The Bakushou!! Jinsei Gekijou (爆笑!!人生劇場, "A Hearty Laugh! Theater Life") series of life simulator video games that were based on the Japanese board game Jinsei Game. This game series from Taito spanned from the 1980s to the 1990s and introduced unique concepts like a randomly chosen career, opportunity for radical hair cuts, and the occasional cameo from Tokyo Disneyland. In addition to all this, developing the avatar's intellect, social skills, and strength are major factors in landing a good paying career that pays the player as much money on "pay day" squares as possible. Depending on the game, the character underwent constant change in his avatar and/or his avatar's face. Most games begin with the player as a toddler and end with the player reaching retirement and senior citizenship.
