Crossfire

This is my happiest memory from childhood:



It's not the game itself - which is basically just Hungry Hungry Hippos, except reversed - that makes me happy, but the commercial, and the kickass music. Oh, and the deep back story: "It's some time in the future, blah blah, etc. Here's an explosion."

Then there's the 90s version:



Which supports a scientific theory I'm developing, that has the surprising hypothesis that the first few years of the 90s were actually much, much more retarded than the entire decade of the 80s.

The best, however, is this modern reinterpretation of the song:



That dude is my hero.

In support of your theory, I submit: Vanilla Ice.

I also just e-mailed you something that made me LOL in the '90s.

What's awesome is when I started to read this post, I immediately started signing out loud - "Crossfirrrrrrrrrrre". Great memories...

What was disappointing though, was the first time I had an opportunity to play the game, the only thought I had was "wow, this is a cheap piece of plastic crap"...
