Why Defender? Besides being one of the most important, difficult and beautiful games ever made... I want everyone to be able to experience this landmark classic video game in person. The shooter genre was largely based on this game (and Scramble among others) but few games ever eclipsed it. One thing I like about Defender is you have to destroy things and save things simultaneously. It isn't a mindless shoot-fest, you have to save the the little humans all the time from the aliens while also killing the aliens. I'm excited to introduce you to this game if you've never played it before - just be aware it is brutally difficult. And look at that side art!
