街機經典:MJ’s Moonwalker

這個由 MJ 自己策劃和設計的遊戲 Moonwalker 已是十九年前的產物。主題有點像比這遊戲早兩年出街的 MV 電影 Moonwalker。在遊戲內玩家會控制戴著帽跳著 Moonwalk 的 MJ 到處去打壞人和救小孩。小孩被救後還會嬌嗲地叫一聲「Michael!」,哈哈!

我最喜愛的部份是那個迫壞人一起跳舞然後搞掂他們的 special move,加埋強勁的音樂和頭頂的 spotlight,勁型!還有那猩猩(是 Bubbles 吧?)、鐵甲威龍、所有非常 80‘s 的 pixel 場景、與及全程 MJ 名曲做的襯底音樂,全都很經典呢!

還有,遊戲末段的字幕有如此的結尾,現在看來很使人感觸:

…… But what of Michael?

All that is known is that he was last seen soaring away from the crumbling enemy stronghold, heading towards the distant horizon.

And the children that he saved?

Well…
They’re smiling. Because deep down in their hearts, they know that michael will return one day to share with them another wondrous and magical adventure.

Micheal Jackson in Graphs and Numbers

Whether you like MJ or not, you might have to admit that he is a legend of all times (not just of my ages). Here is the evidence that The New York Times has made last night. I like this kind of illustrations very much because that’s what I do during the day time.

RIP Michael Jackson

今早有意無意間穿了全黑,悼 MJ 的離開。可能已差點忘了他的存在,故見這消息時有點異樣的震撼和惆悵,似像當年愚人節哥哥離開時一樣。

但其實明明自己絕不算是他的迷,為甚麼會有這樣強的感覺呢?後來友人電鋸兄點明了一句:「你知道點解 sad 嗎?就像梅姐同哥哥過世一樣,sad 唔係因為我係佢歌迷,而係童年/青年的時代過去。」

冇錯,就係呢個感覺。畢竟他曾是我的時代的天皇巨星啊!他的離去(再一次)提醒了我自己:「我的青春就像小鳥一去不回來」。而更遺憾的,是除了為他的死感到婉惜外,其實我並沒有記得起他從九十年代起任何一件正面的事。想到這裡,我或者可以更明白當年哥哥的選擇。
