I have been super nostalgic lately. Im not sure if it is because I have been noticing more grey hairs each day, or if I am simply missing simpler times. The social media algorithm has been sensing my need to transport back in time. It continues to show me videos of old 80s and 90s commercials as well as tons of classic video game content. I will find myself going down digital rabbit holes, eventually leading to me attempting to buy a classic Nintendo NES console and a ton of "antique" games.

It seems that I am not the only one who is feeling a little nostalgic. The soon-to-be cult classic movie, "Cocaine Bear," is set to be released on February 24th. A movie based on a true story from the 1980s, about a bear who ingested multiple pounds of cocaine.

In an effort to promote the upcoming movie release, the production team has released an 8-bit "Cocaine Bear" video game.

There are tons of classic video game titles. But, I can only imagine if this game was released in the 1980s. How crazy mad the parents would be. How many politicians would be complaining about the violence? But, by today's standards, it looks like a simple rip-off of Pac-Man.

If Montana was featured in a classic Nintendo 8-Bit video game. It would probably look like this.

You are simply a bear, strung out on cocaine. Your goal is to eat as many people as you can without running out of cocaine. Instead of cherries for powerups, like on Pac-Man, you have bags of cocaine. And instead of multicolored ghosts, you have people.
