Thanks to PBS I got to relive some great parts of my childhood. I played Centipede, Asteroids, Donkey Kong, Frogger, Tempest and various Pac Man incarnations as a youth.

The existence of this show proves why public television it is one of the best uses of our tax and contribution dollars. The TV program “The Video Game Revolution” aired at some point in time, but is kept alive by a space on the PBS website.

Oh, they have gaming quizzes, including guess the game sound and you can PLAY a classic on your computer..Today Galaga on PBS and

ATARI Games has online versions of Asteroids, Centepede, Tempest and Missile Command (which I fondly remember playing at the legendary CBGB’s in the early 1980’s.)
