Child's Play

Oh man this hurts to think about. Modern 8–12 year olds commenting on the games we played back in the mid 70’s. Oh, if you’re half a generation or so back from me they ripped pretty hard on games of the 80’s too.

“Niko: Hey? Pong. My parents played this game.

“Brian: It takes this whole console just to do Pong?…

“John: I’d sooner jump up and down on one foot. By the way, is this supposed to be tennis or Ping-Pong?

“Tim: My line is so beating the heck out of your stupid line. Fear my pink line. You have no chance. I am the undisputed lord of virtual tennis. [Misses ball] Whoops.

“John: Tim, how could you miss that? It was going like 1 m.p.h.”
