Bring The Idea Back!
6 July 2002 | by ikari135See all my reviews

What can I say? The early 90's rocked for video gamers. Nick Arcade and Video Power were the greatest Video Game game shows on Earth. Where Video Power's second and final season (in 1991) started the trend of allowing players to demonstrate their skills against other players, Nick Arcade took the idea to another level by setting scores for players to beat and presented the winning team with the honor of being part of a Video Game. The host, Phil Moore was the man, and should be back on TV hosting another show. The prizes on Video Power were understandably video games. Nick Arcade gave it's winners things like cameras and bikes and trips to sunny destinations or Space Camp but who really wants to go on a crummy vacation anyhow versus getting new games? Personally, I think Nickelodeon should bring the show back (no not in Re-Runs) with the same format except for having more up to date games for kids to play. They should also bring back other shows like Guts and Legends of the Hidden Temple. Although the games on the old show weren't actual arcade games (and were gaming consoles hooked to monitors built into cabinets), they could trace their roots to those found commonly at Arcades of the day. Kids today do not have an appreciation for the classic Arcade as those of my day. The arcade to them is family fun centers like Chuck 'E' Cheese and other family fun centers. This might help those who want to reconnect to the past and introduce a new generation of gamers to ideas of old.
