Visual Pinball is great Always a bit clunky trying to keep it working though, the dev(s) have some stupid idea that the binaries somehow expire to force you to get newer versions.

I have it running on my emulator cabinet although to make it play seamlessly without needing a key/mouse etc, I needed to set each 'table' up individually (compared with MAME which just works when you point it at your completely-legit ROM directory). As such, I run about 50 well-simulated tables only, from the complete collection of hundreds.

My favourite VP tables: Fathom (the Scapino one) and Fish Tales.

They have gorgar too.
If you want to play a high quality gorgar in HD and real 3d then i can reccomend Williams pinball classics it will be released this week for PS3,xbox,PSP and WII.

I can also recommend Zen pinball and Marvel pinball if you have an PS3 or Pinball FX2 if you have an Xbox.
Not having dose is a sin, especially because they are cheap

You guys should also check out Future Pinball. I have both on my arcade but I think future pinball looks better if you only using one screen.
Check out this site under Future Pinball Released. Steve and Glxb make some awesome tables. GoPinball.com • Index page
