Video games are more than just a mere escape from reality.

An X creator (@DangoheartAni) shared a wholesome incident he had with his dad while playing a video game. The video has garnered over 4.2 million views and 78K likes

The post reveals how the creator was stuck on a particular level, struggling to clear it. When his father saw what was happening, he asked if he could try. Since it was a fighting genre video game, one would think the dad had a strategy to win where his child couldn't. However, he hilariously plops down on the seat and begins button-mashing furiously. Although button-mashing is a poor strategy in modern games, the father manages to defeat the opponent in all three rounds. The viewers loved him for his contagious energy and approach to the game.


In the short clip, we see the dad sitting at the desk, holding a controller and pressing the buttons repeatedly. For the first few seconds, it's unclear how he is faring in the game. After what seems to be an eternity spent button-mashing, the game states that he has emerged victorious with a knockout of his opponent. The dad, full of energy stands up, pumps his fists in the air and smiles in the most wholesome manner. The creator can be heard celebrating his dad's victory over the opponent.

The video had the viewers on edge. As the father won, people started reposting the video, flooding in their love and enthusiasm. A specific wholesome moment that captured the hearts of many was when the father stood up mid-fight to celebrate and then sat back again, ready to face the opponent. @DangoheartAni comments, "Not him celebrating mid-fight, Lmaoo."


After defeating the opponents, the father stands up, celebrates and slowly walks out of the room. People loved the video and shared their support for the dad in the comments section. @SleepyArcher said, "Your dad is a legendary gamer, lmao." @ZaikoShen highlighted, "Your dad is showing ancient legendary forbidden techniques. Pay attention." @AnnazPlays expressed, "That ain't no button masher, that's a PRO!" @DangoheartAni made another post saying, "Wow, thank you for all the kind words and support for my dad. I showed it to him and it made his day! He hasn't played video games in a long time but still remembers Paul Phoenix from Tekken 3 because Paul has a cool motorcycle, lol. Appreciate y'all."
