Hey, I thought it was excellent, I don't know why they don't make television programmes like that nowadays.

I phrased it incorrectly. I'm not saying that they weren't state of the art back then, it's just fun to see them rave about such games now

Great finding!

The man with the beard impressed me the most, trying to squeeze out all the benefits by playing games:

"Yeah, the kids learned a lot of physics playing Asteroids"
or
"Its a physical coordination hitting three times on space"
