Pinball – The Greatest Game

"Ever since I was a young boy, I played the silver ball. Well, that’s not entirely true. When I was a young boy, I was busy playing coin-op arcade classics like Robocop, GunSmoke, and Rush’n Attack in the dirty game room at my local bowling alley. Pinball was relegated to the smoky bar, where toothless rednecks violently shook them, as they did their small children, in between pitchers of Pabst Blue Ribbon." - Brian Acebedo of Str N Gaming (Arcade, Culture, Farsight Studios, Industry, Zen Studios)

Loved this article! Seeing the Funhouse clown really brought back memories. I'd love to have a table like the Spider-Man 2 table but my neighbors would kill me.

pinball ownership is awesome, but as I mentioned in the article, the pinball arcade is a good alternative, and it's available on all platforms. I buy the PA tables on ps3, cause they give you the tables on the vita also. Playing Monster Bash is a great time waster when you are on the go or on the can!

This is some of Brian's best work. I learned a lot and miss pinball now.
