Teens Try To Play The Classic NES Game Contra

Contra is the classic side scrolling console game where you and Player 2 assume the role of a Rambo look-alike and destroy alien forces, and their bases, wherever you find them.

It seems like every kid who had a NES system had a copy of Contra, and were thereby introduced to the concept of entering a cheat code to help them beat the game.

But even with 99 lives Contra is one tough game to beat, so when YouTubers REACT gave teens three lives and three continues to cooperatively beat Contra they eagerly stepped up to the challenge...and don't do very well at all.

Don't fret teens, I can't get past the second level of Contra without the cheat code!

Contra is not that hard. Without using the Konami Code, I could go up to Level 4 or 5 before I lose my first three lives. I usually finish the game with only one or two continues.

It wasn't that difficult till you got to the vertical stage and the last. Besides how can these kids play PS or Xbox games with 6+ buttons and 3 directional controls and be screwed with two buttons and a directional?
