Alright people, I have decided that I should tackle the Persona 4 Endurance Run properly for once. I never watched it when it came out because I was an inactive user but now I'm here I think I'm going to watch it. I'm up to episode 26 at the moment. So. To those of you that have watched it, was it worth the whole 150+ episodes?

Considering I've seen all the episodes atleast three times, yes it was, still my favorite thing Giantbomb has ever done, too bad we wont have anything like it ever again
 
Some episodes I just turn on when I need a laugh or want to have some noise in the background while I do something else

#4 Posted by NonDragonfly (21 posts) -

It is very funny. I'm watching it for the second time and I am on episode 109

Yes, by the gods, yes.

Seems like it's THE thing to watch haha! And don't worry Venatio, they have another one in the works they said at PAX.

It is easily one of the greatest things to ever grace the internet. To not watch it is a shame. To not watch it is to commit a crime against humanity. ARE YOU A CRIMINAL AGAINST HUMANITY!? THE UN WOULDN'T LIKE THAT!

I hate to sound like a broken record, but it's the best thing Giant Bomb ever did.

I wanna caveat my post a bit. I can never experience what it's like to watch it now for the first time. My experience was while the ER was going. That involved all the threads about it, the discussions, the kinda blowing up of Giant Bomb, the rise of many popular users like Buzz_clik and Turbo_Toaster (who designed some of the Whiskey Media t-shirts and all of those quest icons on the right of your screen respectively) who had involvement in the site regarding the ER, etc. It was a great time.

Having said that, I still think you'll like it.

I actually watched all off the episodes for the first time this year also, since I as you, was not that much off an active user when it was new. And having just finished watching the whole ER, I must say it was worth it.

#14 Posted by SlightConfuse (3963 posts) -

yes one of the best things on the site

#15 Posted by SethPhotopoulos (5262 posts) -

The only time to stop watching them is if your tired of them.  AND YOU'LL NEVER BE TIRED OF THEM!

#16 Posted by eroticfishcake (7786 posts) -

I'm in the same boat as Venatio. I've watched it a lot, partially because it's one my favourite games (as my profile skin will tell you) and the commentary is hilarious. I do have to point out, there's a lot of grinding episodes in there that don't require you to look at them all the time so you could always have it running in the background whilst you're playing Minecraft or whatever. That aside, if you've the time I don't see any reason you shouldn't watch it.

#17 Posted by Dagbiker (6976 posts) -

I have probably watched it 5 times over, and, yes it was worth it. That was a simpler time when Jeff was less Jaded, even though he was already pretty jaded. and Vinny, well he hasn't changed to much. but by the last third you could tell they started getting tired of the dungeons.

It's the best thing to ever come out of Giant Bomb, so yes.

#19 Posted by SirOptimusPrime (2009 posts) -

I'm watching it for the third time while doing homework this year (disastrous decision, so far) and playing SC2 for the commentary and so far its just as enjoyable as that fateful day discovering it. For christ's sake, I bought the game new (something I NEVER do, unless for an online code etc) after watching all 150+ episodes and have played through the game three times. The game is worth it, the commentary is hilarious, and well...it'll make you buy Persona 4. 
 
Yes, yes, yes.

Mysterious Fox was unavailable for comment, but sources close to me suggest that riddle solving and potential drug use are in order.

Best thing about watching either ER now, is that you don't have to wait a day or a weekend for the next episode.

True, but there was also something great about going in the Persona 4 forums and anticipating what Jeff and Vinny were going to do on the next episode.

As someone who watched it long after it happened (I only came to GB around the end of the deadly premonition ER, which I still havent watched all of). Its great, it really is. I would never have, and probably never will play persona 4 or any persona game. But watching that I feel I have gotten everything I could have from that game had I played it myself.  
 
Honestly I guessed the killer quite early, and was quite smug with myself when I turned out to be right. And I hate children, all of them... except for Nanako.

THE BEST

#27 Posted by Vexxan (4620 posts) -

It is still the best thing they have ever produced.

#28 Posted by ajamafalous (11994 posts) -

As others have said, it's the best thing that has ever been on the site.

All of this.

I loved it, but skipped most of the shadow-world-only episodes. The social aspect is clearly the most fun to watch(even though it got a bit grindy towards the end)

#31 Posted by Gamer_152 (14078 posts) -

Absolutely. One of the best things Giant Bomb has ever done and there hasn't been anything quite like it since.

I think you should all watch Shaolin Grandma. Funky Student is the bad guy.
 
I am not ashamed to admit that I've watched the P4 Endurance Run twice over and I still laugh at jokes that I know are coming. I enjoy the sultry tones of Vinny and Jeff when I'm working on art projects.
