Video games are always fun. Not only is it a temporary break from reality, but it also lets you be part of a bigger game – with multiplayer and RPGs. And for some, games often become one of the most common ways to pass their time.
nintendo, A Japanese multinational consumer electronics and video game company headquartered in Kyoto, and regarded by gamers as almost a divine (replaced synonym for divine) company, announced in mid-September an Ultimate version of the popular game Super Smash Bros. the gaming community rejoiced, but one particular person was also worried that he would not see his favorite game come out.
Chris Taylor, better known on the internet as: Ghostly Woobler, is a 21-year-old gamer, and a three-time cancer survivor. After finding out that he is terminal, he decided to stop his treatment in July of this year.
So when the company announced the release date in December, Taylor wasn’t sure he’d be able to play the new version of his favorite game.

December is still a long way off for someone already bedridden… — Chris Taylor (@SpookyWoobler) September 13, 2018
I know it’s childish to despair over a video game but smash means a lot to me and when the ultimate looks this good it breaks my heart – Chris Taylor (@SpookyWoobler) September 13, 2018
Sorry to be sad about main during hype time, but hearing things like smash and DMC5 is starting to get painful to listen and reminds me I can’t play these games I’ve been waiting for years just for random chance to kill me slowly once they’re announced – Chris Taylor (@SpookyWoobler) September 13, 2018
And Nintendo made this wish a reality!
Nintendo sent two reps to his house with a copy of the E3 demo of Smash Ultimate and a Nintendo Switch, and he got to play it for a few hours.
Taylor shared photos from the event.
And a post on Reddit about the experience and spreading awareness about his type of cancer.
