Cue Ball Wizard has been here since 2008. It was my first game and my wife bought it for me. #not-for-sale... if you want it you'll probably have to come when my son hosts an estate sale!

For me Medieval Madness - brought home 5/04 from Union Music , Harper Woods Mi. with 9,577 plays . Was $4,876. w/tax . They couldn't figure out why I would pay more for a used game then they paid new ? They all looked at me like I was from a different planet when I layed a towel on the glass and lowered the head down on it - Shrunk wrapped it - and took the legs off . Soon after MM's were going for $7,000 - $8,000. Then a year after that they were selling for $16,000. or more . Great game and thank full to buy in at the right time .
Lethal Weapon 3. My first pin, picked it up for cheap in 2009 and fixed it up. Just can't get rid of it. I know its by no means a top rated game but it keeps me coming back for more. Difficulty is medium, and for some reason a good game can be hugely satisfying. That, plus the movies were great, coupled with the Three Stooges reference and ZZ Top music, I'll probably never sell it.
No fear.....when I look at it I says...hell no I ain't letting it go for that kinda money. Nothing in that price range better imho.
Judge dredd.....been my 8yr old daughters favorite since tftc left 4yrs ago. Not gonna make that mistake again. She loves super game and the dredd character.
Argosy, 17 years and counting, also my first buy.
It's easy to be sentimental and hold on to a game I spent $300 on. With most people spending around $8k on their first game purchase these days I can see why people can't afford to be sentimental.
Quoted from CrazyLevi:
people can't afford to be sentimental.
No you can not when you have spent less than $8k on machines #1 to #4 in your collection (combined) but $8.3k plus alone on game #5. I am so glad I got into this when I did back in 1991. At least my first 3 machines were “affordable” and my 4th was just playing catchup on a title we have wanted for 20 years. Now that the holy grail of MB is actually joining the ranks this week, I only have what 40?, maybe 50 machines left that I need to buy?
1978 bally Playboy.
Bought it routed in 1985.
Have 2 of them now, getting ready to restore it.
