    1.Most Over Rated Pinball.
    TOM or TOTAN, beautiful with terrible rulesets
    2. Most Under Rated Pinball
    Mystery Castle in terms of top 100
    3. Most Over Priced Pinball
    BBB because PM is the better game and rarity is the only thing that makes BBB worth the money. If a few hundred more were made it would sell for Airborne money.
    4. Best Value
    Breakshot

    I can agree with the first three. Substitute WPT for best value.

    Played about 20 rounds through an Adams family at a local bar. Sadly I have to agree I think its over rated.

    Pinside thinks someone needs to learn to spell.

    Medieval Madness is most overrated

    Mustang is most underrated

    BM66 SLE is most overpriced

    A pre-owned WPT (or any WPT for that matter) is a best value

    #6 5 months ago

    I think over rated and over priced go hand in hand as well as under rated and best value. Some that come to mind for over rated/priced are Adams, Monster Bash, CV, Dialed In, JJP POTC, Hobbit, AC/DC LE, TOM, Scared Stiff, TNA, Funhouse, Fathom-(I cant 'Fathom' what these are selling for nowadays), Tx-Sector, Guns and Roses, BTTF, Jetsons, Magic Girl, Data East Star Wars, Black Spiderman, Batman 66 SLE, Supreme and Congo is now on the edge of value v.s. cost, it has been trending upwards quickly.

    Games that come to mind for being under rated or best value are T3, Star Wars Premium/LE, Ghostbusters Premium/LE, Barb Wire, Black Rose, Wh20(under valued imo), X-Men Magneto, Transformers LE, TFTC, JP, STTNG, WOF, I500(Super Fun/under rated), Earthshaker, Whirlwind, WPT, Shadow, NGG and CP & BSD & FT are now on the edge of value v.s. cost, all trending upwards quickly.

    I feel that every pinball machine ever made is both overrated and yet underrated, while a good value but at the same time a ripoff.

    Also I’d like to point out that saying a game like Addams Family or MM is overrated is like saying the Beatles or U2 are overrated: at some point something is just so popular your “hot take” opinion just doesn’t fucking matter.

    Underrated - Mystery Castle (seconded)

    Overpriced - BM66SLE

    Best Value - X Files (I've found it twice for under $2000 in the last couple years, but it might be going up lately)

    Quoted from CrazyLevi:

    your “hot take” opinion

    Heh, out of all the posts, only one stands out with this attitude. It's just lists from pinheads wanting to shoot-the-pinball-shit. Why so ornery? Someone step on your toe with their selections? Go ahead, post yours, you'll feel better!

    Underrated: Mustang Pro
    Value: Mustang Pro

    WTF. It’s the only game I’m playing right now. Granted, I’ve only had it a little more than a week, but I’m really enjoying it. I understand why it has a bad rap, but in my collection, it fits like a glove. Normally the honeymoon lasts about 2 days in my house, but this one is different. I never would have thought this game is this fun.

    #20 5 months ago

    The Mustang at Flipout this year at the very least had the "Kickstart my Heart" song pasted into the gearshift multiball. That was good cheesy fun. It may have had the "full works" done as per this thread:

    Cool to hear another pinhead has discovered the joys of Mustang's gameplay! Try playing a Premium/LE if you ever get a chance - it's even more fun (and consequently even more underrated).

    Most Overrated: The Simpsons Pinball Party
    Most Underrated: Gottlieb's Circus--for all the love given to Genie, the layout is similar yet it seems like it's not as common to find. I enjoy the game.

    Best Value: Early solid state games that the kiddos don't pay attention to since they're down in the 200's in Pinside's ratings list or lacking enough votes to be ranked.
