Since we are beginning the next generation with Wii U and the current generation is showing its age, I got the urge to visit some old Gamespot videos when new consoles started coming out. I remember watching the all day quick look of Wii when it first came out but never knew if the same was done with the 360 back in the day.
I ended up watching episodes of On the Spot around the launch of the Xbox and the PS3/Wii. It's super fun to go back and see what we were exited to play all the way back in 2006. THAT'S SUCH A LONG TIME AGO.
I uploaded a "Quick Look" of Gears of War that the Giant Bomb guys did back in the Gamespot days. It's interesting to see how the quick look format began before Giant Bomb was a thing. It really is the perfect way to show off a game. Also they talk about how Brad always dies in games. I guess that's a long standing tradition.
This clip is from the November 2, 2006 episode of On The Spot. I would recommend going back and watching a few of these videos around the launch of new consoles. Exciting times.
