First post, so please be gentle
I was just curious as to why there has always been a sort of deference to the vintage pachinko games from the pinball community. I mean, what cooler accent could you have in a gameroom than an old 50's-60's-70's pachinko machine? I've been restoring these now for a few years, and sure, they were made in Japan, and sure, they were not coin-op, but seriously. They do look pretty cool, and both evolved from the same basic idea.
Pachinko and pinball really are like two brothers. I just wonder why they seem to be mutually exclusive. Any ideas?
