The first video game review on Murphy’s Media Memories. This game is Megarace. You remember it more for it’s host who is just bizarre and makes bad jokes than you do for the actual game itself (which is still fun).

MMM – MegaRace (CD Game) from Shawn Padraic Murphy on Vimeo.

That title is no joke. This is a board game / RPG game that I created after watching Jurassic Park and playing only 1 hour of a Dungeon & Dragons-like game.

While at my cousin’s place one day, he had me play this game that only required listening and then stating what you want to do (I do not remember if there were weapons and spells, or even items) and I tried to create a game similar to that, but ended up merging it with a board game.  It was a board game where you couldn’t see the board, but had to listen to what I was describing so you wouldn’t go the wrong way.

However, this ‘board’ game, ended up being on over 30 pages of large Notebook paper.  It started only as Jurassic Park, then every day or so, I would add another board (or another licensed property), until it was an immensely large game.

So, this is the latest episode I look back at this game I made when I was 12, without having looked at it in almost 20 years.

Here is the 1st episode of Murphy’s Media Memories. This series will look at different media that influenced me from baby (1982), childhood, to the end of high school (2000). The first episode below is one that hardly anyone I have met has ever seen, the children’s film, “The Fantastic Adventures of Unico” an animated that was dubbed in 1983 and shown on HBO and placed on VHS for rentals and sales.
