Silverball Chronicles Ep 14: Gomez - This One Has A Lot Of Arcade Stuff

Silverball Chronicles with David and Ron

Episode 14: Gomez - This One Has A Lot Of Arcade Stuff  

 

Visit Our Silverball Swag Store

https://silverballswag.com/collections/silverball-chronicles 

 

Episode Summary 

George Gomez has created some of the most well received pinball machines our hobby has ever seen. He got his big break with Williams Pinball, but the current Executive Vice President and Chief Creative Officer of Stern Pinball had a big career before the silverball. His mixture of experience prior to pinball built his unique style of pinball creativity. In fact, one of the toughest critics around, Python Anghelo called George a “good guy and very passionate,” Woah!  

 

Join Ron and Dave this month as they follow George Gomez from the Cuban Revolution to Midway making games like Satan’s Hollow, Tron, and Spy Hunter. Then in a shift to toy company Marvin Glass and eventually Bally-Williams where he made a splash right away in the shark pool! Look out, this episode has an hour of arcade talk…
