The 5 Stages of Game Room Grief

Posted by PerryVandell (2190 posts) -

Hey guys, 
 
So about a week ago I got the awful, awful idea of watching every single Game Room Quick Look again, and making a video out of it. A good 15 hours of watching videos and editing later, I have compiled this abomination or what I like to call "The 5 Stages of Game Room Grief". Enjoy.

Mega-awesome.
This might just be the best thing to come out for GameRoom to date!
 
...well, Pitfall 2 is up there too.

Nothing Stops the Game Room Quicklook

#12 Posted by jvdgoot (65 posts) -

I was going on a binge of the Game Room quick looks as well. Looks like I no longer need to do that

This is magical. Great job!

And the worst part is, it's so true.

#15 Posted by PerryVandell (2190 posts) -

Thanks guys, glad you all enjoyed it!

Absolutely great compilation: This year's Game Room saga has really been an Endurance Run of it's own making.

#18 Posted by GeekDown (1173 posts) -

Awesome job, kind of amazing that you put that much time in just to give us 5 minutes of entertainment. I applaud you, sir! 
And I would have never thought there has been 30 game room quick looks.

Yes.
#20 Posted by Wildfire570 (758 posts) -

You mean to tell me that they spent over 10 hours in game room? Jeez that sounds kinda awful.

#21 Posted by drewbert (7287 posts) -

Yep, that's pretty much Game Room. Nice work!

I was going to do a best of game room quick look and decided it wasn't worth it... 
 
I'm glad you sat through it and made something out of it.

At first I thought they kept doing the Game Room QL because they loved the games so much. But, now I see it's because they are forced to. Therefore... NOTHING STOPS THE GAME ROOM QUICK LOOKS!!!!!

#24 Posted by ChrisTaran (1749 posts) -

That right there is something special.

#25 Posted by Irishranger (294 posts) -

This is freakin' hilarious.  Funniest thing I've seen all week.  Don't feel bad, I've watched all of the GR QL's too...just not in one sitting...yeah, you win...or...lose.  Good work though.

Great vid, only problem....it has reminded me of how extremely funny the game room quick looks are. I now have to make time to watch EVERY SINGLE game room video again from the start up until now.

Great work. I wish that the video had been done in chronological order, but other than that, awesome.

#29 Posted by Marconi88 (106 posts) -

Great job on the video.

#30 Edited by AlwaysBeClothing (1578 posts) -

This is great, would watch again
 
True testament to gameroom, remembering it the way it was meant to be!
 
Edit:  If its any consolation, I've watch every single Game room quicklook.

There's a myth that when someone enters the Game Room,THEY NEVER COME BACK!!!!!!
#33 Posted by MarkWahlberg (4708 posts) -

I have never watched a single Game Room QL. I now feel fully justified in this.

#34 Posted by Rodiard (447 posts) -

Nicely done.

Dont worry guys, Sunset Riders is coming. He will save Game Room. 
 
For a day

#38 Posted by devotfeige (118 posts) -

The only part missing is my favorite Game Room moment: -controller mapping shows a single digit assigned to every button- "...WHY WOULD YOU DO THIS!?"

#39 Posted by washablemarkers (95 posts) -

I guess this means I've watched over ten hours of Game Room Quick Looks. I feel like I need to take a shower or something.

#40 Posted by Deathpooky (1487 posts) -

A great expression of the decline into terribleness.  The only thing missing is some quotes from videos/bombcasts about the hope and promise for Game Room to fully express the drain on us all it has been.

@Fullmetal216:

Good job!
#42 Posted by Poki3 (555 posts) -

Great job, though you should have added a "Amount of money Jeff payed for the games in these Quick Looks" fact :P
 
Also, how many times was the Game Room Quick Looks stopped? I think I missed that.

#43 Posted by ZmillA (2339 posts) -

very nice

#44 Posted by Sarumarine (2453 posts) -

Totally amazing! I think the only criticism I have is that you didn't use the time when Jeff yelled "WHY WOULD YOU DO THIS?" for the anger stage when he looked at the controls for A Game of Concentration and flipped out. But yeah, great work! Just amazing.

#45 Posted by CornBREDX (6330 posts) -

That was an awesome compilation, and very funny. 
 
"What if we die? "NOTHING STOPS THE GAME ROOM QUICK LOOK!" haha
 
Oh... I love Giantbomb. Always get a smile when you come round here =)

#46 Posted by bryGPO (20 posts) -

I laughed so hard at this. Thank you so much.

#47 Posted by enterthewumpus (52 posts) -

Excellent work!

Nice effort man! Atari 2200/2400 games really suck!  Even at the time they were released they were already bad. Imagine nowadays! 

#49 Posted by wsowen02 (341 posts) -

Awesome
