Player Two

When you’re the younger brother, you’re always player two. That’s the way it is growing up playing video games with your older sibling. But there comes a time when “the way it is” suddenly is no more. Older brothers grow up, leave home, and suddenly the younger is player one. While it’s nice to be number one, it’s a bittersweet victory.  

Zachary Antell captures that feeling that so much of the video game generation can relate to, in this story that’s making the rounds of various film festivals. If you ever bonded with a sibling over The Legend of Zelda or Super Mario, you might need to have a hankie ready. (via Geeks Are Sexy)
