Atari headquarters, 1983. A group of bored game designers sit around a table.
All right, guys, I know it's been a slow day, but let's finish on a high note, okay? We just need to come up with something that kids will find fun. We were all kids once. What did you guys think was fun when you were kids? How about you, Jonathan?
Hmm I had a paper route for a while. That was pretty good.
Okay, good. What sort of stuff did you do?
Let's see I delivered papers. That was important.
Sure. What else?
Well, I delivered the papers while riding a bike.
Okay! Bike riding! Now we're getting somewhere!
I don't know. The whole biking around thing wasn't really that fun. I remember having to spend a lot mental energy just avoiding obstacles. Lots of fire hydrants and lawnmowers and bees. Also a lot of breakdancers for some reason.
Hmm. Maybe we should focus on the act of delivering the papers. You had to throw the papers at the houses, right?
And throwing stuff's pretty fun, right?
