The game has changed, my friends
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.
