Cheeky Video Shows What Classic Video Games Would be Like if the Weapons Worked as Advertised

The Dorkly YouTube channel has put out another cheeky video to have a little fun with classic video games.

This time around the retro-gaming infused short portrays how some of the more iconic games from the 8 and 16-bit eras would have played if the weapons in them worked as advertised. For example, what if Link’s Master Sword actually cut like a sword, or if the Fire Flower in the Super Mario Bros. franchise actually lit enemies ablaze. How about Mega Man’s Leaf Shield? These scenarios and more are brilliantly captured in the video above, so sit back and have a laugh at the plight of retro video game characters.
