MM is the better game overall. AFM is much simpler, but MM has better humor, deeper ruleset and better humor/call-outs. If i had to part, AFM would be the one to go. (Good thing I don't and both can stay!)
Both are excellent games though. I don't think you can go wrong having either one in a collection.
I've had MMr for about 1.5 years and AFMr since November. I won't get rid of MMr it's the better game long-term, more to do and better shots/humor. I could part with AFMr if i had to. I'm limited to 4 machines by the wife, so likely that AFMr will move out at some point as 2 slots are more or less permanent. MMr and Sinbad.
Quoted from Damien:
Played both games tonight back-to-back, and once again, I'm debating with myself about what game is better.
I have said many times that MM is superior with it's theme, rules, sound, but occasionally you have a really great game on AFM and realize that the gameplay is the real toss up between these games.
THAT is the key, only that good game is when it's arguably close to MM, but play 20 on each, you will more likely have more entertaining/fun games on MM than AFM. Which for me is why it's the better game, even crappy ones are still fun.
