I post here every year, time for my annual check in. Just realized that with the exception of Dialed In, every top five game I've ever listed is history!

Present mood:

1. Quicksilver
2. Fathom
3. Indiana Jones TPA
4. Elvira HOH
5. Dialed In (never gets old!)

#605 1 year ago

current thinking is:
Met
MB
LOTR
MM
IM

#606 1 year ago

Refreshed list

1. Iron Maiden premium (still my number 1)
2. GOTG premium
3. Kiss premium
4 & 5. Not too sure?

#607 1 year ago

I'm toying around with the idea of having a horror theme:

Alice Cooper's Nightmare Castle
Phantom of the Opera
Haunted House
Bram Stoker's Dracula
Elvira (any of them)

#608 1 year ago

Whenever I try new machines at the end of my mind ... there are only 4 machines that I think would be safe in my top 5 to have at home, the other 1 would surely be rotating. I would like to have these 5 machines today.

1' walking dead pro
2' spiderman 2007
3' royal flush- maresa-
4' running horse -inder-

5' ghostbuster pro - gotg pro - or 1classic game 90's

#611 11 months ago

I think I answered this before, but this is a nice comforting thread from a more innocent time so I'll do it again:

BM66 -- great theme integration, great code
TWD premium. hard game to balance my collection, great code.
Star Trek Pro -- a super flowy Ritchie game. Star Wars almost slipped in this spot.
JP2 -- Hard Elwin game.
LOTR -- long playing adventure. The Hobbit came a close second here.

stern fanboy I guess. This list changes all the bloody time of course. I could come up with three completely different lists of five and the difference in desirability between them would be negligible.

#612 11 months ago

Stern Jurassic Park (any version, but i'm happy with my pro)
Walking Dead prem
Game of Thrones pro
Star Wars pro
X-Men LE

#613 11 months ago

Since all these games are tagged and most respondents used the tags, it would be really interesting if one of the programming types could create a data viz that showed some stuff!
- most desired machine (appears in the most top-5 lists)
- most desired from each era (em, SS, DMD, etc)
- most desired from each manufacturer (this gets a little dicey with the acquisitions over the years)
- most desired / cost to acquire ratio (which is the most desired pin that costs the least? the most?)
etc. etc.

I personally would consolidate all the trims / versions of each pin into one (le, se, etc) for simplicity...that could be a toggle...for home use games on a wish list I don't know why you would choose anything other than an LE (or whatever the highest trim is).

Someone with web dev capability please do this!

.....my top 5 at the moment
Pinbot

Monster Bash (Limited Edition)
TRON: Legacy (LE)
Jungle Queen (or really any later 4-player EM, this just happens to be the one I have)
Star Trek: The Next Generation

Another super interesting poll would be, what are your biggest upgrade priorities? (maybe that exists someplace, I haven't searched)
- leds
- LEDOCD
- pinblades
- pinsound
- colordmd
- cosmetics (toys, shooter knob, etc)
- nothing...get it to stock and keep it that way

#614 11 months ago

I own 2 but have place for 4....

JP LE - Got It.

Batman 66 - Got it.

AFM LE- will have this one day

Star Trek LE- will have this one day.

5th game will be something new this year or next...Aliens , Bond, my dream machines.

#615 11 months ago
Quoted from KozMckPinball:

MMR
NBA Fastbreak
IJ TPA
A JJP pin, currently POTC
Brian Eddy's 1st Stern Pin

still want that eddy pin?

#616 11 months ago

Now it would be the 5 right of Tee'd Off.

Whirlwind
Taxi
Lord of the Rings
Metallica Premium
Attack From Mars Remake

#619 9 months ago

My list changes pretty frequently, but here's where I'm at right now in no particular order:

1) Twilight Zone
2) Medieval Madness
3) Jurassic Park Premium
4) Indiana Jones TPA
5) Ghostbusters Premium (only with the newer code of course)

As little love as it may get, Baywatch is a close 6th as it's fun with great shots and a lot of shot variety.

#620 9 months ago
Quoted from Sammy31:

Just MM.

1. MMR
2. IJ TPA
3. Ghostbusters Premium
4. JJP POTC
5. Jurassic Park Premium

#621 9 months ago

Jurassic Park (Stern)
Elvira's House of Horrors
Medieval Madness
Adams Family
Creature from the Black Lagoon

I have somewhat limited access to the newer titles, as I live in a rural area, and there's not really anywhere to play unless you drive 100+ miles. I've chosen from my collection, so it's probably left out some very good games.

