What the Action District needs...

5 replies 177 views Edited Jan 4, 2013

 

 

The Action District looks nice for the Atari 40th.  The delapidated house has a cool Tron vibe, the sky is filled with asteroids and the back yard with tanks.  I even enjoyed the pong video.  But I think the Action District would be improved if there were some ACTION.

 

Would it have been hard to set up arcades to play those games for old time's sake??  Maybe this is another old space that should go the way of Sully's Bar and Ratchet & Clank.  I didn't see anyone there and there's absolutely nothing to do.

While I agree it would have been nice to have actually seen some games in the redecorated Action District, I'd hate to hasten the demise of any space whether I personally visit it or not. I think we lost enough as it is

that space isnt old... i agree, though, they lobotomized it by taking all the game portals out

This is why I didn't like what they did with removing the central plaza and adding all these useless spaces. Useless only because they worry more about clothing and furniture than the spaces themselves, and meanwhile third party devs are working on their own games and spaces.

The Atari 40th anniversary update was a rather nice commemoration. Perhaps this space could have been more Interactive, but it's removal is definitly not nessessary.
