what its your Pick and why?
Very, very different games and this is a chocolate vs. vanilla debate. I own BoP and it will never leave. Why? It was the game that got me into pinball as a kid. The stock rules are very shallow with a major exploit for players (shoot left ramp), but it has a great and well integrated theme. FT is a players game. Fun, hard, and punishing. I think the theme is very well done, but it is no contest for me to choose between fishing with old white guys or building a futuristic robot woman. Add BoP 2.0 into the mix, and BoP blows FT out of the water (pun intended) by a very large margin. Of course, I hope to get a FT into my collection at some point, but I don't think it would ever be a keeper.
FT has a few different ways to play, as it keeps track of how many fish you caught/how many tales you told. Not an easy thing to do either, catching fish. The Super Jackpot is one of the most satisfying in pinball imho, and when you get the game whipping around, it's brutally quick. Lots of risk vs reward shots in FT, and the potential to ''string'' everything together for an epic game is what keeps you pushing start over and over again.
