Ok, with the arrival of Capehorn the problem of double voting is settled
Good luck to everyone for the first game of the season: Pinball Dream.

On the other hand, I don't really want to play Nitro, I already know the game but I know is not a bad game...

Give me a good argument for Pinball Dream and I change my vote
In my opinion Pinball Dreams is timeless perfection. Perfect music, perfect graphics, perfect physics (Amiga version only, the PC conversion was a disaster).

Not an argument for it but Dreams was released 4 years earlier and was OCS so alot of A500 owners could play it. Slam tilt was AGA only.

You can't. If you change a game in your vote that is a valid choice your entire vote is rendered void. Bit surprised the guys haven't picked up on this.

I was just about to post "you cant change your vote". I check the threads a few times a day but mostly Lemon.

At least we now have the first game hopefully settled with 20mins to go.

I do not have enough experience for "timeless perfection", you're probably right.
But I find the Ignition table ugly.
Sometimes the ball has strange reactions, accelerations that are not necessary.
The design of the table seems dubious; there are places that should be easy to access and yet that is not the case.
I hope I will have fun on the other tables.

At the time of Pinball Dream, I played rather on real pinball
But actually it is not the same generation, indeed.
I can just say there have been a lot of improvements in a good way.

I just wanted to pleasure someone but ok, dura lex sed lex !

Although I like Ignition A LOT, the other tables Steel Wheel, Beat Box and Nightmare are definitely superior. You're in for a treat!

Pinball Dreams is the staple that future Pinball games would be based upon. Slam Tilt only exists and its good because Pinball Dreams came earlier.

And considering how early of a game is, it's still incredibly amazing. The first table is the less interesting, the other 3 tables are awesome.
