Steven Bogos:
Lee Carvello's Putting Challenge is a parody of golf games - the single most boring genre in the entire video game spectrum (sorry, golf fans!).

Oh, you must've never encountered sports-themed management games. The only thing more boring than playing golf is managing golfers on a spreadsheet, and this is coming from somebody who actually likes these sports-management games.

I liked the boxing game Homer and Bart played early on. Not only was it a one button masher that used combo moves, but it allowed players to use their own heads on their avatars.

Always wanted to play a game that was so badass it was apparently cut from the show in syndication: "Cat Fight".

It was a fighting game with Strong Female Characters scratching each other and pulling each other's hair in front of a shoe store. ("Skank!" "The hair! The hair!") Obviously, The Patriarchy couldn't have any of that!

Of the games that were only shown in advertisements, I thought "Assassin's Creed: Summer of Love" was a fabulous idea.

What about Cereal Killer?

The list should be longer and include whatever game it was where Reverend Lovejoy says "slay the wounded", it was a parody of COD, I think.

So you MENTION Bonestorm but don't actually have it on the list? Especially when a whole episode is centered around Bart wanting to get that game. It even has the tagline, "Tell your parents to buy you Bonestorm or GO TO HELL!" This list fails just on that alone. :/ I was going along with it too until I got to the end and noticed it wasn't even included. Much like Kevin Costner's Water World, I feel a tad ripped off.

Aw, I waiting for Cat Fight here. "Bitch! Slut! Slut! Slut!" Smarter writing than most games these days.

OOH! How about that game Bart played at his psychiatrist's office, "Death Kill City III: Death Kill Stories"?
"Wow, that game's been rated bad for everyone!" "KABOOM! You have killed all human life on Earth! Level 1 Complete!"

Well the whole thing was inspired by the fact that it was just on the list about fictional video games. It didn't need to be on two lists in a row.
