    Seriously though, what was IHOP thinking?

    #2 2 years ago

    I'd say mission accomplished as a publicity stunt. There is a post in a pinball forum about it, and that is the sort of thing that is priceless.

    I still don't want their food.

    Those burgers look tasty. And the same thing was probably thought when Nintendo went from making playing cards to arcade video games. Can you imagine how that conversation went? Seriously, wtf?

    It’s just temporary. And it’s good marketing.

    I have only eaten there once. 5 years ago after the Chicaogaland Show

    It's a nice stunt from the crew at Droga5, but my question is why push to enter such a crowded market now? 10 years ago you had far fewer players in most areas. Now there's the BK/McD/Wendys contingent, Sonic, Five Guys, Smashburger, In & Out, etc....odd decision to enter such a crowded field.

    I'd much rather go eat at my local diner than some cookie cutter chain.

    Basically, McD wants to serve breakfast all day - 24/7 Breakfast places are now going to sell burgers all day. Circle of life my friends. For every action there is a reaction.

    IHOB - Crazy but has people talking. Mission accomplished.

    What does jjp have to do with IHOP or IHOB?

    Seriously, I always pictured him as more of a Waffle House kind of guy.

    O-D I thought you died! Glad you're back man, it's never the same around here without you.

    #14 2 years ago

    I drove by an IHOP over the weekend, and I actually noticed it. So their ad campaign was effective. However, not effective enough to make me walk in the door and eat crappy food. So there ya go.

    Nintendo made a lot of things inbetween Hanafuda cards and the NES.

    You can put lipstick on a pig, but it’s still a pig.

    I was referring to Donkey Kong arcade game 1981 not the NES. Was there any electronic games made before Nintendo went into the arcade market?

    Nintendo made a few arcade games which used 16mm film. Wild Gunmen, Sky Hawk, and Shooting Trainer. Long before there were "video games".
