    I was reading some thread where people were kind of upset that someone told them they had a free game. They knew it but they didn't want it. They made it sound like they were too cool for school.

    I like to stroll around the arcade between games looking for blinking start buttons.

    Finding a free game is awesome. But tonight I put a buck in LOTR and had such a good first game I almost walked away on the second. Drained immediately on the first ball like it knew what I was thinking.

    It's amazing the people who don't know about credits/freegame/match. The "pop" means nothing to them. I wonder if they wonder what it is. My last arcade visit I found a lot of free games. Their loss is our gain.........

    I'll leave free games intentionally. I usually get bored after playing a long game on something, so I have no interest in playing the replay.

    I remember what it was like to not have quarters as a kid. Impossibrew for me to walk away and knowingly leave a free game in an arcade.

    I was never good at pinball as a kid. When I got into the hobby 4 decades later, I thought my first machine was broken in some way whenever it made that loud POP. I didn't know what I didn't know.

    Some of the newer machines are so bad, I have a hard enough time plunging the second ball, let alone playing any extra games I may have won.
