comScore Today's Teens Play NES Contra and Fail | The Mary Sue

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.
