Video Game Ad of the Day: Pooyan

Pretty much the greatest name for a video game.

Pooyan puts you in control of a mother pig defending her litter from hungry wolves. Often seen as one of Konami’s “forgotten” hits, Pooyan got a fairly hefty referencing in Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker. There is a mission where players must shoot down soldiers being lifted off by Fulton Recovery Balloons – it even has the original Pooyan sound effects.
