the comments are hilarious!

"Hi I'm a monotone game reviewer listen to my suicidal tones, I get let out of the basement by mom once a year will you be my friend......where u dig this guy out a graveyard......way to sell a game" (somehow this person believes reviews are supposed to sell you on a game ...what?)

"If this guy reviews Dark Souls or Skyrim i won't be buying those games!"

these people really have no idea ...that's even funnier than Brad's old haricut :D

Sounds like he just had a sheet of text in front of him that he wrote up the night before, and he was just barrelling through it. The people who complain about Brad's monotone delivery now need to watch this video.

Here is another gem I found on the youtubes. I recommend watching it just to see Matt Rorie. Trust me. It'll be worth it. :)

oh man, so awkward! To be fair, his on camera presence has gotten much, much better. Watching the Skyrim review it's kinda hard hard to believe that's even the same person.

The difference between Brad in 2004 reviewing Outbreak and then his review of the sequel a year later is amazing! He lost the beard but has got some great sideburns.

Matt Rorie is a lot more comfortable in front of the camera now that's for certain. You only have to watch his Screened feature videos to see he as got his presentation style down.

I like Matt. Apparantly he went to some kind of speech therapy and schooling and beat a problem that he was dealt with in the cards.

I especially like to do the Brad is leaving thing when GB is running late with a live show. Put some fire to those feet! Thats logical...somehow.

Oh yeah...Brad, I've already seen a video like it (if not the same one, didn't look) He has learned a lot. They all have.. to some degree, but Brad is definetly a trip, anyways.

Yeah his reviews used to suck monkey balls. Fortunately he is actually pretty good these days, in fact the only guy on the site I find more entertaining than Brad is Vinny.

Wait, I thought Brad couldn't grow a beard? Or at least, I thought I had heard it discussed before. Clearly I am wrong, but still.

It sounds like Brad is on some sort of sedative. Or maybe he's just learned to work with his monotone. I suffer from the same affliction :(

There is an ongoing joke that Brad is leaving Giant Bomb. It is not true.

*Takes jam out of doughnut*

While we make exceptions for videos relating to the site or videogames, there is little discussion to be had based around simply posting old videos of the staff. These guys have been working in the industry for a long-ass-time. If we started flipping tables every time we found an old clip of them doing something awesome... well.... we would quickly run out of tables.

Try to control yourself.
