Hate to beat a dead horse but no I'm not. The numbers don't lie. ST ratings took a dive after initial release. Then in Aug (for some reason) the ratings came up a bit. Outside of that it held pretty steady. I don't know how it performed in relation to the top 100 placement over the last year (quite frankly don't care) but this tells the story of the ratings. Take away the first 6 months for "honeymoon" ratings and the title would drop quite a bit.

Again, it's a good game but no where near top 10. I've got no reason to bash it as I own one and would like to sell it in the near future.

Damn, double post when going to a new page bug.

ST's rise had a lot to do with the last code update.
Fwiw....Aurich's translite and backbox decals transformed an ugly st pre into a good looking game art wise.

Dude! No fair using actual statistics to back up you claim!

Looks like you were right, there was definitely a drop in the ratings after the initial buzz wore off. But still, the point is that it stands at #9 *today*, despite the huge beating that the pin took when it was launched (as seen in this thread). The same thing could easily wind up happening with GOT.

Ive owned a lot of sterns over the last decade and for a good timeframe as well. I consider STLE sterns best game to date. Where STLE fails to please the masses, other top 10 pins shine; and where other top 10 pins fail, STLE shines. It's why we all like different pins. STLE to me has the most longevity and replay ability fun factor than any other pin I've owned. So yes, it deserves to be in the top 10 (not that I care), but there's usually 2 haters to 1 honeymooner, so the law of averages will play out and STLE has been out just about 2 years and the latest code put it on the map as one of, if not the, best stern ever. I even heard a little rumor that it may surpass acdc in sales
