So, hey everyone, and we're back for the fourth episode of the four eyes, I could email podcast. Today's host is me a still, and we're also joined by RST all, your boy Lappyma Blacka Vera Prime. Okay, sound luck. He's an Amazis. They have it. So that's our cast for today. If you haven't already, make sure you listen to our last podcast, which is all about mangaest anime. You will hear some very interesting opinions and takes from the cast, so make sure you have a lesson and share your thoughts with us on our socials. So today's episode is going to be talking about games we love as kids, but before we get into any of that stuff, it's time for a quick news around. Up Fast, up on the list. So recent news in the gaming world is that Sony we investing two hundred and fifty million dollars in fortnight maker, epic Games. So what do you guys think about that investment? M So, I just think epic makes money, so it's so do. It's easy. It's easy returns. If you got money to invest in, you know, a company as profitable's epic, and why not? You're going to get returns on it. Fortnight. Maybe is crazy and will always be crazy. So yeah, yeah, I agree with that. EPIC. Well, they've got they make money just for fall down and they do have the unreal engine as well, don't they? So the big money makers they're so yeah, probably disease decision for some needs to make. MM. I've nothing to say. I'm not going to see. If I stay mute when it comes to me, it means I'm not that say anything. I'm back. For me. EPIC or they do is make troing gun games. And but if my crush, my thing, is on games. You know. Yeah, they made Tring on Games. But I had my thoughts that if they invest in in the epic in terms of annual engine, do you think that that's going to mass, like, play a massive impact in terms of under engine use in psive games? That's my kind of thoughts, but I've been I don't really care tonight. Man, doubt it, but we'll see. We'll see how unreal and engine develops itself, because what we all now is unreal engine for five. Yes, five, if five now, I think it's five. If I've actually been put into USHA. I'm not sure what forward has been put into you. So don't think what was other food's been used at the moment. Moment. Yeah, because for fives and fives an out yet. I isn't out yet. Yeah, so I will see how that develops. See that out develops, sure, true, cool. Next up, haven't you guys watched the new parkis six trailer, because probably a leak this week. Have Not Watch to me? And the first up. I already care for that company. Come on, man, far cry Games are not bad. It's like they've actually been shining forwards. But I don't know, like Joe's, I never care about far kright before it releases. So if even for trailer was leaked or a tease was leaked, as a man, none of business. Bro when the rush, when the real content drops down, I might look for it. Apologies by I must. I actually missed up, messed up with full out, mix them up also can full of fuck or bad. But yeah, Fu Cras you be. Yeah, yeah, yeah, you'll be. You be soft to it's actually you be, isn't it? Yeah, you know, you know, you need stuffed unlike so man, and all seem so it's not even you be soft this you be soft. So, yeah, we're to God. It's not. You be soft. Is Oo be soft. Yes, it's rattled to rattles, absolutely rattle. I've heard people say square n x in the past, so you know and I know that yeah, that's the nx. I've had a few man say square n x and to me that still right into this day. But I don't know fuck right. And I think from I mean I haven't seen the trail about seeing the little promo poster with what's his name, Gustava frink, from breaking back, but which is quite interesting, I remember him sweeting something that he was going to be part of a really big game. So I don't know what he means. His you know, really big to him...

...is very ready like relative. We don't know. It could be as a small as I an animal crossing pocket camp in our eyes, but to him it could be massive. Man Said, didn't we bought a big game and his fuck cry like in brother Barby. Honest, I don't know. Since far cry three I've felt that it's been a pretty dated. I feel like the whole, you know, the Gameplay of it, the whole free roam fps has been a bit dated and kind of Outclass by a lot of other games. But we'll see. We'll see how they try and reinvent themselves. They usually have good stories. So yeah, I think that's the thing. If our cried that, like the Games as a whole, I think it's more focused on the story and the UPG elements. Like far CRAFIE was the first one I played, amazing game, and far kry force for the one I picked up myself and really enjoyed I've ever since that. I don't think they can'd of they've hit it with the kind of the main villain and they create in the kind of like is generally a make sure of you're fighting animals and humans and the hunting ideas just kind of bout played out quite a bit now. So I don't know how they want to do it. Rise it, Trok. Oh my God, I said, what was the what was the fuck? Our game on on the WII. I was one. It was like a launch title. I can't remember which one it was, not clear ventures, but I remember it got absolutely slated in reviews. It was so bad, so so bad. It's one of the worst launch I think it was a lad tle, one of the worst launched wee tatles that came up, but boy, the miles. I kind of pronounce this miles Rales Spider man box up was dropped. I did this week. Have you guys had a chance to look at it and like, what do you think? Because I think it looks pretty decent, but I know there's some of opinions and this it is groups I didn't like. Let's let's share it. I mean, yeah, okay, it looks okay, decent, looks okay. I don't see anything magnificent about it. It's got them, it's got spider man on the front. It said it says spider man, it's got a turtle and yeah, you know, I mean nothing roundbreaking. Kind of people are gonna. I'M gonna it Pron no, I mean, oh my God, this is the best covers. Is Epic. I love it, like it's just spider man. I brought like like every other spider man cover hasn't been pretty much the same roll. Just by that I jump in. This one's now colored in black and that's the only difference. That you could pack it as well. Bro My this is amazing. Wow, gray, okay, okay, power, okay, yeah, I think it's also important to about the psfive box as well, but oh my goodness. Yeah, I'm much really feeling the psfive disaster boss. So I think that's it. I think that's the most important thing about that the spider man cover is the white strip at the top. That just ruins it, like it just ruins all the covers. I can look at a Psfour one right now and that Blue Strip is nice and it's thin. It looks nice as Delusius you know, but I thought they went back to the first the piers three kind of back line at the top. But put that in white and it just looks. It just looks, but its like it doesn't. White doesn't go well with every color scheme in out and I think that white on that strip on the spider my case, basically just ruins it. You guys are warm to it or it's just now. Had to go up for but is now just don't forgot. I don't know. I'll care for it to evenus. That's the main thing. So it doesn't really matter to conness and the same care enough. Yeah, it's basically you guys would all go back in there like we design it yourselves. If you could. I would even care enough to redesigner. I was just thinking, yeah, I mean it's I'm just gonna take the disc out of poppins our playstation. Neither like leaving. No, leave the case in a stack of other cases. And with most of a lot of people interested in the band the digital only version, it's not surprised they don't care either. Another point on the on our list of news is the announcement of Megan stallions collaboration of country roll. What do you guys think about that, because I when I found out the news, I kind of just thought it wasn't ever to what this point. So something like this is going to calm down pipeline? Yeah, you guys here for it or you just like yeah, whatever. I try to act like I didn't care, but I also dropped many forty pounds on one tshirt. So you did. What of Jesus is for e quid any goods? Fair enough, God, when go ahead, will lie? When will? But I'll see what you've done for others. Do the same for me. They been a librarian, guys,...

