Quoted from GoneFishinLvMsg:
Depends on your definition of quality. The two pins in my collection that I play the least are the ones which cost me the most.
Funny you mention this because my first "quality" or game >$3k was TSPP and I only played it maybe 40-50 times over the two months I had it. I am no pinball wizard by any means but every time I played the game it didn't do it for me like my other games. I found myself playing and enjoying say Congo more than the new kid on the block.
Part of the reason for my impulsive TSPP purchase was because the condition and most important price ($3500) was just right at the time. I couldn't lose and actually stood to turn a profit cause another HUO one sold for $4200 within a day otherwise average price then was ~$3700-3800 for a nice one. I don't regret buying it and at least I learned that sort of stop and go play style is not for me with the exception of Roadshow which some consider to be stop and go as well
Also had I not bought TSPP I wouldn't have got another game I really wanted which was Indianapolis 500. The person I traded with really wanted one and was two games over his happy wife space limit. He also couldn't put up any extra cash on top nor want to sell the machine outright despite my generous offer. So the trade ended up being a 2 for 1 deal and I got another game that seems to be the flavor of the month here...Johnny Mnemonic. Turns out I enjoyed JM more than I500 initially For the same money I had invested in TSPP, I now have two games I play a hell of a lot more even up to this day and best part was in the end two people got exactly what they wanted.
Quoted from ovfdfireman:
When I had just one I didn't play as much, got tired, with multiples you can switch when you grow tired of playing.
The nice thing is when you come back to the original game you grew tired of playing it feels like a new game again.
