When I was a kid, I thought that Showbiz Pizza Place was the best restaurant in the world. It had: 1) Video Games. 2) Pizza.
QBert, Sinistar, Spy Hunter… ah, heaven. Of course, this was before Showbiz and Chuck E. Cheese merged and discovered that there was even more money to be made through games that rewarded tickets and tickets being exchanged for knock-off crap from the dollar store. And not just a few tickets. Like, 25 tickets for a spider ring. Dude! Those 25 tickets took about 2 bucks to get! You’ve spent 2 bucks on a six cent ring!!!!
Anyway, where was I? Oh, yeah. Showbiz. Well, when they got rid of the video games there was really no reason to keep going and, quite honestly, I really haven’t thought much about that place much ever since.
Until now. This video game explores the idea that, honestly, these places were really, really creepy.
And that’d never occurred to me before.
So… what are you playing?
