    So since I've never played some tables I hear talked about here, I found a copy of the Williams Pinball Hall of Fame for the Xbox 360. Obviously, playing a "virtual" table isn't a replacement for owning the real thing, but my question is, is this a good way to get a "feel" for a table in real life? All in all, if I play it on Xbox and enjoy it, would that translate into enjoying the actual table? Part of the reason I ask is I've been playing Black Knight, Taxi, and Bride of Pinbot on my iPhone and thoroughly enjoy them. Am starting to wonder if I should add them to my wish list.....

    Personally, I really like playing the Williams collection.

    I did find that although I liked plying funhouse on the wii, I didn't care for it in real life.

    Maybe I didn't give it enough of a chance.

    Either way, it's a great way to learn the rule set of a particular game that you may not get to play (or own) in the real world.

    I love playing those games on the Xbox. None are the same in real life. I like it because I am very happy with those titles playing that way. Old games that never break ; )

    Thanks! The never breaking is a nice thing. I've also discovered Black Hole which is a machine I never would have gotten to play otherwise.
