I am puzzled by the constant references I see so many of you making to things like Sonic, Mario, Zelda, etc. Most of you don't strike me as being old enough to have enjoyed those things in their heyday, and I seriously doubt that all of you own vintage gaming consoles or care enough to be playing these games via emulation. So what gives? How did the icons of the 8 bit age manage to become blips on your presumably young radar screens? And what's with all the Pokemon references? I'm too old to have ever gotten into Pokemon, but the say some people say things like, "A wild Snorlax appears," I get the feeling Pokemon is some kind of cherished memory from their childhood, something that really resonates for them. How is it possible to be into something as shitty as Pokemon? I was into some shitty things when I was a child, but never anything that shitty.
