Year: 1984

Before we had Xbox Kinect, PlayStation Move and the Nintendo Wii, there was Photon. Originally, it was a line of toys that allowed players to shoot lasers at each other with the tagged player being the loser. The television show sort of followed the object of the toy game but was more story based. Horrible special effects, and clunky, ugly hardware was the death of the Photon show and made way for the birth of Lazer Tag.
