We always hear about everyone top 5 or 10 most loved or wanted games. Lets hear about your top 5 most hated. Everyone has a bottom of the barrel list and i'm sure it's different for nearly everyone. If you want to include brackets why behind each one, that would be good too. Some things I hate about a game, arn't really about the game overall. No vague answers like >......All EM's or crap like that. Specific titles only please. Number 1. Top most hated to 5th most hated.

I'll go first I guess. I have my top 2 already, but I had to think about top 5.

1. Street Fighter 2 (love the arcade, but holy crap I could not stand this game)
2. X- files (only time i've ever wanted to stop playing a game after ball 2)
3. AFM (i think it's the cheapest looking B/W game ever made. Empty playfield had me pass by it numerous times back in arcade times. Looked empty and boring and still does. )( also the apeshit love for this game, makes me dislike it even more) Econoline of the B/W DMD era.
4. EP1 (mostly because it's episode 1, so the subject matter is terrible to start, but it's so repetitive as well. I love p2k but I so wish this was some other game and done differently)
5. Black Knight.... Worst sounds i've ever heard in a game. most annoying. Gives me an eye twitch.

#10 4 years ago

Bride of Pinbot, owned it for 6 months and couldn't get into it.
AC/DC Pro, way to fast of a game for an amateur
Fish tales, find it quite boring.
World Cup Soccer, yuk
Super Mario, omg......

1) Metallica- Don't care how good the gameplay is, it's just not worth having to listen to their music.
2) AC/DC- As above.
3) South Park- Boring layout, boring objectives, awful artwork and a playfield that looks like it was built in someone's garage. All this from a theme that could have been the basis for an excellent game.
4) Haunted House- Great concept and the artwork, shame about the gameplay.
5) Black Hole- Quite possibly the stupidest ruleset ever conceived. Work towards getting the ball to the lower playfield. If you manage to do that, you'll probably be rewarded by having your ball dumped into the outlane.

#14 4 years ago

I am unable to find 5 pins I truly hate. Even checking my ratings, I could only came up with 3 titles:

- Super Mario Bros. Can't stand the theme, callouts, layout. I know it's unfair and subjective because I have to admit the game is not that bad...

- Pink Panther.

- Olympic games. You probably never encountered that French "gem". Good for you! This game borrowed some ideas from Centaur. With such good genes, you can't go wrong, right? Wrong...

#15 4 years ago

POTC
POTO
CV
Rescue 911
-Can't think of a 5th right now

#16 4 years ago

Potc to me is a yawn fest very boring and just not fun

#17 4 years ago

Shaq Attack. Shoot the basket.
LOTR. Theme makes my skin crawl. Probably a fine game.
Most 80's era SS machines. Can't get into them.
Harley Davidson. I'm a SEGA fan, but do not like this game.
Big Guns. Dear lord, it's bad.

#18 4 years ago

Baywatch theme
Lethal weapon theme
Paragon game play
Afm over rated
Avengers it's just crap nothing going on

Only two I can think of out of the 114 or so I have owned over the years are Big Guns and El Dorado City Of Gold if I had the room and the $$ I would still have all the others!

Avatar. The only one that I actually found that I hate.

Hercules has got to be at the top of my list: slow boring gameplay and takes the space of 4 games.

Yeah, sure it is.

Quoted from oldskool1969:

You're a lot better player than me for sure. I've owned mine for almost 4 years and have probably got LITZ (maybe)four times the past year. Its a big deal when I get there, with a three ball game.

#28 4 years ago

There is only one machine I refuse to play - Dolly Parton.

It's kind of like donuts. Some donuts are better than others but at the end of the day they're all still donuts. You know?

#31 4 years ago

Family Guy (theme is good, gameplay is boring)
X-Files
Rolling Stones
Popeye
Monopoly

Now I have a taste for donuts. Note to self = eat breakfast before coming on pinside.

#33 4 years ago

Wow I'm surprised with the AFM "Hate" posts. I'm OK with the game, but don't love it either.

Rick, you reading this thread? (AFMr).

#34 4 years ago

Can't stand Rudy and STTNG. Don't want to see or hear either. I refuse to play at any cost.

#35 4 years ago

NASCAR - will the ball ever drain?
Latest Rolling Stones, except for the bash Mick thing
WPT - never understood it
Roller Coaster Tycoon -shut up...just....shut up
Mustang - drove one for years, but the just doesnt do anything for me

oh my god so many wrong opinions.

Spoken correctly--
Incorrect opinions here and there, but opinions are everyone's right.

WPT is outstanding, and my favorite Stern. Learn it, and you may love it.
All shots are a Gamble, like the theme, as you must hit them at the right time, and it has endless shot options, over 100 different mystery awards, and some terrific mini modes. The 3 second triple score shot on the ball return lanes is a game-maker for me. My one Stern keeper.

My five "I despise" games.
Gottlieb: Solar Ride.
Gottlieb: Dragon
Williams: Millionaire.
Stern: TSPP ( I know I am in the minority here, so no need to point it out).
Stern: IndyJ 4. Just plain bad.

5. 8 ball deluxe (because i've fixed so many of them i can't stand to even look at them anymore)

now that funny I like 8 ball deluxe but that's just funny!

#40 4 years ago

I really think a lot of hate comes from not knowing how to play the game and just bashing the ball around for a few games and making an opinion based on theme and the way you feel about the shots. I surely have not liked many games until I learned what to do then most of them got better. WPT is a prime example of a game I hated but there are several people that love it so I must be missing something. Also anyone that hates AFM must not like the price because the theme , call-outs and shots are top notch. It is not rated #3 because it sucks . There is plenty to do and the flow is second to none. I have a lot of parties and pin players and novices always play it non-stop.
Several that have been already mentioned I think are weak are Monopoly, RCT, SX, SG and, Rolling Stones. Pins I also do not care for are TF, X-MEN, and Family Guy.

#41 4 years ago

I don't hate pinball machines, but some that I don't care to play when I see them are

Demolition Man - I just find it boring
Twilight Zone - Too cluttered for my taste.
Creature - Don't like the movie theater theme or shots.
Family Guy - different layout that doesn't work imo
Roller Coaster Tycoon - as someone else stated, just shut the hell up!

#42 4 years ago

* Any machine with a dead or broken flipper.
* Any machine with a broken ball launch / shooter
* Any machine with non working pop bumpers

* Darling & Jubilee ('73 Williams) I'll let you figure it out.
* Skylab ('74 Williams) Another non-winner, even though space themes are ok with me in general.
* Magnotron / Duotron (played it as a teenager and still don't like it to this day)
* Disco Fever ('78 Williams, with banana flippers, horrible theme, & ugly artwork)
* Eight Ball Champ (voice call-outs & early electronic sounds on this one = horrible)
* Jokerz! ('88 Wiliams) Definitely not a desert island pinball machine to have to live with.)
* Monopoly (rotating mini flipper = annoying)

My apologies for going past 5.

Simpsons Pinball Party , Fucking boring , did almost everything this game has to offer and it was a motherfucking snooze fest , Fucking 45 minutes of nothing . Fuck this game . Boring .
Twilight Zone , Boring , stop and go , most over rated game ever . Like the Tv show but this game fucking sucks a donkey's dick .

5. Bally Circus (EM) Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

So you get flack in two treads for wanting to shit on the x-files, one in a thread for a fan thread, and the other with someone new that just got their second game, so you make this thread so you can bitch about it legit....

Don't you have $100k in machines to try to sucker someone with that can occupy your time better with?

#47 4 years ago

That's only 3 Trilogy. Go ahead and get it all out of your system.
Tell us a 4th & 5th that frickin suck iyho.
