Just Watch It: 16 acoustic video game songs in 1 minute

Here is a video of Chad Neidt playing a 1 minute acoustic melody of 16 different classic video games. Personally I would have loved a little more time on on each song but you kids have fried your brains so much on game boys and Boy George records that it’s near impossible to keep your attention for more than a minute. I bet you didn’t even read this whole article did you? Nope, right to the video. Well for those of your who slugged it out to the end, here is theplaylist in order: 1. PacMan 2. Super Mario Bros. 3. The Legend of Zelda 4. Tetris — Theme A 5. Street Fighter II — Guile Theme 6. Super Metroid — Prologue 7. Sonic 2 — Chemical Plant Zone 8. Donkey Kong Country 9. Pokemon 10. Crash Bandicoot 11. Metal Gear Solid 12. Final Fantasy — “Those Who Fight Further” 13. Halo 14. Portal — Still Alive 15. Skyrim 16. Red Dead Redemption — Far Away

Jokes on you Ryan Seacrest, I didn’t want to be within 50 feet of you anyway…and binoculars are really powerful these days! My awesome hobby aside, today we visit with a few characters from one of our favourite games of all time: Street Fighter. As you can imagine, people who fought on the street for a living don’t seem to lead the most sunny and happy lives, but you can read more about that in each character’s bio.
