Drinking with some buddy's playing Harlem Globetrotters and the question came up what is the best game featuring African Americans. My buddy with the Harlem says it's the best, I think Independence Day is better. Who is right or are we both wrong and there is something better.

#2 2 years ago

You should start a poll. I vote Harlem Globetrotters.

#3 2 years ago

Easy: STTNG.

Edit to add any game featuring Ernie Hudson. Both GB and Congo feature him on the back glass.

Kiss ass.

You don't have too agree with him, he's not going to kick you out.

Best green dude is on Trident not that I'm biased owning one

No green. This thread is to vote for African American centric games.

Gottlieb Volley. I’m a big tennis fan so I’m pretty interested in this game. I read somewhere that this was a unique game in that Gottieb featured a black tennis player on the play field. This was during the era when Arthur Ashe was dominant in the men’s game. Pretty cool.

Ali !!!

I'd like to say Minstrel Man, but that may upset some

Star Trek 25th has Uhura
you also have Don Cheadle inside the War Machine costume in Ironman

#13 2 years ago

Ice-T in JM and Snipes in DM are both good

#14 2 years ago

I forgot about Ghost Busters, shit that might be better than ID4

#15 2 years ago

Minstrel Man for the win.

Green is a colour , you can't be choosy and by the way so is yellow brown white etc. etc.
thats racist saying no green.

#17 2 years ago

Stern Star Trek pro and premium has Zoe Saldana on it. Also from Avatar and Guardians of the Galaxy

Allied Leisure's Boogie featured Jimmy Walker and a black woman too.

Agreed...shameless plug, I have one of these for sale right now...

Globetrotters easily

#27 2 years ago

I know it doesn’t exist, but I’d love to see a Black Panther machine or Old School Rap themed music pin.

I’ll take it a step further. Modes could be rap battles against different rappers or groups.

#35 2 years ago

Playmatic had a 2nd game that would qualify...Rio

Harlem Globetrotters is way better than Independance Day . Star Trek the Next Generation is better than both togather .

#37 2 years ago

Ali or Harlem

biggie vs. 2 pac, east vs west, forced stacked mode battles...yeah, I see it. If west wins, get an Cube today was a good day victory MB, east winds get an Ol' Dirty MB... Have a middle of the road New Orleans Master P "ugghh" sound from the pops..collect enough pops points at any time and qualify for the Getto Dope hurry up...makemakemake crack like this...yeah, sounds cool man. Hard to think who'd be in to make this masterpiece...We talk about licensing...suck to have Suge Knight knocking on Stern's doors for not coming clean on the royalties!

#39 2 years ago

Funny that you’d forget this one since you own it, but how about TWD, it’s got Michonne on the cabinet.

#40 2 years ago

Playmatic's New World.

It’s kind of sad that these are the best examples we can come up with. I realize there’s a lot of overlap with pinball and typical “old white guy stuff,” but it’d be nice if someone could make a universal theme that happened to feature a person of color.

There is a Pink Panther!! Hey pink's a color!!

Big Indian
Aztec
Boomerang
Big and Little Chief
Keeney Arrowhead

Ac Dc Luci???

Jurassic Park, weird it has Samuel Jackson on the call outs but, he is missing from the art work. I can't believe that a Spawn pinball machine has never been made.

And JJPOTC.

NBA Fastbreak (Better than Stern NBA IMHO)

Man do I hate the term "person of color". African American will do just fine.
