Once again, we can amuse ourselves with a play test of the gaming classics with the class of now: Child's Play Part II. The kids are still hugely unimpressed with the graphics -
EGM: Do you feel like you're in the middle of the Star Wars universe?
Parker: It feels like we're in some barely 3D universe.
Bobby: Maybe it feels like we're in the Star Wars universe where you can't see that well.
- but seem to be developing an appreciation for 'retro' games (The Legend of Zelda, in particular, comes off OK):
Garret: These graphics were actually cutting edge.
Bobby: If I could go back in time, I'd get a copy of Pong and this.
I suspect this is because many of the classics are now being recycled on their mobiles (Bobby: "I've played this on my cell phone.").
And parents can relax, too, because the kids seem to have no trouble distinguishing their games from reality:
EGM: So girls don't think [Link's] a hunk?
Dillon: Gosh no.
Rachel: I like actual humans better than videogame characters.
