    I was thinking of buying one, what's everyone's thoughts? Are they worth it or are they any good?

    I can get one pretty cheap locally.

    If you are ok with the fact that it's a simulator and a computer game and it will never equal the real experience, then I think that they are worth it in a small collection.

    I built mine from scratch and kept it for a couple years. The only reason I sold it was to help fund game of thrones.

    They're great for playing tables that you'll never see in real life, and for learning rules of different games. The physics are not 100% perfect, but a computer will always get faster and better with time.

    I have the real ones as well but as you said I can play machines I've never seen before, just not sure at the moment and undecided

    I built one this year, thanks to a friend of mine and love it, will never sell, just keep adding games to it. Been at the real pinball hobby for 20 + years and have restored about 70 real pins and it's nice to go back to ones I have sold and play a game or two. The new system 10 plays very much like real, ball spin, etc., the physics are getting better and better, really enjoying mine. They also help in buying new pins that come up for sale, play it first on virtual, to see if it's your cup of tea or not. You'll be able to play many games that will never come up for sale or can afford. It's a keeper in my gameroom. There are virtual pinball sites and there is a virtual pinball post on Pinside, read up on what everyone is posting.

    As said in a million threads before you can search for, they're good for tables you'll never get to see in real life; It's obviously not pinball.

    Having a custom Virtual Pinball cab custom made at the mo on my old favourite 'Funhouse'. Have give the decals a redesign with a bit of a twist. Besides Funhouse it will play another 200 or so games, but nice to have the finish of the cab as a tribute to my childhood game as the original for now, is unobtainable. Should be completed this weekend, can't wait.
