1. Chester Cheetah: Too Cool To Fool/Wild Wild Quest
Chester Cheetah was part of the rash of 80's/90's "
" mascots that tried to teach kids that the only way to be cool was to wear shades all the time, eat terrible junk food and say rad catchphrases like "It ain't easy bein' cheesy!" No kidding! Especially when there is zero actual cheese in your product. But "It ain't easy being orange powdery" didn't have the same bite.
The games were more or less what you'd expect from a Chester Cheetah game: a standard platformer. Chester contended with
scorpions, utilizing the
taste of Cheetos to give him the energy to ride a
' motorcycle for some reason and fight bad dudes. You do have to wonder did Cheetos know gamers at all? Did they really think they needed videogames to remind them to eat Cheetos? The gamer food pyramid consists of nothing but Cheetos and Mountain Dew: Code Red as it is.
There were two Chester Cheetah games. America, for shame.
We like you. Do you like us too?
Don't ask me again.
