  • Is this a good Top 20 list

    I am trying to put a top 25 must have machines list together, in order of factors including looks, sound, playability, nostalgia, resale values and importantly investment, (because i dont like superannuation )
    Does anybody have any suggestions that a machine needs to be added, or removed due to major problems etc.

    Also if you have one of these that is in almost perfect condition for sale, please let me know. Dealers etc please PM me.

    The list was 20 before, but to hard to decide, even though ill be 100 before affording all these.

    Twilight Zone
    Medieval Madness
    Monster Bash
    Theatre of Magic
    Cirqus Voltaire
    Tales of the Arabian Nights
    The Addams Family/ Gold
    Attack from Mars
    Indiana Jones
    Cactus Canyon
    Star Trek: The Next Generation
    Jarrasic park
    Creature from the Black Lagoon Bally
    revenge from mars
    Funhouse
    Scared Stiff
    White Water
    The Getaway HS2
    The Shadow
    Dracula
    Roadshow
    Whirlwind
    Corvette
    safe cracker
    No good gofers (for the kids)

    if all you want is DMD's then that would be ok. you could argue around the fringes but you would be better to play as many as you can and then pick the top 20 that you like the best. plenty of ppl hate TZ and others on that list...

      As Stu said, if it is just DMD's, then the top 10 or so speak for themselves....it is the second half of the list that would come down to each individuals preference.

      CC would be higher due to collectability, and also swap TAF for a gold edition.

      I would have Corvette, JP, Dracula in there somewhere....though could change next week

        Cool, I was thinking about dropping simpsons, LOTR and spider man being newer machines, but they keep coming up on various rankings pretty high,

              A lot of people would also have GNR and a Dr Who in there as well.

                  SafeCracker needs to be on that list.

                  EDIT: Looks like you just did

                  I'd have Black Hole and Haunted House on there somewhere too.

                          Black Hole? Funhouse should be further up the top.

                              I was hoping to maximize mixing both aspects, If I have say, a Cactus it wouldnt get played to often, thats why i got things like getaway in there for parties, friend kids etc. but still are liked for investment.
