Same here! Maybe pinball will make a comeback, that would be cool!!

One time at the bowling alley I kept a game going for at least 20 minutes. The ball just stayed in play and my friends couldn't believe it. I think I racked up 15 free games. :)

^^Now that you mentioned it, I gave the YT vid you posted another look and I noticed that too! :lol: Also for a moment, my eyes played the meanest trick on me, by actually getting me to believe that the dude was wearing only a hat and tie! :ohmy: It is a bit easy to miss the fact that the man has a trench coat on! :lol: I honestly thought "Hmmm...gangster or cabaret dancer?" :lol:

I wish they would have used a gangster like this guy:

Or even this guy:

Lol! I also used to have one of these when I was just a little girl.

OK, the graphics and all that of modern video games may be better, but back then I surely enjoyed the old video games like Super Mario Bros, Castlevania and The legend of Zelda.

They were a lot of fun! :gimmefive:

:smack:

It never happened before or after. I just love those flippers. :)

I used to collect these. I had most issues from #2 and up in the late 50's and early 60's. Wish I still had them along with my 60's Avalon and Fillmore/Winterland/Fillmore West/Great Hiway and Straight Theater posters.

I used to play with this all the time. If I remember correctly I used to be pretty good at setting up different bigger and neater track layouts with different hot wheels tracks using the superchargers.

With the rise of shitty mp3 players and iphones or whatever, I'm guessing that items like these, are becoming obsolete?! :wacko:
