Gunstar Heroes, developed by Treasure and released in 1993 for the Sega Genesis is an amazing video game. One of the best ever, to be more specific. In fact, there was a study by world-renowned awesomologist Alejandir P. Feelgüd that found Gunstar Heroes contained more radness per second than had ever been recorded at that time. It has it all: explosions, an endless army of robots to fuel said explosions, customizable weapons, anime art style, solid co-op play and rockin’ 16-bit tunes. It also had awesome bosses with hilarious names. This is their tribute.
Look at how I’m holding the controller in that picture. Look at it. Isn’t it awful? It’s like looking at someone wiping their mouth with the Mona Lisa. Is that hyperbole? I don’t care. It’s gross and even just holding the controller like that to take a picture for this article made me feel like an awful person.
I was reading an article on Kotaku about the DualShock 3 and in the comments people were talking about holding controllers with their index fingers AND middle fingers on the shoulder buttons, using only their ring fingers and pinkies to actually hold the dang thing. Yuck.
