Teens have their youth, but you could still beat them in Smash Bros. for N64

The Teens React series from YouTube channel React is superb at reminding anyone over the age of 19 that everything we love is ancient and death is creeping ever closer. But for those of us who spent our youth playing the Nintendo 64, here's something to gloat about: You could probably beat a teenager at Super Smash Bros.

Puzzled by the fact that Super Smash Bros. existed before the Wii era, the teens featured in this video go head-to-head against each other in classic Smash stages. While some are surprised by the purpose of the N64 controller's Z-button, others learn the hard way what happens when you encounter an Electrode in the Saffron City stage.

If you're in the mood to feel exceptionally ancient, check out teens reacting to the NES, featuring Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams.
