I think MM is best, then AFM, then MB. As many said, MB I think looks the best of the three but is WAY too easy. This is why I never bought one even back when they were $2500.....guess I should have so I could've kept it and sold it now for $12K! AFM is second because although it is a better game than MB, I still think it is a little too easy. I got to the end of AFM a lot and not so much with MM. Again, this is why I never bought an AFM when they were in the $2K range.....now I never will due to price and since I already have a MM. Yes, the way to win in a tournament is to bash the castle, but how often do you play in tournaments where you just need to get the most points? When I don't play MM for a while and then I play it, I walk away saying, "man, that is a good pin!" I'm really glad they remade it so all the people that couldn't afford one could finally get one. I would have bought the remake had I not already had one! It's a keeper...if it wasn't, I would've sold it a few years ago when I could've gotten $15K for a non restored one. NOT GOING ANYWHERE!
