Dude HACKS ‘CONTRA’ ROM to PROPOSE to girlfriend. Nerd Legend.
This dude is doubling down on a fantastic life. Not only has he received a promise of love for eternity from his now-fiance, but he is blowing up across the internet thanks to his marriage proposal. This dude is living the fucking dream.
Veteran gamer EquinnoxX documented how he modified an old Contra cartridge with a proposal message to his girlfriend at the end of the game. Knowing that Contra is not necessarily the easiest game to beat, it feels like a somewhat cruel—but nevertheless fantastic—way to do it.
He posted a huge gallery and shared some interesting facts about the process, like how he had to use an ellipsis because there was no question mark character anywhere in the game.
