Child’s Play Part II

By on December 27, 2004

Last November, EGM got together a bunch of 11 and 12-year-olds and asked them their opinions of Pong, Space Invaders, and other games from our youth. Needless to say, they weren’t kind.

EGM has done it again this year, with entertaining results.

The kids were harsh:

EGM: Before this came out in compilations, we used to put quarters in arcade machines.

Parker: You wasted quarters on this?

EGM: Yeah.

Parker: That’s so sad.

They nailed a few things, though:

EGM: Do you know that in these types of games, people spend hours and hours trying to break world records.

Parker: Like that guy who beat Pac-Man? With the long beard?

Garret: Billy Mitchell.

EGM: What do you think of him?

Parker: He’s a complete loser. Doesn’t he have a mullet?

Garret: That’s bad.

Dillon: What a freak.
