My favorite Stern pinball machine is AC/DC (Premium/LE). I'm wondering what everyone else likes to play.

#2 6 years ago

Stars!!

#3 6 years ago

I'd say Lord of the Rings. Probably followed by Ripley's Believe It Or Not. I haven't played much Spider Man, though.

#4 6 years ago

Where is LOTR in your poll??? Add it and you have your answer.

#5 6 years ago

Awesome. I was thinking Pinball.

Geez, TSPP not even a consideration?

#6 6 years ago

Star Gazer!

Pretty ridiculous to include Metallica in this poll instead of games that actually, like, exist.

#7 6 years ago

The only ones worthy of consideration are LOTR, SM and TSPP. I choose TSPP.

#8 6 years ago

IJ4 because I like it.

#10 6 years ago

Where are LOTR and TSPP?

#11 6 years ago

I dunno why but the most fun I have had in the past two months on a pinball has been on a Xmen Pro yesterday. I was all smiles from ear to ear for 2-3 hours.

#13 6 years ago

SM it is the complete pin,something for every body -easy to learn ,fast,deep,great light show,great sounds,good art,cool toys,good dmd and best off all EXtreme FUN!!!

I've had the same experience. XMen Pro keeps me coming back again and again. It's a fantastic game.

LOTR is my vote.

#21 6 years ago

AC DC cause it fuck.... rock !!!!

#23 6 years ago

Why is the thread title "What is the greatest Stern Pinball machine ever made & why?" but the poll question is "Which Stern pinball do you enjoy the most?"???

And yeah, you left off TSPP and LOTR, they should be there before some of those recent (and future!) games.

To answer the actual poll question I have to say TRON LE, since it's the only choice I own, except for my new AC/DC Premium which is driving me crazy, sitting boxed in the garage awaiting the closing on our new house next week! It's gonna be the first thing in the new abode!

Oh yeah, I also have TSPP but the flippers are acting up, so I'm not enjoying that much... My new house also features a workshop 1000 times better than the current one, if you could even call it that!

#24 6 years ago

Not having LOTR or TSPP on your poll (not that I'd have voted for them) yet having Metallica on it pretty much makes it a useless poll. That being said atleast you did put the greatest Stern in there. (:

#25 6 years ago

See the top 100 machine rankings for the general concensus. See the comments for why.

ACDC Premium
SM
WPT
X-Men LE
TronLE
LOTR

Elvis
T3
IM
Transformers
Shrek
RBION
TSPP

Haven't played Metallica yet.

#30 6 years ago

Meteor! Kind of miss having it. That progressive sound was great.

#31 6 years ago

It's a tie between Flight 2000 and Sea Witch.

#33 6 years ago

Tron LE, TSPP, LoTR, SM

what pinball geek said, and it is also a awesome game to mod

#37 6 years ago

How did LOTR not make the poll, but a game that can't even be played yet (Metallica) made the poll? AC/DC get my vote...because the game kicks ass!!!

#38 6 years ago

Tron LE.What a great gameplay experience.Not an easy game but will hold your attention.

#39 6 years ago

Greatest Stern pinball ever made ignoring the first 25 years or so... is the real title

For shere brilliance and therefore the greatest it has to be FLIGHT 2000.. innovation, game play & artwork.. has the whole package

#40 6 years ago

Two threads with essentially the same flawed poll.

LOTR

#41 6 years ago

Wait
Why no stingray for 1977
Without that machine where would stern be now that was the title which stern first made
Without stingray there would be no
Acdc, xmen, Metallica

#42 6 years ago

Your list is kinda incomplete. Hard to pick the best ever when you've left off some of Stern's best.

1. TSPP
2. ACDC
3. SM
4. LOTR
5. POTC

I love Stingray, but at least according to IPDB it is not their first machine. Stampede, Rawhide, Disco, and Pinball (EM and SS) came before it.

Dam well there goes my knowledge about early stern machines

#46 6 years ago

Isn't this a duplicate post? I remember a bunch of discussion in how ridiculous it is to add Metallica (not out yet) skipping lotr (top stern in top 100).

Well in his defense the poll asks "which Stern pinball do you enjoy the most."
From all the threads, I wouldn't doubt the level of joy many people get out of staring at the Metallica Pictures.

BBH. It's just so good it's the best Stern game ever...

3 weeks later
