Pinball is one of my most favorite games. I’m analog that way. I’ve always loved it, I always will. I could spend all day playing pinball, given the chance. I even helped restore a Superman pinball game.

There’s no magic. There’s no roleplay. The only screen, if there is one, is your score. There is flash and spectacle and clanging. I like its purity, its physics, its retro-cool…but of course to me it’s not retro, because I grew up with it.
