You might have been joking about Duck Hunt, but I may have gathered a negative reputation in high school for being a little too good at it.
Someone brought a copy of Duck Hunt and an NES to my high school one year, maybe a year or two after the Columbine shootings, and plugged it into a TV monitor in one of the classrooms during lunch hour. When I got up to play I went something like 10 minutes without missing a duck, until I let someone else have a turn. Probably serving in tandem with my reputation as a bit of a loner, I’d hear the occasional murmur that I’d be the next high school shooter. And I thought the worst part of Duck Hunt was the dog that laughs at you when you miss.
