What's your favorite retro vidya youtube channels /vr/?

There are not enough good ones that cover classic PC gaming in my opinion.

Lazy game reviews comes to mind. Great voice, reviews lots of old PC games and hardware.

I found out about him from /vr/ and I think he's great, very easy to listen to.

His commentaries are entirely in Spanish, but he clears numerous arcade games in one credit in their default settings (at least their MAME defaults), including some really tough ones.

I don't like many Youtubers but I have found a few good channels
Game Sack
MetalJesusRocks - he used to work at Sierra back in the day and features a lot of PC games
Real Game Hunter - He used to post around /vr/, good flea market hunting channel
Of course CGR is good too most people know of Mark already though

Modern Youtubers are not retro. They're just failed comedians and people too uncreative to make original content. so they just talk over game footage and expect money for that.

They're disgusting scumbags. Every single one of the.

If this thread makes it to 500 posts, there will not be a single one that discusses video games, I guarantee it.

e-celeb threads invite promoational posts. It invites gossip threads about Youtubers and their pathetic lives.

He is good, but his jokes are always kind of the same, and yes, all of his top games are cringeworthy

I like RetroGameTech. Really nice, knowledgeable Scottish guy who buys broken consoles and fixes them, mods consoles and collects games. I think he's an electrical engineer- certainly knows what he's doing with consoles.

Doesn't update that much anymore but I always look forward to them when they come.

Sit back and have a nice rake through some of his handheld consoles. Ahhh.

The only thing PUR is guilty of is getting a bit too personal sometimes. She is a fairly knowledgeable PC gamer and her videos are well put together.
The face skits are, perhaps, a consequence of her previous participation in TGWTG. Her early stuff was pure gameplay.

"This game has ok graphics and the music is decent. The controls consists of jumping and attacking."

I like that they showcase so many cool games, but their style of reviewing is so goddamn shallow. It's like listening to an 8-year old describing their summer vacation.

Is that supposed to be the translated episodes?
What happened to the quality? I randomly checked two that I hadn't seen before, and they seem google-translate quality compared to the pretty good Dendy Chronicles ones.

Yes, those are all the translated episodes so far. The subs for the recent videos is really shit except Kinamania Special which has subs par with the first videos, Kinaman knows them, but until the subs get replaced, he left those shitty subs because it is better than nothing and the kind of people who would rather watch without subs than to read those subs could just turn them off instead.
