sometimes playtime is overrated.
No way, I try to make my money go a long way. I'm not going to waste it all for just 30 seconds of playtime.
Oh, I beg to differ, Bibby. Giving your pinball machine some fun from time to time isn't a bad thing, after all it's done for you.
And I'd have to say that how you spend the playtime you get is more important than the amount of playtime overall.
Size matters not.
That's what I mean. Quality over quantity when it comes to playingtime. You can spend 6 hours in an arcade and barely break a sweat, but once in awhile you get that really amazing game going with that machine at the mall and although it only lasts a few minutes, the experience is ten times better.
I suppose everyone has different methods of bouncing those balls around.
I like to go for shere impact in ball bouncing. Sure, it hurts a little, but it's worth it.
I prefer having complete control over where my balls go. Sure, you can knock 'em in at full speed and see what happens, but I prefer precision control, aiming exactly where I will score the most points.
Hey, have any of you guys ever tried two at once? It's hard banging the paddles on both the machines but once you get the hang of it its the best experience one can have. Hit this one, turn to the other, hit it. It's great fun!
Can't say I have. I think it would be too difficult to keep both going at the same time, I'd start paying too much attention to one and then the other would just make loud noises when I stopped hitting the paddles.
Whoa. What do you do? Have them both next to eachother or like, one on one side of you and the other at your back?
Well if you can position yourself well enough for maximum efficiency it gets pretty easy.
