Retronauts Micro 63: The Simpsons Arcade

The latest in Bob and company's deep-dives into the Simpsons video game legacy looks at the franchise's biggest video hit of all.

Episode description: On this very special episode synergistically (but not cynically) engineered to help launch the brand-new Talking Simpsons Patreon campaign, we take a look at what many people consider the best Simpsons game in the 25 years we've had them: Konami's arcade masterpiece. With its gorgeous graphics, fun Easter eggs, and surprising faithfulness to the source material, this colorful brawler wowed us back in the day, and continues to wow us in the present. Join host Bob Mackey and guests Henry Gilbert and Chris Antista as the crew tries to pin down what makes The Simpsons Arcade so amazing.
