Every new game has an adjustment period. Once you play it for a while you can anticipate the ball a bit as I have trouble seeing it too. Also DMDs are getting harder to read as there's a lot more information. To really figure a game out, it helps to play with someone else and you can relay DMD information out to each other until you figure the game out. I'm personally having a harder time with the new LCD displays as there's so much on the screen and I can't read it well (I can't play pinball with my glasses on as it screws with my depth perception). I also don't have anyone to play with to relay that information. I had no idea what was going on in Star Wars the other day.
I always thought the effort of trying to figure a new game out and then capitalizing on that effort with a good score was a fun part of pinball. If you don't, there's nothing wrong with that.
What I'd hate to see is what seems to be known as Old-Person-Brick-Wall-Computer-Syndrome. I just coined that term myself by the way. I used to see it a lot when computers were becoming the standard and people would instantly shut down when trying to explain anything to them with the "I'm not a computer person" brick wall defense. He'll, I still see it a lot. Instead of just expending a little effort, people would rather just shut down, I guess in an effort to not look stupid? Like that old math study that showed people would just quickly blurt out a 50% answer to a math question instead of taking their time to figure it out in an effort to not look "stupid."
What I'm saying is that if you REALLY have taken the time with some newer games, or maybe just one specific game, and mastered it and then you said "new games aren't fun," ok then, you tried. Buy just don't be an Old-Person-Brick-Wall-Computer-Syndrome person. If I decided that LCDs were too hard to read and quit playing newer pinball, I think I'd be missing out on a lot.
