Number of games on this list I have ever played: one

From Debby, a list of the 50 worst video game titles. (Honestly, I kind of want to try #11.) As for the best video game title, it's no contest as far as I'm concerned: it's Deadly Rooms of Death all the way!

I speculate that, had it not become a household name and therefore achieved normalcy, Donkey Kong might have made such a list.

Speaking of which, is anyone else out there old enough to remember if their first reaction upon hearing there was a big new movie out called Star Wars was "What a retarded name for a movie?"

I actually consider #32 one of the best side-scroller games ever written, but yeah, the title, yikes.

And I guessed #11 would be on there! (Again, an addictive game that is weird enough to be funny.)

I think there's a Japanese game called Slap Fighter, but am not 100% sure.

I *totally* loved #7. I had this bootleg Japanese cartridge that had 101 games on it (for my 8-bit Nintendo console), and that was far and away the most fun. Man, that game sucked.

The one I've played is #47, Jumpman. A great little game along the lines of Lode Runner, except with...um...jumping.

"Jumpman" was also, of course, the original name of Mario. (Arcade Donkey Kong instruction: "Jump button makes Jumpman jump.")

It's all one beautiful, interconnected tapestry, I tell you.

I think I could get my brother to part with his copy of Mr. Domino. You got anything to play it on?

Also, the most glaring omission? "Freddy Pharkas: Frontier Pharmacist"
