    There definitely needs to be an element of chaos or I tend to lose interest in games pretty quickly.

    The "power" magnets in Addams, or the spinners in Whirlwind are two that instantly come to mind. Games that have a lot of shots that return the ball directly to the flippers are the ones that don't stay long.

    Wizard modes can only do so much for a game if it doesn't have a challenging shot layout.
