This VHS Board Game Supercut Will Bring Back Geeky Memories

In the 1980s gamers were introduced to a new kind of interactive game-VCR board games, the games you played while sitting in front of the TV.

VCR board games were seen as cutting edge by some, a weak comparison to console video games by others, but every kid who liked board games had to try out a VCR game at least once, to see what all the buzz was about.

The difference was immediately apparent, as a live action game master on the tape guided their gaming experience by yelling at them, telling them what to do or simply by adding some video scene flavor to the game.

Somewhere I still have the Robots by Isaac Asimov VHS game. We had a good time playing it, although I can't seem to convince my 11 yr old of that fact.
