Video Game Night: A success! (except for the clips I didn't actually watch)
Video Game Night was awesome!
Kevin and I scoured the internet and some VHS tapes for some obscure and not so obscure video game clips. (By the way, none of them were from all the video game movies I've seen over the years).
A lot of clips went over a lot better than I would have expected, like a montage I put together from Secret Video Game Tricks, Codes, & Strategies of all byzantine NES codes that made the Contra code look like pushing the start button. Although one clip that I never actually watched all the way through, the Mario Bros meeting Cher and her dog, seemed to make people physically ill. The Mario Bros meeting Milli Vanilli didn't go over that much better, and I actually cut some of the really bad stuff out of it.
Best of all, I got to talk about being the greatest Ice Climber player that ever lived to a bunch of people who actually seemed to be somewhat impressed. And then I lost a game of Pac-Man, and lost all my street cred, but whatever, I'm never said I was the greatest Pac-Man player that ever lived. Anyway, thanks to Kevin and everybody who came out!
