Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and the Lost Let’s Play

It was a random afternoon weekend in the early 90s. I was a kid at the time, playing Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2: The Arcade Game on the NES for the umpteenth time. Out of the blue, I had an idea.

“Wouldn’t it be cool if I had video of me playing this game right now?” I thought to myself.

My Next Project: NES Surgery
