Game Informer (and friend of the site, Dan Ryckert) played ToeJam & Earl: Panic on Funkotron with RiFF RAFF and I feel like the video kind of speaks for itself. After playing for a bit, he designs his own game "The Adventures of JODY HiGHROLLER."

In short:

  • RiFF RAFF thinks Nintendo is shit.
  • He hates realistic games, especially violent games like Grand Theft Auto.
  • New controllers have too many buttons.
  • The best games were 1988-1997.

That was fantastic. That game sounds like a mess, but an endearing one.

Real celebrities. Can't tell me we can't get Riff Raff Quick Look or something now.

Being pretty isolated player games when I was younger, I was really surprised to see people love the first game and hate the second, mostly. I really liked the sequel.

GWAR and Andrew WK had the passion when they visited GI, but Riff Raff has the vision.

I always crack up at the people that spit venom at this guy. The dude is so ridiculous on another level that I don't see how someone can seriously hate him

As the legend of Jody Highroller grows, the fact I was able to get a picture with him in Summer 2012 slowly becomes my greatest achievement in life. I'm not the least bit sad about that.

No, but I have swiped Jeff's summary of Riff Raff from earlier this year and used it many times - basically, it's really hard to hate a guy that looks like he's having that much fun.

Never would've guessed that Riff Raff isn't for violent video games.

I think this video confirms it, yes.

That they had him play Panic On Funkotron instead of the first game is absolutely the cherry on the cake.

Toejam & Earl 2 is an atrocity, but it doesen't stop me from loving this video to death.

I'd love to see Riff Raff's game get made, but who would publish it? If only there were some sort of company that was dedicated to making and publishing dumb games... If only there were a game company run by some sort of deranged yet somehow charming madman...

If only...
