    Classic, of course. Zaxxon really broke the mold with its unique isometric 3D perspective. I remember being in awe just at that alone. Unfortunately though, the game play wasn’t that engrossing to me, so I’d easily pass it for something else.

    My clearest memory of that game, though, is remembering how this girl I had a crush on in junior high got that game for her Colecovision. Like a dork I used to ask her if I could come over sometime and play it, obviously with the ridiculous fantasy that somehow we’d fall in love by playing it together. Yeah.
