I saw that. They would never get a game to work...they don't know you have to blow in the game and sometimes stack another game on top to get that bitch to work.

That guido dude

Of course nobody knows Dragon Warrior. I don't too. I only know Dragon Quest is one of the biggest JRPG games ever.

Oh, and Arya playing Super Mario!

Yet a lot of people still walk into the goomba.

Nintendo has done a great job keeping its best works alive and well though.

They've done a good job with Zelda and Mario. Not so much with Metroid apart from the first Prime.

And people walking into goombas at this point have either no vg experience or just do it to as an act.

While I realize this is old to them, therefore foreign, you can't figure out which end goes into the game console?

I played an Atari once and it was "old" to me...i could still work the damn thing.

Truth. It's not exactly rocket science. If it makes you guys feel any better, I've got two teenage brothers who know full well what an NES is and how it works. Many of their friends do as well. It's a similar cartridge concept to games they've played throughout their lives (N64, various Game Boys).

That said, I watched a "Kids react to a Walkman" video and they didn't give the kids headphones at first, so I thought that was a little offsides, as some kids were perplexed when music didn't play after they pressed play. But I guess that would given things away too quickly.

What was the last significant character they have created? They are just rehashing things from the 80s and 90s repeatedly.

That's my main problem with nintendo and an issue they have in general. You aren't going to bring new players into your fanbase by rehashing the same shit for 25 years. They are completely oblivious to this fact to or just don't care. (most likely the latter) If you want to bring in playstation or xbox one fans then create some new ****ing IP's and stop releasing sequels and rehashes.

They have tried to have as wide demographics as possible. Keeping their old customers while promoting their new old games to younger generations is what they do.

One of the lesser known reasons why level 1-1 is so good is due to the fact that it is one of the last levels actually designed.

I like these videos better than the ones with the old people reacting to stuff. The old people reacting to google glass for example.

the brit girl with the baseball hat was cute and hilarious!


blowing on a cart is one of the worst things you can do. one of better things you can do is taking a white eraser, cutting it in half, then cleaning the connectors that way.


i'd like to see how these little suckers would react to an atari 2600.
