Programmer Creates Amazing Twitch Channel That Plays ‘Pokémon’ With User-Submitted Commands

Some clever programmer has created TwitchPlaysPokemon, a streaming video of what appears to be an emulation of either the original Pokémon Red or Pokémon Blue video game for the Game Boy handheld that takes commands from the chat of live streaming service Twitch.

Given that there are, as of writing, over 10,000 people watching, it’s hard to say exactly how much lag there is between chat-submitted commands and the actual game, but it’s all there in the video to watch.