...what ty GP Sterling, Great British pounds, you know, God, my teacher comes and then doing hot girl shit on Instagram, just like my photo and keep it moving. That's it. Oh, no comments. Respect. I'M gonna be taking any comments at this time. She's gonna get the money back in Les, Huh now. But if you're okay, if meg was a drop some more like male stuff for the guys, you guys be more here for is just like, Nah, I just know it's what your bag bro if it was really, if it doesn't, it doesn't, I'll get bussman to recreate for ten pan this guy. But I think it's good for me because she's been obviously she showcased her her love and interests for anime before. So at least for like the fans are come up, it comes across is genuine, not general, maybe not genuine, which is that okay, cool, like just her co lab and this is how combined in like I love of anime and like making money in it. I mean it's better than Michael B Jordan collection. That's true. That little that I don't know. Was it in every stuff. What are you calling the Rati or Sath? Crazy, good people are gonna kill you today because it was equal inten. I'm Larato and yeah, but man, look, triple copper still actually said in Narati. Should be doing can keep it broke. My thing is I think the reason why I like the crunch or collaboration make a lot is because I think what crunch are now so understand. I think a lot of people are sometime saying that anime hole is now kind of like pop culture again, and and that is going to be your solfial influence make obviously has a big audience. CRUNCHOS from like trying to maintain the same way with their crunchy role are, what was it called again, like their and virtual like exper basically they had the dark vader guy or whatever, the guy that does videos kick D or. That's the one. King Vadam, I said dark vader. God, sorry, and that convada brother there. So I feel like they're just trying to kind of bridge that gap between reaching the black audiences and making it like pop culture more than anything else. I mean, as long as it looks good, I'm more for it, and then the quality is a good yeah, why not? Why not agree to its very forty five pounds for a fruit of the loom? Shut you just increase the price. Is that what I said? It doesn't matter. Yeah, and I think I agree with prime as well, and I think it's good that, because as an artist. I think she's like cool, but at least just like a new announcement and it's not like in you like breaking news that she's shaking bomb. So at least is something. It's something new, so that I could be that. Let me clap my hands. Paper Mario, always skip that one. New Releases. I'm getting it. You can't paid, Maria. Yeah, getting fuly is getting it. Yeah, fun of the people were games. Actually, it originals, to be honest. Yeah, I played. I haven't played thousand year old or oh, that's amazing. You need to play that game. These aren't play thousand. Thus say that conversation for later. What kind of Nerdery is this man? You Man Copying paid my round and side right, side scolling. Nonsense, brother, pack it in like they don't even you put any me games. Now that's one passion. That's wrong, person. Don't buy me, don't buy me. Don't put it awful games from you named three names, three jump seest jump filters, massive job see star, jump fiesta, jump real star. I hate you. Got To punish you. God will punish you. I've got it. It's got all the DSC probably next extra costume. That about paper, Maria, my jump, jump jump yester. Now Future Dms, am Dante from DMC. I respect it cool by funky votes. That would be fucking m yeah, that's going to be me this week, but I think it looks good anyway. Yeah, your game on the switch anyway. So with suit of review say, but I'm looking forward to it anyway. Yeah, then those are the ghost of the sheep coming out this week as well on severs. HMM, didn't want plan to get that finally said again. Yeah, and the sake of confidence, is anyone plans to get that game? Goes to see Shima? Probably, probably not straight away. I want to, I really do want to play Secura before I get goes to Seeshima. I feel like it's a game I wanted to play but I haven't given the chance yet. So I'm death you're gonna wait for secure first before I jump on. Goes to Sushi. I didn't want to play Securo because I thought...

...it would be, wait, a waste of my money because literally everyone had seen play it has had like a brain on yourhism. But I think I ought to give it a try, I think, before I try the sucusion as well. Yeah, yeah, I think I'm the same. Was All. Actually, I know goes to shoot him. Sushima is an easier game, I've heard, than Secura, so I do see the argument for getting it. If you want a game of that ilk without having that extreme difficulty either, secure office. But yeah, otherwise, I mean I'd want to get it, but it's just about prioritizing which game you want to play first. What's everyone playing this week? And no more crossing every day. That will cross into the honest Nice DLC. My call of duties between stock, some on that support four hundred hours and animal person. Still want to pull my hours yet again? Yep, Yep. Well, I forgot as well. I'm starting. I started the witch a trilogy. I just standarded the collection of scheme because it was nine pounds. So I'm starting to put your one. Yeah, that game as hard as I'm going to feed through one, two and three. Yeah, that's your year finished. Listen. Yeah, I have no response. Have you completed persona yet? Have I what it? Have you completed persona yet? Just repeat, sorry, in the connected to Christ eventually, eventuary. Yeah, probably what you play right now. Those new up they are monster or something, playing that usual animal crossing as well, just doing my daily stuff on there. Man, time to sell, but a fuck Monstan, a man. Yeah, we've been playing the Prim and a couple friends, you can playing the update trying to hunt the new monster in their last free on. So some moster coming from previous games and it's been it just a wants, to say the least, roll. There's a petition up to get the monster changed, usually so make it easier. Bro That that basically in front hole of months. I do I think there's been a DPS chuck on monsters in it. So now that I mean. I think. Well, they've had a few, because I think they will. They've done to extreme behemoth without I think there's been some place, because some people say because at least we've extremely heaven. That was like a special event quet like. That was the tempered version where the DPS shit. This one's just the standard. A last few on this got some elemental DPS chick that you don't hate. Your team gets white, basically, and then a lot of others we come fling about it. I thought, I least that I complete this story. So far. I got don't know that any gems. I don't know. I don't. I don't believe you. Probably, probably he did. He did the main sort of lame story world on base world. Yeah, you're a bomb, I come. If you bought a game, you knew you weren't going to play it. Now you know. That was the reason I bought a piers four really, yeah, and the next blossop until that point cool. So I think that's it for the news around up and declined to get into the main topic. Let's talk about our first gaming experiences and our first ever consoles. I remember, I think pstwo was my first ever console. That that's what started me off. So what were the first ones that you guys got, and also what were your first gaming purchases with those consoles as well? So that's your stories. First consulted. First Cols I played or owned both either. Okay, my earliest memories of playing video games. Cannot remember how old I was. I must a bit about three or four, but I remember going to someone's house. There's an older kid, I was like a family friend at the time, and he had Super Nintendo and a Jaguar and I remember he was just switching between games. So the first Games I got to play were Super Mario World on the Supernintendo and I love that game. It was all vibrant. It was just really fun. And then I played Batman on the Atari Jaguar, which is pretty it was a really, really good game. I remember like the graphics were actually pretty decent out the time. Sorry, you've said that Arry Jagu are twice. Bro. What is that? It's console,...

