It's pretty amazing that a cheat code became so well known, even by people that weren't alive to play these games when they first came out.

Say what? 79's like middle age for a Japanese dude. Long life there begins at 100. He probably smoked and didn't eat enough sushi and nori.

Haha, cool. Pretty crazy that a cheat code got so famous. There were some pretty random games that used the code, too. Tiny tune adventures, a few frogger games, etc.
