1. Why is Pacman being chased by ghosts?
Seriously, think about it for a second. What's the story behind Pacman? Is he exorcising a haunted house? Strolling through a graveyard on Halloween? Apparently Pacman is the first survival-horror game ever created. Not only that, but the main character makes protagonists from later games seem like a bunch of sissies. After all, this spherical badass can eat ghosts.
2. Why are Dr. Robotnik's technological creations so powerful, yet so vulnerable to being jumped on?
It seems that over the years Dr. Robotnik has created every sort of metal monstrosity known to mankind/hedgehogkind. How is it that machines which are capable of burrowing through solid rock, or being fully submerged in lava, are brought to their knees when a tiny hedgehog jumps on it?
|Maybe the lava weakened the armor plating?|
|The rock is no match for the hedgehog.|
3. Why does Rayman have no limbs?
Ok maybe I'm starting to nitpick a bit much here, but seriously, what's going on here? Is he the result of top secret government experiments? Maybe he's a relative of Andross from the Star Fox games, or even Homestarrunner. If his hands and feet are truly not connected to the rest of his body, then Rayman has a command of the Force that even Yoda would be jealous of.
4. Did anyone play-test Superman 64 before it was released?
Actually this one's pretty self-explanatory.
