there seems to be an interesting lack of videogames in this theatre of videogames

OK, thanxs for that. Now all you have to do is run up to me, kick me in the nuts and tell me my dog is dead. That would have been better then this. I didn't comment on the last one because like I said I would not say anything negative until you got 20 good comments so I never got a chance to say anything. Now, though, I can not let this go any more this sucks just stop it. I must say that I mega loath you because hate is not a strong enough word. This will most likely be my last comment on this show because I tried to give it a chance but my life is way to short to waste on this show anymore. So stop trying and I am Not Alone when I say this.

I'm surprised the local brown-noser isn't present to defend this 'MASTERPIECE OF ESCAPST CINEMA 5 STARZ!'.

Saying that, I enjoyed it. A rap about Defenders of the Universe is nothing less than heroic.

Besides, its muppets!

Muppets!

The tagline alone makes me not want to watch it. Be more funny!

it was good up until the rapping >__< I've heard enough raps on old school games. This is really the only idea I haven't seen done, and it could have been done good at that. But the lack of talent on this show came through to ruin the idea.


Oh, and Crank Yankers was funny until the Comedy Central "over sexualizing" that every CC show goes though. And surprise surprise, there's puppet humping in this one. :p

I for one like anytime I can see puppets have sex on screen.
Team America anyone =D.

Saying that this was the arm-pit fart that destroyed the internet is a bit harsh, but I must say this is quite horrible. Maybe if you worked more on the situational humor and less on the fuckshitcockballs humor.

Interesting... they've stopped being full of jerk characters and are now just blah.
I guess that's a step in the right direction. Maybe.

This video wasn't that great, but it wasn't nearly as bad as previous efforts. When they started rapping it sort of reminded me of that scene in Office Space where they "kill" the copy machine while gangsta rap is playing.

I'll give it an A for effort, but a C- for execution.

I didn't mind this actually, I thought the rap was quite well written, especially the last verse. Having said that, there is still a crippling lack of teh funnay, which I assume is what the series is about (a pretty poor assumption considering I don't think I've ever laughed at this series).

I just watched a clip from Coin-op TV and the guests were the creators of Video Game Theater. It seems that VGT is apparently a big thing on MTV Europe. I can understand that. I don't know how MTV Europe differs from MTV in America...but if it's even remotely similar, VGT certainly belongs there. These short, un-funny, and sometimes offensive videos fit perfectly as filler material between mindless reality shows and videos from braindead rockstars.

I had a small glimmer of hope that eventually an episode of VGT would be released that would prove me wrong and blow me out of my boxer shorts with its brilliant comedy and puppet mastery. I won't hold my breath waiting for that stroke of comic genius anymore. Go back to MTV where you belong. You'll find that the crowds there aren't nearly as hostile as we are toward talentless performers.

This was just horrible. It was insanely annoying. More thought on content and keeping the audience, even slighty, encaptured would be good.

I don't want to sound rude, but I didn't like this, either.

I think the basic idea is wrong tbh. I don't think anyone finds 5 minutes of plain talking funny - not even if it's from Pacman.

The rap had its moments, but this is yet another episode of not funny in this series. The VGT concept as a whole has potential, but it should have been handed over to people who know how to write comedy.

Props to The Escapist for giving this a chance, but this is strike three (the Donkey Kong episode was a foul ball - it connected for about the first half, then swerved off into suck). Dump VGT.
