I have limited space and need to choose between these three pins. I don't want this to turn into a pro vs prem thread but more about if you could only choose between Metallica Premium, The Walking Dead, Or Medieval Madness Remake which one it be?

All 3 are great games - It would depend on Theme and Skill.
If you really like the TWD theme and are a good/great player -> get TWD.

Otherwise: If you prefer a Rock n Roll theme vs a Medieval theme

All 3 games are so good, that there is no wrong choice - but TWD tops the list slightly for me.

Wow, tough choice. We have a MM, TWD Pro, and Met Pro... if I could only keep one for myself it'd be TWD. If I could only keep one for the family then it'd be MM.

TWD can be tough for non-pinball people. MM is so goofy that even when it's tough, people seem to like it.

Good luck on the choice!

Tough, it's like asking a parent with 3 great kids which is their favorite. Do you have experience playing any of them? If you do and you enjoyed it, I'd suggest it.

It has the best total package (shots, gameplay, art, audio, features, lighting, etc.) for me.

All 3 are fantastic. You really can't lose here. MM is the shallowest of the 3, but it's the most approachable and family/guest friendly. It's a classic. The other two are in Stern's top 5 best games ever. Really you can't lose. You'll get them all eventually anyways, so just pick one.

What's he timeframe for each before you can't buy them NIB?

I'm not sure anyone can honestly tell you a cutoff date for when you can never order them NIB, unfortunately. I do know Metallica's license was renewed at the end of last year, but no idea what that means in terms of how long they'll be available new.

I don't have any clue about the other two. I hope MMR is available NIB for another two years because that's how long I'll have to wait on that guy. Redoing the floors in my house instead of buying pins this/next year

Wow, I have MMr and Met Premium and GB Premium. Looking at TWD --probably will add. I'm pretty much new to pinball. Met is awesome for buddies coming buy and playing (the music, Sparky). MMr has the deep ruleset and when I'm alone it's my choice.

I have all three games. I would get TWD.

Really difficult decision between MET & TWD Premium. Both Borg/Lyman masterpieces, and quite frankly, the only two Sterns in production that people should be considering for purchase right now. Both with unique gameplay & deep balanced complete coding.

You can't go wrong with either. Pick the theme that suits you best. Then save money to make the other one your next purchase. I have MET & TWD is #1 on my wishlist.

Quoted from T7:

All 3 games are so good, that there is no wrong choice - but TWD tops the list slightly for me.

This pretty much sums up my thoughts as well. TWD premium may very well be the best game ever made.

TWD Prem. is still here and MET is gone (though MET is also a great game). As I tend to get my fill of MM/R rather quickly on location, I can't imagine I'd find it to have staying power close to MET or TWD at home.

Met Premium is still in my collection TWD Premium is gone... It was fun but also very frustrating. MMR just too much $ for me... those other two pushed the budget more than I liked.

#16 3 years ago

I bought Walking Dead LE before acquiring the other 2 games. Its still the game in my collection that I play the most (although GB premium is getting some honeymoon loving right now)

TWD for the full immersive experience....make sure to add the sound package.
