Sexual Moments in Video Game History

Not so close to the edge, Master Frodo!

Rings of Power for the Sega Genesis has a small, but rabid following. OK, so it moves at slightly below 2 FPS. And the graphics look like they were done in MS Paint. And it's a shameless Lord of the Rings rip-off if I ever saw one. Still, does Lord of the Rings have an inn by the name of 'Lobotomy Club'? Nope, and I think few will protest when I say that 'Lobotomy Club' is a way better name than 'Prancing Pony'. Furthermore, Lord of the Rings does not have a beggar that demonstrates his right to swear, complains about his code and starts reciting Black Sabbath lyrics with no reason at all. And this is only what you encounter within five minutes of gameplay in Rings of Power.

If you press and hold a bunch of buttons on the second controller (down, right, A, B, C and start) and then reset your system, you get a special little treat. Pulling this off on an emulator was a lot of work, as my computer started whining like a little bitch whenever I tried to hold forty different keys down at one time. The trick is to assign all these buttons to one key. The reward is a slightly different company logo. Move your mouse over the pic below to have a look:
