Video: This Piano Medley of Zelda, Kingdom Hearts, Pokémon and Mario Soothes the Soul

Because game music and pianos are cool
The idea of someone filming themselves playing video game music on an old — and rather out-of-tune — piano may not be overly-exciting on paper, but it's oddly wonderful. We post various videos of game music, animation and live-action fan creations, and the latest to catch our attention has a rather understated but simple charm.
This isn't a musician unknown to the world, however, as Kyle Landry has uploaded nearly 500 piano instrumentals to YouTube, accumulating a little under 200,000 subscribers in that time. He's done plenty of video game compositions, too, so he's hardly treading new ground.
And yet his choice of an ageing piano, rather than a snazzy electronic variant, works rather well for this medley. Check it out below and see if you agree.
