Nintendo is RUINING AMERICA'S YOUTH! (In 1991, that is.):

Jonah Falcon
It's 1991 and Nintendo is ruining America's youth.

Can you say "Glurge"? I knew you could.

Well, I never played console games in 1991. I was Amiga and PC - and I turned out FINE!!!!

Don't let it die
I was born in 1994, so I recall Sony ruining my youth. Of course, I've become more of a Nintendo person since then.

I honestly don't understand what the point was behind that story.

The Super NES was the console of my youth. Ahh, so many great memories...

Jonah Falcon
Atari 2600 and ColecoVision were the consoles of my youth.

And this was close to the time where people (and especially politicians) thought that Night Trap encouraged sexual harassment and violence towards women.

Some things never change...

Oh, I meant the cruddy, poorly done news broadcast not the internet article. No, the internet article was well made and intelligent.

And you can't mix and match.

But it's worth it. It offers better adventure, and F-Zero lets you know your status.
I have a message from another time...

I love retro New Media Are Evil videos like this one. Just goes to show that no matter the decade, some people are going to get bent out of shape over ridiculous stuff.

Avvie-free for life!
I wonder if there are modern New Media Are Evil that decry the games of today for steering impressionable children towards conservative values. That would be a hoot.

Bitter person in the shadows....
It looks like even the news reporters weren't taking it seriously. I wonder what these people would think of today's Nintendo wrecking children with Wii Us.

[up][up] Well, there are those holocaust games in which you have to get the Jews burned as quickly as possible - those games label it as fiction, since, of course, the Holocaust never happened.

Also, you seems to have a bit of problem with your thing huh Jonah? Sounds problematic in normal life...
