Which pins have you pressing that start button

over and over again? For me so far it has been Bally's Eight ball.

The grid never lets you go, but in heavy honeymoon phase w TWDLE currently....hard to turn it off.


(I know you asked for 1, but probably a tie overall for me on those)

The Hobbit for me.

Good choice. Ball times are so short and fantastic, you can't help but hit the start button again.

My List: (I just love shorter ball times now).
Dragonfist: just a ball buster. Love it
Quicksilver: sweep those targets! Killer.
Bally Rolling Stones : drain monster. Love that.
Farfalla: amazing selection of drop targets with the ramp that goes up and down. Underrated game imo.
Fathom: triple playfield scoring is awesome.
Cheetah: cool rules.
Evel Knievel: nostalgic . Great for gambling.
Wonky: played it and it's really really good. Can't wait to get mine.

All are great gambling games too. I love playing for dollars with friends.

Iron Man is so addictive. Great game.

Eight Ball Deluxe

#16 4 years ago

Eight Ball Deluxe, BK2K, BKSOR are my top 3.

#17 4 years ago

Stern Star Trek.

#18 4 years ago

A tie for me right now - Munsters LE and Kiss pro . Have a hard time shutting off either once I turn one of em on .

#19 4 years ago

Mata Hari gets the most play at my house. The main reason is that my wife loves it so much. El Dorado (EM) and Houdini are doing it for me lately. Two really different game styles, that's for sure.

TWD & AS in this house

#25 4 years ago

To me, a game that has that "one more" appeal is a game that is so tough that the ball times are short. You agonize over the drains but can't help yourself from hitting that start button again and again.

I find many games mentioned here to be very fun (IMDN, TWD, etc) but not games that I can sit and play 15-20 games in a row.

Paragon is my choice. It gets the best of me very often, and even when I have a great game, I feel like I can do better and hit that start button one more time.

ps: someone said Motor Show? wth?

#27 4 years ago

Beatles. After a couple thousand plays (3-ball), I've gotten to Taxman multiball twice. I keep thinking "this time I can get to Hard Day's Night multiball and then finish modes for Taxman."

I think "one more play" lends itself to short ball time games. As much as I love LOTR, it does not have that "one more play" feel.

#28 4 years ago

BSD, Iron Man, Dialed In, Deadpool, I can think of a lot of games actually that have that 'just one more game'-feeling, and that's a good thing.

#29 4 years ago

Maiden and Tron for me.

#30 4 years ago

Bram Stoker's Dracula.

'Ohhh this is too easy!'

No it's not. It's frickin' hard.

#31 4 years ago

Total Nuclear Annihilation at my local spot ... and I own Maiden Premium

#32 4 years ago

Deadpool, Medieval Madness

#33 4 years ago

Robocop is the one I find myself standing behind the most.

Painfully simple rules, extremely fast, cool sounds.

In my collection I replay The Shadow the most

#36 4 years ago

Flash Gordon - It’s just brutal

For me its MM. I can rarely play it (closest one I know of is 2h away) and when I do I just cant stop. Lowering the drawbridge/ raising the trellis and destroying the castle is just so much fun. Top it off with the two trolls and really nice dmd animations make me want to play until my coins are out.

#41 4 years ago

Can not help pressing the button again (a dozen or more games later) on:

Alien Star
Space Station
Swords of Fury

#42 4 years ago

Fish tales
Iron Man

#43 4 years ago

overall, because I am so inconsistent, I would say any game I play. I find that while on 1 game I will hit every ramp, every shot one right after the other and then the next I will do the complete opposite. I always find my self saying, "No way, I can't be that bad" and then play 1 more.

I only have 3 in my collection (TOM, DP, MMr) and all 3 of them have that replay-ability for me. I love them all. Prior to that, Black Rose and Getaway II did the same thing for me. One more broadside, gotta "Getaway" one more time. Just real fun pins. When I go to the arcade (usually Silverball in Asbury Park), I find myself going back for more on Cactus Canyon, Whitewater, AFM, and STTNG the most. I will be there in 3 days, will see what draws me in and forces me to keep coming back.

#44 4 years ago

I’ll echo others: BSD, Iron Man and Paragon. I own two of the three, so I hit start a lot. When I play, I have a set score that is the baseline I should reach for every game and a score I should get to before I can quit.

#45 4 years ago

BK:SOR for sure. Iron Man. Star Wars (Stern). My '59 woodrail Straight Shooter is damn addictive. When I had my Blackout, I couldn't walk away until getting one Blackout. Generally the fast paced butt kickers are the ones that I just have to try again and again until I have a decent game. I also like a longer journey type game, but those can wear you out after just one long game.

#47 4 years ago

FH and Shadow top on my list. Hard to stop playing those once you get going.

Also like FT and BSD but I often quit playing out of frustration.

IMDN definitely belongs on that list.

#48 4 years ago

Shadow, TWD, Whoa Nellie, for me.

#49 4 years ago

I500 for me right now.

#50 4 years ago

We all get on that "new shiny object" game kick and then after a few months that one more game feeling seems to fade. But one has withstood my test of time....
