While I don't have a lot of machines, I have owned a few, and over the years come to some thoughts on which games I've played and liked and those I didn't.

I'm not going to go on about those, but I have been thinking of what I have now and how I would rank them. This probably stems from having some people I work with over last evening and trying to explain the rules and differences between games.

My Ranking:

Star Trek Premium
X-Men LE
NBA Fastbreak

It's really close between X-Men and MMr. The nod went to MMr due it being still pretty new, so it's fresher.

I really enjoy X-Men since I removed the giant Wolverine figure from my game. I'm not sure, but it may have more staying power for me than MMr. But then I used to just love Fireball, and when I played it lately, it just didn't do it for me anymore.

So who knows about what the ranking will be in a couple of months.

My opinion would be worthless

Sort of trying to get a discussion going on ranking and how it changes over time.

Six months ago, my ranking would have been different.

I like Fastbreak...and play it almost as much as MMr.

I would rank them as follows:

1) MMR
2) Xmen LE
3) Spider-Man
4) ST Premium
5) NBA Fast break

You have a great collection no matter how you rank them !

I like NBAFB more than MM and ST. Yeah, I said it.
I go thru phases with my pins as to which ones get played and which ones don't. Then I get a mod or repair part which renews interest on that game again and it gets played a lot for a while, until another game bumps it again.

my feelings for my games never changes
I like all my games for different reasons
some I played as a kid, I enjoy the trip down memory lane
some games are a fun blast to play, good way to blow of steam at the end of the day

I have only played two games on your list ,
'Spiderman',it is fun, I like it
'Star Trek', only had a few games, it did not grab me

I think it's a fun game too. Opinions on collections are pointless though, and that game, and what it is to you, is a good example.

I love Maverick, I put that machine within my top 10 ever, above my CV, MB, TOM, SM, etc... I'm probably the only one that would, but to me, that machine is awesome in so many ways.

It's your mixed tape!

It's barely worthwhile for me to have an opinion about how I rank my own collection. It changes every week. I'm a "hot hand" type of player. Which means I usually have a game that I'm playing a LOT, and most others are lost in the shuffle. And yet then I'll play a game on one of the lost ones, and boom, it's my favorite game for a week. Whatever strikes my mood is the best game ever made

Quoted from SealClubber:

I like NBAFB more than MM and ST.

I just rebuilt my fastbreak...new ramps/decals, rings, coil sleeves, new back box graphics and some new backbox plastics, LEDs, some new playfield plastics, etc, etc...and a lot of cleaning and misc parts.

Really plays well now. Some of the rings below the timer were never changed. It just seems like a new machine, except for the dings and scratches here and there.

I also got a topper made...so it looks as good as it plays.

I get the humor in MMr, but I think the gameplay is better with SM & ST.

My MMr doesn't play as well as I believe it should. Has to do with the ball feed to the right flipper on the start of each ball. I've done some adjustments, but it still feeds subpar...in my opinion.

Maybe if it,aged different I'd like it better. I'd fill out a ticket at PPS, but really can't figure out what to say.

Anyway right now ST is the most fun.


#16 4 years ago

It does do that...



#17 4 years ago

You got a nice collection. Just remember, rankings are just that. I still would play all of them regardless of which one is number 5. My next purchases probably will be a SM or a METLE.

1. MMR
2. SM
3. ST
4. XM

#18 4 years ago

Yep... this is how I would stack them up;

1) MMR
2) SM
3) ST
4) XM
