Back in the '90s, '70s nostalgia reigned supreme. And few games took advantage of our rekindled love for all things groovy like Activision's Interstate '76. This car combat simulator didn't simply act as a superficial sendup of "The Me Decade," though; Activision's surprisingly complex creation used a '70s backdrop to add a heavy dose of atmosphere and colorful characters that wouldn't be there otherwise. On this episode of Retronauts Micro, join Bob for a brief examination of why Interstate '76 is really something special--even if it's not the easiest thing to get up and running these days.
