My parents bought me 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, I have to ask myself, was I just a dumb kid who couldn’t figure it out? Turns out today’s teens are as dumb as I was (though I was only 9 when it was released – I must have been advancedly inept for my age).
After this traumatic episode, I ended my relationship with video games and played baseball until I found WarCraft III. I am glad there was never a Power Glove version of that game.
