Granted that while I played a lot in the early '80s, it wasn't on a variety of machines. We had an Alien Poker, Silverball Mania and a Magic in my game room. By far, the Alien Poker got played more than the others.
Something about the voices and ever-increasing pace of the background effects of that just kind of pulled me into the game. I haven't put a game on one in probably 20 years but I know if I found one to play it would be like riding a bike.
I'd love to find a nice one to add to my collection. Hoping for a repro playfield and backglass at some point so I can find a beater and do a resto myself. No way would I part with a Scared Stiff for it though.
