 AGH Jaguar Review -- Tempest 2000
The original Tempest was pure gaming bliss, and can be considered the Pac-Man or Tetris of shooters because it's one of those games that is so unique and wonderful that nobody's really tried to emulate it because they know they'd fail.
Even after you've become good at this game, you MIGHT think all you're doing is getting by on reaction skills alone, but sharp players will realize that it's more a matter of human brain power working its magic as you get "in-the-zone" in an almost zen-like state.
I'll just sum up Tempest 2000 by proclaiming it to be one of the wildest, thrilling, adrenaline-inducing shooters to come out in a long time.

 Why Use Video Games
Clearly video games have emerged as one of the most poplar forms of entertainment, especially those that contain a story-line and have been transformed into movies (Sherry, Lucas, Rechtsteiner, Brooks, and Wilson 2000).
In the gaming research study titled, “Beyond Myth and Metaphor: The Case of Narrative in Digital Media,” author Marie-Laure Ryan argues that narrative representation is constructed by the reader on the basis of the text.
This negative label originated from the commonly held belief that most American college students who have access to video games but who do not have home access to computers are from economically disadvantaged families, and are therefore unable to use technology with ease and comfort; producing writing that is rushed and underdeveloped (Moran 218).

In the case of Indrema, the San Francisco-based company hopes to give smaller players a chance to succeed in the highly competitive video game market, in addition to facilitating a development process that could decrease time to market and reduce the number of bugs in the games.

One industry observer noted that, "the Indrema model is a radical plan." He said that game makers must make different sets of code for the same game in order to have it play on all of the competing consoles.

The games ranged from takes on an existing formula (as The Battle for Naboo was to Rogue Squadron) to platform inspired action titles (Jedi Power Battles) to a modern recreation of the "Super" line of SNES titles (The Phantom Menace).

 Law enforcement left out of video gaming proposal
Maine law enforcement officials have always been clear that, if the state were to allow for video gambling, it should let police electronically monitor the gambling and should leave the ownership of the machines in state hands.
With the machines in private hands, and the state having no way to monitor whether bettors or state tax collectors are getting their share, this proposal makes it impossible for police to verify that the operation is legitimate.
Police would have little oversight of this massive gaming operation, and that's a recipe for corruption.
