The programmer of Atari's 1976 arcade game Starship 1 placed the first Easter egg in a video game, and then promptly forgot how to trigger it. Now, 40 years later and after a lot of experimenting, he remembered the right sequence of coin-dropping and control-whacking needed to set it off. HI RON!

Hmm. Does this go under the GAMES topic or the MUSIC topic? Whichever I choose, Dave will swap it.
Anyway, the guitarist for the rock group Queen, Dr. Brian May (astrophysicist) has announced that they will have a Queen themed version of the classic board game.

Listen, son, we need to have a talk. This isn't going to be easy for either of us. You are not my son. I'm sorry, I know this will come as a blow to you. But the fact is, no son of mine plays Oregon Trail like you do.

How did a boring Nintendo game from 1987 become the most coveted cartridge ever? It's a bit of a mystery.

Quick, Draw! is a 'game' by Google Experiments. Can a neural network learn to recognize doodles? See how well it does with your drawings and help teach it, just by playing.

You are tasked with sketching out six different objects per game. The neural network has 10 seconds to figure out what the thing you are drawing is supposed to be.

Who remembers in the early 80's when the first laser discs came out and there was an arcade game named Dragon's Lair? The graphics were akin to a Disney cartoon and the game was very challenging. Well, some arcade owners cranked up the difficulty but others made it pretty easy to complete.

I must have wasted a roll or two in quarters on this bad boy before I finaly completed it but here is the complete playthrough of the game.

Bonus! Shortly thereafter, Space Ace came to the arcades. I never finished that game but now I can watch the playthrough for that one also.

Since it's shaping up to be a week of herding cats metaphorically, may as well go the full nine and do it literally - keep all the kitties doing the same thing simultaneously to score.

A pretty good recreation of the game but lacking some of the complexities. The price is right, waste away a few hours building your empire.

Questionaut is a short educational game. It's a point-and-click adventure game where you have to control an aeronaut who tries to get with his balloon as high as possible to get a hat which belongs to his friend.

You have to solve a simple problem and then answer questions. When you give the right answer, the balloon gets some air but if you give the wrong answer the balloon loses its air. Journey through strange worlds and test your knowledge of English, Maths and Science on this magical mission to recover your friend's hat.

When you're stuck and want to know how the story evolves, there's a complete walkthrough available.

The goal of Send Me To Heaven is to throw your phone as high as you possibly can and then catch it again. If it seems like a clever ploy to make you smash your phone, it totally totally isn't. Honest.

It's Wednesday. Waste away your day with this productivity application and your workweek is perfectly divided into two more manageable pieces.

Keep clicking on the penguin to keep him going up. Collect Turbo Boost power-ups to really send the little guy skyward. This game is great fun and terribly addictive.

Everyone's favorite internet resource Archive.org has done it again - this time they've archived a mad grip of emulated arcade games of the 70's and 80's. Start stacking quarters on your monitor for next!

I spend a fair amount of time playing GTA Online, but I'm not really a shooty killy kinda guy. I spend most of the time in the game skydiving and golfing and tooling around on a jet-ski, and get killed a lot by passers-by. I suck at gunplay in the game and am not interested in getting better at it.

I'm not alone in this approach to the game, but Youtuber goldvision has taken GTA pacifism to an artform.
