    I'm sure there'll be those who disagree but I think the money pins command is the biggest reason for many people not gravitating to pinball. Look at the popularity of Arcade1ups, it's just not nostalgia that is driving sales, it's the price point and when it's a large amount people wonder why we pay so much for one and attribute it to weirdness.

    Quoted from ectobar:

    Don't you dare talk trash about my Competition Seahorse Go Kart racing league!

    Nothing like breeding thoroughbred Seahorses.

    I think people who like pinball enough to actively look for places to play or in our case purchase simply have not lost that sense of awe and wonder for the world around them. Sorta like when a kid see's a Bumble Bee, or Humming bird hover for the first time, they don't have to say anything it's apparent in their eyes.
