When I was a boy I took every opportunity to ride into town with my mom when she needed to go grocery shopping. In town, they had all the things a boy needed – comic books, toy aisles and even arcade games. In those days and in that town, it was no big deal to be dropped off at one store while your mom shopped elsewhere. It was 1980-something, the “golden age of arcade video games,” I played Pac-Man and Gauntlet and Spy Hunter until I ran out of quarters. Mom would finish her shopping, then we would head home and I wouldn’t play again until the next time we came to town.
