So - after my successful (hahahahaha) or potentially (more than likely) lacking last thread another one I was thinking this would make a great poll and again - hopefully a good, positive debate.

In your opinion, what is the most important innovation in pinball of those listed above? Please vote and explain your answer - always good to get some other views. I will post my reply below :)

For me it has to be ramps - the importance of ramps and bringing control back to the game after making shots cannot be understated - it is so important for me to a game. Without the invention of ramps I think any other invention by comparison wouldn't matter as there would be so little control in the game, it would be incredibly hard - look at EM's - lovely games sure, incredibly short ball time, modes and code would be blinking hard without ramps...

More seriously this is the second poll you've made that I just don't know how to answer lol. A game is a sum of it's parts, it needs to have more then one thing going for it to make it fun to play. All of the options you've listed above can add a lot to game, the real innovation is the way they are used imo. A game can have all of the features above and still be pants.
