    I’m curious to see what game uses the action button the most when it comes to rules and actions throughout the game. Personally, Game of Thrones comes to mind as each house has a different power during the game. What game do you think uses the action button the most?

    The Hobbit by far. with all the different modes for the action button.
    And with that i mean, don't press before it reaches a certain point. and all that stuff.

    GoT uses it well for sure. I also like Star Trek's use to fire the photon torpedoes. The "bomb" type use in some games (DP Boom, GOTG Hadron, etc) is good, but I like how ST uses it in a more specific and thematic way. The add-a-ball use in Star Wars is pretty good. The tie fighter kill/pizza eating though...clever I guess but I'm not a huge fan. Good risk/reward at least. The new "swipe a ball" in Stranger Things sounds awesome, but unfortunately I only have the pro so can't use that feature. I love it for BK:SoR magnasave...if only the magnasave itself worked as well as the games from the '80s... :/

    Any game that uses it for a mode select is nice...better than hitting both flipper buttons on the older games.

    JJP POTC is good too with using it to fire the canon to sink the Dauntless, cycling through rewards and collecting gold.

    AC/DC has great implementation

    Good question. I'd say Hobbit uses it very well to delay modes or locks, and to gather ring charges for points as switches get hit (depending on the color the button is depends on what you're using it for).

    Also Batman does a great job. Use it to change the channel and to use gadgets you've collected. Very important feature.

    SW best for me but I still haven't played Hobbit a lot.

    SW and PotC. Constant bashing, all meaningful, multiple uses

    My top 3:

    SW is #1 and it’s not close

    GOT is #2 and got a lot better with the last update.

    Hobbit is #3

    The ones that don't actually have an action button.

    For things like magna save? Yes, terrible placement. But I am fine with it in most other cases.

    I understand putting the magna save there to make it harder but it just doesn't work....not with the speed of modern Sterns.
