Twitch might never reach the apex it hit when it was playing Pokémon, but they’re trying to with the Game Boy Color game, Metal Gear Solid: Ghost Babel.
Things started as poorly as one could hope for, with Snake dying repeatedly in the first moments of the game. After about five hours, though, the collective efforts of the viewership managed to clear the first stage.

Mostly, though, it’s just Snake running into walls and lying on the ground. As you’d expect of the world’s greatest soldier when he’s put under the control of a bunch of people on lag-riddled internet connections.
For what it’s worth, Ghost Babel was apparently a very good Metal Gear game at the time, and it’s interesting to see the Metal Gear Solid formula applied to the classic NES-style graphics of the Game Boy Color. While Snake does unspeakable things to the ground in front of a security camera.
