Stupid Attempts at Video Game Mascots: Bubsy

GamePlox: It would be ignorant of me to rattle off the long-winded historical context that surrounds the infamous video game character that is Bubsy, at least with any heir of decency. Countless gamers have critiqued Accolade’s furry fiend, labeling him as nothing short of an over-produced marketing ploy that starred in some pretty terrible games. Those people are right in their judgement, and me attempting to seriously convey the story of Bubsy isn’t going to do anything relevant to what’s already been discussed for years.

Instead, I’m going to write about what a piece of sh*t Bubsy is, and what exactly makes the moronic mascot a figure of such simultaneous humor and hatred in the industry. Sure, me telling you that Bubsy is a freaking scourge isn’t going to be very insightful or relevant to anything either, but it’s going to be way more fun. (Accolade, Culture)
