Video Game Challenge Pilot Episode (1983)
« on: July 18, 2011, 10:11:28 PM »
If anyone remembers the short part in Chasing Ghosts, where Billy is talking about the Millipede competition between Ben Gold and Eric Ginner, and have not watched it yet, I recommend to do it. It was a cool show, too bad it did not make more episodes.

Ben Gold uploaded the pilot on youtube and write's this:
This was the pilot episode of the Video Game Challenge. While the series never took off, the interviews and discussions are nostalgic, especially when seeing how primitive the graphics were. Eric Ginner and I faced off in a Millipede competition.

Played a real Millipede for the first time at Funspot and I was totally baffled why they put such a large trackball in it....should have had the Centi trackball.
