I watched the full Life is Strange and XCOM video features and really enjoyed it.
Any other recommended "Watch Giant Bomb playing this full game" series?
I don’t watch most of them as they’re so damned long. I’d love to see some best of features for this content...
Metal Gear Scanlon is pretty great (MGSV is NOT a great game to watch, though).
Shenmue was good.
I’m SLOWLY skipping around Beast in the East as there are some great Yakuza Zero moments worth watching.
I’d love to see them do the Silent Hill or Resident Evil series.
Thanks, everybody for the great suggestions! I'm especially interested in seeing games I don't have time to play on my own or have no interest in the gameplay so having some recommendations really helps narrow things down and point me to "hidden" stuff! Really hoping to see them doing Nier or even Wolfenstein II one of these days.
Persona 4 and the VJ run of Deadly Premonition. Both of those have Best OF playlists on youtube(Persona 4 has two) if you're short on time.
Similarly, I recommend the Best Ofs Mario Party Party. Like if you have 10 free afternoons, by all means watch the whole thing and wallow in their suffering. But if not, there's some great compilation videos.
The Deadly Premonition Endurance Run is still peak Giantbomb if you ask me, also, you're missing out if you don't watch both runs. The playthrough of Contradiction is up there as well. Also good are the Bioforge playthrough and the playthroughs of both Phantasmagoria games.
A bit different from the other playthroughs, but Vinny playing through old games is some of the best content on the site. All the Vinnyvanias are fantastic (except SotN), as are the two Contra This Is the Runs.
Blue Bombin is good, if you take sadistic pleasure in Alex dying repeatedly to disappearing blocks and floor spikes (which I do). Vinny also played through the last half-ish of Dark Souls in Load Our Last Souls, although honestly, it’s not my favorite. Other suggestions in this thread are totally solid.
The Persona 4 Endurance Run is my favourite thing Giant Bomb has ever put out. It is ridiculously long though. There's quite a lot of episodes where they're dungeon grinding later on though, you should almost treat those as podcast episodes and have them on in the background while you play something else.
