    Quoted from renvhoek:

    As a new user and relatively new pinballer, I find the top 100 critical to me to let me know where to start. There are > 1000 pinballs (I think). The list gives me a starting place. I do find the comments invaluable, of course.
    So I'll pick a pinball in the top 100 that I like the theme on, start reading all the comments. From those, people might mention another game, I then follow that comment to another pinball and read those comments. The "brought home" thread is wonderful for research as well. I see what people have bought, they often say why. Then I go read comments on those games. learned about stuff not in the top 100 that way.
    I flew out to the pinball hall of fame in vegas a couple of months ago. There are 100s of pinballs in there. I had 2 1/2 hours. I think I managed to play 25 pinballs in that time. The top 100 was a good guide for me to know which ones to try.

    I could not agree more about the Top 100. I am a newbie, too. The rankings add personality to games that I have had minimal exposure to. IMO, people value different aspects of a pinball game, for some it's the challenge, for some the artwork, or music/soundtrack, the theme or the code (I am still trying to figure out what "code" really means, would that be "rules?"). For me, the most important thing is how much fun I have playing a game. TAF and AFM are on top of my personal list. Those are funny, whimsical games (BTW, any chance there will ever be a TAF remake?).

    I am hoping to go to the Vegas pinball Hall of Fame in a couple of months. All of the arcades in Washington are closed for now.
