best/worst video game-related items

Post by anubis » Mon Apr 03, 2006 10:22 pm

All right gamers.

From time to time the Nintendo Cereal theme song pops into my head (Nin-Ten-Do, its a cereal wow!). Ahh Nostalgia. Which got me thinking what were the best and worst video game-related, but not video game, things. Personally,

Best: Donkey Kong "piggy" bank - It was rad, you put a penny in at the top at it rolled down the ramps and you had to jump Mario over it. I had it when I was 5 or 6.

Worst: Super Mario Bros. movie - Bob Hoskins, John Legiuzamo, and Dennis Hopper and the movie still stunk. The worst thing is that people still cannot get the video game/movie right (who couldn't tell that Doom wasn't going to be cheese).

Lets here some more.
A gun rack... a gun rack. I don't even own *a* gun, let alone many guns that would necessitate an entire rack. What am I gonna do... with a gun rack?

Best: Those Plastic sleaves you can store NES games in

Worst: the fact the market is over whelmed with sequels that a new idea dont have a snowballs chance in hell, to get out to be a great game.

Oh, another great thing (though probably not the best) is controller backwards-compatability, like the PS1/PS2. I don't know any other systems that did that, but it was genious.

Yeah except there were a bunch of games(mostly newer ones 04-05 and beyond) that won't recognize a PS1 dual analog controller, or if it does certain actions won't work(usually shoulder buttons).

Best: Clam shell designs, keeping my screens in perfect condition
Worst: Non-rechargable batteries. oh how many hours i spent searching my house for some AA batteries.
SNESp - 100%
Protable X - 15% - I need money :(
