Reality Glitch Nostalgia Trip: Leisure Suit Larry

Trying out the age protection questions at the start of Leisure Suit Larry on the Amiga for laughs (or not). No game play this time, just a nostalgia trip.

Loading up this game for the first time when I was 10 was an event. I was completely baffled by the bright colours, cheesy music and the weird fella in the white suit chasing a blow up doll. Not that I had any idea what a blow up doll actually was. All I knew was that this was a puzzle adventure game, and I loved them.

The questions at the beginning to get into the game (to prove you were old enough to play) proved just as challenging as the game itself and the puzzles contained within. I have great memories of sitting for ages trying to get these right, occasionally asking my mum random questions to see if she knew any answers that could help me out, for example “who is Joan Collins?”, or “what’s a prophylactic?”.

Good times.

Thanks for watching!
