My vote would be Grocery Game, since about all cash registers are now equipped with electronic readouts. I'd envision green numbers for a win, and red for a loss.
While something like this could eventually happen and they could possibly ditch the old-fashioned cash register altogether one day, Grocery Game is the one game that I would definitely like to see stay the way it is until change is necessitated. The cash register and the total and Win/Loss display just has a classic look and feel that fits the game very well and it's one of the few games that I would be disappointed by it getting an update to be more modern.

When thinking about the psychology of the reveal, I think that from the viewer's standpoint it's important to think about the type of game/reveal.  If you're revealing the price of an item digitally, a viewer is likely to be less suspicious of game manipulation by the producers than if you're revealing the location of a bonus, or an X.  In the viewer's mind, a price is established, but a location is determined by the person running the game.  That's why the screens bother me in Bonus Game.
I agree with you in general, and in particular I'm glad I'm not the only one with the same thought concerning Bonus Game. That display change, along with the loss of the classic turntable spin shot, took Bonus Game off of my list of favorite games. Though I'm not suggesting any manipulation, the reveal of the "Bonus" just doesn't feel the same with the current display.

I would have no problem at all with an LCD update of the price digits in 3 Strikes. If done, I hope those in charge would keep the digit font the same, as was done with the one-bid readouts.

Definitely Teddy, Grocery Game is way overdue for a set update to include LCD. My other choices for season 47 are Lucky Seven, Pass the Buck, Race Game and 3 Strikes. I would not be surprised if Gorcery Game and any of the other four games get LCD set updates in the upcoming season.

For what it's worth, I think Credit Card should be revived with a complete redesign that involves a new ATM-like prop similar to the one pictured below:


As for the card itself, I think it should get a new design that might either look like or be similar to the following:

That looks like a pretty good reimagining! What do you think the price reveals would look like?

You do realize the prop had nothing to do with why Credit Card was retired, right?

I don't think this really counts, but, what about Punch a Bunch. Press the paper holes that they want. Then, in the screen will show which order the spots were picked. Drew touches the screen again and the dollar amount will be displayed.

I’m gonna skip the “paper slips are good” spiel; why do you believe touchscreens would  improve Punch-A-Bunch?

So, Press-A-Bunch?  Nah.

Aside from being too manipulative (I don't think it would happen, but you never know) it's more fun to watch someone slamming his fist through flimsy paper instead of pressing a touchscreen. You get to watch Drew dig the paper out of the hole and then watch Drew (or Bob before him) prolong the contestant's agony. You can't do that with an LCD.

I could see Grocery Game getting overhauled entirely, using a self-checkout theme, even though it'd take away that retro feel to it.

With the redo of Bullseye still fresh in our minds, what game or games do you see as being next in line for an LCD upgrade? I could definitely see a game like Make Your Move getting that treatment with colored touch-sliders ala Double Cross.

Sorry if I'm a bit late to the party but I checked out the debut of the new Bulls-Eye look...and seriously...dance lessons/meals/rides for a year? :P

I would like to see Easy as 123 go with LCD. Get rid of the plunger because sometimes the reveal card gets stuck.  Also maybe Grand Game. Slide the price to the right. No more flipping with Drew`s big hand. Too quick and too hard would result in another price being revealed.
