Quoted from JJHLH:

Would it be crazy to have a 3-game collection of MMr, AFMr, and MBr? I'm seriously considering doing this. Or maybe CCr instead of MMr to add variety. They are making another run of MMr in February prior to the reveal of remake #3 at TPF in March.

Yeah it would be crazy............crazy fun that is lol.

Quoted from Djshakes:

I never understood why people get concerned about holding onto a game for years. I cycle through them like underwear and I have a five game collection.
I played afm on location and wasn't impressed. May need to give it more time. I borrowed a buddies mmr for about a month. Fun game and reminds me of mb because you have to complete things in order to increase jackpots. I bought a mb about two weeks ago and love it. Yeah, not the hardest game but I only beat it once. It is a perfect balance of fun, difficulty, theme. I think mm is slightly harder as I never got to the end. The issues with mm is the scoring is a bit unbalanced and shooting the castle is easy. There aren't easy shots like that in mb other than Frankenstein and you don't want to hit him until you complete everything else. So the challenge is not hitting him.
Plan on getting them all and cycle through them. Buy them right and you won't lose money. Never understood why people get married to titles unless they really love the game. If not, move it along.

I buy games with the intention of keeping them forever. That obviously may not happen once I reach my limit if a dream theme were to come along though. I then at that point would have to make a choice to let one of my games go or live without the new game that I really want. I’m not a fan of moving games in and out of the basement all the time, too much trouble since I don’t have a walk out basement.

So do we. We buy them with the intention of keeping them forever. We only sell them when we are sure that we have finished with them and have stopped playing them. Our collection can vary in size from 4 to 12 machines at any one time.

I own both MMr and AFMr. I've had MMr for a year now, AFMr just showed up at Thanksgiving. Both are good games, but for me MMr is the better game. Better humor and callouts and bit more to do. AFMr is simpler, but definitely different enough. They are NOT that similar, the ramp shots aren't the same by a long shot. I will say that CGC knocked it out of the park with AFMr, i have LE and that topper is crazy awesome and the big screen, OMG. I will instantly purchase the screen upgrade for MMr as soon as CGC releases it.

I have played MB a fair amount but haven't owned it, I don't think it's good at all, not impressed with it enough to go buy one. MMr as soon as you play it, it's like ok this is fun as hell. Whether you have a crap game or a great one it's just a blast to play, that's what makes it a good game, it has a TON of replay-ability (is that word?).

There is a reason that both are in the top 5, you really can't go wrong. I think most people will agree MMr is the better game, but you'll have a few that prefer AFMr, which is totally fine.

I am also considering this as well. I have afm se and a mm se. thinking of adding one more.
Thinking I may like MM more than their next pin they remake.
