Quoted from SuperPinball:
In response to the OP's question thats why I like John T the least.
Couldn't disagree more. Games that punish you for bad shots and make ball control a real challenge keep you coming back for more and most importantly make you a better player. JT has some of the most creative layouts ever made that still have great flow and don't punish you just for the sake of punishing you. Plus he's not bash toy happy like the rest of the design world is these days. Slimer is the only bash toy I can think of on his games. Great designer and a really great down to earth guy.
