Wacky Wednesday – Hellraiser (NES)

Modern Zorker writes, "Some things are such obviously bad ideas that we don’t even bother considering them unless it’s a matter of life and death. They aren’t things we have to consciously reject; without someone pointing them out, they’re not even going to pop up on our radar (which is why a guy can walk past a full sink a dozen times and fail to think “I should load the dishwasher”, but cannot resist the urge to check if the paint is still wet). So when gamers saw this ad in their favorite magazines back in the 1990s, we all did ‘duck face’ and uttered a collective “WTF?” of confusion. Because if any game didn’t belong on the NES, it was one based on Clive Barker’s Hellraiser, right?" (Retro)
