Pinball FX

by Tony Ingrassia

If you’re a “Mature” gamer (and I’m not talking about mentality here, I’m talking age), you’ve had the pleasure to watch gaming in general evolve into what we see today and if you really take the time to look, it’s really been an amazing road. I know a lot of people look to games like Pong as the forefront of what we consider gaming today, but I would beg to differ. while Pong may have introduced gaming to screens, Pinball actually introduced the micro-processor to gaming.

When I was younger, you could not set foot in any establishment that sold anything that didn’t have a pinball machine. They were, at one time, the best money makers a business owner could get his hands on; most times making the initial purchase investment back in a few weeks. I don’t want to go too far back to the wooden tables and cues, but what we all know as a pinball machine.

A themed table with lots of flashing lights, crazy sound effects and steel balls……no comment. Before video game arcades there were pinball arcades, and they gobbled up just as many quarters, if not more than any video games ever did.
