Today’s Teens Try to Play Contra for NES. They Do Not Succeed.

Or: Teens Play Contra. Kind Of.

It’s not that there aren’t hard games anymore, but there’s something fun about watching people who missed out on the NES era try to play classic games—ones that some of us mastered as children—and fail miserably.

…Especially for those of us who are so old that we must sustain our life force with the tears of the young.

Dan is many things, including a game developer, animator, martial artist, and at least semi-professional pancake chef. He lives in North Carolina with Lisa Brown (his wife) and Liz Lemon (his dog), both of whom are the best, and he will never stop reminding The Last Jedi's detractors that Luke Skywalker's pivotal moment in Return of the Jedi was literally throwing his lightsaber away and refusing to fight.
