I've wanted to make a video game based PIL/YT style thread for some time now, so here it is. Kicking it off with this video:

I want Jimmy Fallon to be dead. That doesn't make me a bad person.

You know, there's something I'm kinda curious about. In all the legend of Zeldas, the sword's picture that's used seems to be a short sword instead of the full length. Anyone know why that is?

I remember Abadox! Were it released now, it would probably push an M-Rating from all the gore.

Tecmo World Wrestling was amazing. I remember it, really, as the first "deep" wrestling game I'd ever played after the standard Pro Wrestling fare. This was one of those games that I saw in Nintendo Power as a kid, one time, and then constantly read and re-read the preview until I ended up getting it from my parents for X-Mas.

Back of the box:

I remember EGM or maybe Gamepro getting some angry parent letters over that Saturn ad.  One of my favorite "great tits" old school game ads came from POD Speedzone.  Can't find a scan of it anywhere though.

Clearly they were angry that the ad didn't contain more examples of the AWESOME TRIPLE 32-BIT PROCESSING POWER of the all-mighty Sega Saturn.

Funny, I almost posted the Saturn ad but was thinking "should I spoiler tag this as possibly unsafe for work?", then I just moved on. I seem to recall another ad like that one for a Midway or Acclaim game but I can't remember what.

That FF3 commercial kicks so much ass!  Don't know how I missed that one growing up.  Weird to see a Mog not going KUPO all the time.

I hadn't played any Final Fantasy games when I first saw that commercial, so it and the game's cover made me think the moogle was the game's main character. How surprised I was.

As a young SNES loyalist, I enjoyed Nintendo's advertorials they ran in 1994 to defend themselves against Sega's onslaught of attack ads.  They really cut through the bullshit and marketing hype to make the case for why they were the better system.  It was like the gaming equivalent of Clinton's convention speech.

I had this stupid thing. The speakers were ok, but everything else was pretty crappy. The magnifying glass didn't help, it was too dark, and the controller part was awful.
