I think if I could only have 1 EM (my desert island pin) I would have to go with Williams 4 Roses.

Why, pray... you may ask??

You know, typically... on any title, I feel after I play the game for awhile, get a feel for the game, I can become better and better as I play it more. But 4 Roses is a game that just seems to defy this, no matter 'how' much I play it. I mean, sure... I have gotten better at it but not as good as I feel I 'should' be, after playing as many games as I have done. And I can win games on specials and points here and there but it's very, very hard to have a 'breakout game'. That is, a game where you can really rack up the replays on any single 5 ball game. But 'because' it is so hard to do this, I find myself playing it all the time, trying to do this very thing.

Quoted from Vic_Camp:

Gottlieb Central is another game it takes forever to have a breakout game.

I hear ya, Vic!

Central Park is a game that I have 'never' had a breakout game. In fact, BREAKOUT GAME?? I'm lucky if I can win 'any' games on this particular title. All that machine ever does, is kick my ass on a regular basis. But I am going to remedy that, when it goes up again in rotation... I 'will' become a better Central Park player, I don't care 'how' long it takes!! At least with 4 Roses... I 'have' had a breakout game, just not very many... hate to say it.

Quoted from NicoVolta:

4 Roses... tough ol' girl. Promises you the moon, gives you the drain. But you'll be back again before long.
Best score I've managed is around 1350. Ever rolled it? *gasp*

I have not.

Got ridiculously close one time, so close I remember thinking... REALLY??

Like nineteen hundred and eighty some points.

Got in that ball park 'one' other time... but not quite as close.

I need to get a chalkboard to record high scores and high number of specials collected.
