I just compete with myself, always trying to improve on my personal bests. A little competition is fun with friends, but nothing satisfies me more than topping my best mode performance or overall score. Whatever your skill level is, just keep working to out do yourself and get better. I have hit frustrating plateus and at other times, had great leaps in skill. It's never boring, and I do not believe there is an ultimate peak to reach on the mountain that is pinball. Keep climbing and the view just gets better and better.
