    I'm sure Vid's right, but there will always be a bit of that counterculture thing going on, people who just don't fit in for one reason or another. I just saw that Stern is making 12K machines a year - that is way more than I thought, so even if there's a decline, I wouldn't be surprised if things still hang on. Weirder stuff has happened

    Quoted from CrazyLevi:

    You think the gang over at play Mechanix sits around asking each other "How do we get young people into Big Buck Hunter?"
    I doubt it. Cause people get old enough to drink, go to bars, find Big Buck Hunters, and realize it's fun to drunkenly shoot at video deer.
    Pinball just needs to be the same way. Keep the games good, and the doors open, and people will discover it when they get older. This is how it's been working for a long time now.
    Young people are idiots! Don't take my word for it, ask any old people and they'll agree. Trying to cater to them works for pop music and bad movies. It's never going to work again in pinball, ever.

    It doesn't even really work for pop music