#622 9 months ago

TZ
LOTR
Rick and Morty

If $ was no object:
1. Big Bang Bar
2. Twilight Zone

2 back ups would be TZ and TAF

#632 6 months ago

Currently I would go.

1. TNA - Amazing music and lightshow. Easy to explain rules as well as co-op which is great for non pinball players.
2. MM - Classic. Everyone loves this.
3. TMNT - So far this game is incredible. Great flow, awesome light show and co-op
4. Hobbit - Incredible theme integration and depth. I miss owning this game.
5. MET - Another awesome game for new and experienced players. Fantastic toys.

#633 6 months ago

been awhile but here goes:

Iron Maiden Premium or Metallica Premium
Star Trek LE
LOTR
TMNT LE
DP LE

#634 6 months ago

Trying to figure this out now. Current:

MET
WW
RBION

Debating JP Prem and Wonka down the line. I'm a fan of TAF and GB Prem as well though. Lebowski is great but so expensive. TZ is good. As is creech

#635 6 months ago

WOF
TRON
ACDC Pro
GOTG Pro
DP Pro
runner up SMVE

#636 6 months ago

MMR Royal
Wonka CE
DICE
Beatles Diamond
WNBJM

That’s what I went down to from 14. Already started adding to the collection again. I enjoy the mix and the modern tech in the vintage themed games. Really hope some rumors are true. Would love a Back to The Future, JAWS or TZr.

#637 6 months ago

My top 5 currently:

1. TMNT - Great flow, co-op, and good Lightshow
2. TWD - Brutal, bloodpumping moments and superb Rules.
3. BM66 - theme integration ist top notch, so many ways to play the game, great code!
4. MB - Love the Humor, good flow, easy to learn and great for beginners,
5. Houdini - a great Shooter with a OK flow, but Sound, light and Fantastic toys make this one special

#638 6 months ago
Quoted from RobDutch:

Hmm good one..
I'm sure about:
1. TS
2. TZ
3. LOTR
One of these: DI TWD SM WW
And of course keep 1 place free for a project-pin

Okay I changed my mind
Since my previous comment (a year ago) I added LOTR and Indiana Jones to my collection, so now I own 4 of these already:
1. The Shadow
2. Twilight Zone
3. Lord of the Rings
4. Indiana Jones
5. Spiderman/Iron Maiden/STTNG/TWD/project-pin

I also really want a Congo but those are pretty rare, and I don't know if it stays nice for years.
It would really compliment my collection though as it is not mode based.

#639 6 months ago

For me it will have to be one from each decade
So when people come to my house the can experience the evolution on pinball

1. El Dorado
2. High Speed
3. The Shadow
4. SpiderMan
5. Jurassic Park

Just played the shadow for the 1st time today and its going on my wanted list.

#640 6 months ago

Jjppotc
MM original
Alien
Stranger Things LE or premium
Project game

I prefer pins with a large display. NST has the projector to compensate that. MM is just the best ‘90 pin.
If any company produces another winner with a large display: MM’s spot will be taken. The project pin keeps the hobby interesting. You can’t play what you can’t fix!!!!

#641 6 months ago

I've been considering scaling back and going back and forth on what to sell. I have the most fun with these five, and will also hang onto Indiana Jones TPA as well as Nine Ball. The rest are probably on borrowed time.

Game of Thrones LE
Attack From Mars
Quicksilver
Elvira's House of Horrors
The Beatles

#643 6 months ago

Lotr, afm, mb, game of thrones premium, deadpool

#644 6 months ago

Hmmmmm....I would think must have a 2,3,4,5 flipper games .Spread it out 5 different manufactures .Must have 5 completly different themes and Genres .Both standard and widebody.Finally have to have a 13 ball multi ball ....here goes 1)WOZ 2) IMDN 3)RnM 4)MB 5)Apollo 13

#645 6 months ago

DP Premium
AFMr
ACDC Luci
TWD Pro
JP Premium

Will update once I receive TMNT. Can't rate yet. Was really surprised by JP, liked it a lot. AFM used to be my fave (still my wifes), but deadpool is so good. AFM is the perfect balance though. Great game. Not an avid fan of ACDC, but still like their music and the only music pin I could stomach. Funny thing is with music pins, you don't want to be too big a fan or you would get sick of hearing the same songs over and over. ACDC is perfect rock. To us it's like having a jukebox with flippers. TWD is growing on me, like it.

Edit: why do three of them have Lyman code, hmmmmm.... Tanio did an awesome job on DP.
