    I have only played a couple of games with shakers and don't seem to understand why a lot of people like them. They just seem like an added distraction to me. Really seems like a waste of money. What is the deal?

    On some games they aren't that great, others they work good IMO. I had a TFTC and it fit well I thought. My buddy has a Tron, and it's just meh...

    Play TRON with a shaker and you will instantly see how much more immersed you become in the game.

    Probably was not set up correctly.

    I love the shaker on my Transformers...goes well with the sound! The game would not be the same without it.

    I don't get the appeal either personally. They don't bother me at all but I don;t get the excitement.

    Try playing Earthshaker sometime, the first pin to have a shaker. It's very appropriate there.

    TFTC...awesome. JPTLW....dinosaurs are HUGE...so shaking makes sense no?! MET....heavy metal music and a shaker....no brainier.

    Distraction?? More like interaction

    I'm going to put a shaker in my Tron tonight but more then one person has said to put it in Xmen instead. I will try it in Tron first then move it to Xmen if I don't like it. Can you please tell me how to "set it up correctly" so I get the full Tron experience out of it.

    Thanks.

    I bought one for LOTR, tried it in TRON, and decided I didn't have to have one in TRON. Love it in LOTR. MET is getting one tomorrow.

    My ACDC rocks with the shaker! Love it. Choose War Machine and hit the spinner....Feel the bombs dropping on you!! Love it. Not the same game without it IMHO.

    I was never a big shaker fan at all. Found that my speaker upgrade gave me a shake and better sound. But the new Sterns incorporate shakers very well. In fact, I recently purchased 3 of them, and I am glad I did. Although, of the upgrades that I consider a must for my machines......the shaker is that last (or even optional).
