One of the coolest game shows from back in the day was Nick Arcade on Nickelodeon. For those too young to remember or living outside the US, it was a quiz show with a videogame hook. There would be "Video Challenge" rounds in which contestants would play one of the available 16-bit games and try to meet a specified score or goal. And the winning team from the main game would get to enter the "Video Zone," a virtual reality room that literally put the players inside a videogame. So awesome.
Mega64 is bringing Nick Arcade back for the 21st century. The games are a little different, but hopefully you'll agree that the spirit is the same.
