Quoted from dung:
Kinda wondering what *innovation* the op is expecting?
RGB lighting doesn't count.
LCD doesn't count.
Rulesets that go on for 10 pages don't count.
You want wacky toys? Yes the castle in mm is cool. BOTH POTC games beat it. A ship that you hit and it sinks into the playfield? A ship's deck that not only rocks back and forth, but changes the speed to make it more difficult?
MM remains number 1 in part because of nostalgia. It is a known quantity. It is an amazing game, but if it got released today with an updated display, it would probably just be *ok*.
Yeah there is no convincing. Sound, single board technology, 1080 displays, large displays, rgb leds, normal leds, non reflective glass, middle button, update code instantly without a chip and colored armour.
