I lusted after the Vectrex for several years in the eighties. It was probably on every birthday and Christmas list I made for 2 or 3 years. This amazing system wasn’t on my lists because I got to play it often, but because of ads like this that kept reminding me about its awesome capabilities (and promised ones). From this ad, I would have been excited about the 3D and the built-in monitor, but what really pulled me in was that light pen. Ever since I saw WarGames it was something I wanted.
