I'm truly curious, have read a lot of posts regarding how AFM is very good. With the potential announcement of AFM remake I wanted to get a handle on why it's worth potential $8k (hope that the remake would be lower price of course).
I was curious as some people say they prefer AFM over MM (why)? I have not played a ton of either pin. I mean I have played both at times but not to the extent of owning them so that I can really say I have got beyond the novice stage.
I was curious why/how AFM would be better than Met pro or IM ( as both ) seem to have fairly simple 2 ramps, 2 orbits with various unique features. I realize there are literally a lot of similar layouts (not saying same) but similar 2 ramp 2 flipper games (IM, MM, Met, AFM etc..)
I was curious why people would say AFM is better than a more complex pin like TAF or LOTR ( or other examples) where TAF has Extra flippers, magnets, toys and LOTR has more deep rules (?) three ramps, magnet etc..
Finally if AFM is a $8K pin (?) can it stand up to a 21 year newer pin like DI for example? I know DI is just a new kid and doesn't have the cred of say the other pins I listed but as the cost (?) may be close how would a simple pin like AFM relate to a complex pin with 21st century technology?
Is it just nostalgia or does AFM 21 years old (along with various B/W pins) mark the high point of pinball?
