TWITCH STREAMER GOES VIRAL AFTER DISCOVERING HOW DIFFICULT 90S VIDEO GAMES WERE
THE DIFFERENCE TIME CAN MAKE.
Video games of the 80s and 90s were designed quite differently than games of today.
For Storymodebae, what was supposed to be a fond venture into the port of the 16-bit “classics” soon turned into a disaster.
Right off the bat, she started having trouble on the very first level, constantly dying to random bugs.
While she managed to get through that portion, the game’s second level was where Storymodebae went viral.
IT WAS OVER BEFORE IT BEGAN.
After attempting a section at the very beginning and dying almost immediately, her game was over in the worst way possible.
Instead of starting her back at the beginning of the level, it booted her back to the title screen to restart the game from level one.
“Game over?!” she gasped. “What do you mean game over? What do you mean?!” “Games in the 90s really didn’t care about auto save or our feelings at ALL,”
The streamer uploaded that section from the video to Twitter where it spread like wildfire, racking up over 4 million views.
As it turns out, the developers were forced to make it more challenging because of the popularity of game rentals.
