It could be argued that Brian Eddy cracked the code of what modern pinball players want with AFM and MM. As was said before, there is beauty in simplicity. I would like to see a back to basics approach with good quality hardware and an immersive play experience. Things are getting a little bit out of hand with rulesets nowadays. A classic pin should be easy to start playing with clear goals, but with nuances for the experienced player. Once games got "deeper" than say ST:TNG the casual player gets confused and will not pop quarters in the machine. This is the pinball slippery slope. I think for pinball to thrive again manufacturers cannot dismiss the casual player.
