There are also those games that would benefit from LESS gameplay. There were a lot of parts in The Walking Dead and The Witcher 3 that made me wish I could stop playing the game so I could get to the next story cutscene, though the "gameplay" in a sense is the choices the player gets to make.
At least PC has the re-releasing games covered. I've been playing Final Fantasy IX over the past week for the first time, and while they kept a lot of the dated elements, they've added an autosave feature to lessen the frustration when a random enemy gets the jump on you, and there are handicap...
Alright, here are my anime recommendations:
Death Note - a high school student finds a notebook that will kill anyone whose name is written in it. Proceeds to start ridding the world of criminals.
Sgt. Frog - a kid's show about a squadron of alien frogs that try to take over the world (but...
"Boring" makes for a boring video. If a game is awesome, he can make jokes about how he punched a nun in the face because she asked for money, thereby distracting him from playing it. If the game is awful, we get a hilarious video about how stupid the plot gets and the wackiness that comes out...
I do not see this game turning out well at all. As popular as Firefly is in nerd circles, there's no way it has a following large enough to sustain an MMO. Elder Scrolls is WAY bigger than Firefly, and look how ESO turned out.
I'm surprised Fallout 3 is his most-viewed video. I would have guessed Super Smash Bros Brawl, Metal Gear Solid 4, or Duke Nukem Forever.
Personally, my favorite episode is the Prince of Persia retrospective, mainly because of this gem: "Never stick your dick in a pudding. It's probably still...
Good review, though what was funny was that when you had a big finger pointing to the title of the review, it wasn't pointing at Earthbound, it was pointing at the The Last of Us ad on the screen. Hah.
I can just imagine a post-Purge murder mystery movie where a death is at first overlooked because it took place during the twelve hours, but then something seems off and it turns out the murder happened before the Purge hours.
That'd be stupid and amazing at the same time.
Good review, although you really could have trimmed down the "things people would actually do" list. Seriously, after the first five examples you could haves just said "etc, etc" but you just KEPT GOING ON AND ON.
Good video, Jim. Up until now I've refused to see it specifically because of its tie to the book. However, if you really think it's a good movie on its own merits, then perhaps I'll check it out.
I mean, I did love The Running Man movie, even though it had nothing at all to do with the book.
I saw the first Transformers movie out of curiosity and thought it was crap. Then they kept coming out with more, and people kept going to see them. All I could think was "Why the hell are these movies popular?"
Especially in a post-Avengers world, where you can have awesome explosions...
