Atari's Adventure: Best graphics ever

Call me old-fashioned, but I believe a lot of teenagers spend too much time playing video games and not embracing life.

Man, look around, guys. There is a whole world out there to explore, and video games keep you inside and, thus, kill your soul.

But, hey, some video games are realistic and are so impressive with their graphics that they can transform the user into another person and offer an escape from his everyday worries. ... That's how I felt when I played Atari's "Adventure," and arguably, no game in the history of video games had better graphics than "Adventure."This game has dragons, swords and some sort of swashbuckler shaped as a square. My only critique for "Adventure" is that its realism is a bit too graphic for the faint at heart.

Through my extensive Internet research, I have learned that Atari's "Adventure" is credited with having the first, or at least one of the first, "Easter eggs" in a video game. An Easter egg in a video game is a hidden message or hidden joke. Really? The game needed to hide a joke?

Within the past year, the 3-D film "Avatar" garnered a lot of praise for its cutting-edge special effects. I saw the film and, yes, agree that the special effects are superb. However, those do not nearly compare to the special effects and emotional payoff of a game of "Adventure."A blinking gold chalice, castles and mazes, "Adventure" is beauty. To steal a phrase from "Avatar" and its made-up movie language:

"Adventure," I see you.

  5. It's understandable to have concerns about the amount of time teenagers spend playing video games, especially if it seems to detract from other experiences or activities. Encouraging exploration of the world and engaging in a variety of activities beyond gaming can indeed be beneficial for personal growth and development.
