To me the whole “Contra and Konami” code is such a classic refference that it’s practicaly become the holy grail of gaming.
 
Luna: Thou shalt not use thine code for cheating of speedruns, lest they have their names stricken from the high score boards. Use thine code for only enjoyment of thine game lest the burden of difficulty becomes to great. Amen.
 
There is alway the classic collections on digital if young’uns want to learn more.

What if they don’t know what “Contra” is?  
My neice was baffled, because a friend of her’s never heard of “Yoshi.” lol
 
Yeah, though she might like Atari & Sega stuff too.

@Beau Skunky  
I know, it’s just most people of this generation aren’t familiar with “the code” reference hence why I referred to it as the Contra code.
 
But I could totally see that as added comedic affect.

Up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, B, A, START.
 
Though, calling it the “Contra” code is a bit inaccurate, because it was first featured in Konami’s “Gradius” first, so most call it the “Konami code.”

It wasn’t my favorite retro console, but I loved the graphics on the SEGA Genesis. The sound was pretty good too. Still wish I had gotten the SNES instead, but at least that’s on Switch now.

The ESRB is confusing, the N64 version of “Ocarina of Time” has red blood stains in the Shadow Temple, (and on the Dead Hand miniboss) and earlier copies featured red blood spatters when Ganondorf “coughs up,” and when Link delivers the “final blow” to him. (Though, the red blood was edited to green for these two parts only in later cartridge copies, and rereleases.) and still is E-rated.  
The 3DS version left that out, and gets E-10 rated.
 
Poki Poki Panic was actually the first time I saw the popular BG character Lyra. lol

I dunno, even the more foreboding parts of Earthbound are still not as intense as most other T-rated games. Then again, I see a lot of classic games get re-rated with the Teen rating so I guess the rating doesn’t matter as most grade school kids are allowed to play Teen rated games anyway.  
Now the Undertale series, which is inspired by the Mother series, has more suggestive content than the games its paying homage to and yet it gets an E10 rating. ESRB ratings can be weird at times.
 
Aside from the blood, everything else to me sounds like standard intimidating dungeon fare. Now if there were torture devices that are commonly used in gore-fest movies, that would be ballsy.
 
I was there when Super Fluttershy Land 2 debuted along with Pony Poki Panic. God, that was magical.

Maybe, but some do think the T-rating is suiting, given some of the game’s darker content, scary atmospheric cave/night music, and such. (Not to mention, the final boss.)
 
There’s racks surrounded by blood stains in the Shadow Temple, chains on walls, not to mention, skulls, spike traps, blades, and such everwhere.
 
I remember A Derp to the Past. Hehe one of the first brony ROMhacks. (Along with Super Fluttershy Land 2.)

@Beau Skunky  
I’d still stand by that I think despite what Earthbound got away with, I think an E10 rating is more fitting. Now Mother 3 on the other hand is more deserving of the Teen rating.
 
@Badumsquish  
What kind of torture devices are we talking about here? Its been decades since I last played OoT.
 
@Beau Skunky  
If I remember correctly, we have a Link to the Past Romhack that has Derpy as the protag.

I’m eager to see what you do with it. I’m doing my own take on a creepy shopowner who deals in illegal, dangerous, and outright cursed or supernatural wares, and while she herself is going to look and act more like Renon from Castlevania 64, Leland Gaunt from Needful Things, and Mr. Dark from Something Wicked This Way Comes, her shop is going to be more like the Curiosity Shop from Majora’s Mask :D

Still waiting for someone to do something with the sorceress twins, Twinrova.
 
Could do Equestria Girls maybe? Derpy Link facing a merged Demon Sunset and Demon Twilight?
 
 
…..
 
Actually sounds like a good idea….

Like, I’m amazed they got away with the Shadow Temple in an E for Everyone game. Like, spattered blood and torture devices and giant living severed hands and zombies and the freaking DEAD HAND. Like, holy crap. I remember totally taking it for granted too XD
 
@northern haste  
That’s a thing even to this day. All the gore in the world is allowed if it’s green, or “oil” or what have you XD

Some enemies also spurt blue blood.  
Red blood was only featured when Ganondorf “coughs up,” and when Link preformed the “final blow” to Ganon at the end of the game. My old grey N64 cartridge still features the unedited blood, but later copies, and rereleases (including the 3DS remake) changed it to green blood instead. Which actually might make that one Ganondorf moment a li’l grosser. Now it just looks like puke, instead of a dramatic injury.
 
As for age ratings being inconsistent, let’s not forget back in 1995 (after Nintendo of America abandoned it’s strict censorship policies) “EarthBound” (Mother 2) was appropriate for an E-Everyone ESRB rating, (back then it was “K-A: Kids to Adult” though) but nowadays it’s “T-Teen” rated. Which is actually kinda understandable, because despite the game’s cute simple retro game graphics, it got away with ALOT.  
Like it had some references/jokes to flatulence. (An NPC even flat out tells you he even farted) The word “crap” is uttered a few times, which was practically a cuss word back then, so I’m amazed NOA let Dan Owsen use that word when localizing.  
There’s even uncensored red blood, and blood stains appear on some enemies, (like the Krakken’s teeth, or Mondo Mole’s mouth/claws) and the ESRB missed all this back in 1995. And other suggestive/subtle things, and not-so-subtle things like an enemy named “The Big Pile of Puke.”  
Not to mention, the game’s famously mysterious, and creepy final boss.  
EarthBound got away with alot.
