    I don't think I've seen this topic yet - what game(s) do you love that the pin public generally doesn't care about? I have a long-standing irrational love of Grand Lizard. Also dismayed a friend and RBION owner by telling him I thought Roller Coaster Tycoon is a better game than Ripley's. How 'bout the rest of y'all?

    Not everyone "hates" Demolition Man, but I can't get enough. I'm on my 4th machine, and I just keep coming back! It probably gets the least amount of play among my friends, but the flow of that game has kept me hooked since day 1.

    Yeah, I played this game for the first time yesterday at the Pinball Cafe in Toronto (great rotating lineup by the way) and it was pretty good. I could see it getting tired after a while though.

    Also got to play my first Party Zone too! That was pretty cool.

    Bad Cats, Grand Lizard, and Jungle Lord. I have a blast with all three.

    #12 7 years ago

    The majority hates Grand Lizard? It seems really popular around here. I have always thought World Poker Tour was much better than the public opinion of it. Super Orbit is also really fun and is regarded as one of the worst Gottlieb's.

    lw3.the only game i have sold that i miss. i just like playing it.

    #14 7 years ago

    Hurricane I guess, if enough people really "hate" that one.

    #17 7 years ago

    NBA fastbreak. I don't like the NBA either

    #18 7 years ago

    There are people who hate Bad Cats?
    Well then I vote Bad Cats I guess.

    #19 7 years ago

    MSF as well. Sold it, regret it.

    #20 7 years ago

    It gets really repetitive. Like many games in that era, a few software tweaks could really change the game.

    I don't hate many games, I just dislike them enough where I won't invest in owning one, but heck, I'll play anything if it's available.

    But if I had to choose one, it would be William's World Cup (not WCS!). Just so bad.

    #21 7 years ago

    Many come to mind, but if I had to choose one, I'd say Pistol Poker.

    #22 7 years ago

    XM ... really like it, seems to get a lot of hate.

    Also, Shrek. Almost everything I hear on this one is negative, but I really enjoyed it when I had it (used it in a trade for a MB).

    #24 7 years ago

    NBA Fastbreak, Black Pyramid

    Games I hate that everyone else hates: Rolling Stones (Mick on a Stick version)

    #25 7 years ago

    Williams Jubilee.

    It really is a great multi player player game.

    #26 7 years ago

    Bbh hmm bc jokerz!

    #27 7 years ago

    BBH

    Although, I see that several other posters have already listed it in this thread, so maybe not "everyone" hates it after all!

    Boom! You took all my answers!

    I will also answer the opposite question, the game I hate everyone else loves..... WH2O

    Though I have been considering it again, thinking I didnt give it a fair shake. Guessing most haven't given the above games a fair shake either

    #29 7 years ago

    Bone busters, hurricane

    For me DE Hook. Its a MUCH better game then people give it credit for! I regret selling mine , but it was to somebody that I might have a chance to play it every now and then with and it was part of my Twilight Zone purchase which I had to have.

    #31 7 years ago

    Nascar.

    With YOU on this one, my friend. I liked the game play but the sound made my eyes cross.

    Williams Jubilee.
    It really is a great multi player player game.

    Dude! That was my first pin! Rated like crap, but that pin is responsible for my addiction. We all liked it (friends and family) It's funny, the two player version Darling rates higher than the four player Jubilee.....how???? Same game!

    #33 7 years ago

    The game I like that gets no respect is Star Wars Episode one . I also agree with ovfdfireman on Whitewater ,I really don't like that game .

    #36 7 years ago

    I really like Jokerz(love the double your score option). A friend of mine has one and I will play that any day over his mint pins,TZ or CFTBL.

    TF LE

    #40 7 years ago

    I enjoy playing Rolling Stones. I dominate at that game actually. It's set up in tournament mode where I've played it.

    I like Waterworld too, and Transformers!

    #41 7 years ago

    Junkyard for sure and I also liked High Roller Casino when I played it.

    #42 7 years ago

    Gottliebs, generally.

    Also opinions change over time, Sopranos was called Suckpranos pretty early on by several people (in fact you can even Google it for 3 pages of results), but I loved that right from playing one of the promo machines at an Earls Court coin-op expo.

    +1, Hook. My first pin, from a million moons ago.

    Creature is the closest I have to a game a lot of people really dislike (as far I as know).
