Arcade Dreams

by on Nov.16, 2008, under Uncategorized

I just had the most amazing dream…I dreamed I was spending some time at a place that had lots of old arcade games set up to play. Classic stuff like Pac-Man, Centipede, Ms. Pac-Man, of course…but there were also a lot of them that just came right from my imagination, and yet seemed in some way plausible. Arizona Sun, a game where you played a private detective being menaced by thugs, and its sequel Louisiana Bailey, starring his female counterpart. Metalevel, where each level was drawn (recycled, pastiched?) from a classic video game. And then there was the room with several rows of cocktail cabinets with instruction manuals that could be perused…stuff like Sasmiris, the emergent-story game from Chris Crawford. And Trojan, with its hilariously bad full-motion video of women in impractical armor. And Don-Cha, the sexually explicit caveman therapy game.

…And then I woke up and realized that none of these games actually exist. Sigh.
