Playing video games on the BIG screen


A news helicopter doing a flyover of the stadium complex in Kansas City caught employees playing Mario Kart on the Crown Vision screen at Royals Stadium.

I'm not much a video game player but that would be freakin' awesome!

When Doom came out, someone was caught playing it on a projector in a police station. IIRC they were using the chainsaw at the time...

The fundraiser explanation rings true. We have AGDQ after all. Why not raffle off some tickets to be able to play games on the big screen?

The delay on those things must make game playing nearly impossible.

OMG! Sign me up. I'd totally play Mario Karts on a screen that big. I occasionally play it using our projector, but that can't hold a candle to screen in that news story.
