News: Starcade online

by on June 1, 2008

starcade.jpgThe complete episodes of Starcade are online to watch for free now, and I recommend checking a few episodes out. It’s a game show from the 70s in which contestants tried to achieve specific goals in old arcade games in order to win, and was hosted by a sort of used car salesman guy. It’s surprisingly entertaining if you like seeing old games being played, and it’s also rather neat to see some of the strategies some of these kids come up with, or come into the studio with already. It’s also particularly nice because it’s not sensationalized. It’s certainly riding the coattails of videogames’ successes at the time, but it’s not the pandering, patronizing television coverage we see today. Games are taken as they are.
