This doesn’t really explicitly have anything to do with Mystery Science Theater 3000. However, the premise and nature of this video game may be appealing to a number of MSTies out there, and I felt it was worth mentioning.
Recently released for the Nintendo DS handheld system, Retro Game Challenge is based around the premise of a “Game Master” trapping gamers in the past and making them play old video games. As The A.V. Club pointed out, this just smacks of our favorite show. Kind of. The games they’re playing aren’t bad, per se… but give me a break. I like video games and I wanted to post something. Work with me!
I know that there are a fair number of MSTies out there who are also gamers, as well as currently non-gaming MSTies who grew up playing old NES games. So, if nothing else, this might be an amusing trip down memory lane.
