It's not really the same thing, though. Future Pinball doesn't have the constraints that you would making a real physical table (you can put chrome and gold plating on everything, but Stern can't), so the direct analogy on video would just be modern games.

As far as "the same kind of aesthetics and design", nearly the entire last decade of indie console and PC games has been "I'm going to ship awful programmer art and claim it's inspired by 8-bit systems". Sometimes it works (Super Amazing Wagon Adventure), sometimes it doesn't.
