To those of you fellow wizards out there, do the names Black hole, Theater of Magic, Gorgar, Earth Shaker, Maverick, Space Station, and Funhouse "ring some bells"?
Do you miss the scent of hot solenoids as your pointer fingers start to burn?
Do companies like Williams, Baily, Data East, and Stern being back fond memories of the arcade?
What would you do to beat around a metal bearing all day again?
Save Pinball.... buy a machine!
Well, none of you know this about me, my father and I are total pinball geeks... and collectors. We currently only have one machine... one of 724 of its kind left, called Laser Ball, Williams, circa 1979. Pinball, is a staple of gaming. Without pinball, there would be no modern video games. For without Pinball, there would be no arcade.
So.. that's what this thread is about, Pinball. No video Pinball either.... REAL pinball.
