View Full Version : JAWS

I'm just going to keep making topics of old games I played to see who else is familiar with them, and until the inevitable "You're old" comments start.

We're going to need a bigger console!

JAWS was a video game for the NES by LJN and came out the same time as JAWS 4. At the time I played the game I never heard of the movie so I just thought it was a game about exploring the sea and battling sharks. When you run into JAWS multiple times I just thought it was a different shark. Hence the plural of jaw. Also, for one reason or another, I thought the scuba dive man was a gold fish that shot white balls at other fishes and the likes.

I don't know what I was smoking at the time but it must have been some good stuff.

Oh LJN...

I've never played Jaws but I've seen some videos about it. It looks pretty awful to me. I should try to play it someday anyways just for fun.

I've never played it, but I've seen the movie a few times. It's easily a A grade film if that counts!! Oh...and there is this...

I had this game. I killed Jaws...once. You have to kill him multiple times to win though. Also when you kill him you go to this really hard mini-game to harpoon him. That game was hard. Games were hard back then. :sweat:

I vaguely remember the harpoon shot, I just don't remember if it was me or my brother playing when I saw it.
