Odds are, if you consider yourself a “Classic Gamer,” you’ve seen the movie “Tron” 112.4 times. That number comes from the fact that we know you scan the movie to the “Space Paranoids” scene and then straight to when Flynn gets digitized and brought into the computer to meet the MCP himself. We don’t have time to screw around! We have Lightcycle scenes to see, dammit!
Face it, this movie is the Classic Gamer’s “Casablanca.” It’s the main reason you bought a DVD player.
You’ve also felt the consequences of openly declaring to “outsiders,” “Yeah! Tron’s a great flick!” then
quickly retreating from their scowls to the safety of rec.games.video.classic on the Internet.
It’s ok. You’re among friends. We at Classic Gamer Magazine believe this movie and its actors stand out
among the greats: Brando. . .DeNiro. . .and that guy who played “Ram.”
We know you devour Tron’s video game counterparts just as ravenously. So we’ve decided, in honor of this classic motion picture, to run down the great and not so great games this piece of art has spawned.
