It's..... The happiest blog on earth



Friday

A brilliant cultural expose from Electronic Gaming Monthly. Yes, the video game magazine... They sicced smart-allecky teenagers onto the most popular videogames of previous generations. No matter what the game, 25 years of change brought devastating put-downs and genuine bewilderment....

Pong. ("My line is so beating the heck out of your stupid line.")

Donkey Kong. ("How can you die from a fall of a whopping 3 inches?")

Handheld football. ("I thought it was Run Away From the Dots.")


I admit I had a twinge of bittersweet nostalgia when they got around to Space Invaders. The teenagers' comment?

"I'm sure everyone who made this game is dead by now."
