    I still think it's Sorcerer's Lair, followed by all 7 SW games.... That being said, I kinda enjoy The Walking Dead and South Park, don't like much the Marvel games, and absolutely hate the soccer games...

    And you, what's your thoughts?

    Star Wars rebels. It has fantastic flow and the rule set is very easy since it's easy to start modes. The ball times aren't super long either.

    Sorcerers lair is one of my favorites also but ball times are very long.

    The cartman table is one of my favorites. I also like SW rebels as well. Portal is also pretty good

    #5 4 years ago

    I'd have to agree that all the star wars tables are awesome, but I also enjoyed the soccer table, even if it does get repetitive.

    That being said, I haven't been playing nearly as much since getting real pins.

    Edit: Just opened up steam to check how long it's been since I played, and it's been about 3 weeks. However, I have logged 273 hours total which seems like a lot...

    Fear itself

    #7 4 years ago

    Thats my second favorite

    #8 4 years ago

    Iron Man. The wizard mode is near impossible. Spent over 5 months and finally completed it. After that all the other tables felt easy by comparison.

    Also really liked Thor.

    #9 4 years ago

    Darth Vader and Return of Jedi, but I love Moonnight too, really all them are fun.

    #10 4 years ago

    I play Epic Quest more than the others.

    #11 4 years ago

    I tended to lean toward the original themes when I played it like Sorcerer's Lair, Biolab, and Secrets of the Deep but I did enjoy the humor of Deadpool.

    Sorcerers Lair for me too. Love it. Would absolutely buy a real one if ever made. That said if it could be played in a virtual cab I'd settle for that. Anyone know if possible?

    #13 4 years ago

    My faves were the original ones, like Eldorado, Shamen, SFII, they are more like real tables, I'm not a fan of the fantasy type newer tables....

    #14 4 years ago

    Virtual pin with Zen games.... It must be awesome to play these games traditional style!

    Plants VS Zombies
    *when you disable the auto-cam

    #16 4 years ago

    I have not played them all but I would rank the same as the op. SL is really good. And I like many of the Star Wars tables. If you have not already downloaded timeshock in ios that is a must have, by far the most realistic video pinball game.

    #17 4 years ago

    The two favorite tables of mine in the game are Portal and Ant-Man. The former for its amazing integration of theme, and the second for being a game with decent rule depth and amazing flow.

    I enjoyed Venom and Han Solo for a while, but after playing them a ton, they kind of worn out on me.

    #18 4 years ago

    Sorcerer's Lair is my favorite and I own all of them. I don't care for the eternal ball times, but I think it is the best meld of layout, rules and theme. I would love to see a real table based on it.

    Any thoughts about Zen Studios "Balls of Glory"?

    Well, I can say that, after playing all 4 demos, I won't be purchasing any game.....

    Played it. It's a fun pack, once you get used to the tables. I've enjoyed Family Guy the most, very casual table, but if you're looking for a classic and complex pinball experience, American Dad and Archer are good for that. Bob's Burgers is pretty much TSPP if it didn't have as much depth

    #21 3 years ago

    Vader, Moon Knight, Infinity Gauntlet, TWD, really all the StarWars tables are great. Time for a Star Trek seriers in my opinion, might be the only way to get a dedicated Wrath of Khan pin. I love Socereres Lair and Deep Sea, Wolverine and Venom are fun.

    #23 3 years ago

    Anyone play Archer or American Dad?

    #24 3 years ago

    I bought Archer.
    Initial impressions are that it sucks.
    Need more time on it maybe.
    Or it sucks.

    #25 3 years ago

    10 dollars for the whole pack what the heck,I love what they do and am always excited to get new games,fg is my favorite of this bunch

    Oopppsss... double.

    #28 3 years ago

    Really really enjoy the new Aliens game. Very well done. Also, out of the Star Wars tables, Empire Strikes Back, Darth Vader and Masters of the Force are great.

    #29 3 years ago

    Other than Sorcerer's Lair, I like the Butters table, Family Guy, Fear Itself, SW: Rebels, and Thor.

    The new Bethesda games are incrediblel.... DOOM kicks some serious butt!!!!

    #32 2 years ago

    Pasha is a great table.

    For theme I love Tesla.

    #33 2 years ago

    I like the plants vs Zombie and Deadpool the most, A few of the starwarz tables are fun too. I prefer pinball arcade more. I think the Zen tables lack sound feedback. They really need deeper audio that includes more stingers. I hate the 'thud'thud'thud' of the ball against table parts without a stinger to suggest some activity.

    I play both and like what FX does to try things that aren't possible on an actual physical machine and enjoy the animations, but some can be distracting.

    Sorcerer's Lair and Plants Vs. Zombies are family favorites for us. Infinity War, Spider-man, Ant-man, Guardians, Skyrim, SW Starfighter, SW Episode V, Earth Defense, and Castlestorm are well liked too. I am not impressed with ET and SW The Last Jedi of the recent releases, but Jaws is sharp and Son of Zeus is enjoyable.
