personally, id' say neither. I don't like either one of them. If it's your first machine, you might not want something so complex anyway. Start off with a system 11 or something.

Quoted from Rarehero:

Douche comments are inevitable.

it's not douche at all. if it's your first machine. You don't go and buy a game like LOTR,WOZ , TSPP or Hobbit. Way to much involvement. better off starting off with a gateway game that still has a lot to offer, like addams family or something similar. Something to get you used to modes and structure on how most games play. It was logical reasoning.

Quoted from Rarehero:

You're misreading your audience. First time buyer clearly wants to buy a brand new JJP machine. His two choices are WOZ and Hobbit. If he was interested in an old game, he'd ask about old games. This is a new collector...and new collectors in 2017 buy NIB games...they're not picking up projects and old games off Craigslist like we used to. Things are different now.

that's the whole thing. new people come in and think they have to buy NIB JJP or stern. You get more fun out of something older than most of this NIB crap. They need to have more of an open mindset, instead of thinking NIB is the only way to go.

Quoted from jar155:

Buy a NIB from Stern and you have yourself a project...

JJP isn't much better. People still have problems with their games that are still trying to resolve. Node problems on WOZ are still happening for the early birds. Every manufacturer has problems. Nobody was exempt from problems. NIB doesn't mean it's not going to need work. personally a used game from a knowledgeable collector, that has been bulletproof, is usually way more dependable and plays better than a NIB.

Quoted from mountaingamer:

Nope - JJP makes a far superior product today with a better warranty. If the op goes nib, the quality difference is night and day.

guess someone didn't buy WOZ when it came out.

and you seem like a nice person other than your need to do whatever your doing here......
I guess

we have people in our league still dealing with fixes for the early runs of WOZ. Node problems still not resolved after numerous exchanges, and many other lighting issues happening. Been going on for a long time, and very frustrating for the owners.

Quoted from TheLaw:

Yes well "the females" may like JJP more, I can tell you Stern makes some looong playing games.

ain't that the truth. LOTR, TSPP, Sopranos, Playboy, 24, CSI ect...games are very long running and last forever. TSPP and LOTR are usually excluded from league due to long running times.

Quoted from Rarehero:

Most of those games have the CONTENT to back up their lengthy play. LOTR and TSPP never get boring during a long game, because there's always something new and exciting happening. Most people who buy games for their home aren't playing in leagues. They want the experience of the theme & story under the glass with depth to keep them coming back to discover more stuff. There's a reason I still love LOTR and TSPP to this day...and now, Hobbit! It's always an adventure, and the depth of these games are an amazing testament to what a programmer like Keith can do to make a finite box like pinball seem infinite!

I do enjoy a long running game as well. but I wouldn't want all my games to be long running. LOTR type games are for when you are ready to play and go on a journey. It's not the game you turn on, when you have 15 min to kill before you have to leave for the store. Or a game you fire up, when you have friends over that want to play together. It's a great alone game, when you have like an hour to kill and feel like questing.
