Back on topic of the game. I think it's cool Stern tried something new by using a projector. However, my opinion is that at this price point, I'm not that interested in a non-physical gimmick which doesn't interact with the ball. LCD screens on the playfield impress me more and work well in all lighting scenarios.
At a 1/4 the price, if I wanted a screen projected on the playfield, ramps, bumpers and have virtual interaction with the ball, I'll play Pin2k.
I recently bought a Star Wars Episode One pin, just because I could. It's popularity here has been a big surprise to me. My wife was shocked she actually really enjoys it (hates the movie) and says it's probably a long term keeper. The other night my 19 year old daughter had friends over to watch movies and I let them have the basement. I heard her male friend exclaim, "Now *that* is really cool. That's wild!", when first seeing the pin.
I don't see the same wow factor with Stranger Things' projector feature.
