Quoted from jackd104:

A theory: of the multitude of pins released in the golden age of pinball, only a handful of the very greats stand out in the imagination today, and those had amazing sound a music along with all other aspects of their design. Today, one tends to compare every new game to those few greats. Consider that back then a lot of stinkers were also made that had bad sound and music.

This is so true of music in general as well. We remember the classics of previous decades and compare them to all the music of today. I vaguely remember listening to plenty of crap on the radio in the 80’s waiting for the good stuff to come on. Crap music from back in the day that you will never hear on the radio ever again.

I think Thiel has done great work on modern games. But I love the sounds of my Sorcerer. The sounds of those old Williams pins/arcade games were special.
