    Quoted from pipes:

    Thunderbirds is by far the most loaded game on the list if we count misery and frustration.

    OH MAN. I am almost starting to feel sorry for HomePin. Almost.

    Quoted from Davi:

    Judge Dredd.
    4 flippers, 5 plastic ramps, multi level wireform ramps, 5 bank drop target, 2 auto plunger, magnetic crane, rotating planet and ring, 6 ball multiball, 3 captive balls.

    You make a strong case!

    #53 3 months ago
    Quoted from HighVoltage:

    You make a strong case!

    Well, based on facts and numbers, JD or STTNG is more loaded than TZ (if we are talking about '90s pins). Somehow TZ is the first cliche answer.

    #54 3 months ago

    There are a couple joke options on there. Lol at stranger things pro.

    There is only a handful of options that make any sense. Twilight zone, indiana jones, wizard of oz, dialed in, and pirates. That's pretty much it. Tons of William's era games had lots of stuff, but not to the degree that these do.

    If you look at games like judge dredd, or tspp, stern would charge 10k for those now.

    I vote woz. Two upper playfields, two different physical ball locks, 5 flippers, two different ways to save your ball, 4 differently molded pop bumpers, and toys up the ass. That thing is more packed than any machine ever will be again. Tz is a marvel as well, but woz just has more everything.

    Quoted from TheLaw:

    I'd say WOZ, proving more shit piled in a game does not make it better.

    Man, you spelled judge dredd wrong. Woz is awesome.

    Bally "Vector" isn't listed so I'll not be be able to participate in your paltry little poll. I now consider this matter closed.

    If by loaded you mean cluttered, then TZ is a winner!

    #61 89 days ago

    Real question is which pin is most loaded and fun to play. Some too slow and boring.

    #62 89 days ago

    No JPOP Love?
    Arabian Nights, Cirqus Voltaire, Theatre of Magic or World Cup Soccer. These would be some of the Best 2 flipper games.

    I'll go with Totan.

    Loaded and still fast? Dialed In. I personally love a loaded and slower game. Lawlor style stop and go. So slower doesn't mean worse to me.

    #64 89 days ago

    Ghostbusters Premium/LE didn't make this list? Thats whack

    #65 89 days ago

    Oktoberfest is very loaded

    #66 89 days ago
    Quoted from amkoepfer:

    Oktoberfest is very loaded

    The pin or the people that go there?

    #67 89 days ago
    Quoted from Saddath:

    Both!

    #68 89 days ago

    Twilight Zone for sure.

    #69 89 days ago

    Now can we do a "least loaded" machine ever poll? We can rant and rave how fast they are to play.

    How far back can we go? Bagatelle ?

    How is champion pub not on the list, but last action hero is?

    #72 89 days ago
    Quoted from Stuieb84:

    How is champion pub not on the list, but last action hero is?

    I've had both (briefly). LAH is LOADED on paper. 3 Magnets Addams family style, moving crane and physical lock, multiple captive balls, 6 ball multiball, Smart missile, and the best artwork of Arnie anywere! I just wish it had more Arnie on the translite!

    Champion Pub is not. It does have 2 small gimick mini playfields without flippers and a moving boxer, but that's about it.

    #73 89 days ago
    Quoted from Stuieb84:

    Did you not see stranger things on the list?

    unsure how Baywatch missed this poll?!?!?!

    What do you mean by it’s “loaded on paper” ? Did they remove stuff from the final production game ?

    #77 89 days ago

    TZ is my favorite to line up, and play "Stall Ball" with some friends.

    Valid stall shots that come to mind:
    4 scoop shots (piano, slot machine, camera, dead end)
    3 lock shots (gumball, robot, diverter to auto plunge lane)
    2 orbit magnets
    1 rocket kicker

    If you had said "moving mechs" or "mechanical gimmicks, " I would have to agree with you...but there are many more that are "loaded." We may be discussing semantics at this point, I suppose.

    On the other hand, it would have been better represented on the poll than Thunderbirds! Lol!

    Quoted from jorant:

    Example, I don’t think TZ is slow and a it’s fun pin to me on list as packed game. WOZ is more packed than TZ but slow.

    #80 88 days ago

    I think Shadow is a packed games and fast with flow might need to be on the list.

    #81 88 days ago

    Fun poll; but not defining different categories of "loaded" (e.g. loaded with code, mechs, everything? misery?) and making it "of all time but also for the era" makes it a challenge too.

    #82 88 days ago

    Depends what loaded means? I mean tz is loaded with mechs and toys but jjp pins like dile and potcle are also loaded with tons of mechs/toys but also have all rgb lights, shaker, more code/rules, better/more speakers, 2-3 lcd monitors with some interactive, camera and so much more. So imo while I love tz and older 90s b/w pins jjp pins are my favorite especially for home use bc they have it all and plenty to keep you busy for a long time.

    Quoted from Jackontherocks:

    I agree. Most loaded does not mean most fun to play. Some of the least loaded are the best games of all time for me. AFM is a great example.

    #84 87 days ago

    Least loaded from the Bally SS era machines is definitely Strikes and Spares. But people still love it in a tournament.

    100% agree ...The WOZ machines are going to be worth big $$ in years to come .There will not be a game that packed again try to find a RR under 9k .That pin is a blast to play and what a light show!!

    Love the shots in AFM. Wish they would bring back some of these shots in new Stern pins From the AFM pin.

    JP-pro. three pop-bumpers and air.
    So, there you go, thread not needed.

    Do you mean like Stranger Things?

    I want to bump this b/c after JJPs release of GnR, it’s clear they’re not going to load these games up like before (which is fine - rather have them in business than not). That being said - who takes it? I would have thought POTC or even WOZ is the runaway but TZ is owning it!
