Space Invaders

It’s amazing to think that as recently as 1978 Video Games were just starting to *ahem* invade our collective consciousness Although I never really cared for it very much, it’s hard to deny the impact that Space Invaders has had on the culture and the industry.

” The game was so amazingly popular in Japan that it caused a coin shortage until the country’s Yen supply was quadrupled. Entire arcades were opened in Japan specifically for this game.”
