    This is a video (although you only hear her audio) of Youtuber David Melnarik's mom trying to guess Super Smash Bros characters. She starts off strong with Mario and Donkey Kong, and quickly goes downhill and off a cliff from there. For the most part, she's not even guessing n... / Continue →

    This is allegedly the name chart of Super Smash Bros characters according to 6-year old Chloe, who was asked by her older brother Lorenzo to name them all. She did a great job. Way better than my little sister could have done, but she's not allowed to play video games. "Why ... / Continue →

    This is a video of Pierce Brosnan and Jimmy Fallon playing Goldeneye on Nintendo 64. They both suck horribly. I could easily take them both, even if they played as Oddjob and I set my health bonus to -10 (any shot fatal). You know how many hours I logged in high school playi... / Continue →
