In terms of value for the dollar, Road Show is way underappreciated.

#152 53 days ago
Quoted from Yelobird:

For as much as I have lost playing Dolly I could own 3. It’s a love/hate relationship. Would have to include Dr Who and Ripleys to the list as a great value for a always fun shooting game with an understandable rule set.

I forgot about Doctor Who!
5 star super underrated!!!

#153 53 days ago

So far the standouts seem to be:

1. Baywatch
2. Hardbody
3. Black Knight Sword of Rage

#154 53 days ago
Quoted from Azmodeus:

Shadow is my vastly underrated suggestion.
Outstanding game example, but very polarizing to players. I am in the camp that loves it.
No pop bumpers. The most amazing ball lock. Variable back glass options.
[quoted image]

Genuine question…. Does anyone not like The Shadow’s gameplay? I always thought the ranking was lowered due to the art … mainly because of the translite.

Shadow is a great game, but the sound package and switching ramps get old. I had one for a year and loved it, but I have never missed it once it left.

#156 53 days ago
Quoted from BeachPickle:

Dolly makes for the best dollar games. The rule set is so stupidly simple, but is incredibly hard to execute consistently. She can be so sweet to you sometimes, and then absolutely evil. I also put a powerball in mine, which makes things even more fun.
Next time I’m working on it I’m going to change the settings so that the drops don’t collect “Parton” letters, to incentivize you shooting the spinner to get up to the scoop. [quoted image]

great game but the cat mod is pretty good too

Definitely makes the game more challenging.

Quoted from NC_Pin:

It is ranked lower because it is

A) a "B" movie theme

and

B) people don't like the Alec Baldwin translite (which most people change out, btw)

If not for those 2 things, I feel it would be in the 8k+ range.

P.S. I have had many opportunities to replace it with games that cost twice as much, but when it comes down to it...TS is better and has more longevity in a home collection than almost all of those.

Hardbody is great. The game is fun to play and the art is so bad that it's good. So cheesy it gets a pass. It's very similar to Bally BMX.

Quoted from John_I:

Disagree. Shadow is in my top five and never gets old. Steal of a buy, although it has gone up in value.

Post passes don't work on mine, so I use ramps to pass. The ramp diverters can be used to help short shots make it up the ramps. The mini pf is genius, especially mixed with multiballs. Best Video mode in all of pinball, the only one I look forward to playing. Unique integration of gun into gameplay. Super funny Easter egg mode that I always go for. Sooooo much repeatable fun.

Good point, especially if you have the soren code so modes are more random and therefore more fun!

I don't know if I'll ever sell mine. Probably someday but man, this update does so much that no game is ever the same.

In terms of gameplay I don’t think the Beatles gets enough credit for how fast and fun it is. I can also explain the whole game to someone in 30 seconds which adds to it being my favorite modern game for multiplayer games. The repeatable looping orbit shot and spinners are pure sex.

Ya know, BMX is severely underrated as well. Good point.
The problem with BMX is that there aren’t many of them around.
Very Collectable. A lot of fun.

Great pick Chisox. Ya know I was kind of upset when Stern was going to reskin Seawitch but Stern did an amazing job with the Beatles. It’s just a blast to play.
It’s one of the reasons I went forward with the Haggis Fathom purchase.

Yet oddly you Have one of the nicest Fathom's known to man in your collection..... lol I had three JJP POTC's at one time so I understand the obsession.

High Roller Casino…way too far down the list. If you’re not a gambler, it might be hard to understand why you’re winning or losing…that I can understand, but if you do understand the games, it’s such a blast! The sights and sounds are fantastic! Hilarious comments during the gameplay!

Shout out to Gold Wings.

I'd also vouch for Baywatch, Dolly is way more fun than you'd think it should be from the target placement and limited playfield, GoT deserves a mention, but my #1 pick is still World Poker Tour.

Got to play BKSoR the other day. Didn't like it. By Steve Ritchie standards it's a poor shooter, and it takes way more effort to get to the upper level than it should when half your shots there are arbitrarily blocked or bricked. It basically came across like a worse Game Of Thrones.

#171 52 days ago

Gold Wings is on my wanted radar

Robowar & Robocop play them if you can

Sometimes I love playing Shadow, other times it feels cluttered and the ramp diverts just annoy me

Robocop never gets old, simple but it tickles all the nostalgia buttons.

Your coming with me creep!

If you run into one, try giving the pro version a try. It plays much different without the upper playfield.

Quoted from gdonovan:

Indeed! It's so satisfying getting the ball to successfully jump over the gap on the ramp.

Coming in hot with the hottest take:

ROCKY AND BULLWINKLE.

That game is much better with the sound off

Doesn’t exist anymore because of the prices games are going for now.

I was about to say Dolly! I’d probably play it before most any other game that comes to mind! So simple, yet so addictive and as mentioned, at times oh so brutal!

I like it but also find it gets old fast... owned it more than once.

Its a game I will play every time I see one but own?? nah.

Hate the mini playfield also.

Xmen all day - what a fantastic game! Admittedly you do have to mod it to get the best out of it. It's waaaaay better with the custom audio package and the newton ball mod.

The rules are so good, the hero modes are great,
the battles with the villains are really well done and the magnets complement the theme perfectly. It's really not a bad shooter either - love all the combo callouts on it!

Quoted from Pinrookie:

NBAFB is so underrated.

It's an ok game but everyone buying it with the intention to convert it into a MM

Bally Special Force. Load bombs on helicopter and drop on village. So wrong. Game is fun and no one knows about it. The bumper caps look like little huts. Hard times for the industry when it was built. Some of the wood on the one I had was from a cut up arcade game.

Good call ! I had one for a while and really enjoyed it. Had some great features like using virtual missiles to take out the drop targets
Crazy sounds too ! I’d happily own it again but they are pretty scarce over here, rarely seen.
