    Okay, I can't be the only one here like this lol. I was the owner of a FishTales for four long years up until a little over a week ago. I have hated the game since the moment I got it home for many reasons. Tons of times I thought about just selling it, but for some reason it had this grip on me where I just couldn't bring myself to get rid of it. It is the one single pin that I have been this way with and when I watched it ride off into the distance I felt a huge weight lifted from my shoulders. Weird right?? Anyway, has anyone else here been in or are currently in this situation?? If so what is the game and why can't you let it go?

    Never had that problem. If I'm not feeling it, out the door it goes. I bought TS without ever playing it. After I fixed it up, I sold it within a month.

    BSD. Consistently kicks my ass. HATE it, but can't sell it.

    Hate is a strong word but I kind of feel this way about my SWE1. If it was the same size as a regular pinball machine it would be out the door but since it fits in a spot that I couldn't fit a full size machine I keep it since it allows me to max out my collection by an extra game.-It's not the greatest machine in the World but I don't mind it and It's better than having no pinball machine I wish Safecracker wasn't such an expensive game as I would gladly trade it out for one of those...

    Same goes for my Roy Clark cocktail. If someone wants to sell me a Night Moves or Carribean Cruise to take it's place I'll kick it out the door but since it's occupying such a small space I hang onto it.

    If I don't like a game I get rid of it. I only really buy old games so I get a chance to play them to see if I like them first, so really I just don't buy games I hate.

    IM with yfz450, BSD is a game I can't stand 9 out of 10 games. I walk away hating it, then that 1 game is why I can't sell it

    Genie infuriates me as I'm locked into a battle with my son for high score. I play tight. He plays loose cause he's on the leader board. Kinda want it gone. Nah, one more game...

    Chirping Crickets. I had it sold once, but when the guy came to pick it up, I told him I had changed my mind. He was miffed but I gave him gas money for his trouble. Even though it's an EM, it has a spell over me. Maybe an exorcist could help.

    I feel that way with BMF right now. Can't hardly stand the game but just can't bring myself to get rid of it yet.

    Life Space is too short to keep games you hate.

    No fear, I think it's going to make me a better player, but it aint workin'

    Quoted from BobLangelius:

    Well it might make you better at using the right flipper, but not much besides that

    If I hate it in a good way, it'll probably stay. Otherwise it can't hit the door quickly enough!