...mom. It's of course the console, the console. Yeah, I mean it came up. I think it came out. Was that really? You know, I think came out late. He's obviously people still have consoles from, you know, a couple years back. Yeah, I'm joy. It's fat ever heard that console in my entire life. Man Said Jag you on our sat there and said but yeah, but I mean it just depends on what console you consoles you've played. I mean I played a commodore sixty four when I was about twelve. Okay, I've heard of that one, which most people would never have any idea what that looks like, but I didn't like like a PC. Yeah, pretty much it was. All the Games are ugly as well, but the first, the first s first game console I own for myself. I mean I played a lot of Super Nintendo Games during that time when I was young, cousin, because I hope and by never had a console for myself. For First Console actually got for myself was in Nintendo sixty four and I got that with Golden I. So it's quite an extreme game to get as your first game, especially being I forgot was about five at the time, five or six. Did you get that pocket money? No, no, this was just bought for me. This is parents and it's so funny because I remember we're looking in the August catalog and I think my parents have asked me what game I've wanted, what game console we for me and my sister wanted, and we pointed at psone and when they got back it was a sixty four. But you know, blessing in disguise. That's what put me on the PATHTER. You know, all these great Nintendo Games. Cool fake. What about you, POLA? My first game in experience, I think it when I was my prayers. We went to family friends and may it was like they had saga. Was it make a driver? Thinking was there the Sega mega drive and so in the hedge choke. So it was there then. Also, there was a kid that lived up the room for me that I got to new as low as well. He had the Super Nintendo, so my experiences I was playing with it like that. He had the Perrie just game boy, Kong country, Super Mario World. Will these games from the superintend though. And then my first console was the end sixty four, because this kid also had an end sixty four, which came out a couple a few years later. I was always at his and I love thing the console and I like big mom, my mom. That's to get for me. They go from my seventh birthday. They got meard at sixty four with Mario caught sixty four adds super mario sixty four. So yeah, that's my laughing into the group from then. What about you, prime what was your first console? Back in? My first console, I'm not sure if it was in terns sixty four, piers one. I'm going to say Pisone, class one. Actually remember. Yeah, let's pus one. I remember went to my cousin's house and they had like would like that the best one, and we just kind of pop up in the top and you stop to this getting us. I love about that console. But I was playing the game spider in it. And the game spider when you're actually scared up from spiders doesn't make sense and I think I generally bricked it. So inside playing Abes odd world. I think that's what the original cause one wants. Good, I remember, but that ABS Oord world game, and that game was absolute shy. And then I've fell in love with crash banniky and then, as I actually just comes as kind of a right, and then from there I was like that's what I need. And then the first kind of console I actually owned of my own, kind of like desire. I was my piers too, so got up hears when I was a gift and terms it's Ford was a gift as all, but my peers too, was my was my baby bro. That's what I loved. Still love it to this day. Yeah, I've still got my PSTWO, but it's I don't know what happened, but it just stopped working one day. So so I don't you guys know if as possible to fix all consoles, because all the Games are there and it's just so annoying. I just there and then the consoles catching us. I'm sure it's wrong with it, I'm sure, as if people just say do that restoring? Yeah, I've a quick Google, I'm sure. I'm sure you find some stuff. So because night sometime nostalgia hits in it and it's like, yeah, I can played the game that start to pack be hitting Jack and back still what Jack next to the originals on there the first rutch and clank. I mean look, Bro, that console was a console of greatness. Toud's ready to share your original console purchases back in the day, and a lot of my earliest gaming experiences didn't involve anything else purchased for me because my mom just didn't believe...

...in that. Something for like my male cousins and stuff to indulge in, not me. But I remember my dad. I was staying with him and he had a dream past and the PS one, and I because I didn't. It's kind of funny because I can't stand sports games now, but I love my earliest gaming memories were entirely sports games because it was what my dad was playing. So I remember, HMM, spent hours playing knockout, kings, Beifa, all those ones, and it was by made. Yeah, I can't stantle remember. I remember, like genuine me having so much fun playing defund ninety eight, like a bang it out. So my game. Yeah, even after I went back home off the seeing my dad, I was like can I have three four? I love that game. But I also took him into getting the spiral and that was more like my cup of tea. Now Mega man legends one of my favorite games. I bought Sonic Adventure, the first one, which to me was the greatest thing in the world, but obviously is an adult. That my actual first console, if Hank held's count, was a game boy color. So I remember at the time my cousins well, let's have that. Yeah, I'm mo or less grow up with them, and they all got one each. So like I got that was enough to pursuade my mom. But I also want one. I got pokemon crystal on that. I love that game and I nick with that game is probably in Nigerias somewhere. Many of our games Polka for following day six games. But yeah, there's are my earliest memories of PS. One game boy color, June cast. Yeah, I was. What were your favorite games? Were those consoles, I and would you consider them cult classics, or would you not? Back in the day, us to play quite a few games, not that I classed and was cult classics. But yeah, just be interesting to kind of hear what you guys consider classics today that you know that hit the nostalgia bag. I mean for me, I think I feel like I got pretty lucky in the sense that a lot of the games I started playing, started off playing as a kid, were actually good Games. They want just good games to me. But when I was a little we didn't really look at reviews because obviously Internet wasn't that available. Magazines only came once every often and you can't afford a magazine when you're six years old. Yeah, I think for me, some too pound pocket money. One's in it or now. Yeah, I leg I used to save my dinner money for her intend official magazine. So it was it was free pound fifty. So it mean it meant that I had to say two days the same, no lunch for two days. Yeah, for two days work that magazine. Absolutely well, I've still got I've still got more. But my first game, I mean the Games I played, I played, obviously gus. The first game I ever owned for myself was golden eye, which is still play too today. I mean it's got a massive speed running community. People still playing it. If you go on Youtube and just look at Golden I, double o seven and sixty four speed running, you'll see the numbers on those videos are ridiculous. Zelda legend is Zodo careerent of time was one of the first Games I was playing. I played I remember growing up with Tirok, to rock, to seeds of evil, which I would consider a cult classic. I'm not sure how well that Games was received at the time, but I know now people you know, speak quite well of it. And then I remember playing quake sixty four, which is a cult classic, to pokemon stadium. So it was mostly in sixty four games for me that I initially, initially grew up playing. I played a couple game boy games. I had obviously Super Mario Land, pokemon yellow. Yeah, I feel like I got pretty full. I was pretty fortunate in the fact that I most of the Games I had were actually good Games. Yeah, I had picked them on yellow as well, but then I remember my bit my game boy got stolen, so I never got to finish the level over again. So that still burns to look today. You know what's funny? The funny thing is that back then theft of video games was a rife by it was so rife lat games used to be stolen, people wh stop stuff. Okay, someone's house. You go someone's house to do play, play,...

