Who is your favorite game reviewer? I like these guys.
Yes, their name is a bit hilarious and yes, they are a bit dry. But God dammit, they are thorough

I like to hear them talk about consoles in general rather than hear them review games, for some odd reason. The latest episode about console modding was pretty interesting. I'd rather hear that than them reviewing some obscure, sub-par SNES game... "The controls are decent but a little slippery. The music is pretty good." It gives you a decent impression of if the actual game is worth playing, I suppose. But other reviewers seem to do a better job at making the actual review portions themselves a little more interesting, and sometimes they're interesting enough that I won't mind watching the whole review even if I have absolutely no intention of trying the game myself.

LGR and Gggmanlives are the two I usually watch. Neither are truly great at anything, but they have nice production values and can do good impressions (of Duke Nukem and Mark from CGR). I listen to Matt Chat interviews every now and then.

CGR Mark has very good taste in retro games, however the humor gets old quickly, he's always "bla bla bla, vecterx, bla bla bla, el camino, bla bla bla, flamethrower.

Other than that he's my favorite, I also like cinemassacre's Mike Matei.

I think that's because they usually cram so many reviews into one video. When they talk about consoles, they have more time to go into some history and give you some context, so it ends up being more interesting. LGR's pretty good about that, so I find his reviews more interesting. But Game Sack's format is good if you want to know the good and bad games on X console or in X category.

I don't really think that's why people watch retro reviews, generally. It's for the different perspectives and personal stories that come out of each reviewer. After all, if you're finding the reviews to begin with, you're likely familiar with the games in question.

You could learn more about individual games from someone like AVGN than you could from Game Sack. The only thing you could maybe consider thorough about their reviews is the quantity of games "covered".

Love Gamesack, they always create insanely quality videos that are both interesting, informative and original. They never talk about popular game unless its some obscure ass port or a comparison between versions.

CGR is great in general. Mark does need to make his review's a little less ramble-y.

AVGN is enjoyable and the Mike and James mondays are pretty cool but mike on his own causes me to gain brain tumors.

Alphaomegasin although more of a new released vidya guy has some of the best taste in games ever and is a fucking rad dude. Yes his face is weird and his hair is stupid, but he has the best taste in games I have ever seen.

LGR is ok but all his does is boring old PC stuff that everybody knows about or is a copy of an old game everybody knows about.

HVGN was the best for insight into games but over the last year all he has done is stream uploads and on the spot shit that sucks. His earthbound videos are perfect and his opinions are good and his HVGN reviews are amazing but he's been lacking.

Metaljesusrocks is ok but his guests are often shit or boring. His chin is also disgusting. Decent opinions but a little to general.

Pat The NES punk is one of my favourite retro reviewers. His podcast is amazing, his friend Ian is always right and on the spot. Flea Market Madness is also fun and interesting. He doesn't review much NES punk stuff anymore but still a good channel.

SomecallmeJohnny although not exclusively retro most of his content is and is good quality. He lets his fans decide some of his videos, he has good quality, goes into detail well, is skilled at games and interesting.

Gamechasers can go fuck themselves. Its like a really shitty pawn stars ripoff that is trying to be on TV but is way to boring, planned and WOW DRAMA to actually be anything. One of the worst youtube channels. Subscribe for the laughs.

Razorfist. A fucking faggot. Not sure why Alphaomegasin ever became friends with him. Never even go to his channel. Also shades inside.

JonTron reviews are great if you enjoy his sense of humor. He seems to deliver in his writing and acting. Most reviewers that try to be funny rely on the same type of character; either angry (AVGN style), aloofness/silliness, nerdy ultra dry jokes, or unnecessary commentary and references constantly.

The Completionist is also very good although the other guy that provides commentary is annoying as fuck.

Game Sack LOL. "This is one of my favorite games ever. I really love it. I've never made it past level two though." A couple of worthless casuals spitting WikiPedia factoids.

Pissed Pendejo--Where to even begin with this 'tard rocket. From the over-exaggeration of every word to his spastic flailing, he's probably the one I would most like to punch.

Game Chasers--I watched a video where they went to some dudes house to look through his doubles. One inbred pulls out a copy of Gargoyle's Quest 2 for the NES and remarks that he has one, and it doesn't show up very often, so he bought it. It doesn't come up very often because dumb fucks like you buy them every time you see them whether you need them or not.

Between the Johnny Come Lately posers and the mentally ill hoarders, the landscape is indeed bleak.

This is exactly why all my retro isn't flea market finds but craigslist, amazon, or eBay.

Craigslist is the ideal, since I can usually meet a guy somewhere and pick up the games i want for a bit more reasonable then eBay prices. I used to hunt the flea market scene but after awhile it was done. Had to make a fucking blind guess on what would be good because if you're not first on the scene you're pretty much SoL. So you take a look at the events happening, pick one, don't luck out, and then spend the rest of your sat or sun looking through trash other people didn't want. It wasn't for me and I stopped after a few months.

