Stern Indiana Jones. In part because I remember first playing it in 2008, the first time a friend and I went to the PHOF in Vegas. While I'd loved pinball for years by that point, my knowledge of it was still minuscule. Gimmicky as it was, the eight-ball Ark multiball got our attention. Fast forward to last Spring and I played it after a match in our Sunday bar league. By that point I was savvy enough about pinball to understand why people hate it — the repetition, the easy shots, etc. — but I could just get lost in it. Now it's a game that I'll play on location just to zone out, not think too hard, and maybe listen to music as I play. No. Is it challenging? Not really. Will I drop 50 cents in it nearly every time I see it? Absolutely.
The only thing I hate about it is that it acknowledges the existence of that Crystal Skull movie. Is it a ground-breaking game?
BTW, I also love the Data East Star Wars, and I don't quite see what all the hate is for Stern Star Wars, either.
