So, as I'm getting more and more into pinball, it seems everyone has 1 game that hooked them into pinball. It doesn't always seem to be the first pin you ever played, but the one where pinball 'clicked' and became more than just keeping the ball from draining.
For me, it was Black Knight 2000. I played a bunch of pinball as a kid in the arcades and also when I worked at Chuck E' Cheeses as a teenager. It wasn't until BK2K that I started to understand Pinball as a game instead of some sort of reflex and motor skills test.
As I got older and my kids got older, I wanted one. I even hinted to the wife how I'd love to have a Black Knight 2000, and oh, BTW, my 40th birthday is coming up.. nada. This year I took matters into my own hands and bought one. I love it and can't see ever parting with it.
So, What game was it for you? What made is so special?, as Clay once said, was it the one you banged your girlfriend on in high school? Did you eventually buy one? Is it one you will keep forever, or did the passion for pinball overcome your nostalgia and you moved on from it (the pinball machine, not the girlfriend)?
It seems everyone has one.. what's yours?
