OK, this is fantastic. I can't believe I have missed this up to now, but luckily our Bitsy has opened my eyes to this wonderment. Basically Felicia Day and her cute brother Ryon Day have created a mini web series called "Co-Optitude" - which in a nutshell is just them playing through the retro games that their parents never let them have as kids.
The amazing part that Bits pointed out is that this couldn't be more like me and my own brother Ryan. Although we were Sega kids and Felicia and her bro are doing Nintendo but whatevs. So much like us, from the criticizing banter to the screaming at the badness and the exhilaration of winning. Ha!
Check the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle" game below, it's hilarious. Or better yet just go ahead and subscribe to her whole channel "Geek and Sundry" if you haven't already. I've watched a few "Co-optitude" vids now now and won't be getting up until I've seen them all...work be damned.
