    #64 1 year ago
    Quoted from The_Director:

    Just for fun, what's the longest man standing in your gamerooms and how long have you had it? For me, Bally Doctor Who. Has stood the test of time to stay planted on the gameroom floor for 8 years now. Has seen many, many other games come and go.

    Doctor Who for me too. It's seen TOM, Getaway, LAH, Taxi, WCS, and a bunch of others come and go.

    It was the very first pin I bought. I've owned several other Gorgars in that time but still kept my original game.
    But then again, half2/3rds of my collection I've had for over 15 years.
    I hate to sell.

    Black Knight was the first pin I ever bought back in the day. Not the same one, but it was the first in the basement as well. 18 years later it's still here while much else has changed.

    Quoted from Robotworkshop:

    Pinbot and Bride of Pinbot for about 20 years.

    Pinbot in ‘91 and he got married in ‘93 when I brought some floozy home from the AAA amusement auction. So I’ve owned him for 28 years and they have been happily married for 26. Almost as long as me and my wife of 30 years

    #94 1 year ago

    I have my arcade machine that started it all- an original Donkey Kong machine that I bought in 2008 after watching King of Kong- Fistful of quarters. My wife calls it the moment that changed everything. Lol.

    As far as pinball, I still have an original Ironman machine that I bought in 2011.. I bought a NIB one in 2010, sold it, and missed it immediately. Bought one a few months later and swore I'd never sell it. So many machines have come and gone since then, I don't think Ironman will ever leave though.

    #95 1 year ago

    Over half of my collection I have +15 years now..
