So I had to opportunity to play some pins last night at a local bar... Couple of notes: I used to love playing Attack from Mars and now it seems so slow and floaty to me. Aerosmith didn't do much for me. I REALLY liked the way MET plays but the theme is a deal breaker. My kids are 11, 9 and 5 so I'm thinking I don't want a machine that involves juicing a guy in an electric chair.
I was in similar situation and had same concern. Have two boys 11 and 8. Had them play some MET at local arcade and had no issues with sparky and the sparky multiball eyes popping out on the screen. I was debating on whcih pin to buy and ended up buying MET after the boys played it and weren't bothered by it. Was a concern for me for sure.
My neighbors sons is in 6 grade and doesn't like Sparky at all, but they own BSD.
Lastly I thought I would never own Met, I don't know any of their songs. Played it a ton at NY, NY in Vegas, came to the conclusion I had to own it.

I really don’t like the music but that machine does look AWESOME! The gameplay looked like it was a lot of fun too. I’ve read a lot of complaints about the animations, but overall I thought they were pretty good.
So far I’m digging what I see and can’t wait for another stream to check it out. Very much looking forward to seeing a premium version.
