I have very distinct memories of burning quarters at the arcade on a new kind of video game which featured not computer graphics but gosh darned actual animation.  Dragon’s Lair made a huge splash at my local arcade and people lined up to jam that joystick to the left, the left! The LEFT DAMMIT!

Now I can look forward to doing that on my iPod touch. Yay technology!  Here’s the trailer released by EA

If you’re old enough to remember this game you’ll very much enjoy this video.  If you’re not old enough, then realize we used to have to walk uphill both ways through 2 feet of snow almost two miles just to reach the arcade to play video games.  Then we spent all day panhandling for quarters.

About Ben

I'm a geek. A nerd, a dweeb, whatever. Yes I owned garb, yes I still own medieval weaponry. And yeah, I could kick your butt in Mechwarrior the CCG. I love video games, role playing games, tactical board games and all forms of speculative fiction. I will never berate someone for wanting to be a Jedi and take everything Gary Gygax ever wrote as gospel. Well, all of this but that last bit.
