  • What are some themes for original tables you'd like to see in the future?

    Hey all. Primarily a ps4 player of Pinball FX3 but recently switched over to the steam version.

    I've always been a big fan of the original tables we see in Pinball FX. In my opinion Pasha, Mars, Excalibur , Wild West Rampage, and both tables in the Carnivals and Legends pack are among the best tables Pinball FX3.

    So I was thinking...what other themes would you like to see explored?

    For one thing, I know what I want to see put on hold for a while. Any type of Medieval/Roman/Greek/Sword combat table. I do feel like those type have been thoroughly represented so it'd be nice to see future sword combat tables be put on the back burner.

    With that said, here are some original themes I'd love to see in the future:

    Horror Themes

    Considering how prevalent horror was in real pinball it's strange that the only horror themed table we've gotten is Paranormal. I'd really love to see a Monster Bash-esque tongue in cheek table. Another table I'd think would fit the bill would be a Van Helsing(not the movie branding) table where you take down multiple vampires and then finish off with Dracula.

    Cyber punk/90s Hacker Theme

    I've always loved goofier tables. I think this could be a fun one to explore and could be visually interesting. It could be paticularly popular with 80s and 90s nostalgia in full swing.

    Spy/Noir/Heist Theme

    I'm lumping these together because they feel like a no brainer and could lead to a lot of really interesting table situations. Safe Cracker is an underrated machine. As is Who Dunnit. I'd love to see Zen's interpretation of this theme.

    Casino Theme

    I may be in the minority but I think games like High Roller Casino, Jack Bot, and World Poker Tour offer a nice change of pace. It'd be nice to have a table like this to add variety to the line up.

    Pro Wrestling

    I'd love to have a tongue in cheek wrestling table. Think Capcom's Saturday Night Slam Masters.

    I think resurrecting some of the old EM themes would be interesting. Gottlieb made a boatload of games with card themes and bowling themes. i think at one time they had a slogan that they were the king of the card themed pinball games. Alas. the rules set may not be deep enough for those older themes.

      I second the spy theme, or perhaps a gangster theme. There was a game awhile ago that had a train theme table that I loved playing. Wouldn't mind seeing something like that.

          I would love to see a 90s anthro starring cartoon themed table.

            Zen, sign a deal with Netflix and :

            - Do a Stanger Things Pinball! Find missing kids challenges, unlock Eleven in a harder way to help you out collect clues, free them all by killing the Demogorgon! The Demogorgon could attack you with some powers, paralizying you ball, make it warp, etc. I could see the table looking a mix between Attack from Mars - Addams Family. I think there is a massive opportunity here!