...date, play, fun and you leave like only one game that you came with. What is that? Literally? Literally, but it's it's hilarious because it doesn't happen. I mean not to my knowledge. It doesn't really happen now, I feel I feel like because people mostly pick play by themselves. Yeah, online, over the Internet. Yeah, kind of everyone come round, let's play. Doesn't happen anymore. So I was watch. Yeah, not. My gameboy got stolen at school, which even which was even worse, and the person who stole it helped try to help me find it. No M met, because I know if you guys used to have like games day, that every year, where you kind of just be on your toys, and we did. Thank yeah, yeah, yeah, and I remember being my fresh game boy that had received just that summer to games day, but all the Games but poke him on yellow Super Mario de lots, all that stuff, or playing and you're them stupid trayses time in primary school, you just put all your stuff in there, your books, so long time comes out and everyone says put your games away. So I me put my little game in the in my trail with my name on it. I come back after lunch is gone. Teachers did even help. You know, everyone's bag. Sorry. Yeah, my mom was too smart for that, man, she's too previous. She said look, son, that you're playing. I keep them at home. These people be stealing same hopeless one hundred pounds. It even myice to sleep my games. I think my games in. I used to, but I want used to hide them and I realize that I can't be looking for places and remember. I'm sure in it like for most of my life I was like five forts, nine in it. So she's Haign on top of fridges. I can't find that in bres, on cupboards, I can't find that in. So she just take it in the morning, discippared, and I'll get it back when I get home. Brave. Never lost a console, never lost the game in my life. That's when the trust issue start, man. I was just like someone in this classroom has mine hasn't a game. But Yeah, how about you, poller? Yes, fruit she w the similar. For me, cult classics from the would be like the Games I had when I first got my sixty four was, I said, supermaro sixty four, maracart sixty four. I love them games dearly. I'd have you know. Play a few three friend specially Mary Cart. That amount of friendships that came to it came to head when it came to America. Imagine as kids as well, just they're played battle songs as well. Yeah, I've got good memories of their games. All side and six four'd like a creed of time. Love the game matures mosque, which is one of my self favorites older games as well. I'd say it's a cult classic as well. For the occatone, it had other games also had. was like it was mostly just made the first party, the tender game like Super Donkey Kong sixty four on the rega that by Jo Kazoo. I can that one's always out hold close to my heart. But Yeah, I've been lucky as well with most of the Games that I've managed to you know, try make my parents to get one. Untie, the uncles were usually were games that were actually some of the best that they had in there. Sixty four I did have the rare one like I think I didn't retually get my drawers. Moss. I did ask some of them are stucles, to get beforehand, but they got me Lego racis instead like a racism, when I was just like that's you know, it's just still, you know, say thank you for the game. All right, I didn't play a bit. Damn that game. Of probably if I look like it and I was from me too, like good, yeah, and I'll be lucky less most mo. Majority the Games I had work called classics and I did up a couple of sports games, as we even I do it to this day, like the world up ninety eight game. Yeah, I had that one I've ever used to make a striker and my names. I used just take points of all other players, just make him like superstar, stacked in stats. But yeah, I was saying as I soccer, you know. You know what I just sucker. Sixty four was. It's one of my first Games. I was actually really good game, but but it hilarious. It was the names of the players. Yeah, Oh, yeah, by that one letter or something that it still remember some of the names. I remember him. Ronaldo was a lager. So let's give one Nader name exactly. Yeah, it was that it was ridiculous. Some of them namesmen, but for me, I think a lot of mine were a bit we're a bit different in it because obviously I was playing. I was bang up here s one. So obviously spiral was the one. I think it was not richts revenge, the pisto one, I believe. I think we'll just spire into the dragon actually, and then crush bandy coo and then crush bandy cost the dragonfly into the dragonfly. Sorry, but I apologize. That's the pisto...

...one as well. Actually, but it's look place it. How many spor agans would replace station? It was just spiral one. That was a placation. I think most income pist to know. No, no, I'm sure every see was on plization. Yeah, that's borrow free, I'm sure now, because that means that is they must I don't know. then. Let me I was death spiralty was definitely in playstation one. Ripdos revenge, yeah, it was. Yeah, okay, I rememblay riptos over injury. Yes, so come and head but MR money bags and you drop all these kinds for you or gems. That was a good game. Abes world. I hated Teken. Let me not forget taken when you could bounce people with like Jack's first kind of black and you're bounce. You brother. I love the game, but you could be cheap with Eddia. Just kind of couple and just kind of just smash buttons. I rembi kingles for the talented players, unless you could do he's like a limited Combo which has been there for ever, basically. But yeah, I think that that was that was a startup my pit like gaming. I think those are the best games I had on piers one and obviously I had my game by just my stand the game boy and add warrior. Well, I believe it was. was never good platforms at that age. But pokemon and started my very, very, very very long, lasting a fair POKEMON Games. Pokemon read. I think I cried. I bout that. Actually I generally cried such a weird, weird, okay, okay, okay. I enjoyed the game so much. I was that wow, pokemon in there. I'll sell spent time which on TV and to kind of get it and play it and become my yours pokemon. I go poke on blue. Yeah, Rob, that's when I started my love for water pokemon. But yeah, now that those are the games that I believe I still caught classics ses day. It's that's for me, I think. I think I got started on gaming breeps One and June cast, like I said, fun as the Piers One Games, I think definitely mega man legends, especially since you can still feel like the loss. It's the fans to this day about the lack of megaman legends. Three and it's consulation. Nothing to do with that. Mario Kart sixty four. I had them. I actually own an in sixty four, but a lot of my gaming experiences were tied to basically spending every weekend at my cousin's house and they had every console. So I think in terms of that I got started with the PS one. It's really nintended that made me get into gaming. I think when I'm still like a game and now I think definitely acuing of time, like Chris and Fumier said, though, I think open up times. She wasn't my first other game. My first other game was wind wake up, so I was like kind of late in the timeline, but it was the collector, disgusting by the way, disgusting anyway. It was the collected edition on Gamecube. It was been wreaking on one disk and the request. Yeah, yeah, the quest, but that don't make I still love that game. I paid Gaul and then nothing of time. Then enjoys mask, and that was what set en often to that. And Yeah, so, guys, of all those culd classics that you've named, which ones would you say had the best music soundtracks? Yes, Christie, no, no, yeah, even got a pick one. Now you just want only. I've got a pink one. Yeah, well, yeah, one, only, that one that hits Thestylgia, but hit the bag. It's hard, man, it's hard. Hiquie, fast to say the one, the soundtrack, the video game soundtrack, that probably hits the most. Nostalgia or don't are common basis. I'd probably say it would be street fighter. To that's a good I probably say it to I never actually owned sheet fire, the end of the original sheet fight too, by supplot my cousins. I remember we'd spend hours literally because back then the game manuals didn't tell you how to do the moves. You had to just hear from word of mouth. So we were having all sorts of rumors about how to do a sonic boom we heard that there's this sonic boom in the game, this mysterious moves really powerful. We try pressing all the buttons, we tried everything and I'm never, I never forget one time we gave up trying to learn this move. I'm my cousin's dropped the controller and a sonic boom is cut as come out and we've both looked at each other like, has that really happened? Like he actually done it. But yeah, man, from all the different themes, the boss themes,...

