    wheres bk2k?

    #6 6 years ago

    Firepower!!!

    #7 6 years ago

    AC/DC!!

    #8 6 years ago

    well.. guess for bk2k we need to vote on bk. poll only allows 9 options :s

    #9 6 years ago

    I have a No Fear and F-14, so I can't go there - I like them both.

    I really like BK. BK2 is cool, but irritates me for some reason.

    T2 Is the game he kept making over and over and over again (No Fear, AC/DC), so I think I'll go with T2.

    Too many great games to pick just one and the best ones are not on your list.
    I would say just collect them all if you have the room.

    sttng

    #14 6 years ago

    If you are a fan of the show, STTNG destroys the rest.

    #15 6 years ago

    BK2K and AC/DC

    #16 6 years ago

    SM and then STTNG. the next SR star trek COULD be the best of all!!

    #17 6 years ago

    For the year, BK. Nothing in that era looks anything like BK.

    #18 6 years ago

    I voted for SM.best flow of all time
    But I love BK2K as well.

    #20 6 years ago

    Getaway ,,,,,, AC/DC is my 2nd Choice ..

    #21 6 years ago

    Flash is a tough call because it’s a toss-up between that and Paragon (1979.)

    Black Knight is a tough call because of Firepower (which you didn’t list – 1980.)

    F-14 had no real competition in 1987.

    T2 is a tough call because of BoP (1991.)

    HS2 is a tough call because of Addams Family (1992.)

    STTNG is a tough call because of TZ (1993.)

    No Fear is a non-starter – there are too many other games better in 1995 – ToM, AFM, PM, Congo, even Stargate.

    Spider Man is arguably better than FG & certainly better than WoF (2007.)

    And is AC/DC better than X-Men (2012?)

    For what you listed, I voted F-14.

    If you had Firepower there I would have voted for that.

    Second choice is a toss up between Flash and SM. The competition in 1979 was stiffer...

    This poll is a sham. World Poker Tour blows them all away, altho Getaway and BK were good for their time.

    #24 6 years ago

    this is interesting cuzz so far AC/DC is wining.
    a game designer with a more than 30 year career, full of successes and great games, makes a game (AC/DC) that beats em all. It's outstanding to look at this man's career!

    #25 6 years ago

    ACDC has great code, but that was Lyman.. The playfield is no where near STTNG.

    #26 6 years ago

    How do you not have Firepower there - it only sold over 17,000... first SS MB machine... Was the total inspiration for T2...

    #27 6 years ago

    STTNG for sure!!

    #28 6 years ago

    That's a hellava list! But, I have NONE of these! I guess my collection isn't complete!!!

    #29 6 years ago

    BK2K all day long.

    #31 6 years ago

    Honestly, if you have awareness of what came just before and after it, Black Knight was an extremely important, influential, and successful game. For that reason it gets my vote ( best for its time ).

    My personal favourite is probably STTNG, but what few games I've had on ACDC were pretty awesome, and I've never played SM.

    #32 6 years ago

    Best for the year it came out? F-14 hands down.

    #33 6 years ago

    The Nerd police are looking for this house : )

    #34 6 years ago

    Firepower.

    Ron...

    #35 6 years ago

    F-14 is certainly the best pin of the 80s

    #36 6 years ago

    AC/DC

    #38 6 years ago

    No Firepower?!!!

    Jeesh!

    Quoted from PinballHelp:

    Invalid poll. You left out Rollergames.

    Some of the best get no love.
    AC/DC isn't even close to the best, just the newest.
    The best is yet to come and won't it be fine, you've seen the sun but you ain't seen it shine.

    #41 6 years ago

    Rollergames is my choice as well.

    You also left out Elvis.

    #42 6 years ago

    It would be slightly easier if you broke this up into eras or systems. Even then, it would be so difficult. F-14 vs. High Speed. Firepower vs. BlackKnight. AC/DC vs. Spider-Man. Etc, etc, etc.

    #43 6 years ago

    AC/DC.
    Where's Elvis? Don't mind playing this title.

    #44 6 years ago

    For the year it was made I'd have to say Black Knight... I think the sales speak for themselves... It was a game-changer: Split level, Magna-save, timed drop targets (maybe that one was done before...?). BK2K was just a re-hash of this and IMO not as satisfying to play... and that was years later!

    Don't forget if you coined it up for 2 plays you got the free battle the knight mode.
    This was brilliant and really increased the coin drop for ops.
    Single players would play a 2 player game to get this.

    I won't say it's his best, but Superman was off the list as well.
