The feat in itself is impressive, although people will be quick to point out some of the missing game titles in the nearly three-hour (!) video. More likely, it’ll make you realize just how many of the titles you’ve never played or even heard of—even if you were an avid Nintendo gamer.

It might even make you want to dust off the old NES—even if it means the standard song and dance of blowing the cartridges just to get them to start. But that victory “Press Start” screen is worth it.
