4. The Healing Item

First Appeared In: pedit5 (1975)
So let’s get this straight. Pizza heals all the Teenaged Mutant Ninja Turtles’ battle wounds, and slabs of beef fix our bloodied bodies in Streets of Rage? Riiiight. We’ll never get it—or understand how Solid Snake eating a real snake somehow turns him into Konami’s own version of Wolverine. But hey, it’s all RPGs' fault...unless, of course, you plan on telling us about that time you beat your roommate to a pulp so you could feast upon his flashing red heart. And please don't.
