Co-optitude

Oh, internet, there are so many fun things to do and watch. But if you haven't gotten a chance to watch Co-optitude with the ever-adorable Felicia and Ryon Day, then your geekery is sadly lacking.

The siblings play retro games on retro systems, including the original Sega Playstation, Nitendo 64 and other consoles. The only consistent aspect to the show is that the games have to offer a two-player option. So you get to watch them try to learn new systems and crazy controls while they narrate their experiences playing some of these games from our childhood (or from legend, since not all of our readers were alive when Sonic the Hedgehog was an actual game people wanted to play).

For old timers like me, this show is a fun trip down frustrating memory lane. Even if I haven't played some of the games, the noise, the ads, the sheer desire to try them still lingers in the psyche.  Plus, you get to watch Felicia Day, and her brother is super-cute too. It reminds me of playing my ATARI ST, in split screen with my brother only with less hitting.

The episodes run around 15 minutes each, so you have to be in it for the long-haul. No two-minute, attention-deficit-inducing flashes. We realize this is apparently too much to ask for some people, but there you go.