...stage themes, I think street fighters probably got the most iconic music out of the Games I issue played as a youngster. Polly, what about you? Number One? Game One, you know, probably I'll give it as the games as a kid. I'M gonna give it to probably your CARENA. I'm yeah, I'll give it a cree a time had so really like legend and classic feeds that they still used to be like. I got the like Sorya Song in the game. That's probably one of my most worry one story song and the temple time. I could go through, to go through a lot of actually be that is all by years old, as Lullaby longer stores or yes, I would definitely saw storms as well. That one't yeah, that one hits differently, but yeah, probably just I'll give it a Creena time. That's a hard question, though, prime, you, prime, you can only name one game, one classic of a banging soundtrack. I mean I think everyone that knows me knows probably the one that want to pick its probably going to pokemon. Oh, come on up, stars, Smash your face and lie let's fight every location right now. Okay, looking should but no, it was. It was Defo pokemon man like that, without which Pokemon, pokemon blue. Okay, I'm blue, all right. Like, honestly, I think most like from that one. Just from hearing them. I think even you're like, you know you're doing that talk, Professor Oak, at the beginning, like that's most iconic and you can hear like the eight bit sort of sound that is got. I think I really enjoyed that. Even now, thinking about was kind of gets me a little bit happy. HMM HMM, tod's coming to you now. One Game I didn't from my but it was around a sort of period I was talking about. So Sonic one played for the first time on game board minds, because I think, I think the original platform was severy genesis. Yeah, I just say Genesis, but I did play it for the first time in game boy advance and yeah, I think that soundtrack definitely it's still it still holds up today, and it does is like an injection of no star jevery time I hear it, especially spring yards zone, and just how it just you can hear the body branding and everything like that. Like I've played it so many times and every kind of they on my phone, I played it on PC. Yeah, it's just, yeah, sonic one. So when you guys think about all the cult classic games and the soundtracks, that obviously carries off the STYGIA and then like turn out of ten, when you think about the games that are being made now, do you guys think that in like ten fifteen years time, they will map their soundtracks will match up to the same level of nostalgia as one you used to play? Unlikely? It is not too unlikely, I feel like, not that they don't take music seriously anymore, but there was a massive back in a day. There was a massive push for like themes, so having a song attached to a level or a character. There was a lot of that. So it's very easy to identify. Like you hear a song, you know, okay, this is gas team. Oh, you hear us, you hear a song, Oh yeah, this is elder's lad by. Recent songs have really, really great soundtracks, but they all seem to just kind of set the tone for the story. It's more like a it's more like a movie. I mean there's a lot of there's a there's a lot of good soundtracks out and I mean we have to do is look at most trip waiters are come out today. But when it comes actually naming these songs, you're going to really struggle with a lot of them. They're just not as iconic, I feel I don't know, I don't know, I doubt it. I really doubt it. I just don't feel like they're they're as iconic, I feel like, especially with the old school era, when they had like, you know, the eight bit tunes and the Midi Tunes, it was like they had they had to be very passionate about what kind of sounds they were making. Are Putting a lot of work. It was very, very difficult because you had a very, very limited platform to work with. So there's a lot of very like it. The themes were really really massive, like they're just a big bill, almost as big as the game in a lot of aspects, whereas now, I feel like gaming his now push to more monetizing. Yeah, you...

...know, as visually impressive as possible, focusing on gameplay. It's not. I don't think it's quite the same anymore anyway. Yeah, she just going off on that point. What do you think the main focus, what kind of scope when it turns in terms of producing games today? What's on aspects around that, would you say? Or most effort is put into nowadays looke boxes? I can't like that is a pis actually, I would say right now it seems to be that. Seems it's just be a massive push from marketing, in my opinion, just to get the game out there and get popular. I feel like once you can sell the game, you've pretty much done your bit. Yeah, I don't think there's much care. I think, yeah, very few companies care about like the after care all the time at the full game package. Like I'm a for example, square enixs will put together like a loosely decent story, maybe some decent mechanics, but everything go behind the marketing budget. Until you guys like yeah, have funded that, don't care, but can't? You can't. For me personally, I feel like you can't put a game out to have D lc if you his bare bones, if it's like that's what that's what you want to be. The final article. Like how can you buy a game and it's not complete? Yeah, and that's it, like yeah, yeah, it doesn't make sense to me. I agree with that completely. A lot of a lot of companies our days. They'll put are like a very base level, maybe eight hour story, and then so you sixteen rounds off of Adams and say, yeah, that's the that was actually what was meant to be in it. But it's more make more money for so good. I remember. I remember street five. Five shipped without a story mode. Oh, yes, I remember this is well, you fight five shipped without a stiming and it wasn't. It wasn't a big deal for me personally, but for the majority of people who are going to play casually, play fighting games for a story or maybe they're just trying to learn more after place you fire for it's like how can the game ship without a story mode? Fair enough, put it out as a free as a free download. Are On after after like three, four months, but it's like the damage was done, that you've shipped an incomplete game, like there's no reason why a game should ship incomplete. This is this issue of sorry, go through. I think that's a difference to you a lot of what this generation will our previous generation was like. There wasn't such thing as DLC's and that you know. I mean they had to shift. You a complete game, or or your game is neph like, your game is shy, like that wasn't doubt that. Oh yeah, spend sixteen pounds and get for more characters, or Oh yeah, we're going to add in a seventeen our story as as addition, I broke if your game wasn't like substantial and like if look, we look about like the like the original, find a fan series that were across the pass one like those were splittings like God knows how many discs, like because they want to complete the story in one day. Look at final fancy seven. Now the remake. That's split into two separate games, not DLC's, two separate whole games. Obviously it doesn't make sense. What I will say? I'm going on from that point. I've heard the argument that, like for example, if you take the street fight series, back in the day you had what like a billion different inservations of shot fire to shoot fire, to set by two, turbo super shoot fire to super shoe fire to turbo hyperfighting, all sorts, and the problem was that these are all ship there's new games and all of these games were full price at forty pounds. So I have heard the argument that at least now they can do DFC. Yes, stops you from getting completely fleeced. It gives you an option to, you know, go forward in the story or add extra content for, you know, a marginal price. But still it's it's everything is it's almost every single game. Yeah, almost every single game, and I guess for the game companies as well, they just see it as you know, well, if it works, it works. So I guess the kind of question falls back on the consumers. HMM. I guess if you dont on more than you can expect more from these companies. But you know, these days were just so much into just consuming, playing the game and then moving on to the next thing. I'd say maybe perhaps just applies more to the newer generations than maybe the older ones, but I guess whatever makes the money and it's so. I then that determines the level of effort that they were put into developing it when it compared to before. Yeah, to piggyback off this, this point about how this seemed to have been more care in terms of themes and soundtracks back in the day, I think while some new releases do have the potential to, I think the held as classics in the future. I think of person of...

