    GBLE and Viking

    #52 1 year ago

    Now that I don't own any pinball machines I miss them all

    Wouldn't want to own again:

    Road show
    Tf
    Swe1
    Rfm
    Lw3
    Space Jam
    Striker Xtreme

    Quoted from bellbrand:

    So much negativity about GB.
    I guess I’m in the minority I really like it.

    GB is a really good pin. It could be great, if Dwight polished up the code.

    South Park. I loved playing it in the arcades, hated it when I brought it home.

    So great we all have different love and hates!

    If anyone has a HUO SP please pm me!

    Why don't you own any more pins?
    Did you move to PA (Pinheads Anonymous)? Bawawawa!

    Guardians of the Galaxy. I still hear those awful voice actors in my nightmares.

    Also SWe1. It's terrible.

    I love my GB. It is my most played and longest owned pin.

    #58 1 year ago

    Owned T2 a week. Replaced with Fish Tales. Demo man lasted a week. Replaced with Judge Dredd. Bad Cats less than a month. Biggest letdown Ghostbusters LE. Had it less than a year. Theme was great. Gameplay not so much. Even money traded it for Iron Maiden LE. That on was the Best decision I’ve ever made

    #59 1 year ago

    Just don't understand the hate for GB.
    I love the wider spread on the flippers.
    I love the tight right ramp shot.
    I love the magna slingshots.
    The mb is one of the best in pinball. Especially with the shaker.
    Artwork is kickass.
    It's a difficult game but I love a challenge and shorter ball times.
    To each his own.

    #61 1 year ago

    Star Trek premium for me, in and out rather quickly
    BTW, after nearly 3 years of ownership, I still really dig my GB premium

    #62 1 year ago

    Who Dunnit.
    El Dorado.

    #63 1 year ago

    Don't hate me!

    I wanted to like this game!!!!!

    SHADOW.........Sorry Shadow fans, great looking game.

    #64 1 year ago

    Monster Bash... It just didn't keep me interested

    #65 1 year ago

    Monopoly. I bought because of the theme but got bored of the game play.

    #66 1 year ago

    The Walking Dead. I had a Prem. It was a fun game but also very frustrating, the rare good game was super fun but it was not often enough for me.

    #67 1 year ago

    Munsters pro, owned less then 2 weeks.
    Judge dredd
    Popeye

    #68 1 year ago

    Every and Any game someone wants to overpay for.

    No such thing as a pinball bolted to the floor!

    #69 1 year ago

    Pinball is so cool. Games like GB which I still own don’t do much for me. WOZ also does nothing for me but I bought it with my dad so it stays.

    Other games people on here have mentioned are my favorites. Probably ST, TWD, MET and Kiss would be the last to go and it is interesting that they did not last for some long at all.

    Different strokes for different folks.

    #70 1 year ago

    IM was my only big mistake of a pin. Enjoyed it on location, but was wrong about home play.

    #71 1 year ago

    Indy 500 3 days
    Stern Rolling Stones !!! Just a huge let down

    #72 1 year ago

    Oh yeah

    JETSONS ! another TURD

    #73 1 year ago

    Popeye new in box because it was s package deal with Addams Gold

    Another Turd

    #74 1 year ago
    Quoted from whitey:

    I500 really? I've only played it on route and that was years ago but I thought it was pretty fun. Been kinda half assed looking for one local for the last few years.

    #76 1 year ago

    Forgot about that one
    Unboxed and sold

    Unboxed a South Park that sucked too

    #77 1 year ago

    MM - Wanted the game so bad for many years. Finally bought it and couldn't wait to sell it. Weird...I know.

    #78 1 year ago

    MBr and Houdini. Houdini left after 3 days

    #79 1 year ago
    Quoted from jorge5240:

    GB except I haven’t sold it. Just too lazy. Anyone want one?

    Yes. I will give you 3 dollars and a hello kitty eraser.

    Oh boy, when I take out the games mentioned in this thread the pinside 100 looks like the new winner of the biggest looser!

