They're are some machines I am not interested in because of theme or art. No clowns, no sports, no cars, no poker, no pool (is that a sport?) and no Gorgar. I may be doing myself a diservice but some of these machines I don't want in my house because they're creepy or lame. I had a hurricane for a short period and I could feel it staring at me. Everytime I see a Shaq for sale I check the pictures out because it cracks me up. Poker themes dont interest me unless it was a Jackbot. Same with pool or maybe its just Eightball Deluxe. I feel like if I brought a Gorgar into my house it would burst into flames.

Does anyone else stay away from certain machines for no apparent reason? Let us compile a comprehensive list of machines that irk us.

Genesis terrifies me.

World Cup Soccer

#1 It's soccer
#2 It's too F'n teal
#3 I hate the dog

bay watch. its a real fun game. its just that I cant stand david hasslehoff. he is a major butthead.
and pam Anderson, she is a bunny hugging skank. honestly, she has smoked more meat than hickory farms.

#5 4 years ago

Funhouse isn't allowed in my home (unless my girlfriend moves out.) Too damn creepy for her. Ironically, RoadShow is allowed.

Okay, so it is soccer... it's got that going against it...

BUT IT'S SO GLORIOUSLY TEAL! Plus, the dog's better than the Striker Xtreme backglass.

I'd buy anything if the price was good enough. So many good games have bad themes or music, I don't want to let that stop me. That said, I'm cheap, so I can safely say, I will never buy a new in pinball machine.

Baywatch. Its a real fun game, it's just that I can't stand David Hasslehoff.

Just buy one of the alternate Baywatch translights (with hot girl lifeguards on it) and lose the Hoff.

Stern!

#14 4 years ago

I thought Star Trek. Then I played one......

#15 4 years ago

... game that "just needs a fuse".

#16 4 years ago

I am sure FH and CV are great games and I am missing out but way to creepy. I even missed out on a really good priced FH because I knew I would just be buying to flip.

#17 4 years ago

Class of 1812 and ripplys believe it or not , those two are just to creepy ........ohh and gameplay are horrible.

Anything made by JJP nib, have no issue with their machines, but if the owner is a total tool sorry not giving you one penny. Worst experience so far in pinball dealing with Jack. Shame because LTG is fantastic and the Hobbit interests me. It's ok I don't like playing games with a flashlight to see the ball anyways.

To me, Genesis has earned cult-classic status.

The backglass cracks me up, eventhough it is rather dismal from an artistic point of view.
I've played Genesis, and like it enough to add to the collection if I came upon a great deal on one.

To me, the worst part of Genesis is the awful purple ramps.
Seems like clear replacement ramps would be well received and sell well.

#20 4 years ago

Guns and Roses as I hate everything about the band.

#21 4 years ago

Wheel of Fortune. Looks like pretty fun game, but the art is possibly the worst ever in my book.

Of course, for the right price I would pick up almost any pin. With one exception, see below WOF;

Dolly_Parton_pinball.jpg

Dolly Parton... never, no matter the price (rethemed, yes)

#22 4 years ago

I used to say sttng for the theme, but mainly the translate. Thank you repro, and now I own.

BK for me - I've never got the appeal of that machine, and has nothing to do with the age, love my firepower.

#23 4 years ago

Genesis is a great game.

#24 4 years ago

I will never buy a pin that cost more than $6000. That's the only thing banned in my collection.

#26 4 years ago

nything from Sears again, the appliances are junk and so is the service.

hah, it's like that saying I would never join a club that would have me for a member eh Neo?

#28 4 years ago

raven, ugly ass pin!

#29 4 years ago

EM pin. I'm just not a fan..

#32 4 years ago

I don't like translites with photography...I prefer artwork of some kind...I do have a Jurassic Park which is sort of a hybrid...

#33 4 years ago

...NFL pinball machine by Stern 2001 with any of the following teams on the backglass:
Cowboys, Eagles, Falcons, Jets

For a great deal this pin would be ok with any of the other teams on the backglass.

#34 4 years ago

WAY too many to name.

But way up on the top 100 list?

I'm not a big fan of TZ or TSPP, or SS.

#35 4 years ago

...any of the following:

Sea Hunt by ALI - 1972
Pirate Gold by CCM - 1969
Orbitor 1 by Stern - 1982
Shrek & FGY by Stern - 2008 (game play is ok, but theme & call-outs not for me)
The Rolling Stones by Stern - 2011 (I'll play it on location for a few games, but that's about it).

...any of these by Bally:
68 Rock Makers
75 Wizard (Sorry, just don't care for it)
78 Dolly Parton (would be ok to have concerning gameplay if it was rethemed)
79 Rolling Stones (ditto retheme)
81 Medusa
85 Eight Ball Champ
87 D & D and Hardbody (outlane design and Magic/Flex Save doesn't interest me).

...any of these by Williams:
68 Student Prince, 73 Darling/Jubilee, 74 Skylab, 75 Big Ben, 79 Gorgar, 90 Funhouse, and
94 R & T's Road Show

82 Rocky, 94 Freddy: ANOES

No such thing as "never", at the right price I'll buy anything. I will never seek or pay market price for any "Pro", "home" or "the pin" cheapo model though.

#38 4 years ago

Any pins with banana flippers.

#39 4 years ago

I'd never buy any of the music-themed pins. All the ones released to date are bands for which I have no interest or actively dislike.

#40 4 years ago

nonworking EMs

#41 4 years ago

...a lockdown bar from centerflank.
I've heard too many rumors

#42 4 years ago

Send them my way!!

#43 4 years ago

RBION - just plain creepy
AC/DC pro - The face on the playfield is awful. Yep, it stopped me from buying one.

#44 4 years ago

ss Gottlieb?

I don't think it's the same , because I have the option to join the overpriced club. I just choose to get more for my money and don't piss it away so easily.

#46 4 years ago

Found myself focusing only on the thumbs to decide which posts to read.

There's nothing to be ashamed about. If I could afford the big dollar pins I would get them.

Something to ride home with in Singapore without first checking under the hood (if you know what I mean <cough, cough> and yes that's another hint).

I have never even seen this T.V show but that back glass has evil powers I had a nightmare about it last night.