...five and how, I guess iconic beneath the mask and last surprise, I've become like easily identifiable with the series. I think like the Velobert Room, which has been a long lasting theme for all the all the Games, I think since the first one in early S. I think it just depends on the genre. But yeah, for sure I think it is less. It's not as important nowadays. I think about lack of care and trigger for example, it's the it's got themes that have been sampled by rappers. Nowadays it's like, really like it's really have been held up and at the time of I think at the time it came out, they're just the amount of like tracks and sound effects that were available. It was just unprecedented and even for games are more modern, like ace attorney. I think the first game came out under game by advance, and I think like the udid design, like the music aside ORSO, like sound effects, is like one of the greatest aspects of the series. And I think, yeah, definitely, it seems like it's just about the whole commercialization, I think, of the industry. Like even with things like remakes and things like, it's just about updating the graphics, making anything like shine and new, bringing out the new thing and then moving on like it's just stuck. The industry is just changed, and I think that's why that is changed. Yeah, Mon, it's all about the money's not saying it wasn't about the money back then, but I think now it's. I think maybe because we're older and more aware of just how things will work, we can just put it back down to money just been like the driving fact as to why just the gaming industries operates the way it does now, and industry is a lot bigger than it was in the S. it's huge and I think it's overtaking the film industry. Yeah, yeah, I think it's because it's just gotten so big. So obviously money is going to be the main factor. I mean it has been because at the end of the day it's an industry, but I think it's just taking up everything else because it is so big, it makes so much money now. Well, I never thought that I would be bigger than the film in beautiful, the fool for a wharfing. HMM. It's really especially now they've got stuff like that. As excited should all these games as well, mobile gaming as well. Yeah, but quite yeah, just next up, just still in the same similar topics. Do you guys have any gaming mascots, like in general, or is it just like not, like these new games? Is No mask, there's no mascots to even be rooting for. Personally, I feel like the Mascot area, that mascot era, was a product of the nine yeah, I feel like it wasn't just gaming mascots. For example, you had mascots for, you know, cereals, restaurants. Yeah, you know, TV shows, TV channels, all sorts around that same time. HMM. And you know, naturally gaming would have the same kind of themes going on. I mean during during a night, is what the same late's nice. Yeah, Mario Sonic, not going to say bubbsy, but BUBBS. He was there. I guess what's Bubbsy? What's that? Bubbsy, the cat. Probably just don't want you probably don't want to know. Two birth weight from where? Madka, God, Nice, man busy a's actually getting any game coming out on Steve? Yeah, so that let's just keep it rolling, man. No, no, want to see nobody's mob because, in fact, the Boby game on the UN sixty four was like one of the worst games ever made. Yeah, is that just your operiod? Look at the game play on Youtube primarily. Yeah, worst game ever made, I bet. I'm looking forward to that. One one of the worst things. We're gonna do the worst game Olympics one day and just bring a series of all four our yes, I'm for that. That's that's something gets tallest. You know what we do? You know we do? We buy these games that we play. The God forbid your back to when money, hold, hold on, hold driver does that on release? Hold on, hold on, don't hold on. Miss Discusses Properly a minute and I don't play consistently bad games at my game will produce up that once I put that one bad game so I can talk about how bad it was in jer you might using jump stars as one reference at Games. Crocker Shite and judge Ar game. Eventual Games actually be a pretty shure too, but whatever. Yeah, in terms of mascots, something that that are is dead. I...

...know people, I mean I know so many tried with with sack boy. I've really tried this someone before that. Actually, I can't remember. You in a pierce one era. But didn't they have like often those at the pierced one over those crushed suddenly had the nose spiral. That came as a and then Alex. that was it. Yeah, and I remember Microsoft had one as well, CROC. Yeah, was it was before now crocose mics, crack, procose, xbosos and yeah, she thought was before Xbox, afore we came out on the piers. One was a little I'm not it might have, but you know, you don't. Yeah, like they don't really have anything. They didn't have anything. They would just trying to build up back then. Yeah, I mean master chief became their mascot, but he's a bit because you don't. Yeah, he's a bit too adult to be a mascot. Yeah, I feel like that was all part of the night's kind of act. Yeah, era, where you had like all the missed like, I won't know, Crocornia, this one and yeah, that's game boy colors, I said. Yeah, yeah, I think it's like if you look at didn't know why I didn't. Didn't Microsoft had the time splitters in the that cat, the cat that sucked up. Oh, I know what, I know that cat. I remember the fuck cat. Yeah, holding the xbox cat. Let's just have a quick Google's name, believe Blake. Yeah, thanks, the cat banks with terrible man. Yeah, like, if you look at a sonic, for example, sonic is like the epime of s kid dream role model. Yeah, he's got attitude, doesn't listen to Whoo, who is running? You could he has slip back, like there's a lot of similarities, not similarities, between like sonic and like bought Simpson, for example. Yeah, yeah, kind of like. I don't of the same kind of error, but that's all gone, muscle gone. You don't really have that. Even if you look at like the most successful mascots, like Mario, for example, and Mutch and Click Matt, like my example, put right cla slide and a sliding mediocrity. But you like slight Cooper get out of here you're saying that he's a massive. Yeah, it's a mascot, all right, he's okay, all right, all right, but yeah, even like Mario, as much of a mascot as he is, I wouldn't say he, you know, encapsulates exactly what Nintendo is at the moment. I feel like it's a lot bigger than Mario. Now Mario's become his own brand and he's he's still massive, but he's become more of a part of Nintendo rather than, you know, the main, the main, you know, the main Harrot Front, the front run of the whole show of Nintendo. But yeah, that's got areas. Area is completely gone. Yeah, I agree with your point. And then I also think about just a difference in markets. So I think location wise, I think in some areas they may may still kind of beat that element to certain extent. I've been to Japan twice now and every time I go day just go on the street and you're just seeing bear mascots everywhere for just different stuff, the only gaming but you know, anime film as well. So I think, well, it is very much an older, much you know, ninet s thing kind of associated with Pitt certain time period. I still think it is still that kind of element there that may not be, as you know, prominent where we are like in terms of location. Is there anyone, you'd say, like even in Japan, that comes across as a mascot? Oh, definitely, go to go COO's their mascot for life. You Go Japan, yeah, and you just see, you'll be seeing dragon wall cafes, pop up stores or Dragon Ball. Much he's just everywhere and I found, MMM, you know, what we've with Goku, for example. I feel like he's extremely popular, but I mean, I mean when I went, he was everywhere. Yeah, like especially like a Kibara. But the thing is with with anime that it's so rich and diverse that I don't think he could he could actually be a mascot for it, for anime all, my God, any couldn't be an at. You couldn't be your mascot for you know, even the genre, the action genre anime, because it's becomes so big at this moment on, has become so big that it...

...just one mascot wouldn't be enough. Pretty much. It's just grown so much. You look at the game in industry. But then it wasn't actually that diverse. A lot of games are very, very similar. Majority of games are like platformers. You didn't have the FBS genre on consoles. You didn't have like real time strategies. There's only a limited style of gaming you could have, and so everything just seemed to be really skins of what the most successful mascots were doing. Mario was doing a side scoring a platform, or so everyone else trying to do the same thing, trying to make a new mascot, trying to blow say with the RPG's. I mean you had the final fantasy's doing really well. Every other jrpg is pretty much doing the same thing. It's almost like a pilot spot with different story, different characters. But yeah, I'm not sure. I'm not sure. I think the whole mascot thing it is very location dependent, like being as Chris said, having mascots as far as video games were concerned was very much in nt s thing in the West. That Nice, and they having mascots to represent brands is very much the thing that's rife in Japan. Like they even have mascots for towns and cities and be up and kind of like any kind of brand. You give me gover could be like, for toilet paper, they'll be a mascot depending company is. It's very much a Japanese thing. But in terms of games, I think there are still genres that have mascots like I don't know anyone here, maybe prime might know. Like when you play Mega Ten or percent of Jack Frost is like the Mascot Shemigan meten say games. He's like, if you see Jack Frost, you already know that which games? Yeah, I think in that stance and again, that's some Japanese video game series. I think that's why, because you can't really apply it to you. I'm trying to think of games that were developed in Europe or the US that this time now have what you could call a mascot attached to them. I can't really think of any other. carrotters themselves have become like massive now. Yeah, may from Drake from UNCHARD. Yeah, I said, yeah, you himself was like back a big enough character that even so you try to put some fa behind that, making him big as well. They've almost surpassed be mascot soon started to become like public figures. Has Been Back for the longest. I wasn't the issue should yeah, and identities. So, seeing as ow mascots is almost practically a thing of the path and was used as a tour to market and encourage people to buy games, what kind of things it's, what type of aspects of in a game now would make you buy the game? I mean, I mean for me it would have to I mean gamings all relative at the end of the day, but I'd have to be something that kind of aligns with the Games I've played in the past that I know how good. I feel like it's hard to take a risk these days because of the fact that games are so expensive and usually they demands so much time from you. So you know, buying a game can be a big commitment. If you're buying a game for what we'll say, sixty pounds and the game is a hundred hours long to complete, you want to be you want to be sure that that game is going to be worth your time. You don't want to get to the end of it and regret playing that game. So usually what I try and look for is I'll stick to drumres I like. So for me that would be, you know, Fighting Games, FPSS, R pgs. To an extent, those are the ones I'd usually spend the most time on and then I would look at, you know, what people would, journalist that I know may have similar opinions to me, say about those games. Yeah, so obviously. I mean we're in a really heavy review culture. I mean, I mean one thing I've tried to do use limit the amount of reviews I look at, because I do understand that some reviews aren't exactly accurate. Some reviewers show a lot of bias, but I will look at what certain what some you know outlet's say about certain games. I feel like that's important for me if I'm going to invest in a game. And then I tend to look at stuff like, you know, the time to complete it, how it looks and watch videos and Youhube see the gameplay. Box are is there? Is there a demo, but are you know what? One thing I found about boxer I feel like games that have really good box are tend to be good games. I don't know what that is. I feel maybe because if they put, if...

