No idea. I was big on arcades, but it was the vids I was playing. And honestly most of them (this is early 80s) didn't even have pins. The ones that did I would feed in a quarter, bounce the ball around a bit, and then drain and walk away. I had no clue what I was doing, and lost interest to go back and play Gauntlet or Rampage or Xenophobe or something else.
It wasn't until Tron came out that I "got it". Played Tron LE at a local bowling alley and was hooked. I'd already had a renewed interest in pins, but that's the game that helped cement it.
I don't have an LE, but I have a modded Tron Pro that I'm perfectly happy with now.
