What is the theme that you dislike the most and why?
Tough question, don't think I dislike themes just games play is what counts for me, any theme is tolerable as long as the game play is good.
If you are talking about the machines that I own, I do not have a theme that I dislike.
(and mind you, I like some of their songs, and LOVE Detroit Rock City, but the reality shows they did in later days totally ruined it for me)
Oh, and even more so, when they pick the movie version of something that would otherwise be classic, like the Flintstones. I think for Judge Dredd they steered clear of that pitfall and the machine is way more timeless than if it had Stallone's ugly mug on it.
Wow I didn't know I hated that theme but I saw a Mars God of War at the Tacoma convention this PM and I add that to my list.
Country music pins, which pretty much just comes down to Dolly Parton.
Oh wait, Roy Clark too.
Redneck, wife beater stuff like NastyCar, Roads Ho, Fishy Tails, and Big Dumb Hunter

Sure... In the 80's. I was talking about a 2014 Kiss pin!
Dude, that was the 70s. Mid to early 70s. Some close to 40 years ago. Novel in their day to kids that were younger than me. What's that tell ya? Isn't there something more current? Back in the 90s DMD machines were made on movies and themes that might of sucked, but at least they were current. Is now the time to make pinball machines that might suck based on themes that are no longer current?
Any pin themed as billiards. I wanna play pinball, not eight ball with a silverball hitting targets.
I know eight ball deluxe is supposed to be one of the grail pins, but the theme kills it for me
Quoted from SealClubber:
Horror. Pinball or not, it does nothing for me.
Threads like this are awesome, because I feel the exact opposite. Horror is hands-down my favorite theme.
I guess my least favorite pinball themes are sports (though I love sports in real life) and circus/clown stuff.
I could agree on KISS too. I could not have one in my house. The sight of them is the visual equivalence to me of nails on a chalk board.
