The Fifth of November, Guy Fawkes' Night, Bonfire Night, Fireworks Night, or whatever you want to call it is a celebration in the United Kingdom and certain other countries centred around a historical event known as the Gunpowder Plot. Many people know it because of the excellent comic and subsequent film adaptation V for Vendetta, but as wonderful as it is, it doesn't greatly explain much about the actual historical event.

That's why we at Nintendo Life in our infinite wisdom decided to tell the tale of Guy Fawkes through the only medium we know: video games.

In the video below this humble video-maker has used footage from the excellent Donkey Kong 64 to tell the story in a relatively detailed manner, but without getting too bogged down in the boring stuff, so check it out!
