Watch: Aoife plays Theme Hospital for the first time, gets very angry

She's run out of patients.

Theme Hospital holds a very special place in my heart - it's one of the first video games I remember playing with my father (apart from Pac Man on the 2600, but nobody could get near my mum's high score). When I found out Aoife had never tried her hand at being a virtual hospital administrator, I vowed to cure her terrible affliction.

She did not respond well to treatment.

Watch the video below for vomit, empty coke cans and an alarming number of P45s. Aoife also happens to curse like a sailor in this one, so viewer discretion is advised...
