The 3DO version of "Plumbers Don't Wear Ties" is better than the versions on any other console.

Hold on, I think you have a few typos there. I think it should read like this:

Oh, yes indeed. You are correct.

Legend tells of a game exceeding the calibur of "Plumbers Don't Wear Ties". Many folk say it is but a myth; a logical impossibility and an unattainable goal.

The Androsynth discovered such a game. Now there are no Androsynth. Only Orz.

You better not be saying that the Youtube port of Plumbers Don't Wear Ties isn't as good as the 3DO version!

It's a very good port. However, they changed the game's theme quite a bit. Instead of the RTS Puzzle-Platformer cover-based shooter MMO it used to be, it turned into this weird, vapid Choose-Your-Own-Adventure.

Right? I can't believe they left out my favorite cut scene on the YouTube version! The part when Mr Large, the mob boss, taunts John's with a tie, wrapped around his sawed-off shotgun. The camera zooms in on John's face, as his face gets squinty and he just yells "A TIE?! PLUMBERS. DON'T. WEAR. TIES," right as he points his pipe wrench gun right at Mr Large and the screen cuts to black, kinda like the ending of "She's So Heavy" by The Beatles. That absolute abruptness was brilliant! Why'd they leave it out?!

Gosh, I don't remember that. Although, sometimes I get confused with the prequel they made....

Ya know, where you find out that John was born in a test tube as part of a litter of mutant offspring in a questionable military soldier behavioral experiment over international waters. The kids were pitted against each other, some of them brutally murdering each other with forks and knives between the mandatory arena contests. John bloodied himself in combat against his bretheren, but without joy despite the cheering of the crowd. The crowd's fickle loyalties eventually centered around their favorites: John and Damien. Damien was a ruthless contender who ate the hearts of those he felled. On the night before their showcase battle-to-the-death, John decided to escape. Using his fingernails and bare hands, John ground his teeth and dug out his tracking chip just underneath his collarbone. He disguised himself as a plumber, and to help cover the fresh hole bored into his chest, he wore a tie. Damien swore to hunt down John in exchange for his freedom, and at the end of the game you get the sense that Damien is narrowing in on his target. Oh, and Jane was a spoiled bimbo who got implants.

Did I just stumble into a 'Plumbers Don't Wear Ties' Fanfic? I hope not. Fanfiction gets too weird too quick. You're reading and reading and then BAM....Sailor Scouts and Furries and Lusty Argonian Maids come outta nowhere!

Nah, the Furry Sailor Scouts don't show up until the next game, Plumbers Dont Wear Ties: Plumb Harder. Jane's dead, John's home is in a wreck, Damien finally catches up with him and everything goes to Hell. His only hope? Plumb as hard as he can until Jane is avenged. Pretty gripping stuff.

Heck yeah man. Everyone remembers that fondly.

Ya know, I'd almost forgotten about the saturday morning cartoon spinoffs such as the beloved Plumbers Don't Wear Ties Babies cartoon show. They'd waddle around being mute to their parents (who you only see the legs of). Charming stories of camaraderie, self discovery, and tie wearing; sagacious, thoughtful tales providing a moral compass in my life.

Do you remember when Phillips licensed the massively popular "Plumbers don't wear ties" franchise for their CD-i system? "Plumbers don't wear ties: Porcelain Destiny" It was a sidescroller that looked like it was made in MS Paint. All of the in game close ups of John made it look like he was wearing lipstick and you could pull off his ultimate move, the "Duck Walk". Ahhh... classic!
