    Quoted from PtownPin:

    Its an incredible game....u should play one sometime....does it deserve to be number 1....ahh probably not, but who the hell knows....

    I came across it once. Didnt get a chance to play it. I voted for it because TFTC dosen't belong in the second round.

    #52 54 days ago

    Final 4! You heard it here first. Metallica, medieval madness, Jurassic park, Adams family. Medieval takes it home.

    I love that predictions are now coming out on the Final Four.

    I'm predicting Jurassic Park, Attack From Mars, Medieval Madness, and because they had a favorable draw being the overall #1 ranking, Pirates (JJP).

    However, I could see some spite votes against Pirates. Attack from Mars has a tough, second round draw against White Water. We'll see how the voting shakes out this week.

    #54 54 days ago

    MET, JP, TZ, and AFM my final 4 predictions. Winner - JP.

    AFM has by far the toughest bracket to get through. I agree w a previous post that the top 100 rankings will be given massive grief for providing some games get a cakewalk to a point, while other, better games get slayed in the process.

    This will get interesting - "fanboy vs. spite vs. reality" at it's best......entertaining thread!!!!

    #55 54 days ago

    30 votes for Alien...this is also the numbers of the owners! Great game

    Everyone has their own reality

    My Final 4 would be:

    IJ, MM, POTC, AFM with POTC and MM in the championship round and the winner is......POTC although could easily see the other 3 winning

    tales from the crypt is a top 64 game huh.

    Helps if you have this update.

    #59 54 days ago

    Sadly, 2 of the 4 current top vote-getters will have to face each other before the final 4 - MM and TAF. Tragedy, I say!!!!

    Fish Tales over EHOH?
    That’s pure madness right there.

    CV currently beating IM....is this a joke?

    #66 54 days ago
    Quoted from Astropin:

    CV currently beating IM....is this a joke?

    Well it is the higher seed and all.

    #67 54 days ago

    BM66 over BSD?

    #68 54 days ago
    Quoted from TheLaw:

    Well it is the higher seed and all.

    I still (and always have) thought that not enough people have put enough time in on IM. It's the greatest 1 ball game of all time and one of the best games ever overall. Its outlasted 20 other pins in my house. Now the new JP just might be even better, but I'm still in the honeymoon phase on that game.

    I've played a ton of CV over the years and it's a solid game...personally wouldn't buy one though.

    #69 54 days ago

    Now that I see the way y'all think about games, I agree the PS100 is worthless.

    #70 54 days ago

    So still suspense for
    Elvira (stern) vs Fish tales
    B66 vs BSD
    TBL vs BKSR

    The last one is surprising but fair fight as I don’t think many people have played them. However I would have thought TBL would win quite easily or BKSR is a good game (I don’t have played both)

    IM finally gained a slight advantage. +100 to your post!!!

    I'm still amazed that Indianapolis 500 got 29 votes

    #73 53 days ago

    A friendly reminder that voting ends 10pm EST/7pm PST tonight.

    Voting for Round 2 will start tomorrow and run through Wednesday night, ending at 10pm EST/7pm PST.

    Updated brackets, matchups, and statistics will be added to this thread, as well as the Round 2 thread tomorrow.

    Thank you to everyone who has participated.

    Thank you for doing this!!! Takes my mind off the world for awhile.....

    (although an unmentioned game literally having a walk in the park until the elite 8 genuinely pisses me off, lol)

    #76 53 days ago
    Quoted from dc2010:

    I can't believe the big Lebowski is ahead, how many are voting for it because it's rare?

    The shots are all fun, the design and features work, The movie clips and screen size work perfect, yes the code is not done enough to continue the fun but when complete will be a huge hit, and I am not even a big fan of the movie at all, it just feels and look right of a 90’s era game or maybe a Bally’s feel.

    I wouldn't want to own either

    I think Ghostbusters would have lost to almost any game in round 1 besides Alice Cooper lol. lucky draw

    #79 53 days ago

    MET vs TWD in the second round

    It could have been the final of the table or even the tournament.

    #80 53 days ago
    Quoted from colonel_caverne:

    MET vs TWD in the second round
    It could have been the final of the table or even the tournament.

    That's the beauty of this tournament - unpredictable. Tough matchups early and cake walks to the next round create uncertainty for strong, but not elite pins.

    #81 53 days ago

    Votes are still coming in. Four hours until voting closes.

    #82 53 days ago
    Quoted from guitarded:

    FT is way more fun than EHOH.

    I’ve owned FT three times.
    Each time it’s the same: love it day one, ready to move it by day two.
    Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, and it’s all good, but there’s just no way FT can compete with a new, modern Stern.

    #83 53 days ago
    Quoted from CyberNinja24:

    ... but there’s just no way FT can compete with a new, modern Stern.

    How aboot The Walking Dead or GB?

    Quoted from CyberNinja24:

    No. It's too much fun to compete with the average modern machine.

    I don't get the appeal of 3/4 of the new Sterns, myself.

    To each his own.

    To me, a Fish Tales.

    #85 53 days ago

    Last reminder - one hour to go until voting closes.

    #86 53 days ago

    Voting has closed.

    Give me a little time to updated brackets, matchups, and statistics. I will post the results of round one in this thread, as well as round two's new thread.

    Voting for round two will start tomorrow morning at the latest, and will end Wednesday, 10pm EST/7pm PST.

    Thanks for your patience.

    #87 53 days ago

    FT should waltz into the Sweet 16.

    Then Fish Tales received 100% of the votes right?

    Looks like no upsets in round one. Maybe Ironman.

    FT undeservedly topped EHoH.
    We suspect hanging chads on votes from Florida caused EHoH to be undercounted.
