Dragon's Lair, Dragon's Lair 2: Time Warp, and Space Ace

[Mash Tactics airs Monday through Friday at 4p.m. Pacific on Dtoid.TV. Watch Rick 'King Foom' Olson play a variety of games, each day with its own theme. With a heavy focus on community and viewer interaction, you can be as much a part of the show as anything else.]

Ever since I was young, I have always been absolutely amazed, and entranced by the awesome animation of Don Bluth. From movies such as The Secret Of NIMH and The Land Before Time, to games like Dragon's Lair and Space Ace, this man and his unique artistic style have been nothing but a constant inspiration to me throughout the years. So in a bit of a tribute, tonight's Mash Tactics will be dedicated to a trio of his gaming works.

This evening we'll be running through Dragon's Lair, Dragon's Lair II: Time Warp, and Space Ace on what is bound to be a sentimental, nostalgia-filled live show for me. If you've never seen any of these titles in action before, I think you owe it to yourself to come by and check them out for a short bit. Even if you happen to hate these types of games, I have a strong feeling that you'll still love the art, animation, and humor at the very least. If not, well, to each their own.

QotD: QTE's. Love them, hate them, or don't really care?
