Watch: Man proposes to woman via Nintendo game

Pin it

Hey, ladies and gentlemen who worry that their loved ones spend too much time playing video games: chin up. The clip below, in which a man proposes to his girlfriend via Nintendo, is hope for all.

Using what seems to my Luddite mind to be digital sorcery, this Matt fellow popped the question to Liz while playing some 16-bit adventure that I don't quite recognize. The video is very cute and all, especially since (spoiler alert!) she says yes, but I can't be the only one that thinks it's a little weird that one of her first questions is, "Can I tell people?" I mean, I know that that's an issue, but isn't it something that comes up later? Then again, I've never been engaged, so what the hell do I know about matters of the heart? Nothing. Nothing at all.
