VIDEO: The Translation (t)Errors of Old Video Games!

Explore the myriad awkward errors of 8- and 16-bit games

The translation gaffes of old video games have long been a solid source of laughs and head scratches, especially when it comes to arcade games and those of the 8- and 16-bit eras. YouTube user rinrygamegame decided to explore some of these blunders a little more closely, so get ready to dive into a handful of real translation terrors below.



It's nice to see a video like this that isn't just guffawing over the material, and actually takes some time to look at why the errors occurred in the first place. While it's definitely nostalgia speaking on my behalf, I wouldn't have these classic games any other way.
