3. Well, I was in high school, and I thought it sucked
visually cool, absolutely.

But the game play didn't involve play at all - it involved figuring out what combination of joystick moves allowed one to live.

Seriously - and this is absolutely true - the video portion could simply have been, at every scene, a black screen with the words "Choose a joystick position".

Given enough quarters, eventually one would figure out the 100 joystick movement pattern essential to "win".
