Thinking about picking up a new game and was wondering what people thought the "best B-list" WPC DMD game is? Mainly interested in the games in the poll but welcome opinions of others as well.

#2 4 years ago

From the poll Congo for me love that game good sounds cool toys that are very unique the rest are all very fun games as well.

38

White Water is not a "B" list game. It blows away everything on the list.

#4 4 years ago

Fish Tales has some of the best artwork, colors than almost any game ever made
I guess it helps if you love Fishing

#5 4 years ago

I expected to see No Fear included, but that must've made the A List.

This ^ you are going to have a lopsided poll with White Water in there.

Congo is probably bumped up above "B" status now too.

#7 4 years ago

If White Water is an "A" list game, No Good Gophers must be too.

#8 4 years ago
Quoted from RyThom:

Agree

#9 4 years ago

Not sure if you guys or joking or not but I added No Fear to the list.

#10 4 years ago
Quoted from amxfc3s:

No, it should be left as an A game.

#11 4 years ago

Wh20 is the best and most sought after on that list and I'm not sure it's even a (b) title? Congo is good also but theme holds it back. Ft is really good and seems harder to find also. I consider bsd a (b) title and one my favorites and still a good buy today.

#12 4 years ago
Quoted from pinzrfun:

Ngg is still a (b) title do to theme and not so good code. Still a fun pin for 3500-4k

#14 4 years ago
Quoted from zacaj:

Are DM and BR C list then?

I'd say so...

#15 4 years ago

I do not consider White Water a B-list pin by any measure.

#16 4 years ago

The Shadow

#17 4 years ago

Yep, Shadow.

And I own Whitewater as well.

#18 4 years ago

Congo is my choice but you should have included Dirty Harry.

#19 4 years ago

Yep lots of good pins missing off this list and some that probably sldnt b on it. I vote for a do over lol

#20 4 years ago

White Water is not B list. Fix this poll.

#22 4 years ago
Quoted from freakandgeek:

Shadow is A list.

Really? It was a solid B title when I bought it.

Glad to hear it's upped its game and made the grade

#23 4 years ago

These threads should always be titled "Let's argue aboot A & B title lists."

#25 4 years ago

Anytime I'm just scrolling through replies and see the word "aboot", i look over and yep, it's TheLaw!

Breaking the law!

#27 4 years ago

the shadow - epic game for not much money.

#28 4 years ago

no fear sucks, shouldnt' be a b list game.

#29 4 years ago

Is there a documented consensus on which games are A, B, C, ...

Personally I'd do them in this order... and any B+ game would be an easy "answer" to your question.

Order is based upon list of all WPC-DMD games and comparison to Pinside Top 100 and IPDB ratings and my own impression for those that didn't fit nicely... and yes I realize the Pinside Top 100 should be taken with a huge grain of salt):

A-List: (All are top 30 games except for CC)
========================================
Medieval Madness
Attack from Mars
Monster Bash
Twilight Zone
Indiana Jones: The Pinball Adventure
The Addams Family
Tales of the Arabian Nights
Star Trek: The Next Generation
Theatre of Magic
Scared Stiff
Cirqus Voltaire
White Water
Cactus Canyon

B+ List: (All are top 31-50 games except for DW)
========================================
Creature from the Black Lagoon
Bram Stoker's Dracula
Doctor Who
The Shadow
Congo
No Good Gofers
Fish Tales

B List: (All are top 51-100 games)
========================================
The Getaway: High Speed II
Judge Dredd
Indianapolis 500
World Cup Soccer
Road Show
Champion Pub
Safe Cracker
Johnny Mnemonic
Dirty Harry
Terminator 2: Judgment Day

B- List: (All are not on the top 100)
========================================
Demolition Man
Junk Yard
NBA Fastbreak
No Fear: Dangerous Sports
WHO dunnit
Black Rose
Corvette
Hurricane
Jack·Bot
The Party Zone

C List: (debatable but generally panned WPC-DMD games)
========================================
Gilligan's Island
Popeye Saves the Earth
The Flintstones

#30 4 years ago

White Water
Congo
Fish Tales
NO GOOD Gophers

Owned/own them all. These are top 4 in order. I just sold Gophers. The other 3 are some of my favorites in my collection.

Says the guy with two different Jurassic Parks in his collection. lol.

#32 4 years ago

What’s that got to do with anything, lol. Stern one is a top 5 title and the DE is one of their best releases in my opinion, although not as good as Bally/wms machines... I’d rather have DE JP than no fear. Just my personal preference of course.

Yeah!

#34 4 years ago

BSD. Too good for a C title, not quite a top A title.

#35 4 years ago

There is no such thing. You are just making shit up. A title, B title, 417 title, :-: dash dash dot title, boo stinky title, and the bash this not that title. Better, rankings, I like this not that, and other pinball sites have nothing to do with paying thousands of $ for an adult toy. When will people realize that there will always be those that like and dislike the least and the most regarded items in every single thing that exists. I swear, this site has zero to do with pinball lately.

#36 4 years ago

This poll is meaningless without Shadow as a voting option

#37 4 years ago

This feels like 2 lists. A and B.

A titles:

White water
Congo
High Speed 2
Fish Tales

B titles:

Terminator 2
Jackbot
No good Gofers
World Cup Soccer
No Fear

For the record, I would choose Congo, but I know a lot of people like white water. It just isn't my preferred style of game.

#38 4 years ago

SHADOW

#39 4 years ago

Johnny Mnemonic, not even on the list. If this was a better theme it would be an A list game.

#40 4 years ago

Gilligan's Island

#41 4 years ago

Really should consider expanding the circle a bit. There is a ton of fun to be had with system 11 games...Whirlwind, Bad Cats, Earthshaker, etc....great bang for the buck IMO.

Fishtales is better than most A listers and is up there with Whitewater.

#43 4 years ago

I always used the simple definition that B-list pins are ones that you can typically find for <$5K. You don't typically find a decent WH2O or Congo for <5k.

FT is a ton of 'just one more' fun.

#44 4 years ago

I think the OP should just give a dollar amount. That would solve this much quicker.

#45 4 years ago

Obviously everyone has their opinion of what is an A title, B title, etc. Was thinking in the $5k range or below.

#46 4 years ago

Congo is overrated dudes. Owned it. Throw it in that B- pool.

#47 4 years ago

The Shadow, unless it is now A list.

#48 4 years ago

AGREED! ^^^^

Why aren’t Spirit, Fathom, Dragonfist and Quicksilver on this imaginary “A” list people speak about? (Post #29)
