Quoted from Rarehero:
Those games you listed aren't that shitty, really....if you just look at them from a design perspective. They're all totally unique playfield designs, shoot well, and he found creative ways to use the license. Art, code, budget constraints - all Stern-isms.
Agree. I love the layout on NASCAR. Best positioned and most satisfying drops on any Stern I've played. The rest of the package just doesn't live up to the design potential.
Would love to see NASCAR rethemed as some kind of quantum theory game. The race track would make a great particle accelerator!
Expecting some magic from Pat this next game!
