I never cared for pinball... until I played Medieval Madness. I realize the issue now was the game, not the format.

I've since gone to a pinball convention, and confirmed... yep.. it's the games. Some are just awesome kick-ass fun, but the vast majority... not so much. The novelty of the ball banging around for a bit until it drains rubs off right quick, unless the game is really well designed and engaging. There are few that are. MM is one of them, as is Twilight Zone, Addams Family, and a hand full of others. Some are just god-awful, and could only have been "entertaining" back when there was nothing to compare it to, or compete with it.

One of the worst I remember from the convention... World Poker Tour. Holy shit. It would capture the ball, and hold on to it for eternity for god knows why. Did it forget that I was in the middle of a game. Enough with the eternal audio bites, I want to play with the damn ball!
