Alright guys n gals, I’m about to splatter your mind grapes with this but here goes: I wasn’t ALWAYS the gregarious, outgoing guy I pretend to be on the internet. In fact, I spent a large (LARGE) chunk of my early teens obessing over the minutae of Forgotten Realms novels, comic book crossovers and especially video games. Don’t get me wrong, I love a solid Street Fighter II iteration and I was borderline crazed about Mortal Kombat. And yet….every so often a sports game (NHLPA HOCKEY ’94 NEVER DIE!) or its ilk would find it’s way into my Super Nintendo. But even I don’t know how I came to not only play, but come to deeply love…a Japanese business management game revolving around the airline business? Fuckin’ beats me bro, but that’s what it was. Or rather, this is what it was:
For real, just kick back, hit play on the embedded video and in about 30 minutes, get ready to
start googling SNES emulator and Aerobiz (ed.note: Modern Borefare in NO WAY endorses intellectual property theft.). OK so our in-house counsel has some issues with my last statement so here goes instead: just hop on eBay and pick up a used SNES (under $60, probably) and a copy of the game then prepare yourself for the high stakes world of business administration! Who needs an MBA anyway?
(if you’re interested, there are SIX other videos in this series. This first 37 minutes is just a TEASE.)
Also: I completely forgot this was multiplayer. Probably because a total number of zero people wanted to play this with me.
