    I voted for the Edison invention personally. But then I am naturally averse to having seizures for some strange reason...

    Quoted from Honch:

    I think that particular gripe about LEDS is overdone. I've never really noticed any distracting flicker during game play on my pins.

    I must be old fashioned in the fact that I am actually looking at the pinball(s) while I'm playing a game, and not necessarily just staring at the lights and inserts. In most of the "overdone" LEDed games I have played there is a noticable strobing effect on the ball itself which is distracting to the actual gameplay. I will readily admit, when not being played the hyper-bright GI and inserts that have been LEDed are certainly brighter and more eye catching but to me you are overemphasizing those when they were never intended to be ripping into people's retinas. Again, IMHO.

    I can't say there is 100% agreement on this topic, but from my unscientific sampling most serious players prefer non-LEDed games. If you are putting them in because you are trying to save electricity or burnt connectors or because you think they look better that is cool, but I disagree that it makes the game more fun to play.

    Quoted from Honch:

    I'm not sure anybody is claiming it makes a game more fun.

    So why would somebody mod an amusement device in a way that makes it less fun to play?
