YMMV / Amiga Power

  • "Funny Aneurysm" Moment: In their early days, one of the magazine's many running jokes was to threaten people with clearly over-the-top punishments... which backfired in their review of the point-and-click game Universe, where Jonathan Nash suggested readers should get hold of the game's musician's address, go round to his house, and shoot his family. The musician himself read this and was quite upset by it, and in Britain that sort of thing tends to result in plain-clothes police officers with absolutely no sense of humour coming round for a chat if the target fails to see the funny side. Understandably, Nash didn't use the joke again.
