Computer Space: Arcade Review

Since Gerard's covered under over 20 inches of snow up in New Hampshire I guess I'll have to fill in the introduction for his newest video. From 1971 here's a look at one of the very first video arcade games, Computer Space. Loosely based off Spacewar! you control a space ship out to blow up flying saucers and that's pretty much it. The game was a bomb when it came out. People found the game too difficult to play and to understand which is why they decided to base their next game off of the Brown Box prototype which we all know ended up ushering in the age of Atari.

We're going to have a podcast up later in the week! So be on the lookout for that soon!
