Quoted from drsfmd:
I don't want to pick particular titles... I'd rather group them by years of what I prefer playing...
late 50s- 1963-ish - Gottlieb
1963- early 1970s - Bally
1972-ish to end of EM era - Williams
Totally agree with this idea...grouping all EMs together is the problem with trying to make A lists or whatever. Just looking at responses here will show you that people are generally gravitating towards an era or category when listing titles. And it reflects the current trend in collecting, like Tom says - Buckaroo was once considered the cat's ass, and multi players were generally shunned. Nowadays it's alot different....and years from now it'll probably be different yet.
I also feel, and o-din touched on this, that I haven't played enough games on many titles to form an opinion. Until I get a game in my house, shopped out correctly for my tastes, and many games logged, can I get a solid opinion of that particular game.
