatch is a very fun underated game, which ive spent a fair bit of time on an would like to have one day, its very family friendly an not to hard to figure out, ive only played dirty harry a few times so cant give to much of an opinion on but i did think it was great an would love to put more time on it. Unfortunately popeye did nothing for me , but im sure theres some good features maybe i just didn't see them.

Spent some time on a DH and Baywatch last weekend. I have to say I enjoyed playing Baywatch more. Just a fun game if not taken too seriously. DH has a lot of things going for it but none of it really seemed to come together for me. Art and presentation pretty weak. It's probably a decent game if you can get one cheap and get it playing well. Popeye is not that bad but not all that great either.

jp and terminator 2 are very much entry level pins. Baywatch and dirty harry are a step above both of them.

Dirty harry by miles. Fantastic pin.

Baywatch has a fantastic layout and pretty darn good rules. It’s the easy winner here. If it was a Bally/Williams with a decent theme it would be in the top ten handily. Instead it’s a Sega with a giant Hasselhoff Head.

Dirty Harry for the win

#18 1 year ago

I own Baywatch and Dirty Harry love both games but I vote dirty Harry all the way.

#19 1 year ago

I've only played Dirty Harry maybe 10 times total and I walked away thinking that it didn't make my day.

#20 1 year ago

As the poll shows, both BW and DH are great games. Both are also very different.

I vote buy them both as they go well in a collection together.

#21 1 year ago

Dirty Harry is a great game, don't hesitate.

#22 1 year ago

All things being close, don't pass on DH unless Baywatch is substantially cheaper and in much better condition. Otherwise, I'm taking Clint all the way. Both are total sleepers, but sooner or later DH will stop being undervalued--prices are already creeping up for a nice one. Baywatch isn't ever going to get elevated past the cheesiness that is associated with it. Put a powered sub on Dirty Harry--you'll be blown away by the excellent bass in the soundtrack.

#23 1 year ago

I have owned all three at one time still have the Popeye. Love it and not going anywhere soon.

#24 1 year ago

DH for pete's sake.

#25 1 year ago

not a fan of any of those themes, but Dirty Harry is the best playing game of that bunch.

Baywatch all day. DH is for B/W fan bois

#27 1 year ago

Poopy sucks

#28 1 year ago

I'm asking about these games cuz where I live, games are not so abundant like the east coast or cali so gotta work with what I can find. I mean sure I can buy games from other states but I'm trying not to buy games unseen as my previous out of state purchases weren't good.

#29 1 year ago

Dirty Harry is one of my least favorite B/Ws and id steer clear of it even if you weren’t putting it up against my favorite pinball of all time (Baywatch). Cool theme and cabinet, but the gameplay has never grabbed me.

Popeye is unique, bizarre and one of a kind. Best to play one thoroughly yourself before deciding one way or another.

#30 1 year ago

Not a fan of Popeye. The center is too cluttered up IMO. Good theme though, would be a good remake theme.
