I want to like Houdini but the shots are just too tight and way too many brick shots that make it not enjoyable to play.
Lots of people wanting the perfect family game. I have found that it is very difficult to try and make everyone happy and often times the amount of plays other family members play compared to you is 1/10 plays. Whoever the main pinball player in the house is should determine what game to buy next. I have seen lots of people buy a game for the wife or kids just to have them not play it when it arrives(this has happened to me). I now buy games I want and they may or may not play them.
Out of the games on your radar I would say Star Wars Premium/LE or a Oktoberfest (But would recommend playing first). Star Wars is a difficult, fast flowing game that keeps you on your toes. The orchestrated music is fabulous and helps re-kindle those Star Wars memories from your youth-the theme goes a long way. Oktoberfest looks like a really fun game, but I want to play it at least a dozen times before I can have an opinion on it.
Dialed IN is a great flowing table with a fantastic layout, I just can't seem to get into it-due to theme.
WOZ is a journey game and if you are a novice player you will never progress enough to make it enjoyable-imo
MBR is a classic game that has a basic rule set and great layout, and at the price of a standard is a great bang for your buck.
IMDN is a great playing game but again theme and horrid music kill it for me.
Everyone has different taste, play games on location and decide what one you want to keep pushing the start button on-that is your next machine.
