HOW IN THE HELL CAN YOU HATE PINBALL!!!!
quite a few reasons! first of all, i really think pinballs are damn ugly with those spider legs. seeing a row of pinballs and comparing them to a row of videogames is like comparing a dog with a cat
second, there's no variation in pinballs, all you have are those two flippers on the left and right and that's it, in video games you have joysticks, trackballs, guns, hell sometimes you even have boobs.
third, i think pinballs are too noisy and there's too much going on with all that blinking, beeping and whatever. i also think that the scoring is impossible to follow, you never know exactly where you got all those zillion points. believe me, i've tried pinballs dozens of times, but got bored and irritated quickly every single time. circus voltaire will not be different than all the others!
