How come they released 4 shit games starring Bubsy? who kept buying those games to make 4 of them? which other series got an awful lot of iterations inverselly proportional to its quality?
This little turd right here, i remember when my brother bought this when it was just released. Then we got home and he tried it, I felt sorry for him because he spent his savings on this. Later i learned that wasn't even Alfreds first game. Can't even believe someone thought this so good character it needed multiple games.
In 1993, platformers weren't doing so hot. The ones that sold well were all licensed. Tiny Toon Adventures, DuckTales, Mickey Mouse, The Lion King.
The genius of Accolade was to elevate Bubsy to the status of a "classic" cartoon character. They made the Bubsy games feel like a videogame tie-in to a cartoon that was never made (outside of the pilot).
I kind of like him, but I loathe the games.
That was 1991. Things changed in the years afterwards.
Read a gaming magazine from around the time Bubsy came out. Everyone talked about fighting games, nobody really gave a shit about platformers.
>I want him to shut the hell up.
listen to the first minute or so
His games are pretty bad, but Bubsy is a meme series. I don't like using "meme" as an adjective, but it's true. They're games people love to hate, like E.T, Desert Bus and Superman 64.
Most people know about Bubsy through Seanbaby, JonTron and bubsy3d.com.
That cant be nearly as bad as this?
>They're games people love to hate, like E.T, Desert Bus and Superman 64.
Not everybody shares your opinion though. I played the shit out of Bubsy on the Genesis as a kid and really enjoyed it, enough to actually track down a copy years later.
omg I haven't looked at this in like, over a decade. thx anon. He definitely laid the groundwork for every videogame list and eceleb to follow, but he was damn good at it and hilarious at the time
I'm still waiting on a Youtube reviewer to review Quest 64 so I can get legions of idiots telling me I didn't play it when it came out and am just echoing someone else's opinion.
Mediocre first game, terrible sequels that were unnecessary.
Forced meme character who felt like ironic shitposting in 90's cartoon form.
I tried Shaq-Fu, and while it wasn't the worst thing ever, everything about the game was painfully mediocre. The graphics are really nice and all, but the gameplay is a snooze-fest.
I like Shaq though, he's a precious cinnamon bun. Who can resist the bright smile of that gentle giant?
This, Christ, suddenly I can't shit on a bad game because someone made a YouTube video.
Fuck that guy who said NES Dragon's Lair is good, I'm still mad at him.
