    I love the themes, they are as much to me as the gameplay. The artwork sets the mood of the goals, the DMD animations elevate the silver ball hitting things, to actual accomplishments that build on the adventure.

    The JP T-Rex eating the ball with the lightning and rain on the DMD takes me into a great movie with some of the best movie dinosaurs I have ever seen. Part of the reason I like that pin so much is because the movie was so cool, it is pretty far down the ratings and I couldn't care less.

    Back in college, there were two pins in the game room, MM and DW, and I loved the old TV show so much that I only played the MM a handful of times. Still to this day I wonder why that MM didn't have more of a pull for me.

    Since when were Jurassic Park and Terminator 3 bad movies? Apparently I have been watching the wrong movies.

    Looking over this post, I realized that you said you owned a Family Guy. It is a perfect example of theme vs. gameplay. If the theme had no effect on the player, Shrek would have the exact same rating as the FG. They are the same pin in every other regard.
