Pissed myself laughing when JSS goes into one about those lemons.

S/he should just "leave" it alone!

Definitely a good point being made - people really do look too much at the small things, that they miss the bigger picture.

I know they do go on a bit but I just find sarcasm highly hilarious.

I've seen worse videogame lemons -


Fruit Machine Amstrad CPC

Yeah, OK, it was from the 8-bit days, but there are better lemons on show here in this CPC fruit machine game -

Yep!, Amsoft made some bad lemons.

I can understand homebrew/type-in games being less than good, but the first fruit machine game above was done by Amsoft and sold for £7-£8. The second game by CodeMasters was £2...

Anyway, the vid was good. Loved the weird horse bit, as that really was a lovely, unexpected scene in the game. And then came the fucking monkeys!!!!

I used to love making Fruit Machines, up until... well, pretty much the Jimquisition! Once they started to bang on about gambling addiction being a problem, even without the actual gambling, my mind took quite a detour and I haven't done anything gambling-like since.

Which is annoying, because having a name like mine really lends itself to that type of game.
