Old Nintendo game translations were fun!

Return to the days of bad Nintendo grammar

The adorable (and undeniably Canadian) Rinry used to be able to pump out fun, nostalgic videos at a fairly decent clip. But ever since she became a mommy, she hasn't had as much time for video production. 'Tis a shame, 'cause her stuff is still the best!

In this little throwback, Rinry reminisces about the old days of poor English translations on the NES, SNES, and Game Boy. Some notable cases -- like FFIV's "You spoony bard!" and Metal Gear's "I feel asleep!" -- have become quite popular over time. Others -- like the grammar nightmare of the original Zelda's opening text -- have been cleaned up in subsequent releases.

I loved all those little hiccups in games! Made them feel genuine in a way, like the scrawny kid in PE who always comes up short in the fitness exam but still gives it his best every time.
