    Tough, but:
    1. Houdini - tip top player, always fun to play
    2. Tommy - love the shots and modes with the 5.0 update and the Pinsound music upgrade [awaiting the Pinsound shaker]
    3. Amazing Spider-Man - amazing art, simple but fun to play and [brag] mine is near perfect and signed by Stan Lee

    Honorable Mention - Flash Gordon

    Quoted from WackyBrakke:

    I’m confused about your pole

    I have read on Pinside a lot of people say they will not buy from JJP or Stern until they get the playfield issues fixed, so I was curious what a current poll would look like about NIB potential purchases.

    Quoted from TronGuy:

    Kozmik krooz’r
    Wacko
    Tron

    I'm with Tron Guy... all of my nostalgia surrounds arcades and so the last 3 'bolted' games are vids (Juno First, Zookeeper, and Robotron....) whereas with pinball, I have no emotional ties. RIGHT NOW, the last to go would be:

    JJP POTC
    LOTR
    TZ

    #104 1 year ago

    Considering I’ve already sold 3 games I’ve declared keepers before (FG, MET, TNA), I’ve learned there’s really no such thing as a keeper. You never know when situations are going to pop up. But right now I’d have to say...

    Iron Man
    Taxi
    Embryon

    The only game I really regret selling is that Flash Gordon tho. I’ll never find a nicer one.

    #105 1 year ago

    Top 3 is
    Metallica
    Pinball Magic
    Swords of Fury
    Runner ups are Black Hole, TFTC and Paragon. I regret selling the No Fear I had.

    FT, LotR, Metallica

    Right now my keeper games are;

    TWD
    Stars
    LOTR

    If money and space weren’t an issue, or if I could stop myself from wanting a new game, I would keep them all.

    #111 1 year ago
    #112 1 year ago

    Houdini
    Original Williams MB
    TZ or JJP POTC

    Also just got a STTNG signed by Steve Ritchie .. had no idea how fun this game was!

    #113 1 year ago

    If I had to whittle my collection down to 3 right now it would be:

    Congo
    Andromeda
    Abra Ca Dabra

    #114 1 year ago

    Funhouse - My first pin and resto
    Whirlwind - Just love the gameplay. Always one more game
    Quicksilver - My most recent acquisition, but already its stripped awaiting a full resto. Great shots, ultra fast and challenging.

    #115 1 year ago

    1.Stern kiss LE
    2. Stern Star Trek LE
    3. Tron LE

    Maiden is very close to this list.

    Quoted from JohnnyPinball007:

    1. JJPPOTCSE
    2. TWD pro
    3. Metallica prem.

    Metallica is not going anywhere yet, but it is no longer in 3rd. We have really been enjoying Oktoberfest. I know it is not for everyone, but we like how different it is.

    Updated list:
    1. JJPOTCSE
    2. TWD pro
    3. Oktoberfest

    #117 1 year ago

    MB
    TZ
    Houdini

    not sure what else. STTNG, TH and JJPPOTC are all awesome

    Updated list:
    1. JJPOTCSE
    2. TWD pro
    3. Oktoberfest

    Metallica still not going anywhere, but:
    1. Oktoberfest
    2.TWD pro
    3. JJPOTCSE

    My reasoning is the first thing when I get a new pin I just play forever to beat the preset scores, and if I had to start over again, Oktoberfest is the most fun to try to beat with all the steins and tents that do different things.

    And totally off subject, but to add variety a while back I picked up a multicade. We discovered Golden Tee on it, 18 courses, and for a while that was all we played. Now we play a hour of pinball and a couple rounds of Golden Tee and the combination has been awesome as far as improving my scores on both.

    A great pinball machine is the ultimate, but variety is good also.

    We live in good times fun wise. With all the new pins coming out all the time and everything else life is good. And actually long ago I played frisbee golf while on vacation and I loved it. Now a lot of those courses have opened up for free near me, and while I did go buy frisbees, we have still not made it to the courses yet for different reasons, and I still want to do a lot of that also.
