JimmyTwoBucks Posted July 2, 2014 Report Share Posted July 2, 2014 Don't know how many here have heard of the Angry Video Game Nerd (James Rolfe), but he reviews old games, mainly NES and other consoles (and has a movie coming out later this year)... I enjoy a lot of his stuff and I actually prefer his "out of character" stuff where he's just himself and plays games with his friend Mike... they play NES, Atari, and all kinds of old consoles: http://cinemassacre.com/category/jamesandmike/ Anyway, I had never seen them play a point-and-click game before, but I assumed they knew about them and liked them because they like humorous things, and some of the funniest games are point-and-clicks... So in the most recent video they played Maniac Mansion for the NES (I wasn't even aware that it came out on the NES!) and they have their other friend, Bootsy, playing through it as it's his favorite NES game: http://cinemassacre.com/2014/06/30/maniac-mansion-nes-james-mike-mondays/ Though I was very surprised that James and Mike didn't really "get" adventure games... they seemed confused the whole way through and can't seem to grasp why anyone would like this kind of game. I was sort of under the impression that anyone who grew up playing games during that time period would know, and be pretty into, adventure games, but I guess not! I remember Maniac Mansion being particularly difficult even on a computer, so maybe that game put them off playing them in general...
