    I was wondering if anyone knew what real games inspired (or are most like) the fake games on Retro Game Challenge.

    I haven't played it in awhile.
    Galaga, and Dragon Quest came to mind.

    I asked a friend and she told me to google it. I have and have come up with this. Would you say this is a good approximation?

    Cosmic Gate - Galaga
    Guadia Quest - Dragon Quest or Final Fantasy
    Rally King and Rally King SP - Micro Machines
    Robot Ninja Haggle Man and Robot Ninja Haggle Man 2 - Ninja Kid
    Star Prince - Alpha Mission

    Haggle Man is a mistranslation, if anything. Doesn't haguru mean "gear", so it should have been Gear Man.

    Unless Haggle was written in Hiragana or Katakana or whatever it is where you just romanize it and you're good to go.

    I thought something didn't make sense when I was watching Ninja Kid videos. As it turns out though, Ninja kun was localized as Ninja Kid too. I just happened to get the wrong Ninja Kid. :(

    Wait, you had to ask a friend before thinking about Google?

    Sorry, this is Alessa's thread, so I can't even begin to wonder what the answer to that question is.

    However, I know she's horrible at parody-placing. She originally thought Guadia Quest was a parody of Digital Devil Story: Megami Tensei.

    You are supposed to use different accounts for different people.

    I've told her that countless times, but she "forgets" and posts through my account anyway.

    I really should, but she doesn't do this kind of stuff too often to begin with. In fact, I think this was the first time she didn't even remotely try to pretend she was me.

    You can get more insight to the games if you watch the original show Game Center CX. There are segments where they discuss the production of the game.
    In episode 48:

    Plus, Game Center CX is just plain fun to watch. Arino is my hero.

    Regarding the Haggle Man translation, this was an in joke from the localization team. Because that's EXACTLY the sort of weird "translation" that used to happen back in the day.
