When I was young, I was blessed and cursed with a mean game of pinball. It was a blessing because I could waste an hour on a quarter. It was a curse because I could waste an hour on a quarter. I could have learned computer programming. And I spent many afternoons in the company of Rudy from the 1990 Williams game Funhouse, which was a horrible thing to do, because Rudy is insane.
I bring all this up because I would play the crap out of Meme Ball, the meme pinball game. What’s a meme pinball game? You might have to sit down: Imagine all the memes put into a pinball game. That’s Meme Ball.
But why Meme Ball? you might ask. Well, it appears that it was simply a thing to do. According to the A.V. Club, British game room retailer Liberty Games converted a 1975 Segasa Baby Doll pinball game into Meme Ball, asking itself, “What is every office (well, every office of an ecommerce games room retailer) missing?”
A meme pinball game, that’s what.
Doge is a huge presence in the game, garning choice locations on the machine and the playfield. Take a look:
There’s also that doggie chap under the start button and the one on the side:
Don’t you want to play that?
