    Pinball is back big time! And arcade games are coming back also. Anyone else wish Pinside would start another top 100 with comments for arcade machines?

    This is PINside

    Nope there’s enough non-pinball related crap already on Pinside to filter out. For the record I also have arcade games.

    Why?

    If we are begging for features I would vote a solid state only bang for your buck list. The current bang for your buck list is all EMs. Yes, I've seen threads on this but the best machine for x amount comes up often.

    Certainly not arcade machines. I've often wondered why not include virtual-pin manufactures like PinballUSA and VPCabs.

    Virtual pins are silly, they're basically video games. You can simulate pins all day long.
    Pinball is about going analog! Virtual pins are like the baby steps. They’re also helpful for decision making on your next purchase, but virtual pinball will NEVER compare to old-school, physical pinball

    I would like pinside to have a collection space for arcades. It would be nice to be able to keep track

    I have seen that before. I just wish Pinside would do it because I like their way of doing the top 100 better.

    Pinball is real, video games are virtual. That’s the reason I prefer pinball!

    Arcade games aren't even being made anymore and even the "classics" are so lame 30+ years later.

    10-4.

    Huh? Lots of new arcades. Many amazing ones also.

    When you click on Top 100, it already has several sub categories you can click on. That is all I was trying to get going, another Top 100 sub category for arcade games that could be rated and comments and details left for.

    I 100% agree that pinball machines are the ultimate fun, but for some variety it is nice to play Centipede, Pole Position, or a round of Golden Tee also.

    Other sites do have arcade stuff, I just like the Pinside way, with the ratings and comments and other entertaining info.

    You just need to join KLOV.

    I am in, good idea.
    Most of us have a few vids or gameroom toys anyway.

    I have looked at that site. Their top 100 confuses me. It is done by year and abc order from what I have seen.

    I like the way Pinside does member ratings, with the comments and all that.

    Am I missing something, is KLOV also doing a top 100 with member ratings and comments also?

    I am not even trying to change anything at all about Pinside, Pinside is perfect. I was just trying to get some support for maybe them to add a Arcade sub category in the Top 100 sub categories.

    Meh, all redemption and driving and shooting games. Those aren’t getting ranked anywhere in any top 100 of arcade games. Gonna be all the typical Centipede and Asteroids crap.
