Hey guys, just joined the site today... Grew up with a few games (when I was real young we had two real shit ones called like Monte Carlo or some shit like that) and then when my parents split my dad splurged on an actual machine and got "Freefall" by Gottlieb I think and Star Trek. Man, so much fun... Anyways fast forward 20 years later and I have my own teens and I've decided I miss the hobby enough to grab a game or two myself. Maybe even start a collection!
Anyways I have a few simple questions if hope to get some input on before buying.
1). Are newer games worth the sticker generally? Looking at the top 100 quite a few seen a lot more recent..
2). On that note, are new ones ever released that are stinkers? I look at the Beatles playfield for example and it looks insanely simplistic.... Reading some reviewers comments seemed to confirm my suspicions
3). Do machines generally hold value? I'm asking because I'm thinking of going big on a limited (looking at batman 66, Ghostbusters, Deadpool or Metallica). In the marketplace ppl generally seem to be asking close to MSRP from what I can tell ... Does that affect reality?
I've also noticed a lot of games ppl ask more than original MSRP ... Provided they are kept in good shape do a lot of these go up?
Anyways ya, lol, pure newbie questions I know lol thanks guys hope y'all are friendly, just wondering about point of views or there.... Would be nice to know I could buy a nice limited, play it for a bit and still have an asset
