Quoted from TwoHeartedMale:

This toy rocks. I cant think of a single stern toy in the last 5 years that's beats this one. Am I wrong?

The pirate ship on their Pirates of the Caribbean was pretty cool, the way it rocks and sways and eventually sinks. Having said that I like the BK toy, maybe would have been cool if the head rotated. Like if it looked at whatever outlane you drained in when it mocked you or stuff like that, but maybe there is no room for that in there along with the flail.

Quoted from TwoHeartedMale:

Good point. I said 5 years, pirates is like 13 years old. The topper will do all that on a almost life size scale. Supposedly greatest topper ever.

Ah you're right, I owned it in the past 5 years so I got confused on that one. Interesting about the topper, will have to investigate once they bringing it out.

Quoted from drfrightner:

Can even one single person on these forums actually tell me they think Black Knight, looks like they slow roasted this game? Can even one person tell me they think Stern is trying to do something original?

Here's the thing, I've played games like Pirates, Dialed In, Wizard of Oz, TNA, Oktoberfest, Alice Cooper, etc. I've played tons of games because so many are available to play on location here in Los Angeles. I'm in the process of playing a ton more at the Pinball Hall of Fame in Vegas as I'm here right now. In the end the most fun game to me personally, by far, was BK Pro hence I bought that. Your mileage may vary and that's fine, but personally I don't buy the company, I buy the game. Yeah, I'm weird like that. It's irrelevant to me if a company spends 1 billion dollars and 20 years to put out a game with 5000 toys on it and 8 stacked pinball playfields, ultimately I buy what I find fun. Hell I still play my Jr Pacman arcade machine, a very basic game but still fun from time to time. To each their own.

Having said that, Oktoberfest is pretty darned good...

Quoted from Adipocere:

For the record, I voted in favor of the toy, but I think the game is a barren landscape.

This could be different strokes for different folks of course, but because of the speed of the game I like that it's "barren" because I can see the ball almost at all times. It's like old pinball games where the ball is always visible except it plays really really fast, exactly what I was looking for. The only change I'd make personally is remove the feather from the black knight as that slightly blocks the ball in the top WAR lanes area, but I'll leave it since that's how they shipped it.

Did op create the LAMEST POLL EVER?

Clearly the only way to determine that is to calculate the BOM of the poll.
