Dragon's Lair HD-DVD

by Stephen Cameron

Back in the early 80's, when it came time to play a video game, you had to reach deep into your pocket and pull out your allowance; broken down into a "boat anchor-like" pile of quarters. On top of that, you had to be particularly stingy on what machine ate up that loot!

To be honest, back then home gaming consoles weren't all that great.
The real treat was leaving the house and heading out to the arcade. The stench of cigarette smoke, sticky floors and the loud music of The Scorpions gave these environments their character. But when Dragon's Lair showed up, all of that seemed forgotten. But just why was this title so important? Firstly, it was one of the first games to tie together cutting edge technology with a great story. Up to that point, the two had never been so carefully meshed together. Looking at how today's gaming industry has become crazy fierce, we might take what Dragon's Lair accomplished for granted.
