Teens React is a series by The Fine Bros. where they show teenagers ancient technology and record how they are confused and perplexed by it. This week they showed them Mario Kart 64. I guess it’s time for me to go pick out a burial plot, make out my will and decide on what kind of cane I’m going to use to threaten the kids on my lawn with.
Because it’s a cultural icon, the teens all recognized Mario Kart, although several of them thought they were old-school because they played it on the Gamecube.
The Fine Bros. organized a tournament for the teens, and although the retro gameplay seemed to take some adjustment (one girl complains it’s hard to control) they also seem to have a huge amount of fun. Good game design is built to last.
