Those were the times... Spandex, mullets, pink neons. "Shall we play a game?", Space Invaders, Galaga.

There are some game - from the 80's, older, or newer - that invoke a kind of nostalgia for this decade.

I want to die peacefully in my sleep, like my grandfather . . . not screaming and yelling like the passengers on his bus

The first video game I ever owned, c. 1987. Played it on my Tandy CoCo 3. The computer looked like an extra thick keyboard and the game cartridge looked like a small 8-track tape that you actually stuck into a port on the side of the computer. It's still up in my attic. I think it had 8kb of memory.

Only got the game quite recently, but enjoyed the film Red Dawn in the 80’s which this game reminds me of. Really sums up the 80’s for me.

This is the game I immediately thought of...perfectly sums up the spirit of optimism and consumerism of the 1980s: Race through life trying to buy up as much useless stuff as possible. Ah, the good old days.
