Inside Portland’s Competitive Pinball Scene | VICE | United States

The heat steaming off the machines, combined with Portland’s dampness, made the place feel cramped and hive-like. Ear-piercing bells and clangs and chirps, the jukebox on full blast, players laughing, cursing, a million strobing and multicolored lights.

Cut to – Everyone else saying “But, muh pinball scene is the bestest and it’s betterrer than yours!”
