All good advice. My first pin was WOZ. Then GB. Then Spider-Man. I've owned Dialed In! and it's fantastic in so many ways, especially playfield design, shots and flow. But the music and theme turned me off. I just decided to get a Hobbit, due to the new code 2.95 update. It sounds so much more complete now. It takes time and code updates for pins to hit their stride sometimes, like with BM66 recently and WOZ before that. Both great games now. If I could choose 2, and my first was a long-playing adventure game like Hobbit, I would add a fast, punishing game like Tron, GB or Iron Man for the second. Star Wars is very hard, fast and short (for me at least). Walking Dead is too. You can't go wrong with an AFMr or MMr either. Best bang for buck, by far, IMHO, is buy a NIB MET pro for $5800. A new Hobbit and new MET pro? That's a fantastic small collection, or start to a larger one.
