    In 1989, Clark Thiemann was excited to play his brand new NES game, LJN's Major League Baseball. But when he started playing, his favorite MLB superstars weren't in the game. So what did he do? He sued Nintendo, LJN, & Major League Baseball.

Can we sue games like app games and other platform games for unfair bla bla.. when they advertise using graphics that are not a part of actual gameplay?

In 1988-89, everyone on my high school basketball team and I had sore backs from hunching over and playing Nintendo all night, every night after practice. We had a loosing record that season...we should have sued!

Why do people compare this kid to the "idiocy" of today's kids. When they grew up they are going to known as the brainless one. It just makes me mad people are so bored that they have nothing better to do than that.

If this kid could sue Nintendo because his favorite Baseball superstars weren't in the game he got, imagine what would happen if another Smash Bros. game was made and they decided to make certain characters that fans and/or memers wanted to be playable (Waluigi, Shantae, Isaac, Knuckles, Sans, etc) unplayable via Assist Trophies or Spirits again?

I feel bad for the kid, he worked and saved money only to be disappointed like that. I always find this situation amusing, everyone would expect to have the player names in any sport games, nobody thinks it should be written explicitly. I think all gaming company should give a free trial version limited by time (not by content) so that people understand better what they are purchasing and if it’s worth it.
