TWD LE/Prem - a/the 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.

Old list.

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.
