Dragon's Lair Walkthrough on Youtube

This is pretty sweet. It's a walkthrough of the game Dragon's Lair. I remember Dragon's Lair from my childhood. I saw it for the first time at Great America in Gurnee, Illinois. It stood out for two reasons: 1) it was the first video game I saw that cost $.50 2) is it looked freakin' awesome.

Technically Dragon's Lair was more of an interactive movie than a traditional video game. The player would watch an animated scene and woule either press the correct button, or get to watch the hero, Dirk, suffer a horrible fate. For the low low price of $.50 I got to watch Dirk suffer three times straight.

Watch the annotated commands and see how many you'd guess to hit at the correct timing. This game was a quarters vacuum.
