Old School Gaming

Play a Mean Pin Ball

Pinball! Truly, it has to be a lost gaming art. My primary experience with pinball was the old XP 3-D Pinball, which I was about as good at as real pinball, which is to say not very. At least it did not cost any quarters, and was a means to wile away the slow moments at work. Since pinball is still celebrated in some parts, lets watch¹ a little salute to some sweet machines from not so long ago!

1. When watching video courtesy of HycoSpeed, I should warn you that I keep my computer muted mostly all the time. I only occasionally expose my gentle ears to whatever musical accompaniment the tubes of you decide to share. Mostly I prefer to have a soundtrack to my life that is my choosing. This means that there is always a risk I am serving you up something with absolutely horrible music. Caveat audiens.

    I used to be fairly good at pinball once upon a time, on the older style machines from the 70s and earlier. I haven't been around a pinball machine in decades though.

      machines from the 70s and early are the only real good ones. (this said by someone born in '82)…
