    Go with LOTR, you won't be disappointed. Awesome theme integration and game play. The LE edition is not worth the extra $$ and looks god awful. The shaker motor can now be added to a non LE edition and is 100% worth it.

    This can not be unseen on the LE

    I love Taxi, but it's "Diner" simple.

    LOL. Taxi is a must. LOTR is more for the wife. I also don't know the game and would love to learn it.

    Same here. I've owned it for over a decade, I think and still haven't gotten the super wizard mode. Game very, very close once. Had all the elf gift collected, and two of the MB modes completed, but not the third. That was a few years ago.

    The game really represents the movies well and feels like a journey. Such a great game. Even all these years later, it is still one Sterns best games.

    And that's exactly why it's also on my short list of wants. I prefer games that are an adventure and not just a "score as much points as you can". GREAT game. GREAT theme integration. Wish I would have kept it but at the time I traded it for a TZ at the Chicago show. For me LOTR > TZ

    Deep is good for me. I like having things to chase and achieve. I just feel like those types of games keep my interest more.

    You had me until that last bit. LOL. Given you traded LOTR for TZ, maybe you meant TZ>LOTR?

    TZ, for me, is the best game ever. But that's just my opinion. I have great memories playing it on location before I understood the rules. It really felt like the game was possessed, like it came from the Twilight Zone. Throw the pull to the upper playfield. What? No flippers!? Cool. Every now and again the machine would throw the Powerball at you to really mess you up. It would stop the ball when you do a loop shot. It would taunt you when you started multi ball "Don't touch the door, don't touch the door" and the jackpot animation and sounds are heaven.

    Then the excitement of finally getting one and getting it delivered on Christmas eve before I had kids. I had the best Christmas ever that year. So TZ will always hold a special spot in my heart.

    I don't know. Seems kind of shady that someone with a nickname Twilightzone would be hyping up the game.

    Just do the right thing and buy a Black Knight: Sword of Rage!

    As we can all see Badger gets really heated over lotr.

    He's just ashamed to admit how much he loves it, especially the sound calls.

    if anyone plays t2 with him, be sure to lean over the right side of the cabinet and line up your jackpot cannon shots.... He also loves that technique.

    No. I meant what I said. LOTR > TZ.

    Times have changed. Yes I agree back when I was collecting over a decade ago the last few years of W/B games were amazing. I personally think they are showing their age now. Limited depth. "simple" rules.

    Don't get me wrong I like TZ, but not enough to have it in the lineup anymore. There are better games out there - at least for me. As I said it has to be an adventure, a journey. Give me goals, short term, long term. Make reaching the end of the game nearly impossible. Keeps me coming back. WoZ and JP are still keeping me away from the ultimate wizard modes. I like that. Never did get to Valinor when I owned LOTR but my skills have dramatically changed. It's an attainable goal now.

    Games like STTNG I can get to final frontier too easily now but the theme makes it a keeper. DW has no real point other than starting multiball and scoring Davros jackpots. Meh. RFM is just too damn easy even with the updated custom code. SWEP1 is even simpler. Those 2(3) are on the chopping block soon.

    Anyway back to the thread. GLWT search!! You can sell me the LOTR once you 're done with it! :D
