In talking with people I have realized that most, if not all, of us have unexplainable memories from our childhoods. Strange things. Hazy scenes from movies and TV shows that don't quite make sense after all these years. One memory that never escapes me is playing Ecco the Dolphin for my Sega Genesis.
Yes, some Sega executive thought it would be a good idea to make a game about a Dolphin swimming through the ocean.
Yes, my parents saw the box for the dolphin game...and bought it for their 5 year old son.
What terrible ideas! (Sorry mom, I know you read this)
To top off the weird/uninteresting concept of the game the developers made it brutally difficult. I never got past the second level. But I've been told that the game starts to get really weird strange! The dolphin starts flying into space to fight space jelly fish. Weird stuff. There was even two sequels.
Someday I'd like to give Ecco another shot...not today though.
