Which one would YOU get?

I've only played TOM and IJ on location or at shows, so my opinion on them isn't based on a ton of play. I own Scared Stiff though, and I wouldn't trade it for either (even with cash thrown in to keep it fair). It's just one of the ultimate classic themed pins. The gameplay is fun, not incredibly deep, but just turning it on makes me happy.
I've owned an IJ for over 14 years (was my first pin).....still have it. I think that speaks for itself as being a good game to own (all my others have come and gone over the years).
For me it is SS, TOM and IJ. I just didn't like IJ but everyone has a preference. SS and TOM are easy but fun and since I have a large collection they work fine for me. If I only had 1 or 2 pins I doubt they would make the cut since I would get bored of them too quickly. However, TOM is a beautiful pin and I feel fits nicely into a larger collection of 10 or more pins.....just my opinion.
That is the great thing about pinball it really depends on the person and their likes and dislikes.....I have a bunch of hard games (IM and TSPP to name 2 that drive me nuts) so it is nice to play an easier game now and then and mix it up.
I have to go IJ, SS then TOM.
IJ has staying power for me as it is a difficult pin to work through. Not to mention, the theme is fantastic for a 37 year old - those movies were iconic in my life.
SS is extremely fun...good in a big collection, but a little too easy. I play it when IJ kicks my ass.
TOM is beautiful...just not my cup of tea.
