This game show was focused around the newest trend of the 80s: video games. Contestants would answer questions, and the one who would answer a question right, would get their choice of what video game to play. The points scored in the video game would be added on to their total score in the game. The winner would play a bonus round for prizes. Sidenote: This game show was also responsible for introducing Don Bluth's Dragon's Lair to the world. Written by Pat McCurry <>

where did they GET their contestants
26 June 2003 | by baconbitSee all my reviews

I've only seen a few episodes but it drives me nuts. Not only would I win every show, I would get the grand prize game on every how too. And I was never all that great at many games. Back then I had a few that I was REALLY good at, but most I rarely played. And some of these games I have never played before, and I downloaded them to play on MAME just to see and I STILL beat the contestants at it. You would think that if you were going to try out to be on the show, you would have SOME hand eye coordination. Apparently not.
