How about those "dummy" reels in EMs for the 1s digit that look like a reel but is just a 0. Those are lame. I like in an old EM (Skill Pool comes to mind) when you have a really crappy ball and you get 9 points. That feels a little lame, but you know you deserve it. Comet had the first million point shot!
I think that the inflation of scores is almost comical, but it doesn't bother me. They are just numbers. There is no need for a score to go the billions, especially if you are ignoring the numbers 1-10 or more though.
