I've a RUN-DMD clock running in my kitchen for the last two years. Everyone that comes by marvels and my kids are still amused. But what it's really shown me is that if anything, the "basic" DMD dot clips that predated today's shockwave-flash shorts, were absolutely stunning and UNIQUE works of communication art, given what they accomplished with such limited technology.
And you know what? They were - and still are - absolutely FINE! Nobody really *needs* any more than that. From the split-second "blink and you miss it" fluff, to a well earned "wizard mode ready, take your breath cuz here it comes" clips, they convey just enough information while establishing an environment layered with snark, humor, and amusement... because you still need to keep your eye on the PINBALL itself!
Video game cinematics? Feh. Cut-scenes in video games are annoying the 3rd time through. Load screens are pacification. Pinball is the last gasp of the frenetic arcade quarter munching experience: you're there to beat the machine, not watch a movie. Information overload is a hindrance to quick, frenetic, on-point gameplay. Full screen "we need to stuff it somehow cuz it's there" animations and quadrant-sectors on JJP games are distracting and overwhelming IMO.
An LCD offers color, resolution, and crisp movement unavailable in the DMD era, and those improvements should arguably be lauded when used properly. Some games do "just enough", with the price penalty being the price of entry: if you want it, you pay for it. The animations on say, Deadpool and JP2, feel like gorgeous and natural evolutions, and really point out the debatable shame that Ghostbusters didn't get to benefit from them. But ask yourself honestly: are they really necessary, and could the games be more affordable without them?
If you answer yes and what you want is multi-minute intros and disruptive transitions and full cinematic experiences, whyTF are you playing pinball in the first place? That's not what pinball was, is, or god forbid should become. Connect a DVD drive to your JJP motherboard and watch Pirates or Wonka on your new theater cabinet, sure, knock yourself out. But you can't play a movie (and in case you forgot, Dragon's Lair was a terrible game).
