Guess what. I just voted Jurassic Park before I even saw your comment. Ha-ha! I've enjoyed my time on JP, it's a reasonbly priced entry-level DMD pin, and if the layout wasn't so similar to Whirlwind, I probably would have gone after it by now. I can definitely get behind a vote for the Getaway, and to many-a-podcasters chagrin, Fish Tales. Both very fun with some inventive toys. Between your two choices it might come down to whether you'd prefer an adversarial pin (HS2, natch) or that classic Williams campy humor (FT). I know BSD is a popular one these days, and while Myst Multiball is just about the coolest multiball start in all of pinball, it aways felt a little light on shots to me.
Anyhow, I don't think you're gonna go wrong with any of these, Mercury. Good luck with the purchase!

Oh there are some good games on that list. I even own a couple of them currently (Getaway and BSD). And I think they are both wonderful for their own reasons. Getaway is just a fun romp around. Redline mania and super jackpots. Just a straightforward and fun game with easy to explain rules.
BSD is special to me. I love the game, and even when I don't play it for a while, I always have fun when I do. I keep mine setup tough, so getting the 30 million scores is difficult, but so rewarding when you do.
I'd put JP at the bottom just because I have never liked the feel of that game. It doesn't satisfy me enough to own.
Apollo 13 I know the least. I've only played it once, so my opinion really doesn't count for it.
So to me I need to suggest Getaway or BSD because I love them both enough to keep them. And overall I'm going with Getaway. It appeals to so many different people. When people come over they tend to gravitate to it, and explaining light the lights and run the stop light here is just easy to understand.
