For people who play their pins, a higher high-score always motivates another play on any game that is reasonably difficult. Of course you get pinned out when you spend nearly $10k on another pretty box of lights that sits next to your other dozen $6k+ boxes of blinking lights you've bought in the last 4 years. Some guys are more about the acquisition. Others are more about the brag. Still others are more about competing with internet 'peers'.
To be honest with y'all, it's this kind of distasteful, boorish behavior that really spoils this board for people like me. It's really not that impressive to fill out an internet form and spend two hours setting up a new machine for a hundred plays. Of course this is followed by the mandatory photo posts and complaints of space limitations replete with images of McClaren's and mansions. It's cool that you can buy what you want, but ownership does not demonstrate mastery. You never see these guys buying games other than new or near new from other collectors because that's mostly what they are good at.
If you are pinned out, I'd ask when the last time you set a high score was. Chances are it's on a game you've played less than 100 times.
