“Strong Bad’s Cool Game For Attractive People” episode 5 “8 bit is enough” is probably the best video game parody?

what makes it really stand above the rest is it’s not like “oh look a mario reference, and a final fantasy joke, look it’s a zeldaaaa”

it’s more, like, jokes ABOUT video games a whole and i think that’s cool?

there’s stuff like:

“strongbad has to change enemy coding patterns”

“the characters from the top down game is hard to see in a 3d world because he’s like a paper on the ground”

“strongbad has to deal with region locking”

“a world that’s just a jab at liscenced games like yo! noid and cool spot”

“strongbad’s ultimate form is in ps1 graphics"

ofc there’s specific references to Donkey Kong and such but there’s a lot more clever gaming jokes here than any other parody 

I love how Coach Z’s head just kinda .. does whatever while he’s talking. fgsgdbfjd

But when I think about me and Coach Z interacting I tend to think about him talking more like how he does in Strong Bad’s Cool Game for Attractive People.

Buuuut there is something Fucking Hilarious about picturing me n Coach Z gettin close n cozy together and him tryin to sweet talk me but suddenly his head whips around 180 degrees for a split second and the brim of his hat smacks me full force in the jaw.
