Short and sweet: 
I'm going to embark on making videos on the best moments of Giant Bomb Quick Looks.... The early quick looks are a little hard for me to remember which ones had great moments or not in them.... 
 
I can name a couple that I already have... but what are some of your best moments early on with regards to Quick Looks: 
 For me: Certain parts of The Wheelman quick looks were amazing... and the entire Noby Noby Boy quick look is amazing. 
 
Add yours to this thread so I can add to my video. :) 
 
Love

Whatever you do, don't forget Wipeout the game.

I'll have to go look the archives and get back to you, but as  @peelermcsweepy also said Crash Time stands out in my mind :-)

Dragon Ball: Evolution for the PSP is just gold, I've never laughed harder at any quick look.

Darkest of days was hilarious. I don't know if that was all that early though.

Isn't it weird looking back at the REALLY old quick looks and seeing that it was just one dude doing the thing on his own?

President Reagan says FUCK YOU! 
 
I'll definitely second the Dragonball Evolution one and add Story Hour Adventures (which they played for ALMOST an hour, going insane about halfway through it), Incredible Crisis throwback Quick Look and...that one on the DS where you're a detective and they use live-action people...I can't remember what it was called, though.

The WWE quick look where the dude gets hit by the car. 
  

  it's at about 24:12

I think the Noby Noby Boy Quick Look was the first completely astounding Quick Look.

I looked at the suggestions here and thought: "Wait, those can't be early Quick Looks..." then I looked at the Videos screen. Oh Christ... 
 
Anyway:  

  
I might have a sadistic streak somewhere, looking at people playing terrible games.

I liked the Mlb 2k10/the show quick looks, jeffs attempt at the million dollar perfect game and his online game against the random guy was insaneley funny, losing the perfect game in the first AB was hilarious.

#19 Edited by Garfield360UK (453 posts) -

There was one for a Wii game based on a TV quizz show but I cant think of the title of the show now! 
 
It was really funny though from what my memory can remember. 
 
Edit: 
I remember now, Wipeout!  Trying to take out the AI player with throwing balls with the Wii mote on screen. Good times.

God damn I love this video. I've watched it probably 3 times now, it just cracks me up.

I've always been partial to the Amped 3 Quick Look.  http://www.giantbomb.com/quick-look-amped-3/17-2076/
  
For many reasons -- it's funny, the game is fucking insanity, and they did a Quick Look for Amped 3 years after it originally was released. Just 'cause they could.

I always wanted them to continue that trend and look at some old games in the QL format. Alas.

Actually I was looking for one the other day- what was that storybook fantasy one that had Jack and the Beanstalk and some other stories? It was a kids game. I couldn't find it for my life for whatever reason. I looked through every page but I honestly couldn't find it.

that was a good one, the laughing was contagious. 
then you felt dumb because the more the Miis got hit more hilarious it became.

Dude seriously. 
 
Also, a lot of the ones mentioned aren't really that old.

@TurboMan: Halo Wars ... "All Units"
 Not sure how early you want but that one is within the first 50 for sure.  Also.  Harry Potter and the Half Blood like a few people have said is definitely hilarious and HAS to be in there.  That one is on page 13 out of 16 so it's also one of the earlier ones considering there are 463 quicklooks now.

@TurboMan: How early is "early"? It's kind of freaky to think about it, but... GiantBomb didn't really do Quick Looks until last year. 
 
@fwylo: And people still complain about the "lack" of content. :P
#37 Edited by Church069 (250 posts) -

I found the "Castlevania Judgment" quick look to be rather amusing.  Also the Burnout Paradise Party mode quick look had some funny bits in it as well.
 
The Killzone 2 quick looks were pretty great too.  I remember they could only use 5 minutes of actual gameplay footage, so they edited in Jeff and Ryan doing a bunch silly stuff while still commenting on the game being played.  Come to think of it, those were probably the first videos I saw on Giant Bomb when I discovered the site.

Noby Noby Boy is a classic, that's for sure. Probably my favorite QL.

But this one is also a beast!

There seems to be very little regard for the word "early".

The term "Quick Look" was first used in their Burnout Bikes QL in September 2008, and there were several more that year. I would definitely consider those "early", or if you want more freedom you could even just go for anything older than a year. Most of the Quick Looks listed here are older than a year.
#45 Posted by Gaff (1649 posts) -
@LordAndrew: As a "new" "lurker" on GiantBomb (damn you, Persona 4), I won't argue that 2008 is definitely early. 
 
Then again, if I start looking at "posted on xx/yy/zz" dates -like the meticulous dick that I am-, video content definitely started ramping up in early 2009 (which yeah, still is more than 1 year old). Am I just an old fogey to think that 1 year isn't OLD?
