1991 News Report About The Dangers Of Video Games

November 15, 2012


This is a 1991 news report on the dangers of video gaming. Or at least that's how it starts. By 40-seconds it's already meandered into some weird advertisement for Super Nintendo. Then some joke of a reporter green-screens himself into a game of F-Zero and drives the track backwards the whole time. It ends with some lady explaining how she's not buying a Super Nintendo for her son because "people market things to make you spend more money." Basically none of it made any sense. It was like watching a Geekologie article.

Hit the jump for ol' skunk-hair here.

Thanks to Bruce, who especially liked the part at the beginning where the therapist is teaching kids to get angry at the game manufacturer, not their parents.
