Dorky and very long (but just about worth it) video of the week: A YouTube called user Nerd³ has made a 42-minute video of him playing a game that simulates being a driver of a London Underground tube train. There are three noteworthy things about this:
- There is a YouTube user named ‘Nerd³’.
- Nerd³ makes documentary-length videos of himself playing video games, and nearly HALF A MILLION people watch them.
- There is a game that simulates being a driver of a London Underground tube train and PEOPLE PAY TO PLAY IT.
If you have a very short attention span skip the preamble and go straight to 4:00, when the real action begins! (Disclaimer: your idea of ‘real action’ may differ wildly from ours.)
