1up.com has a feature up delving into the History of Video Game Cartoons
, from the quirky Q-Bert to the much maligned Captain N. From the article: "Memories, however, can be problematic. Even when they're good, they can still suck pretty bad. Take, for example, your first ride on a two-wheeler bike. You experienced a short thrill of speed and independence, and then took a nasty spill, tore the seat of your pants to reveal your underwear to your childhood crush, and then likely started crying like a little girl."
So true, so true.
