Hi! Over the past three years (God...) I've been collecting the best bits of random Giant Bomb Quick Looks/Videos and making little compilations of them and putting them up on Youtube. I remember initially doing them as a way of introducing new members to the site what the best content was without having them being forced to watch countless hours of videos.

Over time, some of the videos broadened out past Giant Bomb and introduced a lot of outsiders to the site (I remember receiving a lot of comments/PMs saying that the videos led them to the site and/or led them to buying premium content). I'm super happy that this stuff managed to happen because I was effective in making my little highschool mixtape of what I thought was cool and I was able to share it with a bunch of people.

Ok, Where am I going with this? I've done a horrible job over the past year or so of keeping up with it and properly cataloging stuff when I should have. So this thread is a way to properly do it. Along with that, there's also a handful of users on youtube that have done similar things that should be grouped in with my shlock (actually the Persona highlights were made before I started doing stuff). So here we go!

Mike Kob's Giant Bomb videos are fucking amazing.

TheBurlapLemur's Bitesized Bomb videos is super ambitious. Watch them if the "Quick Looks" aren't quick enough.

Personal To-Do List for Me:

  • I need to add more people to the Other Videos section. If there's anyone out there who I skipped over, please yell at me.
  • Make more videos! I'm currently looking at making a video a week since I've got time now. If you have a favorite highlight, please yell at me on here or on my Twitter account.

From 8:30-onwards in that GTA video, is that from a trailer (that's of course been edited), or a custom made GTA IV video?

It's from this trailer:

I think it was the european trailer, but I remember it being super badass in the way it was shot. Plus it featured LCD Soundsystem (one of my favorite bands) "Get Innocuous"

Seriously dude, you are a champ. Sometimes I feel like doing this, and then realise, there is sooooo much GB content in the last few years. You're doing an awesome job (... even if you miss some great moments like PAC-MAN, PAC-MAN ;))

Hopefully I'll be able to make another one next week for the XBONE livestream, and also I'll probably get one up out of just sports games quick looks from this year.

hope you guys like it!

Thanks, duder. Have appreciated these since day one. When someone asks me what Giant Bomb is, I just throw on one of these videos and let the guys speak for themselves.

Huge love for everyone putting together these compilations and preserving/ making some of the best content easily accessible over the years. I've been devoting time into doing the same with content from Game Informer (because clearly Giant Bomb has that area covered) and it's encouraging and awesome to see.

Another update, put all of the Dark Souls videos on here so far.

Always loved your compilations. They really put into perspective just how many truly hilarious things have happened in these videos over the years.

Great work, been going through some of them recently. Does anyone remember what video it was Jeff did (something along the lines of)

"Ever want to see what the bottom of an avatar's foot looks like" and then he does something like "your worst nightmare"

I've been trying to find it, it was definitely a Kinect video (obviously) though.

Yea, I just did a binge of these over the weekend. So glad you decided to continue them. Really wish I had more time to watch Load Our Last Souls though, cause your highlight of it had me dying of laughter.

Added the last few to the list and I'm starting to make a list archiving every game on these things... I might do 17 again soon... or not...

Next week will be another comp of quick looks, and then after that I might dig through the archive of premium stuff.

Updated with the past few new videos.

Also, I made a video saying this, but might as well repeat it here:

If you feel like helping me out, whenever you come across a video on Giant Bomb with a funny moment, please leave a comment on the video and include me by typing "@TurboMan" and give me a time stamp. It really helps me.
