    Default Anyone remember The Toons and their song "Video Games"?

    I came across this old music video which apparently wasn't shown on MTV for that long of a time period. This is a good example of how much people loved video games even before the video game crash.

    This could have possibly been the first song about video games? The video shows arcade machines and the background lyrics mention Atari briefly in two spots. The album I think was only released on Vinyl and it's quite hard to come by. A few songs got re-released on Dr. Demento, but I just wanted the album by the band so I bought the only one I could find online. Brand new. $10. I had looked before and never seen it.

    I'm a collector, but only to a certain extent.
    Not as extreme as Rickstilwell though.[/quote]
