    Long ago I started ranking my games so if/when I wanted something new I already knew exactly which game I was going to sell. The bottom of my list changes sometimes with which game I would part with next. But my top 3 I would never part with has not changed in 5 months now:
    1. JJPPOTCSE
    2. TWD pro
    3. Metallica prem.

    What is your top 3?

    #2 61 days ago

    The Shadow
    Evel Knievel
    Attack from mars

    #3 61 days ago

    Stern Star Trek
    TX Sector
    Skateball

    #4 61 days ago

    I only have 2, so those and the next one.

    #5 61 days ago

    My TZ is pretty much it. I would like to say my PM as well but you never know.

    #6 61 days ago

    Hobbit
    STTNG
    Congo

    Though 2 of those are due to weight.

    When I can finally afford a Walking Dead it’ll be a keeper. Loved that game. Recently my local beer garden decided to remove the pin and replace it with god damn VIRTUAL CORN HOLE of all things. Haven’t been back since.

    Bet no one saw that coming!

    #9 61 days ago

    Only 2 :AFM LE and Woz RR

    Lots of other keepers like TNA, Tron, TWD, Metallica but they could be sold unlikely.

    If I needed to make it 3 would be Tron.

    #10 61 days ago

    What in God’s name?

    #11 61 days ago

    Big Hurt will never leave and would be the only pin I'd own should I ever sell the rest.

    #12 61 days ago

    1. MM
    2. TZ
    3. ToM

    Apparently I'm a traditionalist

    #13 61 days ago

    Iron Maiden
    Sinbad
    Volley, which is not only the first pin I can recall playing as a kid, but I tracked down THAT EXACT MACHINE.

    Quoted from PoMC:

    I take it then that having to sell it would really Hurt you?

    .
    As for my top three keepers? A while back I would have said AFM + MB + BBB because they would have been hard to replace. But they've remade AFM and MB already, and the bastards will probably remake BBB too. So now my top 3 would be games I figure they won't remake: CFTBL + IJ + TZ.

    #15 61 days ago

    1. TRON
    2. WH20
    3. Stargate

    Maiden, Quick Draw, and Centaur are also bolted to the floor.

    That's a Frank comment.

    I won’t derail this thread... but it is a true abomination. Not to mention, 10 feet away they have actual corn hole in the courtyard...

    #20 61 days ago

    I’d like to think tron and met but I’ve said that about other games in the past and they are now gone so maybe none.

    #21 61 days ago

    If I really had to pick

    1. JJP Pirates LE
    2. WOZ ECLE
    3. Ghostbusters Premium

    #22 61 days ago
    Quoted from PoMC:

    Big Hurt will never leave

    I am that way about POTC. Friends think I am only joking when I say I plan to be buried in it when I die.

    #23 61 days ago
    Quoted from InfiniteLives:

    april fools is still a ways off bro

    Nah, it’s a fun game. I love baseball and this game has some great pinball features that you just don’t see in today’s $5000+ games.

    Plus it’s the least expensive pin I have, which is a bonus. Sell all the others and still have a pin I really enjoy.

    #24 61 days ago
    Quoted from PanzerFreak:

    1. JJP Pirates LE
    2. WOZ ECLE
    3. Ghostbusters Premium

    Holy cow, two of these are on my all-time bonfire list. No offense, it's just funny how different tastes can be. It takes all kinds.

    #25 61 days ago

    Ok....Metallica and Kiss LE are bolted, and my Bally Kiss. That’s my 3. But when the time is right I will get a MM/MMR and it will probably never leave.

    #26 61 days ago

    1. Hot Tip EM (never!)
    2. Target Alpha
    3. Grand Prix

    #27 61 days ago

    Alien, totan and CV.

    #29 61 days ago

    GoT
    TWD
    MET

    #30 61 days ago

    As of today, I'd put my three keepers at:

    Mata Hari
    El Dorado (EM)
    Houdini

    When I find a decent 2001 it'll probably take one of the above spots. Of course this is a list for today and will undoubtedly change by next week...

    #31 61 days ago

    Whirlwind, BSD, Taxi. Probably in that order of love.

    #32 61 days ago

    Hobbit (I won't let it go)
    WOZ (wife won't let it go)
    JJPOTC (kids won't let it go)

    #33 61 days ago

    Whirlwind...mine is with new everything and I will never find another.
    Twilight zone...nice original side art and good playfield.
    Finally, if it ever gets made, addams family. Might even spend extra for a le

    #34 61 days ago

    1 The Lost World Jurassic Park
    2 Iron Maiden
    3 X-Files.

    Sinbad
    Volley, which is not only the first pin I can recall playing as a kid, but I tracked down THAT EXACT MACHINE.

    I wouldn't know how to identify it, but somewhere out there is the Black Knight I poured quarters into at the 7-11. Would love to have that same one.

    Good choice. Maiden premium, sinbad, and met for me, although elvira 3 might nudge it's way in

    #39 61 days ago

    My list is gonna be unpopular but if I based it off my current collection, some of which I really haven’t finished restoring to properly play, it would be:

    •Baby Pac-Man - I have the original floor model from the original Fun Spot they bought NIB back in ‘82 and documentation to prove it. I think that’s awesome. When I cleaned it out it also had quite a few Fun Spot tokens from the 80’s so you could tell every year they took it out of rotation (probably because it broke down so much)

    •Orbitor 1 - I’ve spent too much time fooling around with this game to possibly sell it

    Torpedo Alley - one of the very first games I wanted when I joined the hobby and finally got one after 3 years.

    Only game that could bump TA off the list would be TWD premium, with the Slayer mod.

    #40 61 days ago

    My all time keepers and grail games bolted to the floor:
    TAFG, IJ & MB (and once I find a cq TZ, I’ll likely have 4 which will never leave).
    Each of these are mint cleared examples which also seem to get the most playtime in my games room.

    #41 61 days ago

    Tough but I would say the 3 JJP pins I own.

    No plans to ever selling Woz, TH, and DI. In my eyes all different and all awesome.

    Probably wouldn't stop at 3 also AFMr, IM and SM
    Staying for the long haul.

    #42 61 days ago

    Long before I joined Pinside I enjoyed looking at the top 100 and reading the comments about the games I thought I was interested in purchasing. I always wondered about last ability, and that is why I wanted to start this. I know what I will never part with, and wanted to see what others like, so if I see one in the wild I can try it myself.

    #43 61 days ago

    I only have 6, but out of those, TAF and TNA would be the last two to go.

    #44 61 days ago

    Difficult to let go of ones I have strong memories of playing as a kid, plus there's not a lot of money in those, so why sell anyway.

    Interflip Dragon - got a NOS one out of the Time Travel Warehouse
    Black Knight

    The third one might be the only NIB I'll ever buy the way things have been going, ha

    Stern Star Trek Premium

    #45 61 days ago

    1 woz 75th 2. attack from mars le 3 octoberfest

    #46 61 days ago

    For me it’s Cyclone because I played it in college and specifically chose it for my first ever home pin. AFMr LE my first NIB and my favorite pin and IM Pro because it’s just such a blast to play and I am a multiball fanboy.

    #47 61 days ago

    I only have 3 so far and one of them is bolted down: TNA

    #48 61 days ago

    wipinball TNA is a unique, simple and awesome game to play. Crazy fun.
