The 2nd video game I played right after JAWS, was Monster Party. What is Monster Party? It's an intensely bizarre and trippy game where you whack people with your baseball bats and transform into a gargoyle who shoots lasers out of his eyes. And did I mention the massive amount of blood, demons, bloody faces, and scary monsters (and also weird monsters?). And yes, it was on Nintendo.
I also go over the Japanese version that used many stolen American movie monsters, mention the restoration project for it, and mention another video that goes in-depth at the monsters in the game in their relation to Japanese folklore.
