Subject: In Soviet Russia, Games Play You!

Written By: Foo Bar on 06/23/09 at 11:54 pm

From our neighbors at that other place with the squirrel nuts, in honor of the 25th anniversary of Tetris, they Photoshopped some Soviet Video Games

At first, I was only laughing, but then the "Dig Dug" one not only got my vote, it caused my beer to spill, and I had to share the humor with all of y'all.

But this being the Internet, the reality is even cooler than the parody.  There really is a Museum of Soviet Arcade Machines, and while their technology appears to be about 3-4 years behind their American and Japanese counterparts, the games were as much fun to an 80s Russian as our games were to an 80s Westerner.
