Quoted from Sjsilver:
This picture says it all to me. This was at the SXSW Gaming Expo, with tons of other neat new things to distract the kids.

Seriously, I don't think I have seen kids crowd around a pinball machine like that since maybe when I was a kid, and even then, they were all absorbed with fighting games and ignored the pins.
Hopefully this video we made really clarifies how versatile the platform really is, but I think nothing illustrates how this is the future of pinball better than that picture.
