Which would you choose? Fish Tales or Baywatch?

Interesting that both have water in their themes...

For chirsts sakes man...

I'm sure there are a few people that would by the Baywatch you're looking at...just let it go.

Get both, sell one if/when you get tired of it

I'd say it was Rothkranz best work but probably Buschs (do to the fingers).

If you made this thread to get peoples opinion before you buy either a fish tales or baywatch then i don't understand the point of this then. Peoples opinions are differnet ; make the judgement yourself by playing them first before buying. Some may like either, neither or just one over the other it won't change what think is fun or not

However I'm going to contradict my statement and say fish tales because i own one and i'm not fan of baywatch

The next Stern, which will be amazing and cool and no QC issues

#7 7 years ago

Neither. Pick up a BSD.

#8 7 years ago

The one that is Electro-Mechanical.

#9 7 years ago

I would pick fish tales but Baywatch is a great game as well

#10 7 years ago

I appreciate all the advice..I have played FT but not Baywatch,hence the question.

#11 7 years ago

choice threads like this are pointless. Nobody can decide except you. Baywatch has a better layout and better rules but shitty them and horrible artwork.

Shit tales....well...it's shit tales.

Forgive me for these stupid questions but I am trying to educate myself.

They aren't stupid , I just don't know why you refuse to buy a Baywatch Shit man once you buy one you'll get addicted like everyone else and end up buying plenty more...so might as well pull the trigger.

FT is technically a better game, but it's much more focused. BW has "more going on" and probably more "fun" for an average player

#15 7 years ago

If they were even I would still go with FT just because I would worry about the large, expensive and hard to find DMD in BW going bad.

#16 7 years ago

Great points..I think I will take the "plunge" for Baywatch...Sorry for the pun, LOL...

Why take a poll if you're going to go with the one that loses 3 to 1?

#18 7 years ago

Get both and a Fathom and enjoy the Saltwater Trilogy.

#19 7 years ago

Just go find a Waterworld .

#20 7 years ago

I think Baywatch has the depth for me.

#21 7 years ago

it's deeper than FT, and a better layout. If you can get past the theme.
