Indeed, Mikey. I have received this report from the future...
US president Donald Trump holds an impromptu summit with all word leaders with the help of holographic Abe Lincoln to determine how to contain Pixelated Heroes pandemonium from causing worldwide hysteria and stampedes. People around the world eagerly wait for the clock to strike 12:00 AM to get their copies of Pixelated Heroes.
Everyone at the summit surely feels the tremendous gravity of the situation, and is moved to tears.Suddenly, Kim Jong-un appears on the main-monitor, crying and apologizing profusely for then pain and suffering he has caused. He states that only now, after the release of Pixelated Heroes, has he seen the folly of his ways and the suffering of his people.
The room erupts with applause and cheers, and every world leader unanimously agrees that this day be made officially as, 'worldwide NHL'94-Pixelated-Heroes Day'. It's a new festive holiday where everyone is encouraged to play NHL'94 as a sign of world peace and solidarity.
The new rules of the holiday are written on a scroll with an ink quill and signed by every world leader. It's put over a candle to give it those burn marks that make it look like an older document than it actually is. Then, it's rolled up and shot through a pneumatic tube, where it is sent directly to replace the constitution at the Smithsonian in Washington D.C.
Meanwhile, broadcasts are interrupted all over the globe, informing all citizens to go home and be with their families to enjoy the new holiday: NHL'94-Pixelated-Heroes Day.
Gabe Newell announces Half-Life 3, and in the same breath states that Gordon Freeman will be replaced by Mikey McBryan.
Reviews are pouring in as 10's all across the board, it's hailed as a master stroke of pure genius by all media; small and large. Local news to national 24-hour networks are wall-to-wall Pixelated Heroes coverage around the clock. Bill O'reilly renames the 'O'reilly Factor' to the 'McBryan Factor' for NHL'94-Pixelated-Heroes Day.
Haters and NHL'95 fans have taken to self-flagellation with controller cables. The Pope offers the papacy to Mikey at the Vatican, but he graciously declines as he addresses the throngs of people who wait for his words.
He states, only, "Thank you for making Pixelated Heroes possible. Thank you all." The crowds watching from around the world in stadiums and pubs, in public squares and homes are raucous and jubilant.
Mikey hops into his red, F355 Ferrari, but it has no wheels at all. Somehow finding the time while developing Pixelated Heroes, Mikey has created the worlds first, fully modified hover-Ferrari. He winks, puts on his sunglasses, and turns the stereo to the opening theme of NHL'94. Then he turns the key and the car gradually takes flight and soars into the sky.
Subsequently, Elon Musk purchases the hover-Ferrari technology from Mikey for his Tesla factories. Mikey uses this massive windfall to purchase EA, using an unlimited budget for an NHL'94 remake.
