    Only Pro Pinball in that list isn't on the PS3. The PS3 version of TPA supposedly has bugs but I never seem to encounter any. Are you really getting lots of Zen Pinball glitches? I never seem to see any either so I dunno.

    BTW TC, your thread is specifically asking if we play any other games besides Zen Pinball(2) so is there any reason why you put down ZP(2) in the poll? Putting ZP2 in the poll will just skew the results since it is the official ZP forum and therefore everyone's favourite pinball game by default (except for me). It's like going to a 3DS forum and asking people there if they like the 3DS or the Vita more. The majority of people will say the 3DS.

    Thats what multiplayer on the PSN is for! Just join in, and have a bunch of quick games, where, if you lose your ball, you don't turn into the Hulk because you just wasted 4 hours of playing, only to come up short on your all time high score I usually only play online, but since ZP2 came out, I put up a bunch of high scores just to get the 'pro-score' into the top 10. I will be going to back to mostly online shortly, and had a few games last night. the only problem is that when newbies are at the table, I either get booted or everyone leaves.

    I'm always up for trying out new pinball games, but they have to be really good to keep me playing them constantly. Zen Pinball has definitely managed to do that more than any other pinball game. I like Nintendo's pinball games (Kirby, Mario, Metroid), but since they're structured more like actual video games there's not much to do once you beat them. I tried the Pinball Hall of Fame: The Williams Collection, and while the tables were alright I didn't really like the format of the game (the whole arcade setup, having to get credits and everything). The only other game I played almost as much as ZP is Pinball Heroes on PSP. They had some really good tables that were a lot of fun to play, so I hope they bring that series back one day.

    I haven't really played much real pinball, but I'd be willing to if it was easier to find. I played a real pinball machine at a bowling alley well over ten years ago (so unfortunately I don't remember what it was, especially since I wasn't really into pinball back then), but I don't think I've even seen one since then.

    Yeah great job to those that did the work to recreate these but the scrolling is annoying as heck. Hard to get used to. It's fun and all. I'll have to look into family Guy, Iron Man and Batman those are fun tables in real life.

    I was fond of Visual pinball 5 years ago, but since a year, I really prefer Future pinball.

    Table (re)creators have made so much progress ...

    To fit with their respective themes, Zen would need to create a physical table, then they could each put it in their respective game. Zen because they created it, Farsight because they'd be recreating the actual table.

    That'd be worth it just for the factor. Heh.

    Pro pinball was great. If you have a pc, you can download a free copy of Big Race USA on their kickstarter page.
    It's more realistic but it's still way too floaty. like i mentioned certain talbes have it spot on. Tables like Funhouse, Bride are really good. Loved Medieval Madness but don't care for the TPA version. I don't recall the real table having the ball pop out of the moat and trickle down the left orbit and while I have my left flipper up it bounces all the way up past the left slingshot and then head to the left outlanes. I can understand a strong shot around the right orbit doing that but not from a soft roll down the left orbit. Some of the newer DLC tables are getting better.

    Thanks for info on the download. I downloaded and I pretty much stand to what I mentioned earlier. Pro pinball's physics are really good. If Zen and TPA had pro's physics, then we would be in pinball heaven.

    Pinball Arcade is great, especially on the Vita! Here are some my highly recommended tables to get:
    Medieval Madness,Theatre of Magic,Tales of Arabian Nights,Bride of Pin-Bot.

    These are all some of the best table worth playing on PA!

    I agree with Maink The physics in Pinball arcade in most of the tables are way too floaty. Just got Creature and Black Knight tonight and it really feels like it's a step down. Funhouse and Bride are pretty close but the other tables the balls are way to floaty. Played some real tables today and the ball physics are off IMO. Although pretty good it's not my cup of tea. on the reverse side Zen's physics has too much weight IMO so somewhere in the middle would be great.


    I didn't vote on the poll. Of course I would pick Zen 2. I do like playing the old classic tables but the physics seem off to me.

    I recently tried some tables on Pinball Arcade for IOS and didn't care for them despite being a fan of the original real tables (Funhouse, Bride of Pinbot). Zen is all I need, but I wish they'd release tables on a quicker basis.
