Mark H- Berzerk NOOB

  • My first exposure to arcades as a paying player would be in the Skating Rink environment, playing the plastic roll games and my favorite, Stunt Cycle!
  • I am having trouble remembering exactly where I first saw Berzerk, but presume it was the original Twin Galaxies arcade in Ottumwa.  I remember the ominous and powerful voice, but the gameplay eluded me….I was a slower paced player like PacMan and Donkey Kong up to 1982
  • My most memorable past experience would be playing Berzerk on Atari 2600 because it felt like playing a real arcade game compared to the horrible rendition of 2600 PacMan.  My most memorable current experience with Berzerk would have been watching the screening of Chasing Ghosts and listening to the charismatic passionate view of the game by Joel West.
  • Learning the game this past winter I finally reached 20k on Slow Bullets and right at the 15k mark on Fast Bullets. A future goal, I look foward to seeing the hardest Robots available around the 19K mark on Fast Bullets.
