    Quoted from Biju:

    1. No more superhero anything. Especially pins, but movies as well. It's terrible CGI for a majority of the movie and the stories are all stupid.

    2. Pinball needs to stop catering to 50+ white males.

    I don't think 50+ pinheads like dumb superhero themed games. Those are geared to a younger crowd.

    But elderly rock stars, that appears to be Stern's bread and butter for the senior crowd.

    Good point; that rant might just be more movie focused.

    Two more:

    1. Topper obsession is weird

    2. Every Elvira pin sucks.

    Pinballers always say “we want something different”

    But they don’t. They want the same stuff all the time - shots in the same places, flippers in the same places, etc etc.

    Zzzzzz.

    Mods are fucking stupid and should be saved for children. Modders ruin game threads by filling them with their self-indulgent images: "look at me! I buy fucking toys for kids and put them in my pinball machine." AAAARRRRGGG!

    Except a Tron pro with no mods sucks. So that negates your opinion and floats yet another (possibly) unpopular opinion.

    Between that and the clown puke LEDs. If you are going to personalize a machine like that, don't expect to sell and everyone to have the same tastes.

    A Tron pro with all the mods in the world still sucks.

    Don't think that's an unpopular opinion at all
    probably a better pin than LZ
    but the tiny screen on homepins is absurd, they must be saving $15

    #469 3 months ago

    Not a LED fan at and never will be.
    I seriously think it gives headaches after a while and it has never been properly analyzed if this could damage retina in a long run.
    Anyway, it makes it hard for me to buy recent pin but I have to say that I really liked my AC/DC...

    Quoted from AntennaMan:

    Godzilla is Elwin’s worst game.

    This is the second weekend in a row that I have tried to enjoy Godzilla and it is not clicking with me. Played it at a couple different locations just to see if it was set up differently…. Not fun at either location.

    Games are weird. Hated AIQ the first 10 or so times I played it. Now I’m really into it

    Let's see a pin with no center drain, just side or near-side drains. Maybe something also with reversed flippers; visually a non-widebody version of Rocky with single flippers near the center facing each side. A backhand shot would be needed for up-the-middle targets. No plunger lane, either, the ball button-feeds to the top of the game somewhere, or maybe is dropped onto a flipper like along the rail in Black Rose. Could even have one or two "normal" flippers near the edges higher up on the game.

    That’d be cool to see, Bob - but nobody would buy it.

    Most of them won’t buy a pin with no ramps!

    Medieval Madness and Attack from Mars don't do anything for me. I get the appeal of MM, but I find AFM to be grossly overrated. The playfield layout is horrendous.

    Agree 100%.

    What is the big knock on Revenge From Mars by the general pinball group? "gee, all you have to do is bash the center". What is the strategy on Attack From Mars? BASH THE CENTER! Yet RFM doesn't get much (if any) respect, and AFM is revered.

    Then you have games like Police Force that get crapped on for hitting the millions center ramp over and over. I guess if it's an alien theme, then it's ok.

    Quoted from joemagiera:

    You really don’t want to do that.

    You want to play Total Annihilation and Multiball all day. Total Annihilation has massive points when you get it cranking.

    If you just shoot the middle all day, if the machine is set up any sort of decent, you’re going to be done pretty fast.

    That it's Pin2k.
    Smaller, heavier, & all around worse in every way.....well the comedy is just as good or better.
    Man the broccoli bit makes me laugh thinking aboot.

    Anyone that thinks just hitting the center is the way to play is a dumbass or horrible at playing, and I wouldn't care for their thoughts on the matter anyway. <--- unpopular?

    RFM is a fun game, the only reason I sold mine was to fund another game, I’d like to get one again one day

    AFM is more than bash the center but it does have simple rules that are easy to figure out, it's a great mix in a collection with pins like JP that have super dense rule sets. It's always a favorite of guests that come over

    BMore-Pinball

    AFM could be boiled down to Grab multiball and shoot the center.

    Listening to silverball chronicles if you shoot the cow ramp and hit the launch button, it turns your spaceships into cows.
