Hey Pinside,
I've been thinking about my next pin and have been stuck between TSPP or FG. I've never had the chance to play TSPP, but from what I've seen online and read it looks awesome. I played Family Guy at the pinball wizard and loved the layout/humor. I'm looking for a pin thats going to stay in my collection (as small as it my be) for some time. As far as the theme is concerned, i don't watch either show religiously.
Which of the two do you think would last longer as far as fun and depth is concerned?

I have both. I like TSPP better but both are worth owning. Then again TSPP was my first pin. It's still around.

I second that

Both lol.

TSPP = Deeper

FGY = Feels more modern (build, feel, sound quality)

both awesome. If you have a family go tspp if it is for adults get FGY. I have both and neither are for sale ......ever!. Games are so different both are worth owning. Buy what you like best.

I have a FGY and I love it, my friend has a TSPP and it's an awesome game! I have to agree with the above posters you will not go wrong with either. Personally I find family guy hilarious vs TSPP.

I third that! It was my first pin too!

Gun to the head pick one, I go TSPP. Can't go wrong with either. I would try and play a TSPP before you buy one though. I pretty much agree with what everyone has said above.

I have owned both as well. TSPP is better.

FGY has great humor, yes. But the drawback for me was that mini playfield. In a home environment, it became tedious.

I understand the novelty when you play on location - it's very cool. But when it's just you at home, there is no novelty. The mini playfield gets old. And irritating if you drain and have to get through that damn mini playfield again.

FGY is better when playing against someone. But TSPP is great against others or just by yourself.

Have both. TSPP was my first game too. Great voice work and call outs in both. More to do in TSPP. Both are fun. TSPP by a slight margin.

One is the up there with some of the best pinballs ever made and the other is family guy.

#12 6 years ago

no brainer, Family guy because of the humor all the way.

If you are ever closer to Boston hit Lanes & Games in Cambridge. I think Mike still has TSPP on location there, along with the Mustang he just added and a bunch of recent Stern games. Do a real comparison in one room.

I much prefer Family Guy.

Both pinball machine and tv show.

you can speed at max 2 hours on TSPP

you can spend a max of about 30 minutes on FG

for me more time=more fun

#16 6 years ago

TSPP is better but FG is also a great game.
Depends on the humor you like and/or TV show
I agree with RTS that the mini pinball playfield on FG gets tedious

You can't choose one, you must get both, question is which one first?

Get the nicest cheapest closest one you see first
