    In a response to the Top Arcade games you would like. name your top 3 pinball machines

    1. New Simpsons machine
    2. Pinbot
    3. Terminator 2

    so sad that you don't see any machines around much now, We had a Jolly Green Giant one when I was a kid and I've convinced my wife to let me get a machine for our game room within the next year :)

    I have the first Gottlieb Super Mario machine. I'm on the look out for a decent priced Star Trek TNG or Roadshow. The new Family Guy table is fun but most recent machines in the new smaller size I have found to be shit

    Maaaan, I haven't seen a pinball table around here in years. Even the band practice rooms I used to use got rid of theirs.

    My favourites were
    1. Twighlight Zone
    2. Creature from the Black Lagoon
    3. Addams Family

    This is just from limited local experience and a few I played on family holidays as a kid, so I didn't get the chance to play that many.

    Baby Pac-Man (Bally/Midway 1982) Yes it was in my Arcade Game list too but it applies here too.

    [​IMG]

    Orbitor 1 (Stern 1982)
    Rotating target bumpers add spin in addition to bounce, making the physics of the curved (CONCAVE!) playfield a pain in the ass to play and a LOT of fun. (Only 889 made)

    and Finally

    [​IMG]

    Big Bang Bar (Capcom 1995-96)

    In development but never made (14 known to exist, I have played one)

    I played The Twilight Zone table wayyy back in High School.
    I suck at pinball, but that table was gorgeous and I would drop serious dime on one for a game room.
    would unplug it before i went to bed, though. (the artwork was as creepy as it was beautiful.)

    never really played enough to have a top 3.
