    Every Stern ever made. And anything since 1981...........TAF, TZ, and Champion Pub Suck............

    I make it a point not to down vote, but this statement comes very close to earning one. The longer I'm in this hobby, the more I realize that, while they may be cheaply made (especially now), Stern pins are some of the most fun ones out there.

    I suppose that If you did not have a Stern in your Line up, you would have said that all of them were crappy.

    Right now?
    Congo.
    $2000-2500 higher than the game is worth driven by new collector fascination.
    Same goes for games like Centaur, Fathom, and several others unless they CQ examples.

    Games like DH, I500, and NGG all offer superior gameplay.

    #205 4 years ago

    An overrated game for me is one that I just sold that everybody else is suddenly saying is the greatest game ever.

    #206 4 years ago

    I purchased a Bally Star Trek recently that needed a lot of work. The fellow doing the work for me said it's one of the most underrated games, and actually has a lot of great shots that you have to hit. He said the rating on Pinside does it no justice. He's supposed to be finished with the restoration in another week. Can't wait to get it back!

    For me, T2 and HS2 are duds. There are many others that I like playing occasionally but don't want to own. I love Centaur but the prices on it are way out of bounds for what there is. If I get one it will likely be a full restore at this rate. Alot of the high end pins I'll let the hard-core collectors go after. To each their own.

    #208 4 years ago

    For me anything I don't own is overated!!!!

    Guys that have been in the hobby a long time all say this. Things like JD is a $1400 game. I don't think MM is a $10000+ game and think price is driven by it's #1 rating. Big money is thrown around on BBB and I think that is just silly. What I think doesn't matter since price is market driven. Everyone has their own tastes and reasons for owning a game.

    This. I'm on the hunt for a Sharkey's Shootout because it was the first game my wife ever played, and a TMNT because it takes me back to being a kid and playing in the local pizza place. I couldn't give a flying flip about what their ratings are.

    #211 4 years ago

    Every game ever made is overrated...yet at the same time underrated...still.

    I do find threads about which games are overrated and/or underrated to be a bit overrated.

    #212 4 years ago

    I think Gold Wings is underrated........Sincerely Tom Cruise, Val Kilmer and Gilbert from Revenge of the Nerds......I mean Goose

    Quoted from jroakland:

    no, you just do not have enough money...or place! like all of us!

    i don't know if the addams is overrated but i have played it a couple of days ago, and it quickly feels like an old machine to me.

    #214 4 years ago

    Hot chicks that like guys that play pinball is way overated!

    Quoted from jawjaw:

    Not from the people I talk to overall, the "market sets the price", not individuals regardless of number of years in the hobby.
    Most older collectors are just watching the comedy right now.
    There is just a better gauge on value based on changes within the market, and negotiations for sales.
    JD is no longer a $1400 game, but at dealer unrestored price you can still get it for around $2200 in excellent+ condition.
    Superb examples right now are at $2800 with proper, unbusted topper, you just have to be diligent.
    People that are paying $4K or more, the game had better be full CQ or a HEP restore, and that includes the cabinet.

    #216 4 years ago

    Wow, this is an old tread. 2 years ago I said LOTR.... still overrated IMO but these days the cake really goes to TZ. The game is just not fun enough. Amazing spectacle, possibly the best licensed theme ever for a pinball, but the awkward often slow pacing and rules you don't care nearly enough about just get so old, so fast. To me TZ is mostly a vanity piece like BBB or CC. In terms of play-ability TAF utterly destroys TZ.

    #217 4 years ago

    can so explain me how ratings of each pin are calculated?

    for exemple Metallica pro:
    game design:8,351
    artwork: 8,498
    Music:8,117
    other aspects: 8,419

    how this machine can reach the final score of 8,485? only the artwork is very slightly over this score!!

    Agree with Strange. TAF over TZ any day.

    #219 1 year ago

    I appreciate AFM, but it is not top 3 for me by a long shot. CC and BBB are probably up there (for most overrated) just because of their prices. WH20 is just not my cup of tea.

    Its all relative...

    #227 1 year ago

    Statistically, based on my rankings versus it's combined rankings:

    The Pinball Circus (-1.7)
    South Park (-1.5)
    The Dark Knight (-1.2)
    F-14 (-1.2)
    Solar Ride (-1.1)

    Most underrated at Hardbody (+1.5)

    #228 1 year ago
    Quoted from HighProtein:

    Which is more so?

    IJ is the worst of the two games.

    #229 1 year ago

    Every Stern game made

    What purpose does this generalized, unfounded statement serve?

    #231 1 year ago
    Quoted from Walleyefisher:

    Maybe most 2010 plus sterns

    Quoted from Monk:

    It's my opinion. That's what this thread is, but will concede I should say all Stern post LOTR

    LOTR is one of my top pinballs, unequivocally

    #234 1 year ago

    STTNG, I really dislike it.

    #235 1 year ago

    These 2 top 10 ranked machines, BTW, both are in my collection

    AC/DC - super repetitive modes with impossible to reach wizard mode
    Metallica - as above

    Having said that, they are nice shooters and are great themes
