What kid hasn’t dreamed that one day, all those countless hours of playing video games would suddenly become the one thing that could save humanity? Come on, you can hear the collective outcry of mothers across the nation telling their sons or daughters that playing video games is a waste of time and it could be spent outside, doing things that normal kids do. I certainly heard, but then again the outside was scary and video games were a safe alternative lifestyle for my reclusive nature. But one day, I wish I could prove the world that my great skills at playing Q-bert would come in handy if I needed to defeat some aliens on a block pyramid of some kind. But alas, that won’t happen, but the movie The Last Starfighter definitely put the fuel on the fire of our dreams that our quarter dropping, arcade playing skills would be needed to defend the universe. The 80s fucking ruled!
