    Pinballs are mostly made for the middle-aged and older people (mostly men) with disposable incomes. This us why we keep seeing "older" themes like munsters, willy wonka, Elvira, black knight etc coming out.

    First rule of sales is to go where the money is.

    Quoted from pinupgirl1975:

    @daditude You are so right ... and these types of games definitely appeal to me... because I am in my 40s. Brings me back to my childhood. Willy Wonka and ET were my absolute obsessions!
    But, I have seen a lot of talk around here about it not appealing to certain demographics and maybe a change in some modern type games can help? Who knows as I said I could be completely naive in thinking that way!!

    I definitely don't think you are naive. I agree that they should try to appeal to younger audiences...and in some ways they have...especially with mass appeal games like gotg and deadpool.

    These manufacturers are all about the almighty dollar, however, not to longevity of the hobby.
