Now this is a review on Mortal Kombat that this guy, Sizzler07 on youtube did. This has got to be the worst video game review of a video game that ive ever seen! I dont even think that he has even played the game before he turned the camera on himself! He says that the game shouldnt have ever been ported from the arcade. He also has done a Contra review that was even removed because he bashed the game so heavily that people were creating so many video responses and flaming his review. The MK review pissed me off so badly, and it may even piss off some of the most hardcore MK fans. Anyway, just watch it.

     This game will just about get a horrible review anywhere you go. The controls are crappy in the rally races, and even worse when you get to the side-by-side races! In the rally races, the controls are pretty straightforward (A - Accel. B - Special Weapon; Left/Right - Steering; Up - Nitro). When you get to the side-by-side races, the controller is just too damn hard to use. I swear that the people that made the game (Acclaim), must have thought that they needed to use every damn button on the controller, with the exception of the start and select buttons. You have to use the B button for Gas, and the A button for the Transmission Shifting. At the same time that you are accelerating and shifting, you have to simultaneously press left and right on the d-pad to get the damn monster truck moving!
     Also, between side-by-side races (which consist of Mud Race, Pull-Off, Car Crunch, and 1 drag race in the last race of the game), you have to use the money that you start with and the money that you earn from winning other races and rallies to buy parts for your truck.
     And one of the worst things is what happens with the CPU opponent. When you start the game, you play as the driver of Bigfoot up against a green truck called the Growler. Both the P1 and CPU start with 5000 dollars. If at any point the Growler runs out of money and then crashes in a rally, the game ends for that truck. But, they will automatically put in a new truck that is yellow, called the Charger.
     The shit of that is the fact that they give the truck 5 grand, AND doesnt have to buy any new parts for the other races. Now i got the game, simply cuz im a Monster Truck fan, but i CANNOT play this game for more than 5 minutes before i get pissed off and have to turn it off!
     I have to say that this game has got to be one of the worst games in the NES library. I cannot find even one redeeming quality about it.

I was just playing Super Mario Bros. on my NES about id say about 15-20 minutes ago, and something truly screwed up happened. Now just about everyone on this site knows of the classic 99 lives, turtle shell hopping trick, in world 3-1. Well i was playing and pulled off the trick about, id say, at least 15 times until the time ran out. Then i came back and did it for another 10 times, then just finished off the level. I started up level 3-2, didnt get too far, and then fell off of a platform and died. Then somehow, i got a fucking GAME OVER! Now how in the world did i get a game over?!?!?!? I had to have had at least 60 or 70 lives left! Is there something wrong with the trick or did something just fuck up? Has anyone else ever experienced this?

Now i realize that there are probably hundreds of thousands of gamers my age in high school, but I think that i am a big exception to all of em. Now most of my friends that are my age are the guys that have the PS3, 360 or Wii, especially my best friend, who has a Wii and 360. i am not like any of them. Most of my friends think that i am strange because the most current console that i have is an old xbox. But i actually dont care for most of the next-gen games. In my room, i have the old games. Even my xbox collection has 4 of the games that have 20 or more old skool games. The systems i prefer to play are the Atari 2600, NES, SNES, and Genesis. I mean, i grew up playing the 16-bit games. I grew up playing the SNES and Genesis. I grew up with games like Super Mario World, Super Star Wars, Super Mario All-Stars, and DKC. And strangely, as i got older, i was introduced to 8-bit systems. I first played the NES when i was 8 years old, and back during the winter, my dad gave me his 2600 stuff that he had at the time. It has then since grown by about 20 or 30 games since then. And also, 1 year ago, i bought my own NES. Now my NES and 2600 collections combined have over 100 games.
