Wildfire electronic pinball

Video games started out as being a simulation of a real life activity. The first video game was Pong, which was a simulation of Ping Pong. All the way up to The Sims and FarmVille, we love to play simulations of things we could, or in the case of FarmVille, never want to do in real life.So here is another entry into that genre of video games. The above ad is for a hand held electronic pinball game called Wildfire. All the fun of pinball without the coin slot. I tried to use that argument 25 years ago to try and convince my mom to buy me an NES. "But Mom, then I wouldn't have to go to the arcade anymore"...yeah right.
