    Quoted from CaptainNeo:

    well no wonder you don't think a game can be a 1 rating. Your already at the bottom of the DMD barrel.

    Well I don't own a TRS, which still isn't a 1 but pretty close

    Yes Virginia, there are crappy pins built. To rate a 1 it would have to continue to eat your dollar bills. Then laugh at you in attraction mode.

    That one is pretty close down there too. Don't know if it's in SF2 and Xfiles territory, but Mick is dipping his feet in the same water for sure.
