Are there pins that make you laugh from the sheer silliness of the theme or sound? Or is it something else that tickles your funny bone when the game is supposed to be serious?

I nominate Heavy Metal Meltdown as #1 as the most unintentionally funniest pinball...ever. The rapid fire shredding makes my ears bleed after a very short time. And the screaming of HEAVY!! METAL!!! MELTDOOOOOWNNN!!!!! bring the hilarity and gut-busting guffaws. There was a tournament this past Saturday where HMM was played (very well) by two semifinal players. Their scores were through the roof and my ears were almost deaf. Another guy busted out in full-on air guitar assault mode. I threw up my devil horns and headbanged to the cacophony. Gotta love 80s cheese!

A second runner up wouid be Shaq Attack. "The ramp, the ramp, the ramp" and the rest of the announcer's voice clips are so annoying, it becomes funny.

I will also add TX Sector for its awesomely 80s porntastic music.

So what are your selections for an UFP and why? Discuss!

Bad Girls? so outrageous

A big chunk of 80 & 90s Gottliebs & Data Easts. Betwixed the god awful back glasses, horrible PF artwork, and atrocious call outs, there's no shortage to choose from. Many times so bad it's good.

I can't help but laugh when I start Apollo 13 multiball.

+1 for Bad Girls....so bad they're good.

To me, the deadpan "A raptor got him" (or whatever it is) in Jurassic Park is the funniest call-out ever.

Shadow - got the game, loved the humor and wit. Watched the (god awful, absolutely worst ever) movie, and realized – oh.....they aren’t trying to be funny….

Great game that I'm still upset I sold, but the glass always made me laugh. The mirrored shades, the van and shirtless "Dirk Diggler" guy...Pretty funny.

When you ignore Save Timmy on JP and he gets electrocuted.

I love that callout and I always laugh when I hear it. I thought it was "oh...T-rex got him."

I think Rollergames would fall into this category

The "awkwardly sexy" artwork on Future Spa.

The whole backglass is insane on Dyn-O-Mite, but the black Ace Frehley cracks me up every time.

I believe it's also the first SS game!

Hollywood Heat. really any 80s gottlieb/Premier knockoff theme. whenever i play one of these, it feels like getting Go-Bots for Christmas.

Radical cracks me up when the guy starts repeating "SKATE. OR. DIE." in a deep voice.

Stern pinball inc, their entire lineup. Cracks me up.

Not a pin but..

RRRRRRRAAAAAAD MOBILE! and another all-time classic "It's DOUBLE CHEESE!"

#23 5 years ago

Was waiting for that one...cue Big Dick up next.

#24 5 years ago

Laser Wars backglass. I've Always wondered what was said at the photo shoot with matey (Gary Numan) squatted down like that.

#25 5 years ago

Gold Wings. At least I think it was unintentional.

#26 5 years ago

Any overpriced NIB game with unfinished code.

It does both. I believe that if you outlane drain, it's "A raptor got him." During the match and you don't match, it gives the "Oh, t-rex got him" version. I think you have to have it off free play to get the t-rex one to do it every time.

And yes, frying Timmy is madatory.

I find Congo always makes me smile. Even after a poor game and hearing How Disappointing. That always seems to cheer me up.

Gottlieb Spring Break. Although maybe this one was made to be silly intentionally.
