What happened to the round one poll and results? I missed this.
Thunderbirds and Full Throttle were both designed to be 'mainstream' games, so it's only fair they get scrutinised (I'm probably the only person here kinda likes TB for doing things in a quirky and different way).
Mafia isn't though. It was an error in hindsight the way Team Pinball presented it, but if you're having a go at a game made by a team of four on a tiny budget as an experiment with an expected hand-made run of ten, you'd have to include most homebrews as well.
Punny Factory isn't mainstream either, same reasons as Domino's. It's a contract game, we made it according to PA's brief, TP aren't trying to sell it and it exists mainly to promote PA's brand. Doubtful that any PA games would ever fall under the 'mainstream' category.
None of which invalidates anyone's opinions though. If you hate 'em, you hate 'em, and tough luck if you do.
