    One of the best pinball machines ever. I played a hell of a lot of it at my local bowling alley growing up.

    I love Medieval Madness. It's one of my favorite tables.

    I just put together a PC for a friend, that plans to use it for custom tables on his Legends Video Pinball machine.
    A Black Falcon: no, computer games and video games are NOT the same thing. Video games are on consoles, computer games are on PC. The two kinds of games are different, and have significantly different design styles, distribution methods, and game genre selections. Computer gaming and console (video) gaming are NOT the same thing."

    Medieval Madness was that pinball game that if I was over at a friend's, we'd hit the local Super K-Mart at 2 or 3 AM just to drop some coins into it and play, because we just felt like doing it as we loved the game. Legendary pinball game, and sad to see the man behind the machine pass away.
