Video: Nintendo Life Plays Nintendo Land

Posted by Rory Cocker

We should probably be working instead

It's E3 week, which means we've basically been living at the office during the festivities. After the madness that was Tuesday, we decided to take a little time out to unwind and play some videogames. Fancy that!

We recorded the whole thing for your viewing pleasure. Enjoy!

I love Nintendo Land, for a game I thought had no potential, it actually turn out to be alot of fun :) I love playing DK, Yoshi's and Link's mini games, I haven't played any of the ones that force other people to play too, unfortunately.

Shows the sad state of gaming where such an enjoyable local multiplayer experience can be overlooked...

Then again, I still long for the day when three friends and I would plunk $5 each into TMNT arcade just to best Shredder once again. Or when the living room would be packed with sweaty teenagers and smelly kids huddled around two controllers and a bowl of cheese puffs.

I could go on and on, but sometimes I think back to the joy gaming brought to my childhood and wonder what this hobby is becoming.

Especially when I take my young kids to the park and run into a violent pack of six-year-olds aggressively acting out Assassin's Creed. ("I'm bleeding out!", "Chop off their leader's head!", or my favorite, "On you knees!" as one of the goofier-looking first graders slashes his 'friend' across the back with a nasty looking stick.). Meanwhile, my kids are doing their best Pokemon impressions and pretending to have Kirby powers. Ah, the innocence of childhood...
