Who Would Have Thought Skiing Down a Mountain Would be so Damn Hard

Total RecallTotal RecallTotal Recall is a look back at the history of video games through their characters, franchises, developers and trends.

It's Thursday, which means it's time for another instalment of grown men playing competitive, mostly awful arcade classics for nothing but internet fame.

In tonight's episode, the boys are facing off on Alpine Ski, a Taito game first released all the way back in 1981. Which kicks their ass like only a senior citizen of the gaming world can.

I'm sorry, but I know this game came out way before (about a decade), but this is the only skiing game that matters [ski.ihoc.net]

And it has a very interesting reason why it never saw rerelease up updates. (Though I hear Amped used it's engine) ;D

edit: if you follow the link, there is a version that will work on all operating systems.

Hint: Press F (learned that one out of childhood frustration).
