Watch Teens (Struggle to) Play Mega Man

Check out this video of a group of teenagers playing Capcom's 1987 NES game for the first time--with varying degrees of success.


Capcom's classic 1987 platformer Mega Man is not an easy game, a group of teenagers recently discovered as part of the latest video from the folks at the REACT YouTube channel.

Check out the video above to see a handful of teens take on the NES platformer for the very first time in their lives--with varying degrees of success. Their exclamations--"What the heck, bro?" when being shot at, and "It's just death at every corner" as an assessment for the game--are spot-on.
