On August 19, composer and sound designer Marc Straight introduced his dad to the world of modern gaming.

Though his dad was a fan of video games during the "SEGA CD period" of the early 1990s, his no nonsense descriptions of modern staples quickly gained the admiration and amusement of the gaming community.


Straight took to his Twitter account to share his father's insights like this one about the "action-adventure survival game" No Man's Sky.

Marc's dad calls it like it is. He found Overcooked overrated.

Sometimes, his descriptions were so true they were painful, like his take on Dark Souls 3.

But his father also got to know a little bit (too much) about his son through the process...
