Both Eggmond and NintenDaan will be covering the Nintendo Direct this morning, so no worries about missing out on the action. I know they'll do a fantastic job, so I hope they see you back here later this morn! See you in a few, short hours.
No, this isn't a picture from 25 years ago. This actually comes from earlier tonight. Early in the week I purchased a Retron 5 and it showed up today. I hooked that baby up to my TV and fooled around with it a bit, but it wasn't until my parents visited that the real fun began. Yes, my parents are really going head-to-head in Super Jeopardy!, which might be just a tad outdated.
You'd think the age of the game would matter, but it really didn't. It was funny to see what questions were asked and how they were phrased all these years later, but the core of the game was still fun. I can't help it...I'm a sucker for video games based on game shows. I've loved game shows all my life and getting to play them at home with friends/family is just as fun.
If there's a video game adaptation of a video game, you can usually count me in. I've purchased so many over the years. Wheel of Fortune, Jeopardy!, Press Your Luck, Who Wants to Be A Millionaire and so many others. I don't care how low the production values are. As long as the game plays similarly to the game show its based off of, I'm good to go.
Does anyone else out there feel compelled to pick up these games? I know they're usually low budget and low quality, but that doesn't stop the fun for me. I'm sure quite a few of you look down on me for buying games like this and I can't blame you! Game show video games certainly deserve better, but I just can't help myself. What game show video games have you picked up? Were they worth the money or were they a waste?
