First, a reminder. We are not to discuss Politics in Pinside, so please limit this to Pinball Games and titles only.

I was wondering, since the state of Pinball and the World seems to be on a bit of a roller coaster,
what pinball Games made are political in Title or theme?

Ill start with a sentimental favorite, Spirit of 76.
Celebrating our Nations Bicentennial, its important to me, as it is the year I met my wife, working at Disney in the
Bicentennial Parade!

What other games and titles might there be that reflect Politics in Pinball?

....................

The second part, since we shouldnt share political specifics, is what Pinball Title best reflects how you feel
about Politics today....

For me, thats easy, because of healthcare, Its "Scared Stiff"

What Pinball Game title represents you best in your views?

Lastly, a reminder. We are not to discuss Politics in Pinside, so please limit this to Pinball Games and titles only.

Safe Cracker. The last pin deemed in some places as a gambling device due to the coin release mechanism. It really hurt the games sales and is why so few of that absolutely amazing title were made.

Ah yes, the cheesy anti-drug slogans of the 90s I was working on my Rescue 911 this week, and one of the attract screens has "users are losers" appearing on the DMD. It doesn't have an option to disable it.

But can't it be changed?

You can add two screens of custom messages, but it doesn't look like you can do anything to change any other screens/messages.
