Depending on your age, you may remember a time when video games were hard. I’m talking controller throwing, unapologetically emotionally damaging, brutally hard. To heal those wounds in a totally healthy, schadenfreude-driven way, watch kids of today play the original Mega Man and get equipped with nothing but lasting psychological torment.
Too bad they only played the first Mega Man, though. I would’ve loved a live reenactment of “I Can’t Defeat Airman.”
Yes, video games were once so hard that people wrote songs fueled by the emotional scars they left.
