Re: Hugo


Indeed, many a time would the prompt come up on screen, the presenter and audience scream to press the button, and by the time the player had pressed the button, the prompt had already disappeared and they'd lost a life. The train game is the worst for that, because of the map at the side. If you've missed your cue, you can see the next train coming on the map, you know you're gonna die and you can't do anything about it. It must have really sucked when you were the one in that situation, being made to look stupid.

Yeah, there was indeed a delay. But it wasn't a huge delay at all. It's a second or so. I found an old article that said it was a second for analogue satellite. For cable or antenna viewers it should be less than a second. You can compare those to phoning somebody. You don't have huge delays there either. There are so many examples when people press the button basically the moment when the host told them do so.

But it always depends on where you live. If you have antenna or cable and don't close to a central distribution station, there could have been longer delays.

But still: you had quite some time to react on most games and the train game was far from being the worst. Most people made the mistake to look at Hugo, when you had to play it with the map.

As you can see: you were able to press the buttons at any time. So when you changed the track, you were already able to press for the next change. But people looked at the game itself and pressed shortly before they saw the switch. And that was too late.

And there were people who pressed any button that was on the screen. But I don't want to deny that there were people that had longer delays. There certainly were some of them who were a bit unlucky. But they weren't the majority.

And still: Even if it's just a second. It makes the game quite a bit harder to play.
