A couple years ago my girlfriend made me get her Sonic the Hedgehog and Super Castlevania IV on the Virtual Console because she had such fond memories of them and my "modern games" (she played games as a younger teenager but then stopped until she met me in her twenties) didn't have that same quality to them.
She played the first two levels of Sonic and then quit, citing the controls as unplayable.
She also played the first two levels of Castlevania, but somehow couldn't get past this one part where you have to fight a skeleton that throws stuff at you and jumps between two platforms.
This was 2008. She hasn't played them since and curses my name if I dare to bring them up again.
