Tonight I picked up a new-to-me 1982 Vectrex video game console. It has amazing vector graphics and a built in monitor. Don’t know what vector graphics are? Think back to Asteroids in the arcade.
The price was right and included a boxed Berzerk cartridge with video overlay. The pictures shows the Vectrex with the built in game, Mine Storm (with overlay) which is an Asteroids clone. The unit cleaned up nicely and is working 100%.
For now, the console is sitting proudly on top of my dresser. Like the Atari 2600 purchase I made last year, having this vector graphics console that I once played when I was eleven is another fantasy fulfilled. Although life is not easy for me and my family right now, this is one of life’s gifts that I appreciate.
