Seems obvious that the new players prefer newer sterns. When they enter the hobby , likely they will buy what they are
used to playing.

Quoted from JoeJet:

Well, I don't know how official any of these rankings really are

Quoted from frolic:

Looking at the rest of the list, IJ4 being #2, it makes you wonder how many ops actually filled out the survey. Likely extremely small.... single digits, and maybe low single digits.. or maybe just 1. Someone should try and correlate that list with a location(s).

I guess my Seinfeld quote went over everyones head.. lol

Quoted from vid1900:

Stern never gives sales figures.
Thousands were made, no doubt.

So what you are saying is that you have zero sales figures to prove your point?

31 ops filled out the survey, 2 had a Whoa Nellie. 3 had an IJ4. You can just look at the numbers and figure it out pretty easily.

Here are the Play Meter results for Sep of 1982.

Caveman was tearing up the charts!

(and you can see the video games were making more than double the money pins were, requiring less maintenance and less floor space)

I only "know" what the employees tell me.

If you have a legitimate need for the actual sales figures, call Dave Peterson and plead your case, lol.

Bottom line- Sex sells! Big busty broads with retro gameplay is going to get attention in a bar, simple game rules make this title approachable by maybe someone who has never played pinball before. I have seen a lot of ladies enjoying this game as well.

In 1982, two of the top three were Caveman and Orbitor 1. That tells me how much stock to put in this statistic.

Again, that is what the public was putting the most money into at that point in time.....

...not what some pinheads judged to be the best playing game.

Back in the day, both Caveman and Orbitor were **WOW** games when you first saw them.

Wtf. Play meter doesn't ship to Canada. I was going to subscribe.

If they are earning money on route then I doubt the ops care weather or not the titles are popular with collectors.

We absolutely love our WNBJM! It gets played a ton at our house whenever we have groups of people over and it is by far the leading gambling game. I have to second the opinion that we have never had one issue with it other than when we first got it it had a corrupt SD card and once it was replaced everything was golden! Great game Dennis!

I just put my Whoa Nellie on location at a local arcade, mainly a pinball arcade. We'll see how it does. I'll report back.
