If you at all experienced childhood in the 80s and 90s and didn’t play Nintendo, specifically the Mega Man franchise, it could be argued that you, in fact, had no childhood. (You can spitefully share this article with your parents later and say something like, “Did you guys really love me at all?!”)
The “Mega Man” games were really some of the first of its kind. It followed the adventures of mechanical hero Mega Man, a blue-armored android with an arm cannon and the ability to take the special power of each boss robot he destroys. These bosses each had their own levels, minions and personality, all following a similar theme related to their name — “Metal Man,” “Spark Man” and “Gravity Man,” just to name a few.
Comedians Asterios Kokkinos and Paige Weldon reimagined these villains for a new book, not as enemies of your video game-obsessed childhood, but instead as enemies of your 20s, perhaps the most evil of all.
We’re talking about those people who would constantly borrow money from you, or couldn’t stop talking about the fact that their dog was a rescue, or that insisted they just did drugs “casually.”
It’s a nostalgic look back at the people who shaped your 20s using the game that shaped your childhood.
