It's too bad that game on the Master System was kind of terrible. And that's really a shame when you think about it. A good A.L.F game made by a great company like Capcom or Konami and on the NES would have more than likely done very well imho, given how wildly popular the sitcom was back in the day.

Okay, here is one that is kind of funny:

This is Donkey Kong on the Colecovision - See DK?

Here is DK on the rather shoddy Intellivision port. Its so bad, even DK is feeling a bit green with nausea.

And here is a fellow playing an Intellivision ... notice his T-shirt!

Given the T-shirt, I suspect this is a modern photo, but I also see a small CRT in the background - so, is this a modern photo of a retrogamer, or an old photo with a clever T-shirt from back in the day? Live or Memorex? You make the call.

That's def a modern pic. The "serial killer" look is acceptable nowadays. Back in the 70's or 80's he would have terrified peeps!

And from the movie 1984 Firestarter, a young Drew Barrymore playing a Colecovision

How old were they in that pic? They look like they're barely in their teens!
