Quoted from jrivelli:

This also assumes the only EMs played by "us" (myself in this case) has been crappy or some shitty title. I wouldn't even start a game on something beat up looking. I always try to play some at the shows on the nicest games I can find, otherwise why bother. I don't personally hate EMs, I just were never own one, even for free. They are kinda fun to play a few games on every couple hours at the show when I leave the booth. In fact, that or the oddball mechanical arcades are what I normally play

The beat up ones are probably the best ones, they clearly has a ton of play. There was probably a reason for that.

So now its the beat up not playing well ones are the best? Lol you guys are too much!

I didn't say not playing well. One in better shape is going to play better. But if you are looking for a title and every one is pristine it probably sucked to play so they never got beat on. If all the examples are beat to death is probably a well designed game that got played to death. Find the best one you can then clean it up to get it back to what it used to be.
