YMMV: Pole Position

The video game

  • Memetic Mutation: The overly-enthusiastic race car driver from the Atari 2600 game's commercial shouting "Oh no you ain't...you're gonna play POLE POSITION!"
    • To a lesser extent, "Prepare to qualify."
  • Most Annoying Sound:
    • The overly-enthusiastic race car driver from the Atari 2600 game's commercial makes for an incredibly annoying mic spam. (Turn down your volume if you value your hearing)
    • The explosion sound that happens when your car bursts into pieces from hitting a sign or another car.
  • Seinfeld Is Unfunny: In 1981, the game was truly ahead of its time, being the first driving game in three dimensions. But it has since been usurped by newer racing games that refine the genre further and are far more popular; Pole Position's lack of proper racing mechanics (such as positions) and extremely annoying crash mechanics means that few players see it as a great game anymore.
