They were unfortunately proven right, as Bart vs. the Space Mutants proved to be a frustrating exercise in self punishment.

When Arnold said that he’d be back, he didn’t necessarily mean in a good game. Flying Edge’s Terminator 2: Judgement Day had the player take on the dream roll of the Governator himself, as he strove to save John Conner from the more advanced T-1000.

It was recently revived on the Game Boy Advance, but the Genesis version is the one to own.
