An arcade game originally released in 1981 by Atari. Tempest was a vector-based arcade game designed and programmed programmed by Dave Theurer where the player would control a small ship that moved around in a wireframe tunnel destroying oncoming space ships. Besides being one of the most popular Arcade games of all time, Tempest also left a few urban legends in it's wake, one of which was Polybius - An early beta of the game which caused Vertigo and Motion Sickness, and was supposedly part of a government test to brainwash America's youth.
I played Tempest up at Pinball Pete's the other day. I lost quickly.

The most beautiful girl in the world. She captures the essence of gorgeous in its entirety. She's everything you want in a girl and more. You couldn't find a girl better than her. She's the love of my life.
Talking to Tempest will keep you smiling the whole time.
