Cool retro videos and the people who make them
« on: October 23, 2012, 02:45:50 AM »
So, anybody here have any videos of retro reviews, playthroughs, retrospectives and such? And dfo you happen to have any Youtube (or any other video service) channels that are good for that sort of thing? Post 'em here!

Ashens: Sure, we may all probably know who he is, but not everybody might have known the five game reviews he did. They're all hilarious, much like most of his stuff.

Guru Larry's Retro Corner: Along with more modern stuff, this guy has a lot of funny videos on retro titles like Monty On The Run, Twisted: The Game Show, and a feature on the various computer ports of Contra. His accent's a bit thick, I have to admit, but I still found him entertaining.

The Lazy Game Reviewer: Here's a guy from the US who does a lot of reviews on DOS and Windows 3.1/95 stuff, along with a few playthroughs of more modern titles. He's a huge Maxis fan, so you can expect to see a lot of the Sim games reviewed, including the infamous Streets of Sim City. He's done a lot of obscure stuff I haven't even heard before, and he's pretty funny, too.

Ancient DOS Games: Here's another guy who does DOS games, although they're usually ones the Lazy Game Reviewer hasn't touched. He's a bit less informal than LGR, although his reviews are pretty informative, and do a good job of showing you how the game is, along with tips on where to find it and how to run it in DOSBOX.

I am subscribed to both of the first 2, I am a massive fan of Ashens - I was watching some of his videos last night. For me he is the best thing on You Tube.

There are quite a few I like - I will list them later on!

Retro Gamer - The official channel of Retro Gamer editor Darran Jones, has some really nice Lynx reviews on it.

Retro Asylum - Great channel where you will find all the 8-bit wars videos that I post here and lots more!

Classic Game Room - Everyone should know about this channel by now, one of the best gaming related ones on You Tube.

Atari User TV - Why it's my channel of course! Lot's of Atari related goodness and videos of retro gaming events!

I really like Polaventris.

His calm voice makes his videos quite funny, especially when he's dying a lot. One of my favourites is this one:
Quo Vadis

He could actually pick up a turd and throw it at the cameraman, and people will still pay for his videos.
