The Super Nintendo!

If only the parents from that therapy session could see the world of today...

Edgey, Gumshoe, Godot, Sissel, Larry, then Mia, Franziska, Maggie, Kay and Lynne.

I'm throwing my money at the screen but nothing happens!

Lol at the therapist telling them to direct their anger at the manufacturer, like they should even be angry in the first place that technological advancement happens.

Certain parents being stupid is not anything new. What I want to know is, wtf was with the part with F-Zero? That is like some bizarre parody of bad special effects.

Funny how he likened being good at a video game meaning 'being a 9 or 10 year old'. Oh if he had said something that stupid today...

I make Pixel Art on occasion.

Eh. My thought on spoilers is if its shown in an advertisement, its not a spoiler.

Oh my gosh, look at that hair!
Oh, and the Nintendo charged money for the SNES because it was pretty darn expensive back in the day (even if they were making a good profit on the device).

And yeah, gaming has made huge strides in how games are as well as in how the general populace percieves them.

@moomoo Did you SEE the video LJM posted? :O
It's madness.

I used to travel the stars, then I discovered Earth, and these incredibly addicting things called 'Video Games.'
And they said you couldn't buy happiness!

I know if you accuse a game of being stranger danger bait, do it right

It doesn't change the fact that video games are being discussed as art now, that eSports is an actual thing (that is growing, by the way), that there are games being made exclusively for adults, and that a lot of people are no longer seeing video games simply as toys (most likely because many people who grew up playing video games still play them, thus meaning a good number of adults actually know about the subject now).

Yes, the video is madness, but news channels haven't really been very accurate or knowledgeable about video games in the first place.

It just shows that instead of actually researching such things, they much prefer to show it as breaking news and hope that they dont get called out on all their mistakes...

But really, it seems as this topic is rather a joke, so I treated it as such. :P

I'm always serious.

Oh, and I suggest you guys look through the comments on the second youtube video. Some of them are absolutely hilarious.
