...yes.

Okay.

So.

When I was a kid I had this Barbie game for the NES. I could never get past the second level, partly because the game was admittedly terrible (I was lucky if I even beat the first level), but mostly because, well...

In the second level you were Mermaid Barbie in the ocean for some reason. And I can't remember if it was a time limit or if you tried to backtrack, but pretty much if you took too long to keep moving this giant jellyfish would come up from behind you and start following you. And it was scary because this 8-bit version of the Jaws theme started playing when it appeared. The first time it happened to me, I was SO EXCITED because I was MERMAID BARBIE, and then... JELLYFISH AAAAH IT'S GONNA EAT ME. I was apparently so psychologically damaged that if I ever got the second level again I flat out turned the game off.

It was incredibly stupid. At least I could get my 8-bit mermaid fix from the Little Mermaid game. :U

Hey, when I was a kid I had a shitty Genesis Barbie game! Though from what I'm reading, it's not the same game. Though I'm sure they're both equally terrible. (I could never get past the third level...)

For some reason the music for the game over freaked me out as a four year old.

Oh, and don't feel bad. I used to run away screaming anytime someone started to play the Mystic Cave zone in Sonic 2. Not... sure why.
