While the military usually commends the ultimate in respect and award, gamers are now branching out into awards. Have you completed the original Ninja Gaiden in a 10 minute period? Excellent. You deserve one of these NES medals for your courageous journey through the land of ninjas. Have you unleashed a 95-hit combo unto your opponent during a heated match of King of Fighters ’98? Of course you have. Have one of these nifty arcade buttons. You deserve it.
While there’s badges available for the NES, SNES, Genesis, PSX and Arcade, I’d like to know where the hell my Dreamcast award is. I actually played through the entire game Seaman back in the day. Surely I deserve something for that mess.
