    OK I'll start and I've been major guilty of this one...

    "I'll NEVER sell it!"

    Greatest game ever !

    LTG : )™

    #3 5 years ago

    "What is Stern's next title?"

    "When is the next software update?"

    "Honest dear, just one more game."

    #4 5 years ago

    Oh my, this is a good one. I get so sick of the "tweaked", or "dialed in" oh boy, I'm sure glad it's tweaked, in my most sarcastic voice. Or the home use only for the last "x" amount of years. Like that means anything.

    #6 5 years ago
    Quoted from LTG:

    Greatest game ever !
    LTG : )™

    That is almost exactly what I was thinking. "This is the best game ever!"

    #7 5 years ago

    $10k by Christmas.

    It's dialed in.

    Look how fast I can drain my balls.

    Quoted from Mudflaps:

    Look how fast I can drain my balls.

    Too much information.

    I personally hate "shopped".

    #13 5 years ago

    " These damn things aren't getting any lighter "~SpOoKy

    Probably just a fuse.

    Honest Honey, this is the last one....

    Board rules make me refrain from providing a truthful answer.....$)@&$))$))$!!!!

    #19 5 years ago

    Not a phrase just a single word and no one on here can really argue it.

    "NEED"

    #20 5 years ago

    "This game's been shopped!"

    (which more often than it should means, "I replaced the flipper bands and a couple of easy-to-get-to post rubbers.")

    #21 5 years ago

    Epic

    #22 5 years ago

    "Harry, the clock on that nine-foot nuclear weapon is ticking..."

    #23 5 years ago

    "Can you please send me a close up of the shooter lane?"

    #24 5 years ago

    On CL, it's got to be "excellent condition."

    #25 5 years ago

    Easy. 'Pristine.'

    #27 5 years ago

    "Promise, honey. I'll sell one of the others to fund it."

    #28 5 years ago

    minty fresh

    #29 5 years ago

    Where did that ball go? WTF

    #30 5 years ago

    "Keeper" within a week of owning it. You can't truly know a game is a keeper for at least several months IMO.

    And the general sentiment that a new game is amazing. Look at the historical rankings — almost all new games start high and drop shortly afterward as opinions settle to reality.

    #31 5 years ago

    shipping kills the deal for me

    #32 5 years ago

    Stern sucks

    #33 5 years ago

    "Excellent condition" or something similar. I'm amazed at how often excellent means "anything but excellent".

    #34 5 years ago

    +1 shopped

    #35 5 years ago

    My collection is complete.

    #36 5 years ago

    "I'm going to look at a game. I'll be back in about an hour". My wife says "pinball time" is always at least 3 times what I say it will be.

    #37 5 years ago

    refake

    #38 5 years ago

    "Just one more game"

    #39 5 years ago

    "SDTM. . . Bleeeeep !"

    "Now this I can do"

    Last person to get Woz as we count down by ones, sorta maddening like 999 beer woz's on the wall

    #44 5 years ago

    "Code needs updated"!!! These aholes are the same people that can't help themselves and buy every new NIB that comes along, DUH.......the code is never finished for you, Mr. I measure myself by my serial number and gotta be one of the first.

    #45 5 years ago

    Another favorite: "Collectors Quality" This is usually "I can't fix anything to save my life guy....but I'm rich"

    #46 5 years ago

    The most overused phrases on Pinside sure are:

    "I wish they'd make an Iron freakin' Maiden pinball"

    "Hey wow, where's the Big Lebowski pre-order list"

    #47 5 years ago

    "There aren't very many stairs."

    #48 5 years ago

    "Game is completely restored."
    "They go for xxxx dollars on ebay."

    #49 5 years ago

    This vs. that
