I think I may be a terrible person, because I’ve never really seen or understood the appeal of video games about pinball. But I don’t actually like pinball to begin with, so that could explain it. For those whose hearts are not as hardened and churlish as mine, Ben Langberg has written a paean o’ praise about the NES’s finest pinball games. Cue the angels and such.

Just try Kirby’s Pinball Land for GameBoy. I also have no love for pinball itself, but this game is a lot of fun if you’re just trying to kill time. It even has a save feature so you can pick it up again mid-game.
Pinbot was a very good game, but to be honest I don’t think the flipper cutaway is all that important now that resolutions for game systems are high enough to fit the entire table on the screen at once.
Hey, what was that Capcom pinball game that was released for the Playstation 2? Was that any good?
I believe metroid prime pinball may feature the flipper cutaway mentioned in the article, but I’ve never played it, so I don’t know that for a fact.
