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.


What he said!  ;)

Why I don't sell much of anything!

I don't really miss anything I've sold, since if I sell it it's not really a keeper.

I wouldn't mind playing my Johnny again, for old times sake.

Glad to say that I don't truly miss any that I've sold.... no regrets.   The ones I had that I felt I got the most out of before letting them go:

Cyclone.  my first.  Straight forward. Great learners permit.
Time Machine.  not very deep.  But great lastability.... fun to thrash..

Machines that I got... just to get rid of.....  Star Wars Episode One and Harley Davidson. 

Kinda scared that I'm going to have a tough time getting rid of any of my current line up.... I really like them all in their own way.

Oh... and yes.. NGG is a flow master fun box....
Present....Countdown,TZ,BBH,WOZ ECLE, NGG...
Past. others...

The only ones I missed really badly I bought back...of those -- the ones I still have are:

BS Dracula (on 3rd one)
Creature (got my same game back, first game I ever bought!)
Twilight Zone (my 3rd one and found a sample, never selling!)

So I would say those are the biggies for me.

If I had more space I could see things like High Speed and Whirlwind coming back. I had a DP Whirlwind. Would like that back!

I would not mind Funhouse again just because it is so unique and a great layout.

The ones I missed the least...Theatre of Magic and Breakshot come to mind. Especially Theatre. That game is lame. Also did not keep Medieval Madness for very long. Felt too much like AFM which I had at the time and like better. Castle is boring after seeing it a bunch. Lots of up the middle shots, etc.

Sold some projects I wish I kept considering how hard they are to find now -- and starting to appreciate the oldies more (Centaur, Fathom).
