Welp, I’m back. Sorry for the long wait. Vacation and such. Went pretty well, got some cheap souveniers, read a couple of great books, including The Guide To Classic Adventure Games from Hardcore Gaming 101. If you have a Kindle, pick it up. Lot of great coverage in there, including stuff you may not have normally touched, including the Scooby Doo adventure game. Yes, it exists. No, it’s not terrible, surprisingly.
But that’s not the point! You’re here for a game, and I’ve got one for you today. A little short, but still.
They actually made a game about slavery once. No, it didn't last long on the market at all.
So, Mecc. They’re the dudes behind Oregon Trail. You know, you have died of dysentry, peaporany and chease and all that. Although that thing spawned from the Apple II version, and not the more modern, fancier DOS and Macintosh version. If you’ve ever been on a school computer at any point in the 90’s, that’s all I really need to say. If you haven’t… well, door’s over there.
So, it’s been a long while since the last food game. A really long while. And I’m really sorry about that. I couldn’t really tell you what MADE it so late besides… well, life, I guess. That, and… to be honest, I’m kinda sick about writing about food games right now. There’s only so many platformers you can write about, and while there’s puzzle games and party games and all sorts of weirdness along with the platformers… I’m not going to stop entirely, I’m just going to move onto some different stuff until I’m reedy to tackle them again.
However! Before we put this on the back burner, let’s check out one more game. It’s even one that I don’t hate and want to die, this time!
So, McDonald’s. What all can you say about them that hasn’t been already thought and said by like 90% of the western hemisphere? Personally? I’ve never been all that fond of them. Their burgers are way too greasy, and they come slathered in these little pieces of onion. I HATE onions.
I would say burn it with fire, but that would only make it WORSE.

Hey, dudes! I’m going to be in a podcast later this month for Sierra’s King Quest 5, a terribly unfair adventure game where any possible chance of winning could be forever snatched from your grasp in a single move. It’s going to be a fun time. …I’m not even sure if I was being sarcastic there or not.
Check by Hardcore Gaming 101 around the end of the month to listen to it yourself. It’s a pretty cool site if you’re into obscure games, too. I’ve written a whole bunch of things for them, just check out any article written by Bobinator. You’ll even get a look at yet another terrible soda-based video game if you check out their Weeky Kusoge section!
…That means I don’t have to write about another advertisement game this week, right? Right?
