I’m getting ready to buy my third game and can’t decide. I own GOTG Pro and JP2 Premium. I think three tables is my max given the space I have. I’d like something with good flow and decent ball times. Once dialed in, STh seems very cool with the UV kit and the code seems a lot better than when it was released. The projector is unique. I also like modding and there are a number of things you can do with STh. Deadpool is fun, funny and unique. The shots are very satisfying. I probably can’t go wrong with either, but wanted to see if any owners had the same dilemma of a decision. Thanks for any help.

I went to my distributor back in January to try out some Stern games since my arcade doesn’t carry any. I spent time on DP, JP, TMNT, BKSOR, Beatles. Almost passed over Stranger Things as it had gotten a beating here on Pinside. But I decided to give it a try and I fell in love. I kept going back to that and JP and at the end of my time there I ordered an LE. It’s taken the usual TK lock and Demogorgon dialing in, as you will read about on the STh forum, but I truly love this game. Challenging, eerie, great code and super fun! I liked Deadpool too, great art and funny, but STh was just super unique. Good luck with whatever you decide.

“I’d like something with good flow and decent ball times. “


one game is a highly polished work of art masterpiece and the other is a super cool modern version of a classic that requires third party code to be tolerable.

I just made this choice and went with DP tho Sth is on my short list. There is something strangely appealing about sth I’ll admit that.

Stranger things is a beast, that game will own you...So Addictive...Go with Sth if you want a rush.

Hey nice question.

I was thinking to add something and went to the arcade to play (including LZ LE, GnR LE, EHOH, and all the other Stern LCD games). If I had to pick the two most favorite would be DP and ST

I have always liked DP premium but Stranger Things was just a bit better for me. I especially liked the projector and the atmosphere especially the UV kit.

Not sure if I will get ST am going to follow this thread to see other opinions.

I had DP and though it is excellent I would not sell my STH to get DP back. STH is better than I thought.

I would go with Deadpool

I just played a Stranger Things LE tonight!
I am not sure why this game has not gotten much love. It is absolutely stunning and fun fun fun just fun. Deadpool is also very fun, but I will be hard pressed to take DP over ST. ST is just a very nice fun, simple games, not sure how deep the rules are but it is certainly a fun shooter!

Thanks for all of the help. Based on the poll, it's a pretty close decision and both games are great. I decided to go with Stranger Things. My distributor had an unclaimed one on the floor when I went in yesterday. I was expecting to wait a few months for anything. Tuesday delivery is perfect. Now I have to track down a UV kit. Thanks again for the input.
