Who remembers Doorways To Adventure The VCR Game by Pressman? I remember it and actually played this game. A neighbor friend invited me over and we attempted to play. Unfortunately we got bored and ditched the game in favor of a trip to our local arcade. Doorways To Adventure was a simple auction style game where players had to bid on objects shown in the video. The video consisted of old movie clips with cheesy narrations. Thanks to YouTube user FunWithPlasmids we can relive this game! (If you get bored, feel free to pause the video and visit your local arcade!)

Wow, that game is still dull. Too bad my friend didn't have the Doorways To Horror VCR game. I'm sure we would have enjoyed that game much better. Click here to enter the Doorways To Horror or better yet, watch the 30 second commercial for Doorways To Horror hosted by the Wolfman!

My family had this game and loved it! As long as the same clips didn't get played over and over, we weren't bored at all. I never played Doorways to Horror, unfortunately.

We had another game called Flash Match, which was basically Memory in VCR form. Now THAT was boring!

Phillyradiogeek - That's good to hear that you and your family found some enjoyment from this game. Maybe things would have been different if my family owned it instead of a neighbor kid.

I have Doorways to Horror, but have never played it. My nieces and nephews used to love playing it when they spent the night at my house in the mid 90's. I have a few other VCR based games including Clue, The 3 Stooges and Classic Commercials which I bought specifically for the commercials which turned out to not be that classic.
