: I'm Sorry
"Story?" you may ask. "Since when do arcade games from the early eighties have a plot?" Well, this one doesn't, but the story behind it is pretty interesting. In a fine example of Japanese satire, this game spoofs the plutocratic reign of former Japanese prime minister Kakuei Tanaka. The title of the game is in fact a trans-lingual pun, since "sorry" sounds like "sori", the Japanese word for Prime Minister.
Players take control of a big-headed caricature of Minister Tanaka, wandering through various upscale locales while collecting gold bars and punching out enemies who want to capture and humiliate Tanaka in various bizzare ways (including making him a BDSM gimp, much to the mixed confusion and amusement of gaijin who play the game). So basically, it's a Pac-Man clone with punch and jump buttons. Enemies include such eclectic celebrities as Japanese comedian Tamori, track and field runner Carl Lewis, pop star Michael Jackson, and professional wrestler Giant Baba, as well as statues of Tanaka that come to life for no apparent reason.
This is a pretty weird game, I'll admit, though not entirely inaccessible to non-Japanese players. You're more likely to play this game with MAME than in an arcade, though. And you'll probably play it once or twice for the sheer weirdness, and forget about it.
