TASaturday #3: Family Feud (SNES)

After Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door last week, we’re back with a more surprising TAS. This new TASaturday is quite similar to the very first one (which was about Brain Age / Training, on Nintendo DS). The game is Family Feud, which came out in 1993 on the SNES, and is based on the TV Show of the same name. For those of you who don’t know about it, Family Feud is a game where two families are pitted against each other, and have to guess the results of a public survey.

The video game works pretty much the same way, though of course the answers are written using the controller. You might be wondering “But how does a TAS of such a game work?”. Well, pretty much the same way as the Brain Age / Training one: by giving totally ludicrous answer, while tricking the game into accepting them as valid.

This TAS of Family Feud is another example of something that can only be done with a TAS. It totally breaks the game, but not just on a purely technical-level (like some glitches or exploits): it abuses the (limited) text recognition system, and in the mean time, it allows us to see how it actually works (or, in the case of that TAS, NOT work) in the first place.

If you’re looking for a good laugh, then this TAS of Family Feud is definitely for you. Of course, its creator is “beating” the game as fast as possible, but he also gives the most ludicrous answers possible at the same time, in order to make the run really entertaining. Be warned though: some of the answers do contain some coarse language.

Next week, we’ll be back with a more “traditional” TAS. In the upcoming weeks, we’re thinking of alternating between serious/funny TAS.
