Journey, The Video Game (1982)

Before you could play channel Journey by playing their songs on Guitar Hero, you had to channel them by running around in Escape, this game for the Atari 2600 in which you had to pilot Steve Perry, Neal Schon, and the others as they tried to escape mobs of groupies for some reason. The arcade version is notable for being the first video game to feature photo-realistic images, with digitized Journey faces plastered onto the tiny, pixilated Journey bodies.

From the middle of nowhere in the Pacific Northwest, I contribute to the Retroist, write for trivia publications, and blog about music in a humorous fashion. I feel about "Back to the Future" the way you feel about "Star Wars." Also, I'm married and have a child (sorry ladies, orphans).
