Our parents bought us a Power Glove about a week after it came out. One week later it was collecting dust at the bottom of the toy box. It was so unusable and unmanageable there should have been a class-action lawsuit. Thinking back, we have to ask ourselves, were we just dumb kids who couldn’t figure it out? Turns out today’s teens are as dumb as we were (though we were only 9 when it was released – we must have been advancedly inept for my age).
After this traumatic episode, we ended our relationship with video games and played baseball until we found WarCraft III. We’re glad there was never a Power Glove version of that game.
