Crime Wave, directed by John Paizs, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1985 while The Talisman by Stephen King and Peter Straub was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Half Nelson. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Beach Head II: The Dictator Strikes Back or Gunfright.
