So after reading through a number of threads it seems everyone has an opinion on what the next hot theme should be. It seems to me that manufacturers are currently trying to cater to the home Market and the generation with money to spend on them.(Munsters,Batman 66,Beatles ect.) Now all these are all fine titles but do they really have any staying power? Twenty years from now it's hard to imagine an up-and-coming collector clamoring to get his hands on a Munsters machine. That said, what does have Universal appeal and never goes out of style. You guessed it.... naked ladies, hell, even half naked ladies add to any games appeal. Don't believe me, look at the artwork on the Humpty Dumpty game. A timeless classic going way back based on a children's nursery rhyme yet the back glass artwork contains more scantily clad female forms then nursery rhyme characters.
So I guess my question is, is the General Public and the industry ready for an adult themed pinball machine. I personally would be first in line for an Unapologetic stripper themed pinball machine. For years pinball enthusiast have been populating their man caves with the likes of playboy, stargazer, viper ect. probably because of the artwork more than the game play. I personally think a game where goals achieved removes more articles of clothing from a dancer would be very rewarding. With what they're doing with code these days you could still have an adjustment in settings menu that allowed for family-friendly (Manson Family)gameplay. Maybe pasties or fig leaves over the fun spots for public play.
I get in this age of political correctness this is something that the manufacturers would probably never touch but as a consumer, I would love to get my hands on one. Sex sells and always will.(Humpty Dumpty) very curious to hear others thoughts and opinions on this.
