Quoted from Sixmillion:
Hi Dave, you mentioned that Ironman is oh so fun, would you say you have more “fun” playing it than Metallica? I have fun playing Metallica, but would I have more fun playing Ironman I don’t know.
I only have just the 1 machine so nothing to compare it to. I bought my Metallica new in box 2 years ago, but perhaps no matter which game you have in a 1 machine collection the “freshness wears off “
I know for art, hands down Metallica. As for the stock lighting and sounds, which is better?
I think Dave's description was spot on. I didn't like Iron Man when I first played it when it came out. It was too simple, didn't draw me in at all. The game gained popularity so I had to give it a fair chance. Playing it at home and learning the rules gave me a new respect for the game. It is fast and exciting. My particular game with some powder coating was gorgeous. I think I liked looking at it more than playing it. It got old fast for me and nobody else in the house liked it at all. It didn't last long, Metallica is still here. That being said, Metallica might be the next game to go.
Neither game is rare or hard to find in great shape. If you decide Iron Man isn't for you after 6 months, sell it. Even if you lose a couple hundred bucks, I think you break even renting a game for awhile. There are too many games for any one to be a "keeper". If I had room and money for 30 games there would be some keepers, but at around 10 games, everything has a lifespan.
