Sure you consider yourself a retro 8-bit gaming geek, but have you played Udon Boy in Ramen Land, or Kung Fu Psycho Rider? Don't feel bad, they're from Japanese culture store Meteor's annual Famicase, an exhibition of imaginary games.

Neat! But my favorite fake video game of all time remains Videogame: The Movie: The Game.

Pshaw, fake games. I like my Space Invaders exact clone which plays great even on an 8088 as it was programmed in assembler language (I think, it has been a little while since I used it, but this post is a reminder to dig it up) and is something like 10K!

Did these fake games cost as much as Duke Nukem Forever to make?

Yes and yes.

I also consider myself a liar.

And a joker, a smoker and a midnight toker. I also play my music in the sun.

Is this where I mention how much I love Pirate Baby's Cabana Street Battle 2006

Great post. Needs a "whimsy" tag.
