I was reading the Game of Thrones thread and the talk about how the pop-bumpers are going to work for helping with advancement in the game made me wonder, has there ever been an RPG style pin made? If you have ever played the Epic Quest table by Zen you might have an idea about what I am thinking of. I think that there could be some really fun possibilities.
- XP for completing missions
- Leveling up based on XP
- Upgradable weapons that can be used to allow missions to be completed easier
- Character progress that can be saved from one game to another
I honestly am not a big fan of RPG's, but I think that if it's done in the right way it could be really fun and help to suck more people into the hobby. I think that for a lot of gamers, pinball seems a little pointless, since as good as you do, you never get anything other than a high score. However, if you had a character that you could upgrade and save, even though you might not get high score, at least you got that new weapon/armor/etc.
What do you guys/gals think?
