by 1 year ago

Did you know that you can play video games with musical instruments? You can play Minecraft using a bass as the controller.

You can play Ranked Rainbow Six Siege with a Guitar Hero guitar.

You can play Dark Souls by using the Rock Band guitar, drum kit, piano, and Donkey Konga bongo drum.

You can play Destiny with a Rock Band drum kit.

And you can play N64’s GoldenEye 007 on a piano. But this gamer didn’t just play 1997’s classic Nintendo video game, he went on an incredible speedrun on the iconic first level of GoldenEye.

Gamer Jackson Parodi quickly ran through GoldenEye by trading in his typical controller for a piano. Parodi mapped piano keys as the controller buttons to play the classic shoot’em up. The piano keys as the controller give Parodi a soundtrack to his running through the Dam level. Parodi easily speedruns through the secret chemical warfare facility at the Byelomorye Dam in the USSR. You can’t even do this with an N64 controller.
