Top 25 Pinball Machines of All Time

This list is purely my opinion on all the pinball machines (including some great recent Stern pinball machines) that are currently out there. These are my personal favorites, there are a lot of great games in the past few years.

  1. Attack From Mars : An all time classic, this game is the perfect mix of challenge and fun.
  2. Lord of the Rings
  3. AC/DC
  4. Star Trek: The Next Generation
  5. The Simpsons Pinball Party
  6. Iron Man : Probably the best modern short ball time game.
  7. Tommy
  8. Jurassic Park
  9. Metallica
  10. The Walking Dead
  11. Medieval Madness
  12. The Shadow
  13. Indiana Jones (Williams) : A game that the idea of is better than the actual game. It has some good features but isn’t the best shooting game.
  14. Spider-Man
  15. X-Men
  16. Stargate
  17. Iron Maiden
  18. Godzilla
  19. White Water
  20. The Addams Family
  21. NBA Fast Break : Some people might be surprised to see this game this high on my list, if you’re a basketball fan this game is awesome. Most pinball fans hate sports though so most of the time this game is far down their lists.
  22. Fish Tales
  23. Funhouse
  24. Corvette : What? A car game this high? I like it because it’s challenging and features multiple ways to get to the wizard mode.
  25. Creature from the Black Lagoon