...they put in in that effort into the box, I means they can put in, you know, similar effort into the game. Is Weird, apart from the King Heart series, which has great box up but or full games? Yeah, apart from Kim Hearts. So you're not going to buy miles moreleis. Chris, you know I'm probably not. Not. Not because the box are not because the box are in fact, I haven't actually played the first, the spidermount of PSFOUR. I still needs to play that, man. I've tried so hard to complete that game. I just can't get to it. Yeah, but I remember. I'm the last spider man game. I played those on them, the Gamecube spider man too. Yeah, a lot. That was the last good spider man before this Spiderman released. Yeah, a good game. But now yeah, I agree with I agree with your points. That I mean for me, like as you guys say, Oh, I play game slightly different in the sense that I look for games that, firstly, I generally would enjoy to go. I mean in the sense that a lot of guys I would tend to buy like our pugs are bags. I'll always cop on RPG that I think is worth while. A lot of scare next ones I'll probably play because they do have a good track record. Of OURPG Games. Tried for my first for it wasn't the bull episona series recently and that was amazing. So I know that. Okay, now I've got that kind of in the back of my head. Our puds are great. But then, like when I'll cut other games, I think I'm very diverse palettes. I don't really have specifics. But if I'm keeping it real, if screatings has some form of Handner, as much as I think they're a mixed bag, I don't mind probably pick up what they put out at the time. Think the things that determine whether I buy a game or not. I think if it's a franchise I already love, then I'm going to take a chance on it. Yeah, because, like you know, I don't want to waste my money. Nowaday so much. I would rather just stick with the franchises I love. But if I want to venture outside of that, the things I look at our whether it's like it's going to have a good multiplayer, if it's that kind of game. So I think the order I get, the more I just want to play with my friends. Yeah, especially since online is made that easier. So, like I think spot too kind of unlocked that because I just have so much fun playing online. Like I don't I only play online. It's pursuing to. If I see another game that has that kind of capability, I'm more like most likely going to check it out. Like with them. Ninjalla when it came out, I still haven't bought I will, because I'm man, I hate the last. Sorry, Ninja let right, I will try it. We'll see. Me Genres I like as well, like GEOPG's. That's fine, I'll if I see any geopodius and homm out, I'll probably check it out. But I think more than that it will be whether any critics I follow online, especially on twitter, if they have good things to say about a game I'm most I'm more likely to check out. Let Chris, I'm definitely try and like in none in date myself with reviews, but I tend to trust like passing reflections. Someone tweets on the Game Alis is really good. I really like this. I'll take that too hard, guess, and that will make me check out. Something about you, Pino Games, makes you right. What makes you buy a game? This bit me by Nintendo? Yeah, yeah, see, if I do put a lot different games, I think I just like to look at the look at the bit up towards a game. I do look at the developers well, and the publishers who are publishing the game, and I would watch really mostly like game pay videos hands or and see other views where it seems like a game I'll get and I'm usually I always look for with games. I like the game played, look at the Gameplay for the game. I'm always for Gameplay and as to as well. I like what we play against, the play with my friends more so these days as well as well as I do. If it's a game that play by myself, as usually going to be an RPG. So I look for what it offers. When I'm mighty player aspect, I look at what kind of game, the Gameplay wise, and I usually tendsive go for games that the gameplay looks like it's going to be great. Over then it just looks like, you know, a specish esthetic pleas and damn back my English there. It's not every other guys, but yeah, I'm more of a person. I don't visuals. Visual can be good and all, but in the gameplay is not matching, then I'll probably wouldn't get a game that hasn't got the gameplay matching the visual. So but um, yes, many things, and I'm people like to go for the you know, we got in fast. You go for your brands that you most trusted, the people love and stuff. Is what I do. Seem to see that with me as games as well, I do play some indie titles, Bill...

News. You go to like a brandow know, or the benefit? I had no trust. The Games never let me down. So yeah, was there any last minute points you guys wanted to cover before wrapping everything up to the best? I'm topics. Don't. I was gonna ask a question. Actually. What Games did you guys play as kids that you like, really loved that? You grew up and found out that everyone said, of a shit. Do you know what I'm gonna say? I adventure one, sonic adventure two. So the cures as heroes. Is that bad? I don't think it was bad, but a lot of people said it was teats. Chris, looking your eyes, you but fun enough actually, based on the cars. I enjoyed it, but I do it as well. Joined it too, but it's bad. I love something adventure to as well another gain. I'll Mao strikers smash strike as well. That's a good game. That's a good game. I enjoyed that. People have said this man game. We got decent reviews, sweat both both games and the initial and struck has charged. Yeah, when I was on the way in it. Yeah, again, I played and found I was enough later on. I don't know what I was trying. I don't really have the choice of play and Shit Games. I've paid. It was given to me. So you actually went out and started by a Shit Games. Hold on, hold on. If firstly, I don't play Shit Games like fuck you by the paper, the by the boot. Oh, I don't know, I can't think of any games I actually used to play that up now considered shit, but got quite a few. Actually list them. Okay, I think the biggest one was probably a game called Day Katana. Sound find it was. It was by the guy who made quick, I believe, quick or do, but it was. I can't remember his name. He's like a really popul in the game industry, or back then anyway. And this is meant to be like the next big big thing, next big first person shoot. I'm sure there was guns and swords and all sorts in that game, but I remember really, really enjoying that game. I just play it with my family friends, wearing up because they just used to get games all the time. We spent a lot of time in that game and I'll never get I think I was watching like a watch Mojo and it was like the most like underwhelming games of the s or something, and that was like number two or number one. I was like, what the Hell, I love this game. Where's go look at the reviews. Yet they it got panned, like ridiculously panned, poor reviews of seeing like their ties and stuff like that. And then obviously sonic a CH to battle on game to you again that I loved cult classic. I love that game two bits. I knew there was issues, but they didn't really seem to be great game breaking from me at a time. And then you go back and you look at reviews, you watch a better gameplay. It was a really bad games, really really bad game. Yeah, Coolhen you're younger. Your eyes are just shining in it. You don't even close, you just enjoy it. Yeah, yeah, it was another question. What's the worst game in purchase you've made? Oh, there's two men shut of the Hedgehog. You bought that, but I'm boy it like you guys. Yeah, wrote shadow had a gun. I was like Dan was like kid going to tea. Yeah, come off your edge, Lord Mascot Bro he had a gun. The this is this is meant to hear what. This is different. So, yeah, let me get this. Neverget that. That video where shows you right, tunds up the MP the mpcs. They got Bob Oh all. I played some terrible games. I think a lot of the dies to are a series of a pretty Badmucu warriors all stars. And he and you bought these Games. Okay, so fast. If firstly, first he hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on. There's some games that you know are categorically bad but they're just decent enough for you to just sink time and just forget about...

