Quoted from DaveH:
I HATE video modes. They are fine once, but over time, they just annoy me. They added one in Game Of Thrones, and it was lame. I understand why they were added in the 90s, but there is nothing good in them. I own iPads, phones, Xboxes, and computers. I can play video games that are hundreds of times better anywhere in the world. And even back then, an Atari 2600 from years earlier kicked its butt. I prefer pinball when I’m playing pinball. Now get off my lawn ya crazy kids.
Agreed; I play pinball to play pinball. Not to play some 30 second video game with two (sometimes 3!) buttons.
I am okay with others enjoying them, EXCEPT for the fact it has caused a bit of a video mode resurgence lately. Just. Stop. It.
Make pinball. Make it good. Forget trying to be like the "cool kids" in the video game industry...
