    Quoted from MJR8peanut:

    I was thinking what games aren’t that good but everyone loves it anyway?

    I think I view the term cult classic a bit differently. I would say that term means a good playing game but for whatever reason has a small but rabid fan base. Games like Genesis, Sorcerer or Centaur would be good examples of games that are cult classic.

    Quoted from fisherdaman:

    Maybe Tron? I wouldn't say its unpopular or shitty but it has a very cult like devoted fanbase. That and non pinball people tend to dislike it.

    I don’t know...Tron is pretty popular and well regarded. The game with the inverted play field to Tron may be the better example. It’s pretty divisive among collectors for various reasons but it’s fanbase is rabid: X-Men.

    It had arguably the worst launch of any cornerstone game in Stern’s history with faulty boards that all had to be replaced and the game shipped with demonstration code that owners had to keep for nearly six months (the two main multiballs worked and that was about it). Then, shockingly, Stern actually released a code update that made the game almost unplayable. The dmd would fall 15 seconds behind the game play. It was nuts. A cursed release that scared the game’s legacy pretty horribly.
