To be fair we ALL sucked at Contra for Nintendo. That game was impossible to beat without several cheat codes to amp up your lives and ammo. I mean let’s see you beat this game without Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, B, A (Start). That said, there has to be some benefits to getting older and one of those benefits is to laugh at kids who suck at stuff even though we used to (or still do) suck at those same things.
The video is fun and at the height of frustration with the game a lot of the teams blame the “terrible graphics” which is pretty funny. So give it a watch, I’d say spoiler alert but these kids won’t show you much of the game past the first 1/3 of level 1. Enjoy.
