Now I want to see a Quick Look Throwback of Night Trap AND Plumbers Don't Wear Ties. I will renew my subscription even if it doesn't expire until some time next year as it is!

Great stuff.

They so need to bring this back. Desperately. Now that Rich has been sadly laid off would he consider coming back? Probably not but I can dream.

It might be cool, but the amount of time it would take would probably cut into other things, like Quicklooks, which I prefer because of it covers more current games. Some more retro quicklooks might help, as that is the meat of Time Trotters.

I thought MK spawned the ESRB?

That and a few other games including Nigh Ttrap, and Doom.

It's interesting that the best bit about this video is Ryan and Jeff playing Night Trap and commenting over it, the rest of it leaves me a little cold. The guys are best when they are just being themselves rather than acting.

The site definitely needs more Time Trotters and/or Quick Look Throwbacks.

My thoughts exactly.

I believe MK was the first infamously mature content game that got mass media and political attention but Night Trap was the one that made the government say "whoh whoh whoh we gotta do something about this" and they organized to figure out what to do about said mature games thus the ESRB was born. Doom didn't come out till 93 and the those other two were 92 but I've no idea which came out first.

It's interesting to see Rich Gallup before he was out of a job, leaving him poor, destitute, and giving blowjobs on the street for enough quarters to play just one more song on a nearby DDR machine

I Like that the penguin is played by Ed Boon

I was never a fan of porn with narratives, but when they go all gonzo on Night Trap, like the Quick Looks, I like it.

Posted by fetchfox

Awesome-awesome-awesome, to say it mildly.

Posted by Ravenlock

Losing this would have been much worse than losing Night Trap itself. Thank you for going back in time to save it.

Posted by Yownage

So, why are these going up now...?

And am I the only one who sees a hint of similarity between future Ryan and Adam Jensen?

Posted by MathewMcGee

More Please!!!!!!!

And there it is. Full circle.

Great episode and a joy to finally see it guys! Fascinating to see all the beginnings of GB happening back on Gamespot since at the time I was blind to them because I had just made the switch to more personality driven US sites after being finally fed up with Euro magazines and their 'second thought' web presences. Therefore back in the day everything was mindblowing to me, the cool Greg Kasavin video reviews, the thrill of watching Jeff, Ryan and rich Gallup on the live shows and I barely ever got to the weirder, evolutioanry shit like point reports, Gregs amazing video from the press party and Time Trotters.

Posted by BaconGames

That was great. I agree that it probably should have died but it's fascinating to see what was the origin to the GB format we enjoy today.

Posted by AlisterCat

VHS!

Posted by Impossibilium

Gamespot owned the TT assets so Jeff and Ryan couldn't take them to GB and GS wouldnt put them up after the exodus. Now GB and GS are reunited TT can live again.

Today is truly a red letter day. Shedding a Time Trotters-related tear over here.

I forgot how awesome these were, who's elbows do I have to lick for more?

This is an historical moment.

Bahahah that vampire scene was hilarious.

This reminds me of Clock Suckers

Ryan killed Senator Joe Libermann?

Posted by Clinkz

The audio is fucked- gets too loud or too quiet at points, but still funny.

Da fuq did i just watch?

Posted by Draxyle

Oh wow, so dumb but so great. I would never want them to go back to it, but I'm still glad these exist.

But.. that's Night Trap? Seriously? That caused controversy? That's not a videogame; that's a bad movie with an aggressive play button.

Posted by GrandMarshal

YEAHHHHHH!!!!!!!!

Posted by andrewf87462

I like how it ends with them leaping into the air lol

Posted by RedRavN

Seriously, if you guys still made this show every week I would totally watch it for my daily dose of dumb. I had no clue about night trap or about the court case that brought about the ESRB.

Time Trotters.

Edited by Blair

Holyshit, I was just watching (last evening) the show from December 2010 when Ryan and Jeff referenced playing a perfect game of Night Trap (for Time Trotters, I think...).

INSANELY FRIGHTENING COINCIDENCE!

Posted by RedFive

This is the best Time Trotters in Time Trotters history
