Indiana vs Elvira... If you had to choose one which would you pick and why??
Don't do it, then. You'll miss your Indy...especially when the new movie comes out in a couple years.
I love my Scared Stiff, one of the best themed pins of all time. Super fun to have and play. But ... the gameplay definitely isn't deep. So it depends on the kind of player/collector you are.
Since I see you have 20 pins I think you'd be totally safe in that regard, it's not something I'd recommend to someone with 3 pins though.
Definitely make sure you get the ColorDMD if you get it.
I am a pretty average player and SS is one of the few games that I can normally "beat" on location...IJ kicks my butt everytime....so I would stay with IJ. Also, I am noticing that A title () games are getting harder to come by and their condition is only going to get worse and the price higher. So I personally would not want to get rid of any A title unless I was comfortable to possibly never have it again...imo
While I enjoy the pyrotechnics and sounds in Scared Stiff I feel the game is very shallow with not much to do besides going for the Spider Wheel and Monster Multiball.
Indiana Jones WMS is a bit tougher for new players to get into but when you play it enough it becomes a fun game with lots of features to complete.
Really? I can't think of a much easier one haha. I love the look of SS, but it's so simple. IJ is so perfect to me, one of the few great themes where the machine itself wasn't a complete bomb (cough... Star Wars cough).
I agree with the majority. For me, IJ is the greatest pin ever built - great callouts, awesome dots, tons of cool mods, color DMD, fun video modes, upper playfield, a fantastic theme...I could go on. Oh yeah, and IJ boasts what I think is the greatest custom callout ever: John Rhys-Davies' Suuuuuuuper Jaaaaaaackpot! I could listen to that all day. Now I wanna play Indy!
IJ game play is much deeper and harder to complete all the modes than SS. I had a PERFECT restored SS back in '04 and sold it since it was just too easy. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE the theme and call outs etc....it was done perfectly, but it is just too damn easy to get to the stiff o meter. Granted I never finished the spider wheel which is much harder to do, but overall it's just not a pin that I could keep with only four back then. I would like to have another one, but not for the money they are going for....just isn't worth that. That being said, I had two Indy's. I sold the first back in '02 and missed it so I bought another one in '04 and restored it. I loved it but started to not play it much any more and ended up selling it to pay for granite in the kitchen for the wife. Do I miss it.....sometimes, but even when I am at other peoples houses with an Indy, I don't really feel like I HAVE to play it. I think I'm just really burnt out on all the "A" titles out there. Anyway....with a gun to my head....definitely IJ over SS.
There still talking about that??? I remember reading that years ago on the Indiana Jones website.
We'll see what comes first... This or the sequel to Tron Legacy.
Stop hoarding all the pins in the region! You are starting to make dantebean mad. And you do not want to get on his list.
