Interview and overview of the burgeoning video game industry in 1979. Great shot of the than bran-new “Hercules” pinball. Will giant pinball be the wave of the future?
They had one of those “Hercules” pinball machines at the Cedar Point (Sandusky, OH) midway arcade for years. It was still there and in working order when my daughter and I visited in summer 2008.
Sorry. Cant stop drooling over the Hercules widebody pinball table. What a fine electromechanical beast it was.
For those of you in New Jersey, the Carousel Arcade in Seaside Hights has a working one of these. Not to mention all sorts of classic games such as the old school Star War vector graphics game, Rystar, Cabal, Track and Field (Track Ball edition) as well as some great 80′s pinball (High Speed, F-14 TomKat, PinBot, etc).
