    I recently found Pinside and have been impressed with all the activity here, even with all the bitching. Brief intro: I recently moved into a new house with a really big finished basement, so being a kid of the 80's I thought it would be great to have an arcade game down there. I started to shop around and thought that since I have so much room maybe a pinball machine would be a good compliment to the arcade game and it would make for some nice variety. Now, I didn't play much pinball in the 80's, the occasional game at the bowling alley or arcade if they even had a pin. They were pretty fun but for me didn't have much long term attraction because the games didn't seem too deep, basically keep the ball in play and score as many points as you can. Fast forward to present day and holy cow do these games look cool and seem so much more appealing than when I was a kid. I love the variety of themes, all the toys on the pf now, the depth of modes etc,etc. So here I am without even owning my first pin and I'm already measuring the basement to see how many I can fit down there. I think I'm in trouble.
