I would like to point out that dying is common in at least some of these games. :(

I love the fact that this is becoming known as "Doing a Brad". The best ones were watching Rich tear into him when he used to do it on 'On the Spot'.
 
Don't take it to heart Brad, I think it's fucking hilarious that you do exactly what 80% of people do when they play for the first time, makes it seem way more real.

This is the best list I've seen, man. Keep up the awesome job, Brad!

Why does it say the list is in chronological order? It's in the order of shortest to longest time until death. 'Chronological' means earliest to latest.

@Besetment: right, so it's the earliest death, to the latest death. You answered your own question, didn't you?

I guess you answered my question about whether or not you knew what chronological meant.

@Besetment: Fine, what would you call the order then?

@Mustard: Time from start to death. It doesn't have a fancy name, but it's not incorrect at least.
You don't even have to mention the order if you really don't want to. Due to the nature of the list, the order is implied.

This is the greatest thing ever. I hope Brad takes it well. Everytime he dies, it's great entertainment. And really, he's just showing what it's like to play a game when you're not a crazy expert at it. It's . . . educational really. Heh.

Great stuff. Just went and watched Brad's death in Red Faction, and even though I knew it was coming it was pretty funny.

Star Wars and Uncharted 2 ought to be switched around on the list. According to your time, Brad died earlier in Star Wars than he did in Uncharted 2's QL.

Funny list. I'm pretty much like Brad as a gamer.  
 
I die all the time ( That's probably why I like easy games like the new Prince of Persia and the Ratchet and Clank series).

We have a new leader. New Super Mario Bros. Wii Quick Look,  49 seconds in, Brad jumps into a goomba and lies about it being someone else's fault.

It should be noted that in terms of actual gameplay, Brad technically died a mere 13 seconds into the first level, on the second Goomba in the game. 
 
It's also worth nothing that he died a second time, only 14 seconds later at 1:03, and a third time (putting him out of the game until the others gave him a 1-UP) at 1:41. Meaning that altogether, Brad died three times in under two minutes.

God of War one? 12:44, Is it possible to set a record of 2 deaths in 2 separate games in one QL?

Avatar image for mustard
Edited By Mustard
@fwylo: technically the Quicklook is for the collection. So we'll just give him the 12:44 time for that. Besides, he manages to stave off death in the second one anyways.

Awesome list lol. This is the reason why Brad is an integral part of the Giantbomb crew. He's like the Kenny to Stan, Kyle and Cartman.

This is a pretty awesome list.  This might be my favorite user created content I've read on this site actually.  Keep it up to date... I'll keep coming back to laugh at it.  Usually when I like somebody I root for them to survive... in Brad's case I root for him to die in the most terrible way... but it is out of love.

For New Super Mario Bros. Wii, the closing parenthesis should probably be directly after "onto" instead of "Goomba".
