The Video Game Craze of 1982

In keeping with this week's themes, the video below shows a series of news segments from 1982 about the arcade video game craze. I found the link on Retroist. Apparently they come from a Los Angeles-based ABC station.

Note the imagery that the use to make the kids look half-crazed as the play. This despite the testimony from the psychologist who appears in the last segment that video games are really no big deal.
