Quoted from frenchmarky:
I've only glanced at the top 100 a couple of times. Today I looked at the top EM 100 for the first time since you mentioned it, didn't even know it existed. My god that list is even more useless than the other one. Williams Lady Luck 4-player is number 1? You could pull a game out of a hat with your eyes closed and come up with better. Quick Draw is 68 and Fast Draw is 230 and they're the exact same game but 2 player vs. 4? Not one of the genius Gottlieb 50's single-players in there? The list should come with a laugh track.
The problem with the EM top 100 is that hardly anybody rates them.
There is not a single EM pin in the entire system where the rating goes into the triple digits (100 or more ratings).
For that matter there’s a ton of them with single digit ratings (9 or fewer) and countless others that are not even listed because they have no ratings.
The entire list of top 100 EMs could be manipulated and changed if a few people went on there and rated a bunch of machines.
I suppose on a long enough timeline it would balance itself out (maybe).
