Hello people of the internet, I need your help. I was trying to remember the name of an old show, can't even remember if its an anime or cartoon but I hope someone here knows it.

From what I can remember, the show had to do with a futuristic looking setting where the protagonist had to join in games that appeared as giant pillars of light from the sky for some reason. In part two of the show, the protagonists kid sidekick becomes the new protagonist as a much older man in what i think was a post-apocalyptic world and in the end meets back with the first protagonist and save the world by choosing not join the final game and thus restring the world to how it used to be.

I know, its a mouthful and i hope someone here knows it. Another important thing was that the characters looking more like cyborgs than human and the bad guys in the games were all robots.

Thats all i can remember, and thank you for taking your precious time on this

Sounds like Reboot:

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0108903/

It is available on Hulu:

FYI, question of this type should go here:

<3 much Reboot love.

I didn't realize it ever aired in the States but thats awesome. Oh the memories and all the computer references I never understood as a child. I watched it again a few years ago and was surprised by how many there actually were. And they aren't subtle references either, but then again that was back before we had a computer at home (I sound so old).
