      Must be cause I'm old but from the start I knew the guy making this video is the guy that bought the bid so the surprise just wasn't that great for me other than it's amazing that there's just some things you can only get from living long enough living long enough Moral of the story you kids are smart real smart but you all should really learn to respect your elders more than you do

    I came across this while I was having a horrible morning. & for some reason... between the mysterious McDonald’s game no one has ever played, you jumping through hoops to get the game, reaching out to lots of people who support you, the “I’m loving it” spiritual song in the game... I cried more than twice out of happiness for you lol. Thank you for turning my horrible morning around. Not only did I learn about a game I had no idea existed.. but I got to enjoy this amazing movie edited video. I’ll def check out the game you dumped! Maybe tonight while I eat some McDonald’s. Good luck with the future adventures you go on. ♡

  • shenanigan87

    While that other guy may have been faster, I really appreciate seeing this entire story develop like a damn thriller! I was totally on edge to see whether it finally works, and that we'll get to see the mechanics of that game. xD But in all honesty, your brother knew how ultra rare that thing was, and the put it in his checked bag? I mean, that's just asking for trouble!

    Got to say, I had almost no interest in the content of this video when UZload suggested it to me. However, you built the story and narrative so well that I found myself 49 minutes later still watching. Great story telling. Good work.

    I would be lying if I say this video didn't make me cry and also subscribe. What a dedicated, kind person to work so hard to find the game and then share it with the world, not caring how it would likely decrease the value. There is still some good in this world after all :)

    I can't help but wonder if you're not even just the tiniest bit bitter about spending that much money on the game only for Cody to beat you to it? I mean, I fully understand that ultimately your main motivation for purchasing it and going through all the trouble you went through was more about owning a super rare game and a super rare DS, so in that sense in the long run I fully get that it was totally worth it. But I'm curious if even the smallest percentage of your motivation was to be the first person to both play it after it became as rare as it did and to release full gameplay footage to the general public, and if so if there's any degree of “well darn it. all that money spent and I wasn't even the first to get into the game since it dropped off the radar, or to full release footage of it to the world.” 😂😂