Sleeping in until noon then -playing- the games its much more satisfying then hunting ever was for me. I'll pay the extra cost for the damn convenience.

The problem with strictly /vr/ reviewers is their library of games is more limited and they've got to choose between reviewing the classics that everyone has played or is at least familiar with and reviewing bottom of the barrel shit. Then it's a bit trickier for them to make the review interesting because it's not like the game is new to you, just their impression of it. Or they can review supposed "hidden jems" that the majority of people haven't heard of. The problem is these usually turn out to be shit, or at best mediocre platformers and the like.
They don't need to go all out with the gimmicks and overproduction, but it'd be nice if the reviews could keep my attention and they were in depth enough that they tell me more than I could figure out in playing for 5 minutes. Especially for old game reviews, it's pretty damn easy for me to download the roms in a few seconds and form my own opinions.

Game sack is good and they do good console reviews. Chrontendo and Generation 16 are awesome channels since I love history and video games so it's a match made in heaven for me.

Luke is the only guy I like. First of all, he is not a complete autist manchild like the Game Sack guys and the like. The older I get the weirder it seems to me how grown men spend so much time and money on children's toys. Just having old plastic shit on a shelf. Hoarders.

So yeah, give Luke some love.

I can agree with some of the negative sentiments posted in this thread, such as their wannabe endearing, but still absolutely wooden delivery in the live-action segments, or how they only say 'music is decent to good' type critique. Even Joe's stupid mouth (his words).

I like these guys for a few reasons though. They showcase games I've never heard of, good and bad. Especially since I barely played any Sega systems growing up, it's nice to see hidden gems on each of their consoles. I've played roughly ~95% (if not more) of the English games on the SNES but they still showcase a few I haven't as well as most Japanese games I haven't played.

They're also useful for having as background noise, as they don't scream shit. Joe's editing is fantastic for the console dissections too. And even though they might not do very thorough examinations on games, or even debate them between eachother, I still enjoy what they bring to the table, and they know that it's an incredibly unrealistic pipe-dream to even fathom making this their respective careers. The end of their FMV video actually had me laughing pretty hard for thirty seconds, to be honest.

Overall, I think their hearts are in the right place (Joe especially) but they should spend more time discussing certain games instead of the 'first impressions are reviews' thing they do for most videos to become more credible; do more live-segments (non-scripted/generally outlined) to seem more human to the casual viewer; do more technical videos, such as the latest one.... and maybe put what games are going to be played in the description. [that last tip is for more views]

I found it to be the exact opposite. I was expecting them to talk about different mods they used on different consoles and how they thought of applying the mods nad how useful they were and instead got an episode that just felt like it was rushed at the last minute to meet their Saturday deadline because they couldn't think of anything to cover that week.

game grumps is better without jontron arin sucks a fat cock too but danny is actually so awesome. He is actually older and knows a little about retro games. Yuriofwind is shit, he's just some little underage faget that talks about pokemon copy pasta. PeteDorr is an autistic faggot and needs to be in vomitshit tier as does alphaomegasin or his own tier for angry chipmunks. Peanutbuttergamer has always been a huge faggot and all he does is stroke his zelda boner the guy is a fucking loser.

Man, so much effort goes into those Video Game Years episodes, its a shame they don't get more viewers. It's a "I Love the 80s" style retrospective starring internet retro reviewers as the talking heads.

I personally vote for Spoony before breakdown to be in good tier. I mean his Phantasmagoria 2 videos were fucking god like.

What caused him to breakdown again exactly? Something about his whale of a GF braking up with him?

Kinaman is fantastic. However the disconnect of the Dendy outside of Russian audiences prevents him from having a larger impact. Essentially doing reviews on a bootleg system doesn't give him much of chance anywhere else.

Only retro (or gaming in general) YouTubers that I really watch are CGR and MetalJesusRocks. I watch Shofu if I'm in a Pokemon mood, but that's not really retro. Watched AVGN for a month or so last year until it started to get samey for me. I just like CGR and MJR because they both just have a love for games and just talk about them in a presentation style that's well produced and not too long for each video. I don't need too much comedy or rants. Seems like people are saying that Game Sack is like that, might check them out! Any others like these?

So, if someone were to go about doing a video game reviewing channel, what would (hypothetically) be the right way to go about doing it?

Because I feel like the whole "angry reviewer" thing is really overdone. Yeah, it worked for AVGN and Jontron. That doesn't mean that it works for everybody. It'd be nice to see more reviewers talk about games that they actually like. And continuing plotlines are just...not necessary. At all.
