James Rolfe's Quotes

  • [on how he became a fan of Godzilla] There were a series of books in the late 70's or early 80's, the Crestwood House series, about all the classic monsters. I saw the Godzilla book in my school library when I was young. They had B&W stills from the movies, and were written very simply, with brief synopsis' and inaccurate information, such as King Kong vs. Godzilla (1962) having two different endings (one where Godzilla wins, one where Kong wins). I thought that was true until the advent of the internet.
  • [on his earliest memory of playing the Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde game] I have such a strange obsession with that game. As a kid, I rented a game weekly from the video store, just about every weekend. That game in particular left a lasting impression. I was confused by it, and couldn't figure out how to play. Lots of times the instruction manuals were not included with the rentals, usually because people who rent them would lose them or steal them. Typically I would make the best of a bad game, but that was one instance where I couldn't, and felt trapped, like my whole weekend was wasted. And now I'm laughing about it all these years later, and am still paying tribute to it.
