i dated a xenon for a while but she would have made a crap wife .. worse still imagine being married to medusa?.
I asked my wife.....she said she can't narrow it down. Too many to choose from. (Actually I don't even think she could name one title).
Of machines, I've had, I think Theatre of Magic and Monster Bash are the most appealing to beginners. These are games that you can get a lot of stuff going on without knowing much about the game. The Addams Family is up there, too.
Creature from the Black Lagoon is probably my favorite game, but I think it's difficult for beginners to take advantage of without knowing the rules. If you play a two player game with a beginner and you play a good game, it'd be pretty easy for them to get discouraged because your score is so much higher than theirs.
Finally, my other all-time favorite game is El Dorado. It's just so easy figure out what's going on, so easy to track your progress, and so satisfying when you can drop all of the targets.
Roadshow and Taf, she played the Bop for the first time some days ago and to my surprise she liked it!
I bought my wife a cv because she wanted one of those ,got tired right away of it and now her favorite one is nba fastbreak she won't let me get rid of it .....she also enjoyed shrek
Had a gf that loved playing Fire. Don't own it but that's all she'd play at the local pinhole.
Mustang pro arrived and my wife took to it. I think the simplicity of the playfield appeals to her. I am going to change the songs to some that we listen to and I think that this machine will be a homerun for her.
