Dear God I hope nobody has done this joke before but it’s the internet so it’s probably already been done forty eight billion times and everyone is going to sue me for all my internet money so please just let me know where I should send you my three dollars thanks.

OK, secret admission time. When I first played The Legend of Zelda: The Ocarina of Time, I spent the first three freaking hours searching for the sword in the maze near where you start. The N64 graphics were so bad, and my vision was so terrible that I completely missed the little entrance you needed to go into to find the damn thing. I thought the game had glitched and started to doubt Nintendo’s quality control department. D’oh!
I suck at video games, but I guess that’s not really a secret!
I recently started playing the remake of this on the 3DS, and it’s really lovely, but also has that whole ‘if you haven’t played the game in a while you have no idea what you’re meant to be doing’ thing that plagues all games that require an attention span longer than the average pop song.
Space Harrier was a pretty neat game, but I was always more interested in the freaky looking bad guys you shot at, and it introduced me to those Easter Island heads that are in every single video game ever made.
Anyway! This was a bit of a town bike of a game, everyone had a go at it. The various home conversions were a tech demo for the host machine, and I remember the MegaDrive version just throwing sprites around like nobody’s business. That was neat for the fifteen minutes before I realised that Space Harrier is a pretty boring affair when you’re being asked to spend $80 to buy the home version.
Holy crap I spent $80 on Space Harrier? Yeeesh I was a moron when I was a kid.
