A Retro Video Game Tribute to Larry Hagman with Dallas Quest

By November 24, 2012

Dallas Quest ScreenshotWhile he never lent his voice to any video games, Larry Hagman was as important to retro pop-culture as video arcades, the Atari 2600, and the Commodore 64. His performance as J.R. Ewing, oil tycoon, fortunate son, and foil of the Ewing clan on the prime-time soap Dallas, sealed his name in history as an icon of the '80s.

Thanks to Hagman, Dallas became so popular that in 1984 computer game developer Datasoft based a graphical adventure game on the show.

In honor of the late, great, Larry Hagman, we take a trip to Southfork and begin the Dallas Quest Adventure.
