    you snap your finger and one pin from each decade ceases to exist any more. Which ones go?
    2010s:
    2000s:
    1990s:
    1980s:
    1970s:
    1960s:

    You can choose based on any reasons you want: not liking a pin, petty revenge against pinsiders, spite against pinsiders, non-petty revenge against pinsiders, being snubbed in the Top 100 ranking on pinside, you know, all the good reasons.

    my choices...
    2010s: Stern Woah Nellie
    2000s: Stern Playboy
    1990s: Sega/Stern Harley Davidson
    1980s: Williams Jokerz!
    1970s: Bally Wizard
    1960s: Gottlieb Royal Guard

    2010s: TMNT (Longer I owned it the less I liked it due to the lower half of the pf)
    2000s: Shrek (Hideous, terrible voice acting)
    1990s: TOM (Yes I own one. It will be sold/traded shortly. Beautiful, flowing layout, boring code. Total snoozefest.)
    1980s: Millionaire

    2010s - Ghostbusters - I love the artwork and callouts, but wish another playfield designer would have taken a crack at this.
    2000s - Shrek/Family Guy - I hate the layout, and just about every random place with one pinball game has one of these.
    1990s - Junkyard - Honestly it's not bad, it's just one of the Bally/Williams titles I encounter often enough in the wild and don't care for it much. I'm sure there are worse titles, but our paths don't cross often
    1980s - Jokerz. It's fine.

    I've only played 1, and besides an ACNC with no code it could be the worst pinball machine I've ever played.

    And that includes Dominoes.

    Great list

    #11 6 months ago

    60s - Gottlieb 'Skipper'
    70s - Bally 'Circus'. And it doesn't even have anything to do with the giant clown faces. Truly a 'home version' pinball in a full-size coin-op cabinet.

    Wasn’t TMNT released in 2020?

    Whoa Nellie and Wizard! ? Love both. If I ever let it be known what games I didn’t like, I’d be tarred and feathered. “Snap snap”

    2000s: SWE1 Pin2k was wasted on that one

    1990s: Hook

    1980s: GTB Rock. Worthless hunk of junk. I GC’d one by accident and walked away with 2 balls left. Awful, awful game. Possibly one of the worst. I’m amazed that such a travesty could come out of 1985 when some of the greatest games ever were made around the same time.

    1970s: WMS Fun-Fest damn, I’ve been offered that abomination too many times.

    1960s: Beat Time. Hate seeing “Beatles themed pin RARE! 5k” nonsense

    #16 6 months ago

    I have seen at least 2 people destroy a Black Pyramid machine and I had very little remorse.
    Not sure on the time frame.

    I should have gone for Cue Ball Wizard. Ugggh I can't like that game. I tried so hard to.
    I still want to play Sharkey's Shootout though.

    #22 6 months ago

    You're high.

    Quoted from Eric_S:

    2010s: Thunderbirds

    No fair. That's not even a pinball machine.

    The correct answer for the 2010s is clearly WWE.

    I wouldn't hate Woah Nellie so much if it had actually sold and instead had its parts recycled and absolutely WASTED on two gorgeous art packages, Pabst and Primus.
    Wizard is a garbage game I will hate forever.

    Upvoted for being a refreshingly original topic of discussion.

    First thread I've favorited in awhile.

    I'm gonna use up ally decades on one vote: refakes cease to exist.

    Gary hates Playboy. He's said that it's his least favorite game because it was the one game that his daughter refused to play.

    That thing got yanked from the line faster than Wheel of Fortune.

    What's the story with WOF? It's sad that one isn't around more, and the code isn't finished. (And/or the finished code isn't released...)
    But I really enjoyed WOF's general gameplay.

    Playboy has 3 pinball machines and they're all supremely lazy efforts.

    #29 6 months ago

    Stern Playboy is fun to play.
    Is it my favorite? No. But worst of the decade? Wow, not even close to it.

    I already told you, the ACNC you played at PATZ was not only early code but also suffered from low voltage and the flippers were so weak, you couldn't even make the ramps. I was there and played it! This is an awesome pin now. But it's hard and intended for seasoned players because the shots are tight.

    #31 6 months ago

    1980's - Hyperball

    I'm still thinking about the rest.

    WOF started out actually being "Who Wants to be a Millionaire", then got changed to "Survivor" before finally becoming "Wheel of Fortune".

    It's actually one of my favorite pins that I've owned. People laugh at me when I say that but the unique gameplay had me coming back for more. The voices were irritating and the code was beyond shallow (Wizard mode lights that are worthless because there is no wizard mode coded into the game).

    I told Gary Stern this a few years ago and he wrinkled up his nose, made a face and said "Nope."

    Another issue for the game was, at that time, Wheel of Fortune wasn't that huge outside of North America. Overseas sales were abysmal. At the end, Stern was blowing these out for around 3k.

    WOF and BM66 are the two games I regret selling.

    Yup. It was terrible and and i don't hold it against the title...which is why I didn't list it here

    I disagree about PBRCC, but Donny’s talents were definitely wasted on Cosmic Carnival. A blacklight Dirty Donny pin would have been an insta-buy if it hadn’t been so bad. So that’s my vote for the 2010’s.

    00’s - Wheel of Fortune (theme)
    90’s - SWE1 (the game that killed B/W)
    80’s - Vector

    I feel the same about CSI. I even gave mine a new playfield before I sold it. “Maggots” as a pinball callout is hilarious.
