Awesome Tribute to Video Games

Post by Spacepatrol » Sun Oct 07, 2012 2:41 pm

Just found this on Reddit and thought it was worth a repost. It totally blew me away and I actually watched the whole 9 minute video twice. It is unbelievable what goes into US college sports, but this is just something else. I won't say much so you can be a surpised as I was.

Ha, that's absolutely amazing! :D

Well enjoyed that. My mrs thinks it's wonderful too.

I'd be more impressed if it hadn't been done before. Somewhere in the depths of the internet, there's a video of a very similar routine from several years ago.

Perhaps much like videogames, two developers have come up with the same idea independently?

I've seen one similar before, but this one was better by a long way. The Zelda part was amazing.
Thanks for the link Spacepatrol. :D

Thought that was quite good, the only bit that I didn't really care for much was the Halo bit, mostly because I haven't played enough of it to recognise the music so until they formed the logo it was the only thing I didn't know what it was. Bit of an odd choice as well given all the rest were classics and then they pick one very random modern game, seems a bit....silly?... to me guess.

Yep, the bit from 6:09-6:37 is amazing. Though the guy that walks in front at 6:23 needs a slap! Get out of the way, fool! :lol:

After about 2 seconds, the smile on my face was huge! This is brilliant!
