comScore Teenagers Try to Make Sense of Nintendo 64 Smash Bros. | The Mary Sue

Teenagers Are Confused by the N64 Smash Bros., Would’ve Been Eaten Alive in 1999

Don't get hit.

18 years later, I am reliving the joy of watching everyone pick up the N64 controller wrong the first time.

By the way, that 1996 date on the back of the cartridge is from the launch of the Nintendo 64. Smash Bros. still has a few more years left before it’s old enough to vote, so take comfort in that, fellow old fogies. Also take comfort that the game’s newer versions control basically the same 15 years later, so I’m not sure the problems here are caused by the N64 version being old. Just saying.

Previously in kids don’t understand older technology
