1980s Games were awesome! What was it about these video games that were so great? In my opinion it was a combination of the sound effects, the animation and the idea of the game. Pac-Man, Asteroids just to name a few were classic good character against enemy character. Your running trying to survive and you love the intensity of the game. I must admit I loved the stress of the 80s games. I think it was healthy to escape for a afternoon into these games. We have built a level of intensity into our games with Honey Dee. She is innocent looking with a mind that is sharp as they come. You have to have a level of advantage over your enemy in games. This makes it utopia for the player. The challenge is usually in the time it takes you to get free or accomplish the goal. Without a timer it is pretty easy to win in any game.
