The irony of it is that Maisie Williams is not only British so I've lost respect there but the fact she is dressed like someone in the early 90s.



Hmm, pie.

Wow, they sucked.

Though I think it is because most of them don't play videogames too often.


I think (hope) that was the point. They tried to get a wide range to cover all the demographics, from the veteran gamers to those who have barely played Angry Birds/Candy Crush. There's bound to be dumb comments amongst the bunch. If I was interviewed about American Football, I would come off as an idiot. Same concept applies.



I would love to see a Japanese take on this...
It probably wouldn't have the same outcome as I'm pretty sure you could still buy a Famicom/ Super Famicom brand new until about eight years ago...



Have a nice day...

Really enjoyed the video, the finebros make a lot of great react videos lately, they started a gaming channel where those kids play games like outlast (thought that one was pretty funny)..



Some of you have pretty high expectations of these kids. The oldest ones were in diapers back in the PS1 era. It would be more surprising if all of them DID recognize it.

So now Nintendo fans hate casual gamers?

No but i hate comments like these.  

OT: Pretty standard stuff of what these kind of videos do. 

Well, it's exactly what I expected and how a lot of people are in regards to games. Why people feel like hearing that is suffering I don't know.



This makes me feel old. Hell, I'm old enough to be these kids' father. I got an NES for a Christmas gift in 1988. I was eight years old then. Either their parents weren't gamers or they don't have any older siblings that had an NES. Several of them weren't aware of how important the NES was, and I can't believe two of them got beat by Glass Joe in Punch-Out.

I do find it funny that one of the ones that got taken out by glass joe also lost in mario and was frankly the epitome of dudebro. I noticed Outlawauron said ealier that Nintendo fans rip on casuals now. I don't believe that is the case. As far as game play skill goes I would argue that casuals > dudebros and dudebros are the new "casuals". I think Nintendo fans, at least the old school experianced ones would enjoy ripping on them since in most genres(other then maybe a selct few dudebro shooters) those Nintendo "casuals" are far better than them. Nintendo "casuals" use to get a lot of flack since for years they were percieved as the least skilled in gaming. Now with this new generation of dudebros(that talk big game and think they are great, but in reality suck most of the time as shown in the videos) have taken that spot at the bottom of the ladder. Just my opinion based on observation of the current gaming scene.

All Hail the Jester King. The King is back, and I am still a dirty girl prof ;)

There should be a video game history class so kids these days can learn what really matters!



Have these kids lived under a rock? Damn. You don't know what an NES looks like.  I turned this crap off less than a minute in.  Btw, why do people keep linking this garbage?
