Classic Starcade...yeah baby
« on: August 30, 2012, 00:49:55 AM »
While doing some research for my book on arcade games, I came across this wonderful piece of arcade tv show spender, this show ran from 1982 to 1984 spanning 3 seasons and was years ahead of itself in terms of arcade play offs and showcased the cream of the crop classic arcade games of the 80's With over 130 episodes  ;)

Cool, I had never heard of this until now.  I'll try to watch a few episodes to see how I like it. Thanks!

If you love classic arcade games, this is the show for you..shame Arcades have been and gone, this would of been epic if he had of covered the late 80s and early 90s..a truly missed opportunity :(

But this is a great show, even if the host feels completely out of his dept lol.
