Brian's World: Fads Of The 80s - Remember These Videogames?
The Eighties brought the popularity of the video arcades really into the spotlight. We even had movies with plots involving videogames. Remember WAR GAMES, TRON, and JOYSTICKS? Enjoy scanning through the lists of popular and not-so-popular videogames from the 80s. There's lots of links to help you find just what you're looking for. A * signifies that it was one of my particular favorites.
-VIDEOGAMES OF THE EIGHTIES-
There were hundreds of videogames released in the 80s- both good and bad. There is no way I can list them all here. That would be crazy. I will only list a videogame title if there is a page dedicated to the game where you can find additional info on it. The above link to "Videogames of the 80s" has info on just about every game imaginable. The other links for the Atari 2600 and Colecovision are also great resources. If you find pages about specific games send me the web address and I'll list it.
