    What pins are you ashamed to admit you really enjoy playing?

    I fixed a Shaq Attaq recently and have been enjoying it more than I would care to admit. I also enjoyed the daylights out of Freddy at the Ohio show, though I'm pretty sure it's regarded as a rubbish game. (Not trying to crap on Premier/Gobblieb, but some of their later games weren't brilliant.)

    I Genuinely enjoy and dig FREDDY, that's why I own it!

    I'd say FREDDY and Gladiators are my biggest guilty pleasures.

    Junk Yard....not a lot of love for this game....but I love to play it

    It's a shame that anyone would be ashamed to enjoy any pinball machine Who cares what others think.

    I like Shaq Attaq too FWIW. And Big Hurt. Must be those "air ball" shots as I also like NGG, NBAFB, etc.

    Not ashamed but I own and enjoy IJ4.

    I have owned a ton of system 3s as they truly are my guilty pleasure games. They get a bad rap, but they have unique layouts and rock solid mechanics/electrical. If they spent any money on software and artwork, they would desired a bit more than they are. If I could have my pick of a collection of System 11's and Gottlieb System 3s, I would pick Gottlieb System 3s everytime....

    I think the Rolling Stones is a lot of fun. I wish they had a better song selection for the game.

    Collin...your bad cats is my guilty pleasure game

    Gottlieb Deadly Weapon. Part of their failed "Street Level" series (low cost!!, high earnings!!). System 3 architecture, and no pesky ramps or toys to break - just shots, shots, and more shots. The whole game is essentially stringed hurry ups and skill shots, but man, it is a blast. John Trudeau can work some magic on a budget. Shame about the art being utter shite.

    I always liked playing Street Fighter II. I think it was a System 3 game too. Rock solid as far as electronics when I had mine. And it's a cheap, cheap dmd game. Sold mine about a year ago for $700 I think.

    It's a linear game, but it still was a guilty pleasure for me, and it rarely gets any love from collectors.

    I got a Shaq months ago. I only got it because it was on the SUPER cheap and hell.......its a pin, right? Well, some time later, it is actually a fun game sans the soundtrack !! With the vari target, drops, ramp, moving basket, 4 flippers, it would be touted as a pretty damn robust game nowadays with all these features.

    Baywatch!

    Crappy theme, fantastic game. Love the triple skill shot and the multitude of ramps and habitrails....

    I don't care for it as a pinball machine theme but Stern Playboy has actually got very good shots and flow.

    #20 7 years ago

    Roller Games.

    This sounds suspiciously like "I only buy it for the articles."

    #22 7 years ago

    I love my Bally Star Trek!!!

    #23 7 years ago

    nothing wrong with SST. That's one of the best games out there. Blows away 87% of the " A " list games.

    I'll second Gladiators. That game is stupid fun. Arena I enjoy as well

    #24 7 years ago

    Heavy Metal Meltdown. I turn it up to eleven.

    #25 7 years ago

    No such thing as guilty pleasure pinball..

    #26 7 years ago

    The Pinball Arcade on gaming consoles. But...but the physics!

    #27 7 years ago

    You asked for it so here it is...."Champagne!?" "Wooooooooooo" *female giggle*

    I like a lot of games others feel are not good enough. Hurricane, Stern Rolling Stones come to mind.
