Certain video games stressed me out in the arcade – this was one of them. I remember 1982 and the sound of Zaxxon…it was the sound that threw me. This weird sound to what should’ve been a simple game to play…but it threw me. Maybe it was the fuel level going down (always stressful). Loved this game…just sucked at it. – Big Jim
