    We've all experienced it ... sheer joy in playing a game.

    So many choices for your money - both new and old. Which one delivers what you want most out of playing to you?

    In terms of sheer intensity, BKSoR first comes to mind. Based on current pricing, I guess it’s also a good bang for your buck assuming you want sheer intensity.

    When the older titles were still an unwanted affordable secret to most a day with Flash Gordon or Fathom is always a pleasure. Sadly the market has priced the secret pleasures to new heights. For my wife and I a day in the Twilight Zone is always a joy.

    I've played about ten to fifteen 8 Ball Deluxe machines over the years. The one I have at the house is undocumented HUO. Aside from a burnt flipper coil everything is original and it plays perfectly and everything feels great. The rubbers are original and the playfield has full mylar and hasn't been waxed. I always clean with a dry cloth and not wax because I don't want to change anything about it. I've even played several with reproduction playfields and rebuilt assemblies, and they play great, but they just don't have that extra touch of magic this original one has. It's really hard to describe. Now that's pinball goodness.

    Good call on EBD! I’m gonna say a classic session on Space Shuttle. Trying to max out that spinner, never gets old!

    Each of my games gives me a thrill. When they stop, it time for them to move on to a new home.

    - Defeating the Genie
    - Nailing the center shot to start Earthquake
    - Hearing “You’re a Super Star player!”
    - Hearing the bell from the Signal hole
    - making it to Bohemian Rhapsody mini-wizard mode
    - Getting a special on any of the others

    My house could be on fire but if I have a triple stack on BSD, I would have to play it out. If I even noticed.

    Currently for me it's Deadpool
