  1. I've been going through and playing random bullshit from my childhood. One of the games I used to play was Lego Island 2, and it's so much worse than I remember it. I just want to kill the player character he annoys me that much. I can't find a copy of Lenny's Music Toons, but oh well.

    I also remember some weird overhead grid based game with a tropical theme that had something to do with spelling and collecting letters. In the corner of the screen there was some weird old islander guy that would comment on shit. Anyone know what this one is? I think it might've been on some demo disc, with a demo of some DOS Lord of the Rings RPG on it as well.

      I totally understand, but for me, it seems I more have the opposite problem. There are plenty of games that I just despised as a kid, but now, decades later, I can really appreciate them. For instance, I hated Metroid when I first played it - I played it a lot, but I never had any idea what I was doing. After developing better spatial reasoning skills, though, the game felt so much less like a pointless maze and I finally beat it. The Mega Man franchise is also a series that I never liked as a kid, but I never really appreciated it until well into my 20s. As a kid, I never saw the patterns, never saw that everything was about timing. I thought in terms of "run blindly ahead and blow up everything you can," like how you play Contra, for instance, and I failed miserably. Honestly, in some ways I feel like it wasn't until I played Guitar Hero that I really got the point of Mega Man, and now I love the games, especially 2.

      The only difference I notice when I'm playing something from my childhood is that games were a lot harder than I remember them to be.

      That's called arthritis, my man!
