The Tired Old Hack Winter Games Challenge

Chances are you’ve probably noticed that the 2018 Winter Olympic Games have just kicked off in Pyeongchang, South Korea.

To celebrate this, I’ve decided to take a look back at the history of Winter Olympics video games: the good, and the very much not so good.

In the Tired Old Hack Winter Games Challenge I’ll be uploading daily videos over the course of the 2018 Games, as I proceed through the history of the winter games genre.

The general rule I’ll be following is that I’ll be trying out each event with no preparation whatsoever: not only am I curious to see how each event has evolved over the years, I also want to look at how accommodating multi-event games have become over time too.

Back then, unless you were happy to paw through the manual, a lot of these events were a nightmare to figure out. I’m hoping to demonstrate this here (after all, nobody wants to watch a guy just blazing through every game: you’re here to see me fail, let’s face it).

Let’s get cracking. Every day I’ll add a new video to the end of this article. Alternatively, of course, if you subscribe to my YouTube channel you’ll be notified every time I add one.
