And guess what? It turned out to be a great idea.
The creation above, which was first spotted by The Verge, is called the GeneZap and is dead simple: make a mistake in a game, get a nasty electro-shock in real life.
It’s pretty funny throughout, but the best part is at the very end, when a particularly heavy dose from Sonic 1 results in one of the dudes losing his cool and letting loose a bunch of French expletives.
It’s actually similar to something I saw in NYC a few years back, called Tekken Torture Tournament. Same idea, just with a PlayStation. I wanted to give it a shot until I had to sign all these release forms, which all noted potential heart damage. Guess I’m just a sissy.
