As our regular readers might know, your humble servant played a fair deal of FPS games – back in the halcyon days of youth i.e. before I turned f*cking thirty god d*mmit – and despite being brought kicking an screaming into the relentless cruelty of adulthood, he still finds solace within the warm, bullet-riddled womb of the genre. Yet for all the enduring love, some of us in the old-school camp still yearn for the days of yore. Don’t get me wrong: i’m all in favor of eschewing the “shoot the giant thing in front of you, so that you can get a bigger gun to shoot an even more giant thing” style of FPS from time to time. Deus Ex showed that FPS titles can explore intricate storylines; BioShock explored the world of Objectivism, and the potential consequences thereof. Meanwhile, Invisible War taught us that techno-magic can turn energy into either rockets or shotgun shells.

Still, every now and again, one has the nagging feeling that the FPS zeitgeist has left something behind: I call this the “Luciferian monstrosities from beyond the vale of human understanding, spat forth from the pit of Hell (and Mars, but mainly Hell) to lay waste to the cities of man” factor. Such is the topic of “Two Best Friends Funtime Adventures”: a carefree, yet perilous jaunt through the days of yore. Indeed, armed with a shotgun, several keycards, and the trusty fire axe, these intrepid warriors venture forth into the most loathe of realms: YouTube.

So check out the latest(ish) bit of audiovisual above, and for those of you watching in that weird little sliver of space-time known as “the future,” happy Friday!