...in and buy them hotel to remember Games back then night say could did it, so it wasn't that bad. I wasn't that bad. Okay, I forgot. I forgot, Bill Gates. How many days of skipping lunch money would that paid for? Not, man, but I used this. I was. I was the kid back in the day. Man, I still buy and sell such lunch mills. Imagine how the Dynasty Warriors. Okay, disourse is dicey rose. I wrote. DISOURSE is a playstation classic, because it's actually on the playstation hits. I don't know how hustling, or so I like it, waded. Yeah, explained. I'm just telling that. Make it for the playstation hit. So it was all right, fine, a fight see type. Oh, awful game massive. I didn't actually buy my in fact, and, Druma, I'm not like to myself hard crush. It was dire. Well, yeah, I mean games you bought with your own money. Ring, I think the Division One didn't like that game. I look, this is gonna up until recently. Bro, he's talking like he's shocked. Yeah, but every now and then you make a bad purchase and you say what it is. That like what I think I was again, I bought and okay, so I think the worst game I've ever ball and I know you enjoys. I'm expecting the kind of the HAH like what you bought. That game was the black clover Quartet nights game. Use Me Prim for are you okay, sous? You go through something? He me out. Have met me. There's no way. Somebody who's say goodbye that game. He me out have met yeah, I played the Bay and the batter was amazing. Obviously ID was really good at it and it's as I can't. Let me get that game, like it's better than that Naruto borrito strikers or whatever that stupid game is. I was like, okay, like this, this game's decent in it and then what about time I got it, no one was playing it. Sounds like this is awful and I was at something Ca. So just very stiff, like it's it was just a bit of a stiff game overall, and I said that. I think that was the point. I said, look, I'm sick and tired of disappointing myself of anime games. Can't you get swindered by black cloth, a game exactly over you knowing, asking me again. That what's like cloth. It's what you deserve. Yeah, man, Stephanie is a boy. I hate you guys. I think for me, my wife's purchases, I mean the last bad purchase I made anthem, which was a decision I quickly rectified. Yeah, that most of us de Yeah, let me complete that one. Laugh, friends and not belie him, and we all enjoyed that at the time for a bit. That will playing it endod I enjoyed the debate and enjoy the Beata. I really enjoyed the beer, but it just got really boring. It was just not enough content. But the Classic Games are played that I really regret by him. First one was game and watch gallery advance. Get this yet, because it was basically I don't know if you know the old game will watch. Yeah, I know the Other Watch yet dad that knows of games, and Blah, blah. And this game and watch gallery advances a Gameway Vance version, essentially, where it had the classics and it had some modern takes, modern takes on the classics. We have Mario Characters, Mary so, like Marie Luise, you Princess Peach. And what made this purchase so bad wasn't that I bought this game, but it was a fact that I was meant to buy Yoshi's Island Mentor on game boy rance of not supply Yoshi's islands. I'm Yoshi's island, and then that's that. Listen, listen, I've seen I think the remember those. Doesn't add campaign going for Yoshi's island at time. This was a very, very long time ago, and it was like, I think it was like a football match and someone kicks a ball and is that Yo she's egg. It's like really, really big. But I was set on buying this game. Literally went to woolwbs so going by this game and then I got there and I've seen game, watch gallery next to it and say, HMM, beer in mind, this is the time, maybe, maybe a very, very much. This is the time before like reviews were like really available. And then it's like, I think Nintendo official magazine came out every is it wasn't my house. Was it monthly? Yeah, I feels month. I'm sure. Yeah, it was every month. So obviously they'll be times in between that where you wouldn't see certain things. But what happened was I'd seen, oh, it's got like fifty games in one and I've seen your sit island is one game. This is got fifty games and it's got married on the front of it, so it can't be that bad. Might be there. And so I've bought game and watch guy advanced and it was terrible, absolutely terrible.

Anything worse than that. was me buying legends of wrestling. I think. I generally think wrestling games have been shit, like consistently. No, but this was from this. This was bought during the era where wrestling the games were good. Yeah, without like the but smack down, yes, it was okay. Yeah, and the original gate, but they'll smack down, you know. Yeah, smack down here comes to pain. Even that. It's sixty four some good wrestling games, war zone, ECW revenge, but this, ledgers are wrestling, was possibly the worst wrestling game ever made. I remember that game. Actually, it was a game. I remember the reviews as world yet gave bombs. Yeah, I can't be bull that. I still have. Still got it now. That is fair enough. Yeah. Well, I'm just trying to think worst game in purchases I've made because I said, said at the hedgehogs there. Yeah, like I said, the gate, that God Swede me be sold that. I was like, yeah, I want this game. How I was involved, right, I'm sure, even what let like. I'm the booklet as well. You know then, guys, I like the look of it as well. Yeah, I know that was stupid purchase, looking at what it's once the game shadow a gun. It was a wrap. I was like, Damn, this is this is the future of it doesn't really don't really. The only game I can think of, anthem, goes about saying anyway as well, the original watchdogs, but then that game, I think because it was just hyped up. I got it, but then it wasn't really as good. If stuff would we but horrid. Think of much else? I can think of a friend that went when I told him to buy miracle, it wouldn't pot something soling boom. Instead, meant to see newsw yeah, that was yeah, that wasn't a list of worst voted games of the of the multies. This guy with about so the boom and I couldn't believe it. I didn't buy it, but my cousin did a bit and I played it Superman on and sixty four. Yeah, Oh my God, that gave barely a game like yeah, I'm sure that's one of the that's the worst. Gives the whole time. One of the time for sure. That game sonic six, sonic boom six's a minute of you look, please tell me want you look forwards are no, no, buy it by did play it my cousin. Boy, everything that game was a glitches have heaven of which is as bad as it is. I don't think you can be worse than big rigs. I don't remember. I don't know. Got Nice. Big Rigs is the worst racing game ever made. I think. I don't feel like they could be a worse game. It might be the worst game ever. Right, let's go see big rigs rate in big rig over the road racing it got eight percent by Meta critic. Yeah, eight percent and three point nine last not three point nine out of five is not bad, but by Meta critic is actually awful and any thirty four percent of people liked the game is awful. One Star Rating. Consistently. It's a it's a terrible game, terrible, terrible game. As I think that's you can actually drive, you can drive fast to reversing the you can going forwards.
