Today’s Kids On Yesterday’s Games

Electronic Gaming Monthly shows the video games I used to play to some 10-13 year olds to get their reaction. They were not, um, overwhelmed.

Andrew: This is a lot like that game. Um, whatchamacallit?air hockey.

Sheldon: Except worse.

Becky: It looks like a Mario that got run over by a car.

Andrew: Really. I mean the man is almost flat.

Kirk: He’s only an inch tall. He’s a little short fat guy who eats way too much pizza.

EGM: Football. It’s one of the first great portable games.

Brian: I thought it was Run Away From the Dots.

Kirk: I’m sure everyone who made this game is dead by now.
