When Jeff throws controllers down you know that's a sign of quality. He's like dropping it in shocked awe and amazement... that it's so good, honest!

That "thing" of the end was just . . . incredible. How can THAT be sold? How?
Did you guys read the full game history for the Body Slam? It's ridiculous.

Only the Konami games seem mildly good...
But it probably just looks like that cause the other ones are complete garbage.
Relative good is still shit in Game Room
Oh and Bad Old Games. BOG. It totally works!

I really laughed when Jeff said "If the marketing team thought this was going to compare to early Atari releases they were fucking high". But seriously this has gotten just depressing, just when you think Game Room can't get any worse it does.

Jeff must always be with someone when doing these. It is dangerous, he might try to harm himself.

That Intellivision game looks like a mash-up of other Intellivision games (D&D, Football, etc) Glad I never got that for my birthday back then. 
Oh yeah... POW!!

Just so sad. Wasted potential, as usual. 
So you know, guys, I love your content, and these game room videos are always great, but if you REALLY dont want to do them anymore- I would understand. Its now getting depressing.

I enjoy these videos for some reason, no matter how bad the games are.  But it costs like $12 to make one of these videos doesn't it?  4 games at $3 each?  I like the videos but if game room is supposed to reach 1000 games, maybe Jeff needs to think hard about whether or not it's worth it.  If it's $3 per game, and  there are to be 1000 of them, that's $3000 out of Jeff's wallet.

I like the Hall and Oates reference but it's kind of grim how in 1:30, Jeff managed to reach a top 40 position in that Konami GT game. There really is just no one giving a fuck about Game Room besides Giantbomb.

Whene ver Jeff decides to stop doing this, I want to know how much money this cost him. Lame Room is right.

I feel Jeff's pain through my computer speakers listening to him play these "games."  He sounds like a broken man, and I can't blame him.  He is spending hundreds of dollars of Game Room and suffering more and more each week, all in the name of entertaining us.  You are a true hero, Jeff Gerstmann.  Thank you.

Jeff, you could do the demo versions of each game (for free!) if you absolutely insist on doing these quick looks.  
But other than that, stop buying these games man. I bought two games & I feel like that was a rip off already. C'mon. Be reasonable. You could use that money to buy stupid WWE pay per views!

So I'm the only one who actually likes these game room videos?
I always watch them after work, I find it actually really relaxing. Probably the simplicity of it all.
It does piss me off that Microsoft actually wants you to pay for a piece of shit like 'Sharpshooter' though.

I get it. Just call this the next Endurance Run already. GIVE THIS SOME MEANING.   
Isn't repeating an action over and over again while consistently expecting a different result the definition of insanity?

I am starting to think I am a disturbed individual for enjoying these so much.  I am just so glad that someone out there is actually buying these so others may be saved from their atrocity.  You are doing a service for good Jeff, even though it may not seem like it.

These Game Room Quick Looks are a monument to how bad of an idea Game Room was, and how awesome of an idea Quick Looks are.

When designing that game, did no one at intellevision say "Hey, what does this giant joystick on the Atari do?" Atari games were not push button at random intervals games.

Wow dude, that wrestling game has more depth than the NES version of Pro Wrestling I loved so much as a kid. 
Choosing your attacks? (and not just choosing a different wrestler) 
Bouncing off the ropes at the top of the ring? 
Moving at an angle while bouncing off the ropes? (not that it's particularly useful or ever actually done)
