4 Nin Uchi Mahjong / F1 Race / Pac-Man / Xevious retrospective: Pac'n heat | NES Works Gaiden #021

Watch on Youtube

Youtube Video Description:

Two Nintendo games and two Namco (Namcot??) titles this week to bring Famicom's 1984 lineup streaking toward its finale. I'm not sure any of these games will set anyone's heart on fire here in 2021, due to (1) the kinda mundane nature of Nintendo's releases and (2) overexposure to Namco's games. But pretend you are a small child in 1984! In that context, these games are pretty great. Except Mahjong. No child wants that.
