Quoted from Jaybird815:
Everybody is entitled to be total cheap asses, with "their" quarter. The whole I won't play a game at a $1 but will at .75 is just dumb. It is almost always either .75 or 3 for $2 or $1 or $3 for 2. So in the grand scheme of things it doesn't really make a lick of difference.
But it does, even if it's just subconsciously. You're better off just charging the buck for one game. No one feels gypped then, and it's really high time for games of pinball to require that price. I don't think anyone's cheap for not wanting to put $1 in a $.75 game and losing the excess. Were it me, I'd change that dollar into four quarters first, insert $.75, and be better off for it. In the same way, when I see a quarter on the ground in front of me, I pick that bad boy up, because hey! Quarter!
I don't think we're that far away in our thinking, I just think that the nature of humanity as a whole doesn't want to give away money for no particular reason. That, and I think it's time to stop discounting multiple game purchases. $1 per game, straight (none of this 6 for $5 garbage or anything), with winnable extra balls, replays, specials, etc.
