I have a collection of hundreds of console games spanning more than two decades. Since I became involved in Pinball I cant remember the last time I purchased a video game....
I have been pondering why, my conclusion is that games just don't offer the same kind of challenge anymore. To me they seem to require little to no skill to play them to completion. This is not true in Pinball.
Modern video games can be learned in 5 minutes, It takes me months of play to absorb a pinball machine.
I will admit that I get my ass kicked playing video games online so there is a level of skill there, but not the intense focus and patience that is required to play good Pinball.
Maybe I'm getting old.... Anyone else ditch video games for Pinball?
