As long as they don't remake Gilligan's Island, I'm good.
To be fair, the remake of The Mechanic was fairly entertaining, but just like with the rest of them, now the original never gets shown anymore. And that's what bugs me the most. If they are going to show The Longest Yard over and over again, they should fit the original in there once in a while.
That someone would pay $8000 for a copy of a 20 year old game sounds pretty crazy to me.
So the question is now, if I want a real bitchin' Camaro, should I get an early Z-28 and hope it continues to go up in value, or buy a brand new one and let the chips fall where they will when I want to trade it in in five years?
To be fair, on car forums, I heard they are considering using pinguments when discussing that subject.
Quoted from ForceFlow:
The older board systems are fairly solid and serviceable. The newer ones--they don't appear to be nearly as serviceable.
But--most older games were routed at some point. It's rare to find one in exceptional, untouched condition.
I had a chance to play an AFMrLE recently, and compared to all the routed AFM's I'm accustomed to, the brand new one was a real treat to play.
But, I'd probably never buy either one at the current market prices. Either way, prices for high end or NIB games are a little ridiculous.
I agree with everything in this post except finding the remake a treat to play. It was a spectacular thing to look at for sure. But I found the flipper action to be total weak sauce compared to a well tuned, if even high mile original. They started out fairly strong and then faded into oblivion.
Oh we got 65 here. Used to be 70 until the gas crisis. It took decades and a song by Sammy Hagar before they raised it back up from 55. Some places in Texas I think it's 80 or 90 MPH.
