Re: Confess Your Unpopular Video Game Opinions

1. Star Fox 64 and Bioshock Infinite are below average.
2. Classic arcade game Galaga is good, not great.
3. Digital downloads are not evil.
4. Clasic arcade game Bagman is awesome.
5. INTV controllers aren't bad at all.

Re: 2016/10/19: Intellivision: Dracula, Tutankham

Great reviews as usual VGC, and I completely agree with the C grade for Dracula. The game is extremely creative and unique, but just not that fun to play. Which is a shame, because it had the potential to be a great game. I bought the game in late 82 or early 83 at American Sew and Sound in Pittsbur...

Re: Photos of people playing home video games from way back

Absolutely love the first pic by Scotland with the boy in the orange shirt playing a CV. The living room is pure simplicity, much like mine was back in the day. Brought back a ton of video gaming memories. Hard to believe I was playing Pong with my sister at home over 40 years ago.

Re: Is E.T. on Atari 2600 really that bad?

Under the circumstances I think HSW did a fine job; any fault in the situation belongs to Atari, whose corporate arrogance at the time was legendary, and fully deserved the fate it met. The more I read about Atari executives, the more that 'arrogance' does stand out. I will have to learn more to be...

Re: Is E.T. on Atari 2600 really that bad?

Timing also played a crucial role. On December 7th, 1982, Atari released its quarterly financials which were way lower than had been expected. Warner, the parent company, saw its stock price drop an astonishing 35% in one day. This spelled the beginning of the end for the industry (until the NES cam...

Re: Gaming rumors that do/have annoyed you

A laser disc add on for The Colecovision? Never heard that one. I should clarify this one. I believe it was Video Games magazine that stated back in 1983 that CV was in talks with Cinemetronics to license Dragon's Lair. The writer speculated that perhaps a CV laser-disc add-on might come as a resul...

Re: Gaming rumors that do/have annoyed you

Early 80's video game mags were full of vaporware or products that never saw the light of day, such as the INTV III and INTV IV, the Colecovision Super Games Module, Odyssey 3, a 2600 Keyboard, and a laserdisc add-on for the CV. However, I didn't really find this reporting annoying, but rather fasci...

Re: Tron the arcade game (1982)

Some things are best left as memories in the arcade. Playing this game as a download would be fun for a few minutes, but then I'd get bored and wish that I could just play it at an arcade. It's funny; when I was a kid I dreamed about playing arcade games on a home console. Now as an adult I dream a...

Re: My daughter and I have gotten into Star Trek

Surprised I missed this thread the first time around. I remember watching the original Star Trek as a kid with my mom many moons ago. Star Trek TNG was not very good the first 2 seasons, but seasons 3-7 were really great (and surprisingly deep at times), and I've seen every episode multiple times. S...
