What’s your favorite game that shouldn’t be mentioned on a podcast about games? Best Games Ever? If you can grasp that concept, you are already ahead of our regular panel.
Some of the worst video games ever created are also some of the most interesting. Take Night Trap for example. It’s arguably the most important game in the history. In congressional hearings, it was revealed that it was a peeping tom simulator, where the player spied a house of teenage girls who were having a sleepover using a bank (of extremely poor quality) video feeds. Night Trap’s goal was to save girls from vampires or something. It doesn’t matter though, because not many people played it.
It’s interesting that this moral panic caused such a stir in the US, that it led to the creation of age rating systems for video games. This is a significant step in the evolution of video games, as it’s now accepted that the audience is not just made up of impressionable kids. This means that we can now play mature, adult games like The Last of Us which involves headshotting zombies, and chucking blocks.
