    I really miss finding fun little things game designers would add into their games. Many of the times these would make you laugh, but all would make you smile when you would find them.

    -Why are there a stampede of cows running across my DMD on Shadow? ...I don't know, but it's awesome.
    -Rolling joke of "move your car" in many different games.
    -Crazy Bob, he sure gets around.
    -Secret Laugh Mode - Shadow
    -Poker Night - STTNG
    -Cow attack - AFM
    -Smither's Bonus - DM

    I could go on and on. You could really tell game designers were having a great time making these games, and we all had a blast finding these little things. Why does it seem this is a thing of the past? I really hope Stern, JJP etc. give the freedom to the game designers to keep this part of pinball tradition alive.

    What are some of your favorite Pinball Easter Eggs?

    I would argue that radio mode on AC/DC and MET is far and away the best easter egg ever.

    And it's only for home buyers. You bastards!

    The snake in MET barfs out a cow...

    I like Easter Eggs and prefer them to Xmas presents but I much prefer completed code that works.

    You have probably seen this but I found it very cool.
