    Hi,

    Im into pinball for an year and I am still figuring out many things. Something I realized is that pin prices and rankings are not strictly related simply to the fun generated by the gameplay, but from other factors like rarity, theme, art, etc. Well, somebody can say that it's "exciting" playing and/or owning an expensive or rare pinball machine. Others think about the popularity of the license, movie, etc.
    But in this thread I would like to ask what's your favourite pinball from a pure gameplay/fun perspective, after a long exposure to the game: honeymoons not allowed, only pins you played a lot for long time and that you deeply know and understand. So lets look for the best mix of great gameplay and durability, regardless the rarity, price, irony, calls, music and art.
    Think about this: you can change the music at your wish with Pinsound, add any custom cabinet decals and backglasses you like, and all pins costing exactly the same (say 2K). Whats your top5?

    Yes, sorry if that was not clear! I meant:if price wasnt a factor, if you get any machine for a quite cheap price, any titles.

    No, I dont know where to buy a AFM or MM for 2K! ??

    #29 3 years ago

    Judge Dredd

    Do it the desert island way. You are about to be shipwrecked on an island arcade with 5 pins, lots of beer and parts. But it may be forever (so resale is out) . Since the island pins are all 5 years or older (taking care of the "too new to know" factor) what would be the ideal pins.

    This takes out the $ value as well at the "I just bought it so its the best" factor. Otherwise this poll gets done every few months for years so I should include the Beating Dead Horse gif, but oh what the heck

    LOTR, CFTBL, WH2O, MM, and one more

    #43 3 years ago

    Games that are deep enough to keep you coming back for more without feeling like you've seen everything:

    IJ
    WOZ
    AFM
    AC/DC premium

    I would add MET premium as one, but I don't have that, so I'm not sure. Just seems like a great game for the long haul.

    I'd add GOT LE/Premium, but you said no honeymoon games. But, man...that game just seems like it's going to be so deep and impossible to finish.

    I can't add LOTR just because every time I play it, it takes over half an hour to finish a game. That gets annoying after a while.

    And Congo's fun, but gets old fast.

    Would you please take the elastic bands off those outlanes on LOTR. I know you suck as a player otherwise. But dude, just wrong.

    No elastic bands. So...you know...could be a problem with your skill set. Just sayin'.

    With my skill? Should I post your IFPA position? (#5962)

    Come play my LOTR.

    #47 3 years ago

    Anything for the 90's era for me. TOTAN, TFTC, T2, WCS, TOM. Etc.

    #48 3 years ago
