“‘Pinball is not so much “spiritual opium” as a contact sport.”

Article excerpt:

“… playing pinball involves your entire being. A good pinball player doesn’t just use the flippers but learns to nudge and shake the machine (while avoiding the dreaded “tilt”) in an effort to keep the ball in play and score more points.

As a result, pinball is not so much “spiritual opium” as a contact sport. In a word, the level of engagement is visceral.”
