A Very Merry Gauntlet

This video is sure to tickle the funnybone of anybody who considered themselves a gamer back in the 80's. If you spent anytime in a gameroom surrounded by coin operated video games, at some point you found yourself over at the Gauntlet machine. What was so attractive about this wonderful game? Well, for starters you could play with three of your friends. That meant four of you on the game at once... Gauntlet was the first machine I remember being like that (later on X-Men and TMNT would also be 4 player beasts).  Click after the jump for more...



You had 4 very different characters to chose from as well. The nimble elf archer, the powerful but slow warrior, the balanced but blah valkyrie  and the plodding magic using wizard. Each character had it's own strengths and weaknesses, and I remember many an argument waiting for a specific spot at the machine. This brings us to today's video. What if your Christmas party turned into a Gauntlet style free-for-all? The gang from Co-Op life know just how to handle the situation. Just don't shoot the food!!!

  1. Before I even watched this one I was saying in my head "Green Elf shot the food!" Fun. Great memories for a great holiday.
