    Got into a discussion the other day on all the machines coming out as well as one-off re-themes like Godzilla and Buffy and we ended up on the topic of machines that definitely don't need to exist. The Big Lebowski came up - heh. In no particular order, here were our top picks for tables that no manufacturer or boutique shop should attempt:

    Mime: The Pinball
    - Completely silent and stark black & white with no display or meaningful instruction, just vague gestures.

    Simon & Garfunkel
    - I suppose Mrs. Robinson mode would be interesting. The mellowest of all pins. Set that up next to your Metallica.

    The Fault in Our Stars
    - Just… egah. This IP has no place in an arcade. Runner up The Notebook.

    Airport Security Screening
    - 50-ball machine where you just lock balls into a conveyor one at a time and the last one goes through an elaborate toy. Timed play like Goin’ Nuts, but slower and no way to add more time. Yeah, Gottlieb did do Airport. At least that's got a plane on it.

    Of course, all of these could still have something-approaching-fun theme integration and probably could work in some fashion. They just don't need to be done.

    What machine(s) **that don't already exist and haven't been announced** do you hope you never see and why? Please exclude any inflammatory themes or anything that would otherwise bend or breach the community rules.

    Céline Dion,, For the Win. You will have guys spearing the speakers with pool cues if it was on location.

    And that would be the worst pinball never made?

    #8 5 years ago

    Pins based on reality TV shows or celebrities in those shows.

    Can you imagine the unintelligible call-outs on a "honey boo-boo" pin?

    You won't want to play that on route

    The playfield layout that just keeps on giving.

    #11 5 years ago

    The word "worst" and pinball are too words not often used together, but if I had to vote id say the Rice Crispy table is on the lower end.

    Wes is apparently doing this instead of Gremlins.

    Checkout the link. They made a few for a GMA broadcast. It's a re-themed Family Guy.

    Quite to the contrary. I think that one is HEAVILY routed already.

    I'm thinking that group of aliens off of Deep Space 9, could be a terrible pin.

    Ideally, "Mime" would have no ball, flippers, or even cabinet buttons; you'd just act out your game.

    Elmo the voice alone would make me want to kill it!

    Grover could be cool, however.

    Telletubbies repeating over and over and brainless twits!

    For me a pin based on a rap band would be awful.

    I'll be realistic and choose themes that I can imagine actually happening. It's more frightening this way.

    Man of Steel or any super hero theme (please Stern, no more)
    Harry Potter or any kiddy adventure theme (please JJP)
    Led Zeppelin or any long-haired rock band theme (Stern, ...please)

    And yes I'm quite aware that some of you are fans of this tired stuff.

    Oh, and I really don't like videogame themes, those are the worst, please no Angry Birds.

    #48 5 years ago

    Can't say what the worst that was never made since you havn't played it.

    Just as asinine as the ones that think they can tell how good a game is when they see the promo video or pictures. Even the worst theme could be a great playing game. Just like we have seen 100's of times where a great theme is a dog shit playing game.

    Please Stern, more super hero themes.

    Tired themes include hairbands and dead franchises.

    This. Please no more super heroes, dad rock, or redneck themes.
