GoldenEye 007 Fan Steers To Victory

Get it? Because he's using a steering wheel to play a game that wasn't designed for it!

I know, I'm a comic genius. Try to hold your applause until the end.

Alright, on with business. See that video embedded at top-right? That would be a YouTube user calling himself "welovelordtaco" playing the Nintendo 64's classic shooter GoldenEye 007 on the Project64 emulator with a Logitech DFGT steering wheel in place of the traditional three-pronged N64 controller.

That would be impressive enough, but if you stay through the end of the clip, you'll also notice that he completes the game's "Facility" level on the game's hardest difficulty in record time.

Meaning: This guy is better at GoldenEye while using a peripheral designed to steer virtual race cars, than you are with the console's first-party control device.

Now, before you start weeping and futilely slashing at your wrists in what is obviously a cry for help, keep in mind that the universe we live in is nothing if not hilariously ironic. Despite his mad skills at GoldenEye, I'm almost totally convinced that this guy has some crippling life deficiency. Like maybe he's terrible at driving games, or his left arm is actually an ocelot. That's just how the world works.