    Survivors so far are (1990s games and up):
    AFM
    LOTR
    TZ
    IJ
    IMDN
    FH
    BBB
    TOTAN
    AC/DC
    POTC
    WH20
    CFTBL
    CV
    TOM
    WOZ
    TRON
    CC
    WCS
    TBL
    Alien
    BOP
    SG
    JP
    Lexy
    SC
    Tommy
    Diner

    Bottom line is we are all secret John Pop admirers

    #82 1 year ago

    I’ll remove another from the list

    TOM. Like the layout, but once I realized high scores were all about the bonus multiplier the game got boring really fast. Modes mean almost nothing. A rework of the code could go a long ways.

    #84 1 year ago

    TOM
    Hurricane

    I dont miss either of them.

    #85 1 year ago

    RFM - it was HUO and I still hated it.

    Ehhhh.... I don’t know about all of that. Everyone dislikes a game for one reason or another. People always complain about the top 100 but it is a representation of the masses and not our individual likes. I liked twilight zone until I owned it. Doesn’t mean it’s a crap game. It just means I don’t like it. Obviously it’s a top 5 game so my opinion is the minority. Just to round it out and prove the point, I love genesis but I get why people don’t. Lol.

    #88 1 year ago

    Two words....
    Striker extreme
    Artwork is pretty awful
    Quality is questionable
    Trying to get rid of...nearly impossible

    Would I ever want another? it would have to be nearly free to be considered. Bad bad bad

    I’ve passed on several at $1000 and I’ve never played it lol. It looks so awful and I’m not a soccer fan

    #90 1 year ago
    Quoted from bladerunner:

    Most the time, I will miss a pin I sold after a while. Recently I saw a pin for sale I used to own and remembered how much I disliked it and still do. So I compiled my list of games not missed at all since we parted ways.
    MSF
    WPT
    POTO
    Ghostbusters
    Dr. Dude
    Dr Who
    The Hobbit

    Hope you don't get sick ever man, cos you really seem to hate Doctors a lot!!!!

    #91 1 year ago

    TOTAN. I owned it for a few years but never got it. Was glad to see it go.

    #92 1 year ago
    Quoted from rollinover:

    Trying to get rid of...nearly impossible

    Which raises a question. What kind of sales pitch...ahhh....presentation do you make to your prospective buyer when you are trying to unload the beast?

    Do you just shut up and cross your fingers and let your prospect talk his way into buying it?

    Do you blather on about how you are out of space?

    If you are lucky, you are the only one in the world who does not like this pin and plenty of others want to own it. TOM might be a good example here.

    If your luck ran out, you just happened to be the last buyer who did not know how crappy the pin was and you are desperately hoping for one more buyer to show up. Referred to as Greater Fool theory. Or maybe a little bit of Caveat Emptor...Buyer Beware .... Perhaps Raven could be placed here

    Do you feel relief, or guilt, after it is gone? Do we employ a little bit of Lenny Bruce and accept that "a man is as honest as he can afford to be"

    You get the idea

    This is not meant to be serious, "It's just pinball!".

    I will update the list as we go, again for fun

    #94 1 year ago

    Johnny Mnemonic-The glove drove me crazy-soooooo slow & killed the flow. One of the only games I dislike.
    SWE1- Thought it would be cool with hologram screen but decided it was a distraction and cheesy.
    Data East Star Wars-It was fun for like two weeks then it was like chopping wood.
    Rocky and Bullwinkle-Theme just did not do it for me-had to give it away to get rid of it.
    Williams Slug Fest-Novelty game that was fun for two days.
    WPT-Theme did not to it for me and never progressed significantly-got boring quick.
    AC/DC LUCI- Did not care for lower playfield and cross over ramp.
    Skateball-Loved the theme and sounds-layout got old quick.

    Games I had that I miss and might get back someday...

    Williams IJ
    Elvis
    NGG
    I500
    TZ
    JD
    BDK-just got back again

    Lots of love and hate for GB. I personally love my GB LE and it is bolted to the floor. Getting to Stay Puff with Cleland music code is great and challenging. It is a linear game and the flipper gap can be frustrating but the magnetic slings and layout are really fun. Would I own a GB if I only had 5 games-probably not. It is very unique and adds diversity to a collection. While it may not be everyone's cup of tea, I think it is one of the best games to come along in the last five years(behind TNA).

    Totally agree. I’m having fun discussing it.

    I find myself liking a lot of games that aren’t necessarily popular. For instance, right now I am loving bally special force. I can’t understand why anyone would not like it. It has a ton going for it.

    At the time I was hoping for so much when picked up but had to let go!
