I'm an EM guy. I have 3. They range from 54K to 133K plays on the meter.
My question: How many is too many?
It's kind of like used car mileage. Or is it? Is there a point where you walk away from buying a game because it's got too many games on it?
All 3 of mine play great. Curious what others think.

I wouldn’t compare it to an odometer on a car. At all.
Condition, condition, condition

I'd guess the more plays the better actually EM's don't like to just sit idle

Nothing really likes to sit idle. Think about what happens to a house or a car when they’re not lived in or driven. Let a Sys11 game sit-what happens. Houses need to be lived in. Cars need to be driven. Pinballs need to be played. Hookers need to be hired. If you don’t use it, you lose it.

It’s exactly like an odometer. Ive seen perfect cars with 200k miles and POSs with 20k. It’s still about condition.
