If you decide to watch a video online today, it really should be this one.
Posted by Tyler Esposito on his iretrogamer YouTube Channel, the video shows him at 11-years-old reviewing Killer Instinct Gold for Nintendo 64.
The 1997 video, filmed by his father, also stars Tyler’s friend Brian in the first and only episode of The Game Viewers. The games chosen to be shown are pulled out of a hat, and Killer Instinct Gold was the first chosen.
Tyler discusses everything from hard bosses, weapons, move sets and the music. He seemed rather impressed with the game, as he gave it a 10/10 which is a “mega hit.”
According to Tyler, this was their “innocent take on trying to do a video game review show,” and was posted on his channel this week in loving memory of his father.
There’s not much else I can add to this, as the adorable video speaks for itself.
I’ll leave you all to it while I go wipe away whatever that is coming out of my eye (nostalgia? missing my own Dad?) with a tissue.
