There are a lot of old games that I'd love to see Quick Look Throwbacks of.  I kind of wish that they could do them on a more regular basis.

.. why such random games? They usually do a throwback to tie into something. Well, apart from Incredible Crisis.
 
And why the N64 Superman? We all know its bad, just watching Jeff or someone trying to play it would be boring.

PC, or N64 version?
 
Why did they make an N64 version of Daikatana?

Give some attention to the sleeper hit MediEvil for the PSOne (1998) for a Quick Look Throwback.

 A classic game done right

Nobody, and I mean nobody, should ever play The Simpsons Wrestling game. Even as a massive Simpsons fan, I will say that game is an abomination. Not even funny, just shitty.

HOLY SHIT YES!!!! Its a childhood favorite game of mine

I so hope they read this, CDI sounds like a great idea, also I don't think watching Jeff play Superman 64 would be boring, and it would tie in to the Superman movie

@BeachThunder:  The answer to that question is simple.
 
John Romero's lustrous hair had taken root in his brain and controlled him like a vile puppet master.

@Hailinel: That would actually be an interesting premise for a game :o
 
It could be Dyekatana...like hair dye...uh...no...nevermind :(
#17 Posted by zityz (2360 posts) -

The only real answer to a throwback is Grim Fandango.

@slightconfuse:
There ok, but they are nowhere near as funny as it woud be if Jeff, Ryan, Vinny, Brad played these games
#19 Posted by smitty86 (695 posts) -
@slightconfuse: Thank you for this. I am now watching four men play WWF No Mercy at 1:30 in the morning. Again, thank you.

No wonder he cut it off.

Didn't Ryan at some point get a copy of "Michigan: Report from Hell"? I would absolutely love to watch the guys try to play this.

While the Giant Bomb guys don't seem too thrilled about the Nintendo 64, I would love to see them fight their way through Blast Corps if that was possible. Seeing commentary on a bitch of a level like Diamond Sands has some great potential. And that fucking dumptruck, Backlash.

Super Smash Bros Melee. 
 
Fucking LOVED that game.

Id love them to do an endurance run of grim fandango.

#30 Posted by Cerberus3Dog (399 posts) -

This thread just made me think that QLTs could totally become the new Broken Pixels. Except without Seanbaby which would suck. I would personally like to see last generation games turned into Throwbacks; Geist, Killer7, Beyond Good & Evil, Eternal Darkness, etc.

#31 Posted by Sarumarine (2303 posts) -
@Cerberus3Dog: Killer7 would be awesome. That was a weird game in every aspect of it, but I liked it. The ending was especially fun if you didn't think too hard about it. That one blind Smith reloaded with his feet. Heh.
#32 Edited by SoldierG654342 (1821 posts) -

Why is it that most people seem to only want the GiantBomb crew to do Throwbacks of bad games?  I would much rather see them play quirky, obsucre, or just plain good games from the past than beat the dead horse that is Superman 64, the CDi, or Daikatana some more. 
 
That being said, I would love to hear the guy's thoughts on some of the older survival horror games, like Resident Evil 1-3, Silent Hill, and maybe a Clocktower or two. And of course, anything that spreads the gospel of System Shock 2 to the masses is okay by me.

the tex murphy games or like day of the tentacle

#38 Posted by Halberdierv2 (1877 posts) -

Maybe the X-Men legends games. they were pretty good, even if you weren't an X-Men fan.

#39 Posted by FluxWaveZ (19388 posts) -

Endurance Run Throwback: Incredible Crisis. That or a Quick Look Throwback of Seaman.

#40 Posted by Video_Game_King (36272 posts) -

How did I not post in this before? There are tons of games I'd like them to do old school Quick Looks of, but I'll limit it to the obscure stuff and just recommend any Cho Aniki game, simply because their reactions would be hilarious/horrifying.
