TZ all the way. My first pin and still gets a lot of play. It has great modes, but the key is the powerball. It throws a unique twist to the mode-play of the game. The speed of the powerball is often frustrating, yet it can be very rewarding. Powerball multiball is the best in all of pinball. Theme, design, sound, newbie appeal... it has it all. Best game ever made!

Quoted from TheLaw:

Sadly no lasting power there.

NGG was a quick own for me.

TZ of course.

Longevity for me is very much linked to difficulty. I own several 90 titles and the most played after several years is The Shadow. I understand who sold it after two weeks, because for me too the beginning was not so good. It looked very clunky and random. Its really difficult to master, all shots require to be very precise. But when you become VERY good is the closest machine to a real sport. Actually, like in a real sport, if you are not really on the ball, your performance badly drops even after many years playing it. But not like in a kind of random way like Flash Gordon, for example. As a comparison, I own Wh2O, and although fun and with good variety is much easier than TS, and in the long run it gets played less (but way more popular among casual quite good players). Also, the TS rules, when tweaked properly (see https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/the-shadow-luppin-rules ), offer endless opportunities for experimentation and many different approaches to the game (and much better rewarding scorewise than the Bowen tutorial).

My second machine i’ve ever bought after 14 years i still have it. Many other machines entered and left the house since then.

BSD for me, the only 90 pin i kept.
I find this machine unique. Dark, fast, brutal, gothic... It's just beautiful. I don't like game with dated humor like AFM, MM or MB. BSD is serious and i like that (but Fluffy the vampire make me laugh all the time)

St tng the game is righteous! So much to do and the Picard maneuver might be the best combo in pinball history. Great modes, the artifacts are cool, the playfield layout is jam packed with goodies. Some say TZ is the kitchen sink of pins, I think it's tng. All hands prepare for Multiball!
