Isn't it basically the same game on any machine, except there's a different decal and maybe some other gay spiral shit lifted to spit out your ball and get you more pointless... points? I never understood the fascination with pinball, or how people can get so into it.

I am thoroughly ashamed that that the pinball game on XBL is one of my most-played games on the 360.

There is no rational explanation for it.

Probably has something to do with my unhealthy obsession with the past.

Well, the same could be said of basically anything.

Anybody ever said, "Every guitar is the same" to you? Bet it got under your skin, yeah?

Pinball is fun. I'm not that into it, but I see how you could be.

Isn't it basically the same game, except there's different gay characters to beat more opposing....opponents?

Well then... :lolz:

So, there's no difference between a First Act you see at Toys R Us and a Gretsch?

I don't know, so I guess I'm actually asking. I know that the price of the latter is astronomical, basically no matter what model you get.

There is a difference: the price.

I've got to admit that nearly across the board, every guitar player I've ever met is a real douche about guitars. I guess I assumed they were all like that.

The problem with pinball (aside from the wicked upkeep and specific knowhow) is that I'd only ever want to own just one machine, whereas with arcades, from whatever era, there's a ton I'd love to own.

I love pinball, but I can't really explain it. Either you dig it or you don't, but there are plenty of worthless pinball machines out there too. Creature from the Black Lagoon FTW! It's got a 3D hologram for crying out loud. :buttrock:

I love pinball.

I think you have to be just the right age to get it, though.

I am not a huge fan of pinball. I use to own Baby Pacman though and that was pretty cool, since it combined pinball with pac man. However, if it is a choice between pinball and a video game, it would be pretty much any decent video game.
