    One of the single most entertaining and thrilling games I have ever watched. There's no one like this guy. He is the Master of Marathoners. No doubt he will push the activity to new heights and new records.

    Without a doubt, Q*bert has definitely been my favorite. Unfortunately, after the arcade boon of the 1980's, the machine was impossible to find. I haven't played the game since (my estimate) 1988. Not being able to find the game anywhere near me, I purchased a game for myself. After not playing for over 23 years however, I plugged it in and immediately sat down to a 2 hour game. I guess it's much like riding a bike!
