Before CDs and DVDs we had interactive VHS games playable on a VCR (videocassette recorder). The tapes themselves were not interactive, however players could start the video then play along with a boardgame or a card game. As technology got better, players could shoot at the television screen with a light gun while an attached console would keep score (ex. Action Max).

Below is a list of some of the VHS games we've come across:

Action Max: .38 Ambush Alley
