Pinball Arcade UNDERGROUND
This is not the standard Pinball Arcade package where you pay for tables or seasons.
It is legally free, no hassle, non-ads, contains 22 classic arcade real machines, and is downloadable for Android or tablets.
People do not need to pay $5-9k for NIB pinball machines. Even HER (or referred to as HEP by some collectors) games have little meaning, unless a personal grail title. Many cases you can still get very good games for under $1k, although new owners don't like or want to believe old collectors, if a person is willing to do some work in tracking down what you want. Games don't come to you, you go to the games. It is incredibly monetarily wasteful to buy many new games in a short time without full personal upfront review, especially when a person is dumping titles in a short turnaround time. However, holding onto games does not result in huge losses, if maintenance is correctly performed routinely. Some games I have owned for nearly 30 years, others are simply 40-50 years old and have long past "bottomed out" on the market stage years ago, and regained significant value due to scarcity and quality of their condition. I have never been party for profit on these machines anyway when I do sell games, periodically.
If a person has a tendency to get bored quickly, discover other aspects of pinball such as restoration, construction, design, development, technical training, art, or history. These areas all cost significantly less than a brand new game (or directly "free" except in personal time) and allow a person to still be involved in the hobby.
If a person does not find their true calling in this hobby within 5-10 years, an individual will simply burn out like a shooting star and move on, if not sooner.
"Owning to play games" is not the solution, never has been.
Don't let it happen.
