Gaming Ads: GameStar

GameStar was founded by Scott Orr in 1982 and sold to Activision in 1986. It specialized in sports games, developing and publishing at least one tennis, boxing, baseball, football, basketball, hockey, golf, wrestling, and racing game. While GameStar might not be too well known today, Scott Orr is as he was contracted to re-design the first John Madden Football game for Sega Genesis. Of course, that game was a huge success and Electronic Arts hired him shortly after that where he worked on many EA Sports games before leaving the company in 2001.
