Watching teens play Contra is gloriously frustrating

Kids! What with their never-ending continues, instructions and inability to survive in water, how can you expect them to take on Contra and do anything but fail ... gloriously?

In the latest, Teens React Gaming video we watch as teams of two learn important lessons like:

  • That dude running at you will kill you when he touches you.
  • Those dots flying toward you will kill you when they touch you.
  • That turret that pops out of the wall will kill you when it touches you.

The most important lesson these kids learn, though, is that like life, Contra is really, really hard.
