Harlem Globetrotters is a great, affordable game from this era.

Quoted from Fishmugger:

Fireball 2 only 2600 made

While I respect your opinion of this game, I have to disagree. There are at least 30 machines that are better than FBII... And what does the number produced have to do with the OP's original question? If anything, rarity hurts the opinion that a machine is "the greatest" or "the best", when it sold so poorly.

Please allow for your favorite machine to possibly NOT be the best pinball game ever made. I know, it's a shocker.

I also want to emphasize that the best game in 1975 (EM era) is likely not the best game in 1986. Pinball manufacturers were costantantly trying to one up each other with something new that had never been done before. Theme, gimmicks, art, sound, displays, overall presentation, the list goes on forever.

Personally, I would like the Pinside ratings to have a "BEST of each year" view. That would be sweet and much more telling about how a game matches up in it's historical pinball year.

It's not fair to lump TAF in with Harlem Globetrotters. I mean how do they have ANYTHING at all to do with each other, other than BOTH being 4 player pinball machines with 3 pop bumpers?

Quoted from kursiv:

Oh no many more personal favorites please. And pretend you've never seen Pinball Top 100.

I haven't looked at it in 5 years. I ignore it all costs and redirected the website to point to google on my computer.
