Computer Games Don't Affect Kids...
Kristian Wilson, Nintendo, Inc, 1989 (?)

"Computer games don't affect kids; I mean if Pac-Man affected us as kids, we'd all be running around in darkened rooms, munching magic pills and listening to repetitive electronic music."

-- Marcus Brigstocke, British Comedian
"It is my Joke. I wrote it, then I took the rest of the day off as I was so chuffed with it."
-- Kristian Wilson, Nintendo, Inc, 1989 (apocryphal)
-- Karen Price, Nintendo Representative (apocryphal)
