    Everyone has that game they love even though the rest of the world tries to tell them it is terrible.
    For me this game is Last Action Hero. Is it deep? Nope. Is it easy? Sure. Is it ugly? To most, yes. Do I play one whenever I get the chance? You bet your ass I do.
    Maybe its because I loved the movie growing up, maybe it's the call outs, maybe it's the forcing me to use the whole playfield (depending how you want to play I guess)
    Last Action Hero is my guilty pleasure
    What's yours?

    I'm gonna feel the fire for this one but this machine is my go to when I just wanna play and not get into anything with deep rules. It's jacked up at 8 degrees and plays perfect.

    Surf N Safari or Class of 1812. Both major cheeseball games that never fail to put a smile on my face.

    #4 58 days ago

    WOF.

    #5 58 days ago

    LAH also. First pin. Never leaving.

    #6 58 days ago

    Big Hurt was my first pin... its a slap fest... load up the bases... grand slam all day long. It has a real baseball experience that is totally fun for me. Rarely did I ever care about score... just lighting up the the game.

    I'm a bit embarrassed at how much I like playing Stern's Wrestlemaina.

    But I have absolutely NO SHAME in loving Baywatch.

    ed: I am absolutely embarrassed that I enjoy Stern's Playboy - it's a fun, challenging shooter but the theme and artwork is just gross.

    "But what about Baywatch," you're probably asking? Baywatch is about making rescues, collecting vehicles and saving lives. The cabinet art and a few of the animations are a bit risqué, but Playboy is completely over the top and doesn't attempt to hide its objectification - one of the game's goals is literally to collect women, for crying out loud. If the Playboy layout were given a different theme, it might be great.

    Anyone who doesn't like playing Orbitor 1 or Robocop is a jerk

    #9 58 days ago

    Gottlieb Hot Shots. The cheesy music and graphics never fail to make me smile sheepishly

    #10 58 days ago

    It shouldn't be a guilty pleasure game because it's so awesome--but took a thumping from the Pinside naysayers who never gave it a chance...but for me, it's Stranger Things (premium or LE...the pro is pretty lame, I think). I still can't stop playing it, almost three months later.

    #11 58 days ago

    Street fighter II pinball. I like the Gottlieb big flippers makes it easy to cradle the ball and aim shots at your 12 opponents. This pin just keeps me coming back. I even have it next to my living room.

    #12 58 days ago

    I had a lot of fun with Secret Service. Gets panned here all the time, but I found it enjoyable.

    South Park. Always makes me laugh.

    #15 58 days ago

    Congo was my guilty pleasure in the early 2000s because RGP ridiculed it. Now it’s my guilty pleasure because I could bank a $2500 profit but I still refuse to let it go.

    #16 58 days ago

    Road Show for me. From the linear ruleset, to the glorious country music. Even if it wasn't my first game, it would be a long-term keeper.

    Quoted from Chumbuket:

    I was waiting for the Street Fighter fan. I always use it as my example of games I cant stand lol. To each their own buddy.

    Quoted from swampfire:

    I dont think Congo has bad rap in the community. It's a totally decent pin imo. Overpriced and ugly but solid fun.

    #19 58 days ago

    Hook. for me the Windcoaster is one of the most satisfying shots in all of pinball, i actually like the call outs, and the light show and music progression getting to and during Bangarang multi-ball is sweet.

    #20 58 days ago

    Shaq. It's a great game. I love trying to get all the hidden features. I've never done all five in one game yet.

    #21 58 days ago

    I go full on old school. Chicago Coin Pro Basketball. My kids laugh watching me endlessly shoot a ball into a hoop but it’s therapeutic lol.

    #23 58 days ago

    NBA Fastbreak - such a fantastic integrated theme. Nothing beats sweating out trophy multi-ball (wizard mode).

    Not to mention it also has a unique backbox, ability to pass and shoot the pinball around the defender, smooth combo shots, and Midnight Madness is a lot of fun.

    I think it doesn't get much love because it is a sports theme.

    #24 58 days ago

    Hurricane. I like it more than Comet or Cyclone.

    Phoenix

    A lot of pinsiders say they don't like it but I do, Wonka.

    #27 58 days ago

    It's not a machine...vodka and sprite zero.

    #28 58 days ago

    Sharkeys shootout. Love that game.

    #29 58 days ago

    Baywatch has always been the one I let go and then go back to and find another. Such an awesome and cheesy table...just like the series.

    It’s nice to see it finally getting a little more love from the community

    #30 58 days ago

    Roller Coaster Tycoon. I always enjoy playing it when I come across it.

    #31 58 days ago

    Of the games in my collection, Riverboat Gambler by far. It's not that easy, and while the music is love it or hate it, I tend to tune that out and just enjoy the game play

    #32 58 days ago

    For me it's Dr Dude. And I also like Baywatch

    #33 58 days ago

    Transformers LE - had it 4 times and wrestling with getting it a 5th time....
    the rule set is impossible and very vanilla. No interesting quirks or surprises. I know I have no hope of ever getting to the wizard mode, battle for cybertron, but for some reason I just love the game...

    #34 58 days ago

    Probably would have to go with Lectronamo for classic SS, Bad Girls for Alphanumeric and Lethal Weapon 3 for DMD (ok,ok,ok).

    EM is tough...I guess I might get some flack saying I prefer late 70s Williams EMs over Gottlieb....does that count?

    Whoa. Dr. Dude is fantastic! No guilt there!

    Xenon

    oooh ahhh oooh oooh ahhh

    #37 58 days ago

    Mine is Rocky and Bullwinkle. I never played the game until I got one on the cheap. Now I play that one the most out of my collection. I have also been enjoying Gottlieb's Monte Carlo. not a fast game but is challenging to get a decent score on it.

    Quoted from ejacques:

    .I guess I might get some flack saying I prefer late 70s Williams EMs over Gottlieb....does that count?

    Counts in my books. If its got chimes, theyd better be Gottlieb
    Bally/Williams EMs dont have chimes, they have thunks lol.
    Still fun games but those sounds kill me.

    #39 58 days ago

    Tough one . It would be between The Getaway and Dr. Who

    #40 58 days ago
    Quoted from chad:

    Ok, I personally dont like The Getaway but it's hardly considered bad. It's a favorite amongst many people I know and it always sells immediately when one pops up for sale around here. No shame there

    I like Raven. Definitely not a great art package but I like it anyway. Spinning the helicopter blades and hitting the pop-up sniper targets is fun.

    #43 58 days ago

    Gold Wings and it’s wacky layout.

    #44 58 days ago

    Cheesy games I like: Baywatch, Rollergames, WWE LE.

    #45 58 days ago

    WWE and Party Animal here.

    #46 57 days ago

    Bugs Bunny and Popeye I thought were fun games and have owned Popeye for a short time.

    good call there. oh and spyhunter too, weirdness!

    #48 57 days ago

    Cleopatra. The first pin I "cleaned up" and got working. The chimes just feel calming.
