I guess the title of this post is a little too oblique for its own good. Yes, Prince of Persia features an evil, sorcerous Persian vizier named Jafar, but he doesn’t have a parrot that sounds like Gilbert Gottfried. Chalk up another victory for Jordan Mechner, I guess.
For Christmas, someone got me a spambot that insists on filling my blog’s comments field with headline news. Thanks?

Is that part of the job description of the vizier, scheming to take over the kingdom from its rightful rulers? I’ve never known a vizier in fiction to be anything BUT malevolent.
It’s the Arabian equivalent of the chancellor, so… yeah.
I’ve mainly played the SNES version of POP, which gets right all the stuff the article describes plus has a great soundtrack, but it has different levels and runs for two hours. How does it stack up against other versions?
They’re completely different games. Prince of Persia on the Super NES was redesigned by Konami and is more of a spiffed-up sequel than anything else.
Does anyone know which version of the original game would be the definitive one? (except for the computer ones)
