Go Right – A strangely inspiring video featuring classic side-scrollers

This video montage featuring some of the best side-scrollers in all of video games perfectly captures the spirit and memories gamers have. Simply titled “Go Right”, it’s a wonderful homage to games like Super Metroid, Castlevania, Zelda, Adventure Island, Mega Man, Donkey Kong Country, Super Mario Bros., and countless others. Having not played some of these games does not lessen the effect – just look at those gorgeous sprites!

The song, “A Wild and Distant Shore” by Michael Nyman, is icing on the cake to this inspirational video, and is courtesy of YouTube user RockyPlanetesimal.
