As it stands today:

1. Congo. By and large the best DMD i've played.
2. GNR. The pin is just damn fun. Great use of magnets. Very colorful pf.
3. TFTC. Again, just damn fun. The DE rulesets around this era I enjoy a great deal.
4. Flintstones. Love the colorful pf. Also the rules are easy to follow. Very laid back pin. Light hearted
5. BSD. Fun, but kinda the same thing over and over. Dark and dreary.
6. TS. Pure player's pin. Very serious.

I guess I've found that I enjoy pins that aren't so serious. I like pins that are easy to play and fun.

All are favorites.

#154 6 years ago
Quoted from tamoore:

All are favorites.

Good call! Otherwise we wouldn't have them. But out of 27 machines I can give you first to go and last to go.

Last to go would be Big Daddy
First to go would be TronLE

Quoted from o-din:

Last to go would be Big Daddy
First to go would be TronLE

First to go would be the novelty games, in this order...

Rapid Fire
Strikes And Spares

Then, the EM's:

Sea Hunt
Hi Dolly
Mustang
Soccer

Then probably:

Baby Pacman
Slugfest
World Cup Soccer
Rocky & Bullwinkle
Baywatch
Batman Forever

Now we're to the real keepers....

Radical!
Diner
Mousin' Around
Starship Troopers
Simpsons Pinball Party
Godzilla

And the last 5:

Metallica (I HAVEN'T EVEN TOOK IT OUT OF THE BOX YET!!!)
Creature From The Black Lagoon
Whirlwind
Whitewater
Circus Voltaire

There. I did it, you bastard.....

#156 6 years ago

Now

1 AC/DC Luci
2 CV
3 MET Pro
4 IMVE

#157 6 years ago
Quoted from tamoore:

Then, the EM's:

Sea Hunt
Hi Dolly
Mustang
Soccer

Can't really blame you with these.
But on the other hand several of my EMs besides Big Daddy will be staying for a very long time-
Kings & Queens
Rocket
Bon Voyage
Magic Clock
Palooka
Slick Chick
Fireball
Flipper
Pit Stop
These are some of the cream of the crop in very nice condition, and letting them go would mean I would never see them again, or any like them.

#158 6 years ago
Quoted from rai:

Tron
AcDc premium/STLE (tie(
XM LE
PotC

Had a couple of additions to my collection. Also will make the though call no tie this time.

Tron
IM VE
AcDc premium
XMLE
STLE
SM
POTC

#160 6 years ago

Since my collection has changed quite a bit lately:

1) STTNG
2) WPT
3) Apollo 13
4) HSII
5) AC/DC Pro
6) 1973 Gottlieb Roller Coaster.

That being said WPT is brand new so we are still in the "honeymoon phase".

#162 6 years ago

-ACDC Luci
-METLE
-JM
-TZ
-STLE
-TS
-TFLE

Not sure I've found any pin yet that is a permanent part of the collection. ACDC and TZ are contenders. But I'm relatively new to the hobby and there are so many great games left to enjoy and plenty more around the corner. Wish I had the gigantic basement and a pinhead wife so that I could keep them all.

1. Tron
2. TZ
3. ACDC
4. ST
5. IJ
6. STTNG

#165 6 years ago

1. Sinbad
2. Corvette
3. Baywatch
4. Revenge From Mars

And yes, I realize most would swap 1 and 4.

#166 6 years ago
Quoted from cait001:

And yes, I realize most would swap 1 and 4.

I wouldn't.

1) Paragon
2) Sinbad
3) CFTBL
4) Elektra
5) Space Invaders

#167 6 years ago

Right now, it's a tie between Congo, IJ, and WOZ, with LOTR and my imaginary pre-ordered Hobbit coming in a close second.

#168 6 years ago

IJ, RFM, TSPP, eATPM, MNF, RS

These are all a blast IMO

So 10 months ago The Shadow was numero uno on your list.......and now it's gone.

#170 6 years ago
Quoted from Astropin:

Yes...but if it was still here it would be in the top 3

Quoted from cosmokramer:

Same thing I said a few months after I let my first one go.

#176 6 years ago

Current order:

1. FH
2. TSPP
3. Soccer
4. DW

6. Close Encounters

(Diner is currently at a friends on temp trade for Tommy whilst I repair it. Tommy would be right behind TSPP if it were in my collection - Diner is for sale - still a ton of fun and the most challenging machine I own but I have other things I want more (Whirlwind, Whitewater, Shadow))

Can never leave:

Bad Cats - wife's orders - will be receiving the total restore treatment when PF and Ramps are done.

Likely to only leave if I find a better example:

Funhouse

First to leave:

Diner
Close Encounters
Soccer

#191 6 years ago

My favorite pin is usually the one that I turn on at that moment. I always walk away thinking man what a fun pin, I wish I had time to hit the start button again

For me, mine all have great fun factor, that's all that really matters, too hard to rank!

#192 6 years ago

1. Tron
2. Star Trek TNG
3. Mustang
4. Road Show
5. Getaway
6. Jackbot
7. Revenge From Mars

#193 6 years ago

The Shadow - Favorite of all time.
Metallica Pro
POTC - Love the pin except hitting the heart shot 50 times to get super jackpot (exaggeration)
TFTC - Cool game but I can only fit four so it'll be gone soon. I don't love the theme.

#194 6 years ago

Right now:

1. BSD
2. Blackout
3. TZ

Not surprisingly, ranking goes from newest to oldest purchase. Though I didn't play Blackout as much as I played TZ, even when I first picked it up. Now I play it quite a bit more as a break from BSD which I've been playing often. Turns out the orbit shot on Blackout is almost the exact same shot as the left ramp on BSD.

#195 6 years ago

#196 6 years ago

This is my first post on Pinside, although I've been a lurker for a long time now. Here is my ranking of our current machines - I'm pretty sure my husband would rank these differently.

1. Luci (An absolute blast to play and with Aurich's artwork in it she is a beauty to look at.)
2. STTNG (Second pin I ever bought and still a lot of fun. Now if I could get Aurich to redo the translite I'd be a happy girl.)
3. TOTAN (First pin I ever bought.)
4. CV (Probably the most beautiful pinball machine I have ever seen. Artwork is gorgeous. I'd keep this one as a piece of art if nothing else.)
5. TZ
6. NGG (Relatively new to the collection - too busy playing Luci to play this one very much.)
7. WH20 (Absolutely cannot *STAND* the music and callouts in this game. Love the ramps though. I'd probably sell this one in a second if my husband would agree.)

#198 6 years ago

1. Fire
2. Monopoly
3. Black Knight

4./5. Casanova/Hot Shot are both projects at this point, can't really rank 'em.

#199 6 years ago

1. TZ
2. IM
3. AFM
4. BSD
5. TAF
6. HS2
7. FT
8. WCS
