Nintendo grants terminally ill patient his dying wish to play Smash Ultimate

There's some good in this world, afterall

Chris Taylor is a fan of Smash Bros. just like the rest of us. He loves Nintendo's eclectic fighter and has been hotly anticipating the release of Smash Ultimate. Sadly, Chris might not actually make it to the release. Chris, a three-time cancer survivor, was recently diagnosed with a terminal case of cancer. Seeing all the hype that fans were building for games like Smash Ultimate and Devil May Cry 5, he began to worry that he actually wouldn't get to see the next release of one of his favorite franchises.

After word spread on Reddit from a couple of Chris's Tweets, Nintendo took notice and granted Chris his dying wish. This morning, the company arrived at Chris's house with the E3 demo for Smash Ultimate and allowed him to experience the game himself.

This is actually pretty similar to a story last year where a Zelda fan was given the chance to play Breath of the Wild before passing. Times like these remind me the power that video games hold and how communities can be a positive force in this stage of human history.
