Do You Remember Frogger?

posted by Nell Minow

Frogger.pngThe Museum of the Moving Image has a fantastic and nostalgic online exhibit of classic 1980′s video games like Frogger, Space Invaders, Pong, Missile Command, and of course Pac-Man. Best of all, you can download and play the games — and this time, you don’t need a roll of quarters to play.

Enjoy!

    Now you are tickling my nostalgia bone. I poured too many quarters into Frogger machines – and many more. These came out while I was in seminary.

    I was so much a Frogger fan that I had a Frogger t-shirt. Back when our boys were in their terrible toddler stage, I negotiated a night out once a week. That often meant a night spent at the video arcades of the time. In fact, I have a video game token collection dating way back when.
    Just last week I attended a flea market where a large auction of classic video games was taking place. You could play these games ahead of the auction and I played a game of Frogger free. Got past the first round rather easily. Still got it.
