Quoted from PopBumperPete:

The art, real art opposed to Stern Photoshop

Amen brother!!!

Pinball was at an all time high in the 70s.Some great playing ems out there.Keep trying them at shows until you find one you like.

If you don't love or at least appreciate EMs,then you dont really love or appreciate pinball.

If you hadn't had a chance to play:East coast Silverball Museum

Central:Clays place/show

West coast:Pacific Pinball museum/show.

Frame of reference

55-45 years old:Likes/remembers Ems has been playing longer, has lived longer ,therefore is wiser and not overly impressed with something just because its new.This age group caught the "biggest wave" because pinball was more popular and more readily available to them.

45-35 years old:If the individual loves pinball then he probably likes Ems and SS.Most in this age group are B/W snobs with some earning enough to take a chance on NIB(Stern,JJP) stuff.This age group experienced the "Renaissance" of pinball in the 90s.

35-25 year olds:Waiting on code
