It seems good condition versions of classics (whitewater, getaway) are edging close to the price of modern sterns NIB. I want to buy my first pin, and am trying to figure out which route to go. I expect it will be my only pin for at least a year, so I do want to make sure it's something I can play for a while. Are newer generally always better in terms of depth and home use? Are the older classics just fundamentally good games that have staying power on their own? In particular, I'm deciding between something like whitewater or getaway on one hand, or deadpool or ghostbusters on the other (since I need to sell the wife, theme is a factor and iron maiden is out).
I know a lot of people say get a cheaper older DMD game to start, but the good ones are edging into modern pricing. So any thoughts on which route to go, if pricing is essentially the same?
