i Into the land of Greg Wharton maneuvers his flying ostrich over a buzzard. He could hear those machines calling to him as he sat through the last 15 minutes of his class. The only thing he could concentrate on were ghosts, robots, spaceships and Kongjr. He could see them coming from all sides, but this time he thought he had figured it out. Class ended, and he dashed to his favorite game with quarter in hand. His anxiety rose as he opened the door only to find somebody already playing his game. So he waited and planned. The first guy choked on level 4. Our friend stepped up to take his best shot. He concen- trated for a moment, then slid his quarter in - "gulp" - and his video adversary came to life, taking him on a trip through video land. Steve Cummings concentrates on getting "Donkey Kong Jr." to save Donkey's Father. 140 1 van In the land of video, two types of gamesters existed: the perpetual loser and the addict. The perpetual loser was the person who con. sistently never made it past the second wave of any video game. He never tried to master a game, but his running total of Pac-Man at- tempts equaled Babe Ruth's homerun total. What force drove the perpetual loser to insert another quarter, numb more fingers, and lose the game e- again? Perhaps he enjoyed the thrill of defeat, or maybe he loved to be frustrated! Someone should have talked this person into being a full-time video cheerleader. The other type of gamester, the addict, was usually a one-game fan. He racked up enough free games on one machine to fill an empty afternoon. And after every class he was seen scurrying to the nearest piece of electronic equipment to receive his "fix." One wonders if video should have been declared a major. lt would have solved the pro- blem of deciding a major for many sophomores - and even seniors - who just couldnt seem to find their niche. Think of it, a space-video major with an animated-video minor. Video was a booming business on the Hill with so many avid fans always trying to better their scores. Many students used the games as an outlet to break away from studying, or for something to do on a date. Odds are Ms. Pac Man had more dates any night of the week than any ACU woman. Our friend who was playing the game at the beginning of this story is still playing .. . and probably will still be playing -- and losing -- by the time the next yearbook comes out. - Dena Edward: and Charles L. Pullen "Dig Dug," alias Kenny Buchanan, prepares for underground dragons. "Tron" tries to move through the MCP cone before going back to class.
