(Editor’s note: In this bi-weekly feature, Pixelitis staffer Matt Brown shares his “down the rabbit hole” look into gaming history. Having admittedly missed what many consider “classics,” join him as he dives in head first. We ask that you just be gentle with him.)
"Have you ever had delusions of grandeur? Lofty dreams and aspirations far beyond your perceived limitations? Have you ever watched Pinky and the Brain? I’ll be honest, that show was easily one of my favorite childhood indulgences. If only to have catchphrases that I could not speak out loud (“TROZ,” “NARF” and “ZORT”), I watched that show as much as possible. That and Freakazoid! because they’re both classics. So, yeah.
Sid Meier’s Civilization reminds me of Pinky and the Brain because I want to some day take over the world. The virtual world. In the game. Right."
