The Pinball Podcast – Featured Machines by Rank 2.0

Introducing the new and more accurate TPP Featured Machine Rankings. We had several requests to rank our games, and for a long time it was a shoehorn routine (I like this more than that, so it goes here.)  Now, Jeff and Don rated all the featured games on Pinside, then took the average of their Pinside ratings to determine the overall rank.  Pinside allows the rater to determine how important various traits are to them (ie. art, sound, overall fun, etc.), so the rankings should be fairly ‘true’, based only on the opinions of two people though.

ANYWAY, here they are.  A perfect game gets a score of 10.000, and then downwards from there.  I’ve included our combined scores.
