There are video games that are hard. There are video games that are unfair. There are video games that will kick your ass without mercy until you scream for help.
Then there's Captcha, which make those games look easy.
Youtuber NellyGotBored just wanted to log into his Playstation account. The only problem is that he had to prove that he's not a robot. Easy, right?
Not so much.
Despite Captcha's apparently simple instructions, NellyGotBored failed again and again to prove his humanity.
First he was asked to identify store fronts. He could not. Then he had to identify cars. He could not. Does a sign with a picture of a car count as a car? Maybe. We don't know.
Finally, he read the instructions and succeeded. Only to find out that he had forgotten his password and Captcha reared its head again.
A few more rounds going toe to toe with Captcha and NellyGotBored was almost there. He had almost defeated the hardest game ever made and could log into his Playstation account.
And then it asked for his birthday...
There are two possible conclusions to draw from this video: Either Captcha is the hardest game ever or NellyGotBored is a robot.
I, for one, am glad that we have the tools to foil our robotic invaders.
