YouTube commenters are usually trolls or immature kids. I have been on YT for years (since March 2007) and lots of talented people on their have had loads of crap comments which they don't deserve, so you can safely ignore those.

We're all nerds with high standards - some having warped ideas: good and bad!
Two programmers will never think the same way all the time, even when given the same tasks/problems to deal with.

Many of us (certainly myself) don't know the specifics of the working conditions and environment that you had to work in. Hearing from people like yourself and dlfrsilver, as well as reading recent books like Ocean: The History, have certainly helped myself and others from understanding the way the industry worked back then.

For what it's worth, I am self taught in all the languages I currently know (Spectrum BASIC, AMOS Professional, HTML, Visual Basic 6 and 68000 assembler) and am still very much learning better ways to code. I have been programming on and off since I was a teenager in the early 90's.
Getting the inside scoop on how your games work (as well as the legendary demo coders on this site) has helped me improve my coding practices.

Actually... it's very similar to Beats Of Rage, inspired by Sega's Streets Of Rage game.
The unofficial Dreamcast version has graphics *cough* borrowed from King Of Fighters or Final Fight, IIRC. It's been a few years since I played it.

I recommed changing the title to Come Get Some!!!
