I see there's no love for Transformers here

Uff god no. And the prem+...I mean the "upper playfield?" whatever the hell you call it is probably the most hated thing by Stern that isn't a Troll Doll.

Man :/ I like that upper playfield.... Once I figured out how to walk the ball up with a good rhythm I wrack up extra balls and tons of points with the super spinner and pop bumper awards, and I like that it switches to the old school EM sound when you hit the sensors.

But I know what you mean about it being hated.

Is it too late to switch my vote to Stern's Indiana Jones

TWD LE
GOT premium

#207 2 years ago

TSPP
LOTR
Very very close runners up...ST, SM, TWD, MET

Yes I own them all!

Thats alot of great games you have! I still gotta go with MET and TWD though.

#209 2 years ago

GOT PRO
TWD (any version, but I have more fun on pro)

#210 2 years ago

Spider-Man vault & AC/DC Luci vault

#211 2 years ago

A lot of TWD & Met in collections

my two are WPT & 24

#213 2 years ago

LOTR LE
ACDC Prem/LE

#214 2 years ago
Quoted from Dayhuff:

TSPP--The best game they will ever make.
MONOPOLY
Elvis coming in a close third.
John

I agree on TSPP

#216 2 years ago

LOTR getting some serious love!

#217 2 years ago
Quoted from Who-Dey:

LOTR getting some serious love!

It's a classic IMO. I almost put it on my list in front of TWD, and I probably should - but I hope I never own or play it again after logging well over 5000 plays on it

#218 2 years ago
Quoted from Who-Dey:

LOTR getting some serious love!

AS IT SHOULD!

#219 2 years ago

I have only got to play a few games on LOTR so i dont know any of the rules at all but it is definitely a good shooting and fun game.

#220 2 years ago

That's it.
Newcomers will enjoy the flow
Casual players will like the adventure
Hardcore players will destroy the ring in seconds and rush Valinor

#221 2 years ago

Or ... if you're not really into the whole Tolkien fantasy world, it's just ..... okay.

And then it's on to a different game.

Quoted from BENETNATH:

But (IMHO) it's a horrible multiplayer game. Owned it for for eight years. Didn't get played much the last few. My father and brother absolutely refused to play it with me. They could go make a sandwich and watch an episode of Seinfeld while I played my ball.

#223 2 years ago

Agree, like TSPP. single player only

#224 2 years ago

TSPP/TRONLE...someday, BM66 (most play, currently, as well)

#225 2 years ago

Eek!!! Liking my STLE more and more.......IM, SM, FGY.....can't do 2....all great!!!

#226 2 years ago

Their best has yet to come. Games are getting better and better.

I suspect that you are right. Stern keeps adding more and more great people to their staff. Things are looking really good for the future of pinball.

#228 2 years ago

My collection of 5 games = 100% Stern

They’re my favorite manufacturer (I give em grief tho)

If I had to sell all but two.... I’d keep TSPP & TWD

So to me those are the two best?

#229 2 years ago

1. TWD
2. TWD

#231 2 years ago

MET Pro and AC/DC Premium are my top 2.

I do like TWD, but I prefer playing the HUO example at my friend's house. The ones on location just don't feel right.
BM66 is not my favorite layout, but the overall theme/experience is fun.

#233 2 years ago

Metallica and Ghostbusters Prem for me. I know a lot of people had reasonable complaints on Ghostbusters, particularly the airball stuff, but it just never happened to me regularly enough to spoil my experience. I think it’s just a fun game with groovy music.

#234 2 years ago

My two would be

LOTR &
GOT Pro

Runners up would be TWD pro and GB prem.

#235 2 years ago
Quoted from WackyBrakke:

TSPP
LOTR

Yes I own them all!

That is my vote too

-1
#236 2 years ago

Iron maiden !

#237 2 years ago

I like themes so for me wwe and ghostbusters

#240 2 years ago

T3, family guy.

-c

#241 2 years ago

SM and LOTR

#242 2 years ago

Acdc and Met

Runners up are Tspp twd lotr

#243 2 years ago

Game of Thrones and Lord of the Rings.

#245 2 years ago

Metallica....and I know I will get hate for this one but Kiss is such a fun shooting game it is absolutely one of my favorites.
TWD and AC/DC are also great so tough call. Longer is my list of Stern games I don’t like but I will lost those elsewhere.

#246 2 years ago

Lord of the Rings - It is still popular 15 years later. I know it is not a tournament game but not every game should be judged based on that. Deep rules with every mode feeling distinct. It is the perfect integration of theme and game.
AC/DC Premium - You could argue Metallica here or even The Walking Dead, but I think AC/DC gets the edge here. Lyman is still trying to tinker on the rules to balance everything and the premium adds to the experience unlike Metallica where it is not universally seen as a positive. The Walking Dead is great, however, AD/DC was the mic drop that announced Stern was back making great games again.

I wonder how many people will revisit this thread after they get their Iron Maiden games and change their minds?

Not getting an Iron Maiden. I'm interested in playing one... but not owning one.

It's weird...Nobody I know listened to Maiden growing up...no one. Not even my "burnout" friends. There was AC/DC, Metalica, Rush, Def Leopard, Alice Cooper, Guns & Roses, Judas Priest, Scorpions, Van Halen, Quiet Riot and many others...but no one listened to Maiden.

#249 2 years ago

I'd have to go with TSPP and LOTR for the most feature-packed all around killer games. But for pure fun, that would be TWD and GOT.

I'm starting to think it might be a Michigan thing.

Everyone thinks their NIB is the best game ever around here.
