That Hulk game is pretty crappy. I've never seen the ball get stuck so many times.
The only thing I ever bought NIB (besides Black Sabbath) was a 1986 Toyota 4x4. Everything else was used or hand me down. I can live with that, as long as the previous owner took good care and maintained the items I purchase, like the 2001 Toyota pre-runner I got several years ago with 95,000 miles on it, which I'm still drivin', and most of the pins in my collection (note- I said most).
Quoted from Magic_Mike:
A lot of the now popular B titles were mostly turds about 12~15 years ago.
Collectors couldn't afford the A titles and started to buy up the B titles.
Prices rose and now the prices of the B titles (turds) are where the A titles were back in 1998-2000.
To me, they're still turds. Popularity now distorts that.
Are we just pretending that they are now good?
Quoted from jar155:
I don't think there's any threat of that actually happening.
I'm guessing a lot of people who are new to the hobby may have never had a chance to play all of these machines back in the day, and don't know a good one from a dud. They will just go and buy whatever we make the flavor of the month on this forum.
Quoted from mg81:
liked Gladiators when I first had it. It was my first DMD pin, felt like a lot was going on. But it did not take long to just get boring. Easy to beat. I sold it after I was playing it one night with friends well past the point of being to drunk to legally drive and I was still able to slay the dragon. That was when I decided it was just to easy to be kept in my very limited space line-up.
The only thing I miss is how bullet proof that pin was, never broke, never needed adjusting.
You know you miss that shaker.
