Over on the Cavalcade of Awesome, I looked at 14 vintage ads for video games based on movies. So this week on Held Over, I'm looking at video game movies.
Here's an ad for the classic 1983 movie, War Games, starring Matthew Broderick and Ally Sheedy. In the movie Broderick's character, David Lightman, is a video gamer. You see him playing the game Galaga several times (it's even in the trailer below).
Other video game movies:
- Joysticks (1983)
See the War Games trailer:
