I started gaming with the NES. I had quite a few games back then which are now mostly forgotten. I remember I had a game called Totally Rad. I never finished it but I always liked it because the bosses filled the screen and you could use magic to turn into animals. Also the game is called Totally Rad.
Back then there was no internet and I never bought magazines so I chose every game based on the box art. Which is how I ended up with Super Turrican. Turrican was my Mega Man, I never finished it.
The mark of an incredibly well made game? I even love the things I hate about it. Rayman Origins is one of those games.
Being excited for Rayman Legends I recently went back to Rayman Origins with the aim of taking on the final level.
I recorded my efforts in this task counting up the number times I died. The following video contains edited footage of my run through the final level which in actuality took nearly an hour and a half. You'll also hear live commentary as I spout off thoughts about Rayman, Nintendo, Western film themes and those pesky game designers.
