    #56 6 years ago

    I played pinball when I was a kid and had nothing better to do. The 8 games I played the most in my area were:

    Consic Gunfight
    High Speed
    Terminator 2
    DE Batman
    Addams Family
    Indiana Jones

    ...and in that order as they came out.

    I still remember the week that T2 came out and my local arcade. There was a line of people to play it 10 deep which I waited in many times. The game sat in between SFII and MK2, NOT a coincidence.

    When I discovered IJ a year or two later, I really thought it was the best amusement game you could play at the time for 50 cents.

    I remember Addams not treating me well at all and at the time, I actually didn't play it because I thought it was too difficult.

    So fast forward to about 8 years ago... I was really looking for a cheap pin at first which I found; a Jokerz! for $300, then a Comet project for $150, then I traded for a High Speed and once I found a Swords of Fury it was over. I have bought/sold around 50 arcades/pins over the last 10 years and quite honestly have just about all my grails/wants. My current want list these days is really very short:

    A classic SS Stern pin
    A Mad Planets arcade

    The rest of the games on my want list are more wishful thinking games I like but honestly, would not lay the cash down unless it was a killer deal.
