You are stranded on an island with 2 stern pinball machines, which 2 would you choose?

Currently my choices would be...

MET Pro
TWD Premium

I am interested in this because eventually I want to add a 2nd Stern. I owned Star Trek Pro for 6 months and didn't like it. It was fast but the code was not satisfying. I own a MET Pro now and it will never leave, unless it is to upgrade to a premium someday. I was told when I did a factory tour at Stern that their goal is to make FAST pinball machines. After owning MET Pro I understand their approach to pinball and I really like it. Slower games don't interest me as much anymore. I need the adrenaline pumping SPEED! Long ball, quest type games do not interest me as much.

GoT Pro. Second pin is not necessary when you have this pin by your side.

#14 2 years ago

STLE- I know the code is not as satisfying as some would like but I just love it.
TWDLE- just legit. Love the theme,code, dmd animations. An amazing game.

I own some other good ones but these would be the two.

MET, and TronLE would be next up

ST Premium or LE.
X-Men LE

Wow is GOT Pro really that good? I haven't had a chance to play that one yet.

For me, yes. I have GoT nearly six months and was never in the near of IT, only some times HotK. So i would say i need again some months to reach the final (so for me this is a pin with a long-time-potential not to bore me).
And after this long time they will have found me and rescued, i am not Tom Hanks.

You mean these two!

Stranded on an island I would want long game time to kill time. Lotr would be one of them

#23 2 years ago

Long ball time, huge rule set games would be a must for sure.... LOTR and TSPP. Or swim to a bigger island and have more.

#24 2 years ago

Acdc premium will never leave my collection, and you would possibly enjoy a potc also. You got tired of woz, so I wouldn't suggest tspp.

#26 2 years ago

LOTR
Tron LE

Then, I would follow my power line to find the bigger island with all the Sterns.

#28 2 years ago

Met.....Twd....only two pins I would like to have LE in ....both pros and premiums are great in these titles.....

Two Hercules since I am making a boat out of them and getting the heck off the island to go to Arcade Expo and Pin a go go! What the heck else would I do with two pinball machines I couldn't play since there is no power..

There is power. This is like the island in Lost. You can't get off the island, it won't let you leave. Pick your 2 Sterns wisely. Those Hercules pins would make a great boat though.

Sea Witch and Quicksilver

But how would you power them? They would just be art! And imagine what the weather would do to them. They would be filthy within a week!

And god forbid if a rubber breaks!

Edit: apparently there is magically power on this island.

I'd go SM and TWD.

#36 2 years ago

TWD and Aerosmith!

Quicksilver
Cheetah

No magic. This is the lost socket of Club Robinson from the other side of the island beneath the port where the Aida Clubship is docked.

P.S. Hercules is not made by Stern so it does not count as choose.

LOTR and TSPP

Both nice deep rulesets.

#41 2 years ago

That's easy

GoT pre/Le and TSPP

#42 2 years ago

TSPP and AC/DC

#43 2 years ago

Tron and Orbiter 1. I'd only play them at night and during the day I would sleep. Those two would be outstanding for all night.

Can I vote for titles coming in the next 12 months ?
