The life of a Salaryman.
Okay, but there’s a reason for Takeshi’s Challenge.
Basically, Takeshi’s Castle was on air at this time, Takeshi’s Castle, if you don’t know, was a game show in the 80s, where 100 contestants would storm the game, losing tons of them on each round, which would range from stepping on the right stepping stones to get across a river, to being in a giant foam hand suit, hearing a maths problem, and slapping yourself down on the answer before everyone else, and everything in between them.
In the end, you would reach Takeshi’s Castle, there’d be maybe 3-5 contestants at the end, and they’d have to have a shoot out with Takeshi, and his guard, which would usually end in the contestants losing. The show was designed to be unwinnable. I think maybe 5 people won ever? And one of those was because they deliberately made the final ever episode easier.
So Taito originally wanted to make a licensed Takeshi’s Castle game. Until Takeshi Kitano heard about it, and decided to make a video game, which is Takeshi’s Challenge.
Basically the entire point of Takeshi’s Challenge is, to beat you. Takeshi hated video games, so he made a game that hates you. In fact, if you sit, stunned, at the “Amazing” ending screen for 5 minutes, Takeshi then says “Why are you taking this game so seriously?”.
The Takeshi’s Castle game, did get made eventually, it was in an earlier episode of Game Center CX, but it’s nowhere near as interesting or difficult as Takeshi’s Challenge.
