Old list.

Quoted from dzoomer:

TWD LE/Prem - a highlight pin for me. A really great theme and challenging pin, short to variable ball times, amazing layout/play/dots/lightshow, immersive plus very deep software from the best in the business. A one-more-play pin more than any other to me.
POTC - own and enjoy this pin as my most recent acquisition (much much better than I was expecting). A big change from TWD and variety is very welcome. Newer gen so lots of depth with multiple cool toys (and one of the top two toys in pinball imo), easier, longer ball times, great theme.
LOTR - another slower playing deep code long journey pin. Proven awesomeness. Really like the theme.
MET - Variety is the name of the game in a collection for me. Another fast, hard and quick game play pin, with great depth, rules and sparky show.
MM (R) - an older pin design that hit it out of the park with game play, toys, good theme, etc. Hate the execution from CGC/PPS. So much goodwill burned to the ground.
Honorable mentions.
SW EP7 - Awesome theme for me and will be LCD. Could be a king maker with the right design and programmer. Need a year or two to flesh out and see.
WOZ/TH - Love the depth and new generation pin design. With 5 games total 3 will be fast as I like fast games more, so one of these is #6, and that could move up over time and replace LOTR.
GB - Love the fast play and toys, not so much the linear software encoding and theme is old. Need time for software to flesh out more and to play more significantly. I like the Prem/LE from what I see.
Happy to see all the TWD recognition in this thread (and surprised). Such a bum rap from certain people early on that has perpetuated insignificant issues and myths. TWD isn't for everyone, but even now it is a notably underrated game. It basically is the playfield/software successor to MET (as described by borg and lyman) which is an amazing pin.
I have found I like modern pins. In my experience pins have definitely improved over the years for me. Love the depth and design of the new stuff. I expect it to continue.
Still, it's a big pinball world and I need to try more and value variety. I am interested in BSD, IJ, IM, SM, Taxi, etc and they (plus the honorable mentions) may hit the sweet spot and bump lower games in my top 5, as variety is the spice of life.
Cheers to all and play games.

Many people switching up their list in such a short time. Not me. Still dig the list above. Shortly expecting a nib MMR LE. Instead, I'm getting closer to obtaining my list.

MET was #2 on my pick-up list, now #1. Decided to get MMR first since production is ending, while MET will continue to be made for a while.

Indiana Jones (The Pinball Adventure)
White Water
Tales of Arabian Nights
Medieval Madness

#308 2 years ago

Seeing how I only own 1 (my first - a Getaway), I would say just about any 4 others. If I had my choosing, however, here is what currently interests me:

- My Getaway, of course (your first is always special)
- Tron
- Indiana Jones
- Apollo 13
- The Shadow

#310 2 years ago

I happen to keep 5 from my collection close by and ready-to-play, rather than having to go down to the games room:

Safe Cracker
ST Premium
Mystery Castle
Lord of the Rings
X Files

#311 2 years ago

TWD Premium
Guns and Roses
Monster Bash
M. Madness
Twilight Zone

#312 2 years ago

I'm pretty happy with the lineup I have set up now

-GB
-LOTR
-WoZ
-WH20
-TOM

In the future, I might trade our ToM for something, but overall it's keeping my attention

#313 2 years ago

I have my 5 now
MM
SC
TZ
CV
IJ
I actually also have MB & SS but those are the first to go.
Sold TOM, TOTAN, STTNG, TAF Wouldn't have but lost interest in pinball and wanted the room.

#314 2 years ago

XMLE (Magneto)
ST TNG
STLE
Midevil Madness

May be, one of each technology/generation (mainly from Gottlieb ) :

#318 1 year ago

I don't actually own any machines per se, as all the pinball I play is on PC (Pinball Arcade). But to answer your question as best I can my 5 would be:

Medieval Madness
Scared Stiff
TX-Sector
Black Rose
Xenon

#319 1 year ago

GTLB 1970's EMs:

Pop A Card
Pro Pool
Capt Card
Luck Hand
Joker Poker

I like and I'm fascinated by some SS PBs but too many lights and noise to add to my only five. I would seriously consider giving one up though for GTLB "Black Hole."

#322 1 year ago

OK now a year later - out of my current lineup - my 5 would be (conceptually):
permanent members:
Tron
ST Premium
TF LE
IM
longer term games that could possibly rotate out at some point:
AC/DC Prem - or - Met Monsters Prem - or - AS LE
LOTR LE - or - SW LE

#323 1 year ago

This is tough,

LOTR
TSSP
TZ
MM
DI

But so many other games that are so close too!

Walking Dead Premium
Guns and Roses
Rocky and Bullwinkle

If I could only have 5 in my collection, I would go insane.

#329 1 year ago

TZ
AFM
WCS94
LOTR
Dialed In

#330 1 year ago

World Cup Soccer 94
Metallica
Theatre of magic
Star Trek (Premium) cause it's pretty or
•Game of Thrones cause its awesome
The Walking Dead

Sorry

I can't do it
I'd rather own none
With access to lots
Than own five and be stuck on five

#332 1 year ago

Well currently my five are:

Alien
Aerosmith LE
Tron (Pro - Moddified to high heaven
Ghostbusters Premium
Dialed In LE.

Plans for 3-5 more.

#333 1 year ago

Dialed In
AC/DC
The Shadow
Star Trek
Phantom of the Opera (It's a nostalgia thing)

#334 1 year ago

In my opinion the two best pins are AC/DC PREM and GB PREM. You can do LEs of those but at least premiums. Those are the pins I never get tired of. The only pins I never get tired of.

#335 1 year ago

I always figure is I can fit 5 games in the room, then I can squeeze 6

#336 1 year ago

ok so now mine would be:
Met Monsters
ACDC prem
AS LE - or - IM
LOTR
ST Prem

#338 1 year ago

Scared Stiff
Medieval Madness
Attack From Mars
Ghost Busters
AC/DC

#339 1 year ago

This topic was meant to be a collection of 5, of an ideal collection, not just from pins you own. I've updated the title to prevent confusion

Quoted from jonesjb:

Maybe some people are like me and already own all of their favorite pins, so their ideal collection is picking their own five best?
