If you had a NES, this is going to make you feel really, really old

"Teens React To" videos always make anyone over the age of 20 feel a bit elderly but watching them maul a NES console is enough to send me looking for retirement homes.

It seems incredible to me that the 8-bit era is such a distant past that most of these teens don't know what they're looking at, and can't beat the first level of Mario Bros. I've really been thrown into existential horror by the march of time.

Oh well, I suppose even when the NES was a bestseller there were plenty of people who didn't know how to work one; it's not like everyone my (your, our) age can navigate a console menu, is it? Or even use their smartphones properly.

Is it just me or is one of the teens assembled here Maisie Williams, AKA Arya Stark on Game of Thrones?

Thanks, Kotaku.
