" Since this came out in '82, I never understood why they didn't just call this game Robotron: 2082...But rather than go 100 years into the future for the title, they had to get all fancy and add two more years. But anyway, this title never really got the love that Pac-Man, Donkey Kong, or even Q*Bert got, but it did inspire Geometry Wars, which in turn inspired waaaaaay too many low-quality iPhone games with similar gameplay...So we've gotta give it credit for that, right? RUNNERS-UP: Pitfall"

"A dual-joystick control scheme was developed for Robotron (1982) to provide the player with more precise controls. Most modern video game systems employ a dual-stick design. Other games, such as Inferno, Smash TV, Total Carnage, Geometry Wars, Everyday Shooter, and Super Stardust HD, all borrow the basic gameplay elements."

"Arcade - 1982 "Robotron is the id of arcade gaming--all impulse and instinct and reflex. If you take the time to wait for conscious thought to move from your brain to your hands, you're dead--simple as that. It's just so pure...probably why it still holds up and will likely never feel dated.""
