    I totally hate TAF And GB I know there grail pins for so many people but I don't even want to play them for free.I'd rather pay to play something else and before you flame me I totally respect both games I just don't like playing them.if you look at my rating for GB it's a high rating as it is a beautiful machine with a theme I love but with the difficulty and short ball times it just doesn't suit my tastes.what game do you hate that everyone else loves?

    #2 2 years ago

    Ooooooooo..... time to pick a fight or two.

    Metallica - yep, I said it.
    Williams IJ - clunk clunk clunk clunk
    WOZ - fun to watch but so meh to me
    GB - more stale than some breads on the shelf on WalMart right now

    #3 2 years ago

    T2 for me. I have just never liked the game.

    I'm with him on MET. Couldn't ever get into the game for some reason.

    Hate is a strong word but I thought Addams was overrated for sure.

    #8 2 years ago

    I wouldn't play TAF if it was on free play!

    #9 2 years ago

    I guess that would be Fish Tales and Roadshow. lot of people like those... i know.

    Dont like the Fish Tales ramps, and those two big heads on the playfield ... eek
    the themes dont work for me either.

    #11 2 years ago

    Hate isn't the word I'd use, but not crazy about any of these:

    Medieval Madness
    GOT
    No Fear

    Not a fan of fan layouts (no pun intended.)

    Quoted from ledge:Deleted post

    Sorry I did do a search first and nothing came up

    #13 2 years ago

    TSPP ... how many modes are running? Who knows, keep the ball alive and score all the points!?!

    #14 2 years ago
    Quoted from NPO:

    Williams IJ - clunk clunk clunk clunk

    My thoughts exactly!

    I'll add CFTBL to the list.

    #15 2 years ago

    The Addams F***ing Family....

    #16 2 years ago

    Geez where do I begin...?

    Eight Ball, Silverball Mania, Stellar Wars, Cyclone, Comet, Hurricane, Alien Poker, Hook, Diner, Capt. Fantastic, Phoenix, Gorgar, Jurrasic Park, Space Invaders, Jokerz, Congo, MM, AFM, TAF, ....all the Sterns after Elvis.

    I'll stop here, I think you get my point.

    John

    #17 2 years ago

    STTNG, Stern ST, AF, Batman and B66.

    #18 2 years ago

    I don't like wide body pins for the impossibility to nudge. And TZ especially for being over crowded. I had two of the basterds and I can only remember half of the shots "clunk"-ing for hitting a post or any other obstruction.

    #19 2 years ago

    I suppose this is a bad thread to pop in and say I never met a pinball machine I hate, LOL.

    #20 2 years ago

    geez i love taf & gb. great games....

    i cant stand TZ, dull as hell. and GoT is terrible also, just not fun at all.

    The shadow...

    #23 2 years ago

    The pinball machine I hate is the one that's in disrepair. Poorly set up , weak or broken flippers, bunch of burned out bulbs, dirty and worn out playfield , etc. . So frustrating. If I go someplace and there's only one pin but it's in good condition, then I'm happy. With that said , of all the top rated pins in good shape , I guess TZ does the least for me. For those that love it , more power to you. I wish I did.

    #24 2 years ago

    TSPP, STTNG, and MET. I just don't get what people see in the first two and MET has nice art and good music to play to but I just cant get into the gameplay.

    I do get your point. You hate pinball.

    For me, it's TZ. TAF is just okay, but is redeemed by one of the greatest multiball opening sequences ever.

    #26 2 years ago

    + 1 for me with TAF and TZ << both overrated to all hell and back and also T2, loved the film, pin is bleeeahh

    #27 2 years ago

    Cirqus Voltaire, I just can't get into that game.

    #28 2 years ago

    Fathom

    #29 2 years ago

    Addams Family. I don't get the appeal at all.

    #30 2 years ago

    AFM
    Family Guy (Owned it, probably the worst game I have owned)

    #31 2 years ago

    TZ.....I just could never get into it...

    #32 2 years ago

    Monster Bash. Audio makes it worse. "Oh no not the moon!" Ugh.

    #33 2 years ago
    Quoted from Edenecho:

    The Addams F***ing Family....

    What?! You never told me that you hate that game?!

    #34 2 years ago

    I used to dislike adams family. But I love it. Now.

    I think the theme and the fact it was everywhere turned me off to playing it.

    But now I love it. It is a solid game.

    #35 2 years ago

    Clearly TZ and TAF are inferior games that are just overhyped. Now, who wants to discount theirs accordingly and sell to me?

    #36 2 years ago

    TZ and AFM. Owned both, never learned to love either.

    #37 2 years ago

    Hate is a strong word, I wouldn't use it to describe a game. Lets just say there are games I like better than others. I like what I like and I understand whats works for me doesn't work for others.

    Hobbit and Mustang come to mind. I really like both, but sold Mustang added Aerosmith.

    #38 2 years ago

    Game of Thrones

    Everytime we play this in our leage I get destroyed. ...maybe if I learned the rules? Naaaa - still don't like it.

    #39 2 years ago

    I wouldn't say hate is the right word. But I think these are not all that fun to play.

    TAF
    TZ
    CV
    STTNG
    GB
    TSPP
    TH

    #40 2 years ago

    Monster Bash.
    Aside from not really being into the monster side of things, the audio and music to me just sucks. Sorry.

    #41 2 years ago

    Funhouse, can't stand to play that or Star trek next generation.

    #42 2 years ago

    Ghostbusters is the worst game ever made in the history of all games in the known universe.

    CFTBL sucks, too.

    And WPT

    I can find redeeming values in pretty much all other games.

    Quoted from Spitfiren8:

    TSPP ... how many modes are running? Who knows, keep the ball alive and score all the points!?!

    Look at the mode board. All the slow blinking ones are active. Look at the orange arrow inserts. Those are mode shots. Very simple.

    #43 2 years ago

    WoZ. Just never got into that one at all.

    I agree with these.

    #45 2 years ago

    The Walking Dead. I don't see what the fuss is about.
    Also, Game of Thrones. Not fun to look at and boring, repetitive gameplay.

    Ghostbusters is similar but is saved by the impressive art, sound and display presentation. I've slowly come to appreciate Metallica a bit more (but usually won't go to it first if it's in an arcade lineup).

    Correct!

    F you.

    #47 2 years ago

    Ha. Boob gettin' sassy already! For me it's TZ and The Shadow.

    #48 2 years ago

    I dont hate any pin as they all offer a different fun experience. I don't get the hype and crazy prices people pay for acdc and tron as i just dont care for the gameplay that much. Thats what is great about this hobby.... buy what u like and dont worry about what others have /think.

    #49 2 years ago

    Anything made before mid 80s or so, more so EMs though. I wouldnt say i hate them I just cant get into them at all. Few bumpers and targets with bells and chime sounds with nice art work are not to fun to me. I do play all them when im out at arcades but after a few plays its back to the modern pins for me.

    #50 2 years ago

    Haunted House, slow, to spread out, and just boring.
    What a tank.
