Reboot…Believe it or not, that can be an ugly word. Whatever the context is, you need to be sure that you are doing it right and for the right reasons. Looking at some Hollywood examples, we have Robocop, Psycho, Ghostbusters, The Karate Kid, the original Star Wars trilogy before the computer alterations …. Need I go on? The point is, LEAVE THE CLASSICS ALONE! However when dealing with videogames, it can be a completely different story.

Back in 1982, the arcade was graced with a fun little food game from Bally/Midway called BurgerTime. The premise of the game is very simple. Taken from, “Peter Pepper, the chef, moves around the screen, walking over the parts of a hamburger. As the chef walks over each item of the burger, it drops to the level below. Armed with pepper he can throw on his enemies, he must avoid Mr. Hotdog, Mr. Egg, and Mr. Pickle. Bonuses appear in the forms of ice cream, coffee, and French fries.” This may sound ridiculous, but mark my words, it was fun and addictive.

It’s now 2019. Times and technology have changed (clearly getting more advanced), with Nintendo allowing companies to take new perspectives on the classic games for the Switch. It’s time for a BurgerTime Party! Read the rest of the article here at Old School Gamer!

Brad has been a die hard arcade fan ever since he can remember. From the first time he played Space Invaders, to the first time he played Pacman, Brad has always had a love for video games. Hanging out at either the Great American Fun Factory in the mall, or spending the night in front of the glowing games at the local roller rink, he was always thinking about when he can spend the next quarter. He also worked at Babbages, which is now GameStop, for over six years. Mostly because they had a really sweet checkout policy on new products and great discounts. But since he had the Atari 2600, he has never looked back and owned some of the greatest home machines, NES, SNES, GENESIS, Turbo Graphix 16, GameBoy, Game Gear, Lynx, Playsation 1,2,3,4 and Vita, XBOX, Gamecube, and N64...just to name a few. Brad is also a reviewer for Mobile Beat Magazine as well as a freelance videographer, part time disc jockey, performing artist and photographer. But has a true love is for video games and Star Wars, as he is a member of the 501st Central Garrison. His ultimate dream is to own a fully working pinball machine and arcade machine. Difficult to say which one, but a Star Wars one would be nice start.
