What games do you miss and do not miss?
« on: September 28, 2017, 11:13:04 PM »
Looking back at my Pinball machines that I have sold/traded I see some that I really miss and some that I don't.

Games I really miss:

Scared Stiff
No Good Gophers
Lord of the Rings

Games I don't miss:

Indiana Jones (Williams)
Tales from the Crypt
Big Guns
Lethal Weapon 3
Monopoly

(see my signature for games I have owned)

What games do you miss, and what games do you not care to own again?

Miss:
Fun House - Should have never let that one go.

Don't Miss:
Addams Family. I just don't like this game.
ST Pro

I've had the itch for a long time to sell my EATPM for a little while now. Really want a SS, but I thoroughly enjoy EATPM, I think it's one of the best system 11 games out there. I have a feeling if I sold it, I would instantly regret it.

Edit Spelling.

I miss Pop-A-Card. I wish the wife was into pinball when I had it. I'm sure it would have been one of her favorites.

I surprisingly miss phantom of the opera. gameplay was simple and easy to destroy for points, as most data east's of that era were...sound has not been matched since data east put this title out.

I miss BSD. I'm happy mine is 10 miles north of me after taking a Florida tour of many homes, with my dibbs beeotch card back in effect. :)

I actually wouldn't kick a night moves out of bed either.

I miss nothing else (some due purely to the build quality I owned), including:

data east simpsons - would prefer acid poured on my arms.
world cup soccer - when john popadiuk fails in design vs flow and not just money handling. see magic girl.
stern simpsons - I don't have time to read that much.
sttng - beam me out.
twilight zone - I wish this worked for me, but after 3, I know. I did make the most awesome mod for 1 ever.
theatre of magic - I think mine sucked.
Creature. yes to great colors. no because it's just a horribly ramp-covered, code lacking game.
Indiana Jones/Williams. although it was growing on me, another overvalued title.
guns & roses. irksome playfield layout.
Star Wars/Data East - kluttered.
medieval madness (note: great game, just overvalued).
disco fever - bananas don't help this thing.
time warp - see above.
space riders - too wide, too slow. can get coffee from starbucks between ball launch and drain.
tommy (complete HEP quality. clearcoated playfield and cabinet. just didn't play right and modes didn't do it for my family).
007 - again too wide, slow.
every street series gottlieb made.



 :)

we need another thread on what games/car we'll be buried in.

Had a STTNG for 2-3 years and played the snot out of it. Was crazy reliable for me. Guess I got lucky :)
