Shaq Attack.

But I'd still take it, burn it, and love doing it.

Street Fighter 2 is just a horrid horrid game!

#104 3 years ago
Quoted from Jjsmooth:

I can tell you haven't played El Toro..

Had one here for 2 years for a mate, not a great game but I'd still take it if it was in perfect working order and free.

#105 3 years ago

If it was in a war zone "pick up only" might be a little tough.
If it was at a nuclear power plant I have to pay someone to get it so that's not free
Bottom of the ocean forget it.
I would have to take anything else I think.

I played it last night. I'm the guy losing 8 to 4 on ball one. But I love this game! And I paid for it.

Sucker. These guys are offering to give you one.

They want to give me the Bally one. No thanks! It took $5 from me and cost me my Schwinn Stingray that got jacked out front of the pizza joint while I played it in 1972. It wasn't a bad game because I kept dropping quarters in it, but the Williams one is much better.

Quoted from Pinplayer1967:

Go sit in the corner and think about what you just said.

Ok I did. I come up with this, frickin gay!

#110 3 years ago

I'd take any game, if I'd never had it before.

Of the games I've had Aerobatics will never get back through my doors, even if paid, let alone for free. A waste of wood.

#112 3 years ago
Quoted from kcZ:

Hercules... For the win!

"For the lose!" in this case...

Every time I see one of these on location, I think, man there could be 3 or 4 good games in that spot I could enjoy. One was recently put on location locally where I used to play, other games like LOTR were moved out to make space. I refuse to go back until they remove that monstrosity.

#113 3 years ago

Tron for sure followed by WWE Wrestlemania.

It's amazing how many people read the thread title but not the initial post and didn't understand the thread.

I think it might be there for a while....guessing these don't get relocated too often.

#117 3 years ago

Anyone say it yet?

Chicago Coin...Cinema/Hollywood.
Holy Bad!

#118 3 years ago

I would take litterally any normal game if somebody gave it to me. People who are saying they wouldn't take games that are worth 1000's of dollars if given to them are either full of crap or just plain crazy!

The only ones I wouldn't take are the home model games. I'd have a hard time taking one of those even if somebody payed me.

#119 3 years ago

Any Gottlieb system 1 or Chicago Coin EM. I passed on many free offers of both systems BITD and don't regret it.

The question isnt about the money!!! Its about gameplay, theme, music, art. Its about thinking, there is NO WAY I want THAT pin in my house!!!

Then pretty much every game from the last 10 years.

#122 3 years ago

Why turn down a game that's free and in good condition? Well, if I HAD to pick, and I'm surprised no one has mentioned this game, but Pioneer. I couldn't even bring myself to finish Ball 2 it was so boring.

#124 3 years ago
Quoted from shimoda:

Because you have to move it and look at it and it takes up valuable space where better ones can go.

#125 3 years ago

This one... cause I wouldn't have anywhere to put it.

There are no images of this game in the archive, except the backglass. Please rectify this situation.

#128 3 years ago

Hercules as no way I could get it into my house. No Playboy or very adult sexually explicit themed pins. Not because I'm a prude, but with our own children and several other that visit often it just something for me. No judging her of others who might disagree, just less hassle and for other reasons the way it is at our house. Really, really boring and in ultra poor shape ones I'd probably especially if they happened to be ultra hefty as well. Pokerino comes to mind as a boring and ultra hefty, ultra wide body, and very slow pin.

As you wish! Two inch flippers, four pop bumpers, two drop targets that are a mother to hit, a rotating drum that is a death shot, and some pretty decent artwork. Another brutal Steve Kordek masterpiece from 1963. Cost me $400.

Wouldn't want a gottlieb strikes and spares. Not really a pin game, boring boring boring. 2 DMD to keep going/repair. No thanks. Also that bugs bunny birthday pinball. Yikes is that some ugly pinball.

#131 3 years ago

I'd still take any working game even if the person said you could not resale it. It would be worth the effort to give it to someone trying to get into pinball or a youth group, church, you name it. No pinball is that bad.

That doesn't look so bad! If somebody has a decent one of these and you can't get anybody to take it for free, PM me.

#133 3 years ago

I would have bought it for free.

Wrong El Toro everyone. The Williams one looks cool actually.

Check out the Bally version, and you will understand.
7 rollovers, one shot on the left and right, the end.

#135 3 years ago

I'll take any working game that anybody else doesn't want.

#136 3 years ago

I was talking about Bally's El Toro. Awful. Extra ball is indeed a penalty......

#137 3 years ago

Street Fighter 2 would be my pick as well.

Only time I ever played it was at Pinballz in Austin and even though it cost tokens, had to force myself to finish all 3 balls.

#138 3 years ago

Thinking about valuable space I would probably turn down all EM's, Star Wars Episode 1, Revenge from Mars and any virtual pinball machine.

Oh and unlike CF I would take a free WOZ. (So I could turn it into a coffee table-I keed I keed)

I found a $100 on the ground ripped in half I was out looking for twenties. So not my cup of tea... I suppose I could fix it with tape and use as intended. Nah I'll pass on money for personal reasons.

You guys make me laugh seriously

I hate money it has ugly art IMHO
