    Virtual Pinball will replace physical pinball in the same way that Ping Pong/Tennis/Golf/Fishing/Car Racing have been replaced by virtual versions. There are definitely fun virtual versions of all of those to play, but it will never be equivalent to doing it "for real."

    Thinking about it some more I realized the primary attraction to pinball for me is in the physical aspect of it. I've never actually enjoyed playing virtual pinball. Part of the reason is that it tries too hard to emulate physical games, when it should throw out physics, mechanical constraints, and size constraints, and use more imagination to do things impossible in real world pinball.
