    No Good Gofers is 1997, it's way later, a great game, but way more modern. I wouldn't call NGG or Bram Stoker's Dracula sleepers, they are both pretty popular, as are most 90s Bally/Williams games.

    #22 1 year ago

    Earlier 80's space themes...
    Blackout
    Meteor
    Firepower

    #23 1 year ago

    There is something so perfect and elegant and dark and mysterious about Mata Hari.
    I think that one is my favorite.

    I guess I have to pick Centaur for #2, but there are many that could qualify!

    #25 12 months ago

    Early 80s:
    Blackout
    Centaur
    Flash Gordon

    Mid 80s:
    PinBot
    Space Shuttle
    High Speed

    Late 80s:
    Black Knight 2000
    Transporter: the Rescue
    Cyclone

    I'm lucky to own atleast 3 of these.

    Thought this would be interesting... We have had 12 80's games here at Blizzard Mountain Pinball during the past 6 months or so (11 are still here, Medusa's center post kicker broke and I can't find a replacement). Here are the 80's games sorted by the average number of paid plays per day:

    1. Supersonic
    2. Pinbot
    3. Banzai Run
    4. Time Machine
    5. Black Knight
    6. Dr. Dude
    7. Mousin' Around
    8. Fire!
    9. Whirlwind
    10. Earthshaker
    11. Big Guns
    12. Medusa

    Yes, the oldest of the bunch (technically a 70's game!) is also the most played. Also of interest - all these games except Banzai Run are set to 50 cents per play. Banzai is 75 cents. The only game that actually makes money, after calculating rent, electricity, etc. for the floor space it takes up, is Banzai Run. However, the older games to have a following and I suspect some people come in to play them and then will play the newer things too, so I'm glad we have them!

    You say old school and list DMD games?
    No Good gofers was 1997.

    Maybe topic title should have been favorite non dmd games. Let's face reality...Addams is 28 years old. That's old school age.
    For me, I am a sucker for system 11. I love them all. If I had to pick...

    1. Whirlwind
    2. EATPM
    3. Earthshaker

    #29 12 months ago

    Space Station. Awesome game play, great sounds, and one of the best light shows

    When I go to locations to play pinball, I specifically seek out older and/or rarer games. I can play a new stern anywhere. I like something different.

    Super Old School: Centaur; Fathom; Medusa (the classic Bally 1981 lineup).

    Old School: Whirlwind; Taxi; Torpedo Alley.
