When I sell a game, I never tell the buyer why I don't like it anymore. Let them figure it out for themselves.
[EDIT: of course, I do point out issues with my specific example. But I'm not going to tell the buyer that Buzz and Bud give me nightmares.]
My teenage son frequently beats me, and he doesn't even like pinball.
I once used the Tag system to make a funny.
I am not really incognito. You all know me. Then again, maybe that DOES make me incognito?
Some people love it, but I still cringe when I think about the ball hitting the glass on WhiteWater, and I haven't owned the game in over a year.
I broke three teeth when I tried to eat the Gumball out of my old Twilight Zone.
There's this set of lights in town, and they only cycle when pedestrians hit the crossing buttons. I've thrown the vehicle in park a few times, jumped out, hit the pedestrian crossing to stop traffic, then jumped back in my vehicle and driven away...
I habitually walked three miles into town to play pinball. But never in the snow. I may be obsessed, but I am not insane.
Oh, and on a daily basis, I try to revive a two year old for sale thread by asking if the game is still available.
Sadly, I admit to being addicted to Pinside. I am hooked. It is a very easy to use during quiet time at the house. Oh and yes I Pinside alone.
My Whitewater sat dismantled for almost a year because I have no prior experience in soldering and feared ruining it before I acquire skills while not working on acquiring those skills in the mean time. It turned out, no soldering was necessary.
I occasionally pay a dominatrix to come over and dominate my games, since I can't seem to get the job done sometimes. Pinball is meant to be played, and I insist on the best.
Some of my pins have error messages and credit dots that I have not dealt with because I am lazy.
Some of my pins have issues that I have diagnosed and purchased parts to repair, but have not repaired yet because I am lazy.
I actually think it's a sweet pickup line to tell chicks I have a whole whack of pinball machines. Surprisingly, my wife doesn't get jealous about this line.
I have a few insert lights out on a couple of games, and I just can't be bothered to fix them...
I got a few:
I haven't touched my pins in about 3 month but I check pinside almost daily.
I sold a real nice wh2o two years ago for 2.5k because I didn't like the music.
My hs2 came without tilt plumb bob, and it's still missing.
I use my wife's minivan as a pin hauler.
I set my games to 5 balls.
I think pinball is a great hobby but some guys take it a little too far...
