Sorry, I need to revise my vote 3 years on now that Punny Factory exists.

Of modern games…
Houdini and Rob Zombie tied for worst games ever.

Quoted from CrazyLevi:

Def the worst Stern since WWE

Take the theme off Mando and it's an exceptionally mediocre game. I'd take a Venom Prem/LE over a Mando Prem/LE all day, any day as the only pin on my desert island with solar power.

There are some real stinkers in the Whitestar/SAM era, too.

Time to reactivate this thread:
Thanks to the Pinball Brothers for the horrible Queen pinball.
I was never so disappointed from a pin, expect the Alien rebuild and I am sure I come back to this thread after playing ABBA.

So we can rename the thread to "Worst pinball producer ever ever ever" on the top of the list with at least 2 titles: PB

Followed by AP for the worst quality pinball cabinets. But at least the rest is pretty good.

Quoted from PinFever:

On a 3 balls pinball game I drained so fast that I didn’t break a million on a new modern Star Wars stern. Worst pinball game of my life . But I still love the game

SW is the first pin I saw with multiple ball save time so we can drain a few times within the first 10 seconds.

I’d rather have a manly plunge and drain than a limp ass plunge like on GnR tbh.

Godfather just won the title of worst pin ever in my book. And I wanted to like it, I actually spent a whole hour playing it, but it's the worst layout I've played, and a game I'll never play again.

According to my very scientific ratings system (TM), the worst pin of all time is The Jetsons.

Unlike Thunderbirds, which is so bad it’s good, and Junkyard, which at least has one interesting toy, The Jetsons plays like it tried to be good and failed spectacularly.

Of the ones I've owned Black Hole takes that title. First 50 cent machine and the first to make you drain from a lower playfield. 10/10 for artwork though.

Backglass is kick ass

Black hole kicks ass. Yes, its exceptionally brutal, but its rules are so good, plus the game is absolutely gorgeous and sounds amazing for the era.

Spinal Tap a strong contender. To buy that license for I’d imagine a considerable amount of money then drop that pile of junk machine just made no sense

If I was offered a BBBB or Thunderbirds for only $1K each, hell only $500.00 each I wouldn't take either of them.

You're entitled to your opinion, of course. But man, so harsh. Black Hole is bolted to the floor here.

I'd say: play better. The only thing you have to do to not make that ball drain from the lower playfield is complete a set of drop targets on that amazing lower playfield.

Perfect risk/reward in my eyes, because you can gain a boatload of bonus points on that lower playfield.
