    As long as they don't remake Gilligan's Island, I'm good.

    #8 1 year ago
    Quoted from oldskool1969:

    One of my favourite shows and the pinball machine I will be buried in!

    Here on Gilligan's Isle!

    #39 1 year ago
    Quoted from merccat:

    As long as they don’t start remaking people I’m good.

    Quoted from CactusJack:

    The world needs more Williams parts games.

    My garage doesn't.

    And where's that video of the dude with the long hair and missing teeth ranting about these remakes?

    #52 1 year ago
    Quoted from Buzz:

    thin skinned members.

    22n2de (resized).jpg

    #54 1 year ago

    Is this a thin skinned member?

    #56 1 year ago
    Quoted from OLDPINGUY:

    Doctors Prescription..... Drink, Play Pinball, Enjoy Music and Friends, Have Sex.

    That Dr's a thin skinned member. He left out a very important prescription.

    Quoted from ASOA:

    Not all remakes are created equal.
    There is only 1 Willy Wonka.
    What the hell is a Johnny Depp?

    Can you do the same special effects with Barnabas Collins?

    #69 1 year ago

    I will say Depp did do an inspiring Tonto though.

    #76 1 year ago

    I was talking about the TV show. lol.

    #78 1 year ago

    If they try to remake that show, we'll go blow up Hollywood, how's that!

    #79 1 year ago

    And some other things they should just leave be.

    Quoted from Buzz:

    Nothing is original anymore. Just a regurgitation of everything.

    And what really sucks is all the originals get buried buy all this remake crap.

    #83 1 year ago

    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.

    #85 1 year ago

    " Hey look, The Longest Yard is coming on! Oh no, not Adam Sandler again."

    #90 1 year ago
    Quoted from Azmodeus:

    I would like to see an updated cannonball run.

    That was already an updated Gumball Rally.

    Will these remakes ever stop!

    #100 1 year ago

    That someone would pay $8000 for a copy of a 20 year old game sounds pretty crazy to me.

    #102 1 year ago
    Quoted from Astropin:

    Not when the original is going for 12k.

    Haven't seen much of that lately.

    #104 1 year ago

    So that pretty much nullifies your last statement then doesn't it.

    #106 1 year ago

    The part about $12000 originals is what I meant. lol.

    #109 1 year ago

    "Is that a real poncho, or is that a Sears poncho?"

    #112 1 year ago

    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?

    #116 1 year ago
    Quoted from Astropin:

    Please...one more cargument...I know you can do it.

    New Challenger vs. 1970 R/T ?

    #121 1 year ago

    To be fair, on car forums, I heard they are considering using pinguments when discussing that subject.

    #126 1 year ago
    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.

    #131 1 year ago
    Quoted from Astropin:

    25mpg on the highway is ridiculous considering the 500hp.

    Not to mention the 65 MPH speed limit, of course.

    #133 1 year ago

    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.

    #140 1 year ago
    Quoted from Buzz:

    Get a bitchin Camaro and run over your neighbors.

    I've got a "bitchin camaro!"

    #142 1 year ago
    Quoted from leonml:

    Yes we all cling to our childhood music as the best.

    I've got a Bitchin' Camaro!!!!

    Quoted from merccat:

    Is it just me or did people loose sight of the original thread and that this is a parody thread?

    The original thread got locked before it's time, so this one is a free for all!

    #172 1 year ago

    I heard fire came from rubbing two sticks together.

    #174 1 year ago

    And I'm supposed to be a god of fire. lol.

    #176 1 year ago
    Quoted from Goronic:

    Let's leave religion out of this, ok?

    Is mythology OK?

    #180 1 year ago
    Quoted from guyincognito:

    I thought you were the god of Thunder.
    And fertility.

    Yeah, but after a while you get a little burned out on that.

    #183 1 year ago

    Yes Ted, this is pinside, where everybody gets a trophy.

    #186 1 year ago

    Are you guys comparing originals to remakes again?
