Air hockey is Canada’s greatest pastime. Okay—that’s not exactly true, but who the hell doesn’t love a game of air hockey?

The low-pitch buzzing of the table’s fan, the constant thwack of the puck bouncing off the boards, the excitement you get when you score: It all brings back some of my fondest memory at the arcade.

The craftsmanship on display in his tutorial is absolutely incredible. The only thing missing is a gigantic air horn blaring so that your opponent really feels the wrath of each goal.
