    Nope, also the black character is black as in different color of persons nowadays like africans and indians. The game didn't cause any racial problems.

    Hint: The game was before NES

    I have no idea then. My only experiences before NES were with Atari, which didn't have a lot of defined people, and arcade games, and I'm not thinking of any with black main characters.

    The original Ninja Gaiden had black characters but they were enemies

    don't know the name but it's that boxing game on the Atari, maybe.

    No wait it was a basketball Atari game. There were two characters that played 1 on 1. One was white and one was black, and they were oddly dressed in long sleeve shirts and pants. I remember making fun of it with my brother for that reason.

    I can't remember the name. Maybe just Basketball?

    ^ I remember that boxing game too though. It was top down. I think both of those characters were flat black though

    Or maybe they were flat black and flat white.

    I think it was the basketball game. Either that or the boxing. There was Football too, but they were all just little flat pinkish characters. Atari Baseball I think had all flat black characters too. It had to be either Boxing, Baseball, or Basketball. I'd bet money on it.

    well I haven't played it in years so I don't remember, it was top down but im actually not 100% sure if there was a black and a white one but it makes sense to have them be that color so you can tell them from each other.

    Nice. I didn't know they were actually supposed to be real people though. Bird and Dr. J. That's great.

    @Rant:

    I had no idea Activision has been around that long.
    Gimme a minute to think of something harder this time.

    Alright here's my question: What is this game:

    and what are the main character's names?

    Edit: Actually character names might be too hard. How bout what is this game, and what is the name of the other series its characters star in?

    Nah, you're doing fine. You've been the assist on a lot of answers so far. With the Double Dragon question and the last question.

    Also, here's a hint. Think about what the gameplay is like. That has to do with the name. At least of the game in the picture. And the second game, the one not shown, has been ripped off and spinned off more times than I know. I have a rip off version of it on my smartphone

    That's bubble bobble! Characters are Bub and Bob...

    Not sure about what other games they are in though...

    Yup. It's definitely Bubble Bobble, and the characters are absolutely Bub and Bob, but you need the whole answer to win. Think about what they look like and what kind of a newer generation game they'd be fit for. It's been an arcade game, a console game, a smart phone game, a PC game. Lots of rip offs by other developers on different platforms too.

    Not the current console generation by any means, but a newer generation than Bubble Bobble, and the games are still around, but they're not this gen console games.

    They're really prolific too. Every jerk with a PC has played one of them at one point or another.

    The actual game is called both Puzzle Bobble and Bust a Move, depending on what platform you're playing, and some of the more well known spin-offs are Snood, Frozen Bubble, there's one with gems that I don't know the name of. There're a ton of them.

    Me too. On NeoGeo machines. The one in my town had King of Fighters 94, Bust a Move, Last Resort, and World Heroes. I spent a lot of time on that thing.

    Your turn Rant. I'm glad other people are into this too. I'm having fun with it. Hope you guys are too.
