The Gaming Historian Goes in Depth on History of Video Games [Video]

I think I watch more YouTube videos than I do actual TV show and movies these days.

I find myself watching anything from JonTron, Angry Video Game Nerd, Nostalgia Critic, Clueless Gamer with Conan O' Brien and so many more.

What these all have in common is they all have something to do with video gaming.

Something I really enjoy a lot about these is when they give a little back story of how the game came to be before they go into the review. I think I finally found a YouTuber that excels in the back story part.

Metalhead Ned Goes Back in Time for ‘This Level Sucks’ Episode 3 [Video]

This game is well known for it's legendary awful game play and alienation of source material. The 'Back to the Future' trilogy is one of the most beloved trilogies of all time, but when it came to video games, these movies were given sub par games.

ToeJam & Earl to Make an Indie Return, Needs Your Help [Video]

In the early '90's, a very strange video game by the name of Toejam & Earl came out for Sega Genesis. You played as either ToeJam or Earl, or played 2 player Co-op and played as ToeJam & Earl. Through it's crazy exterior, it is one of the funnest games of all time!

The first game garnered 2 sequels, and has been missing from the gaming landscape for a long time.

Now, the original creator and his team is looking for your help to create a new game, faithful to the original!

Metalhead Ned Tackles Earthworm Jim 2 in Episode 2 of ‘This Level Sucks’ [Video]

I really like this game! However a few nights ago, I remembered that the last level was pretty difficult. The funny thing about this level is that I can beat it, but it takes me a decent amount of tries.

Can I repeat history?

Star Fox (SNES) is Dated but Still Fun [Video]

Crazy to think that Star Fox for SNES is over 20 years old! When this game came out, my mind was blown. The 3D polygon graphics from the Super FX chip were things to marvel at.

However, if you show this game to anyone today, it's considered extremely dates and looks likes crap. While I do agree that the graphics are nothing exciting today, at one point in 1993, they were top of the line.

Breathing New Life into Resident Evil 6

Last night, for the first time in a very long time, I played Resident Evil 6. I consider this game to be the low point of a once great series. It took away all of the survival horror aspect of the game and traded it for a more action based shooter, like the populate Call of Duty series.

When I purchased this game, I was the only one of my friends who did. Everyone of my friends could smell how bad the game was, but I gave it the benefit of the doubt.

During the year 2000, the follow up to LOZ: Ocarina of Time was released named Majora's Mask. Ocarina of Time left such a stamp on video game history, how could you follow up to that?

Love it or hate it, Majora's Mask has made a 3D return to the Nintendo world.

Conan Invites Marshawn Lynch and Rob Gronkowski to Play Mortal Kombat X [Video]

Clueless Gamer has to be some of the funniest stuff on the internet. Late night host Conan O' Brien reviews video games. The catch is, he doesn't play video games. So who better to review them, than him?
