Hey, I haven't been premium in awhile but I'm gonna do the 30 trial and check out some of the stuff they've done in the last few years.

I heard rumblings about Tender Loving Care and since my favorite stuff were the shorter length story heavy stuff like Life is Strange, Contradiction, and Phantasmagoria, I'll be sure to check that out.

I was also big on stuff like Demo Derby, trip down memory-lane from the PS2 era is my sweet-spot for old games content.

13 Deadly Sims sounded really cool so I'll def see that one.

Anyways, what's been your favorite premium content from the last few years?

13 Deadly Sims was excellent, as was Crime Crew even if you don't like GTAV, not sure if it's premium or not but the Pro Skater streams are very enjoyable if you have nostalgia for those games.

I only just got premium in May although I've watched a bit of the back catalogue (Tender Loving Care was certainly something). Crime Crew was probably my favorite premium stuff this year. I also enjoyed the Command and Conquer Red Alert playdate a lot.

1. Beast in the East

2. Crime Crew

3. Mass Alex

If this was it’s own series it would be in the top 3 but you still need to check out some of the UPFs from this year for ‘Business Dave’s Top 10 Lists.’

I really love Jeff Gerstmann’s Pro Skater. I wish it was on a regular schedule. Demo Derby and Game Tapes are always good as well. On the East Coast, my picks are Die Another Friday and Mass Alex.

Demo Derby, Game Tapes, Beast in the East, Shenmue Endurance Run, Tender Loving Care, Business Dave's Top 10 Lists, All Systems Goku (can't remember if this was premium or not).

These are the ones I remember from the top of my head and pretty much the only ones I would consider worth of getting a premium subscription.

It's definitely 13 Deadly Sims for me. GBE stuff is usually on at an annoying time in the morning, but I made sure to wake up to watch them.

Beast in the East and Mass Alex. Which is apparently a popular answer.

Gotta Godhand was a lot of fun, as well as Grapes and Wrath. Jason and Ben have a surprisingly good dynamic.

Vinnyvania and Vinnystania. And I don't remember if This is the Run for Contra: Hard Corps was premium, but that's my favorite series they've done. Maybe ever?

Everything GBeast does, especially Mass Alex (but Mass Effect is my favorite game series of all time, I can't wait for ME3) and Crime Crew. I mostly fell off of the west-content, I just don't think the chemestry is there even though I epecially like Jan and his humor.

I really enjoyed Exquisite Corps. I hope they do another for War of The Chosen some day.

I am aware they were a bit colder on XCOM 2 than the original, but WOTC turns a bunch of dials up to 11 and your team is eventually a gang of superheroes who can do some truly absurd bullshit, i.e. a turn where one soldier single-handedly obliterates a dozen aliens while running across the entire map. This is on top of the DLC* with the big fuck off robots you can build.

It's a lot of cool guy stuff Dan would appreciate.

*The Alien Hunters DLC is pretty rough, though. Some people seem to love it, but I personally find the Rulers more frustrating and unfair than anything.

Crime Crew, Clue Crew/Nancy Drew, and 13 Deadly Sims. Playdate is my favourite show overall, but I think it's 3+ years now. I really like Jeff's coverage of older games as well, in their various show forms.

Game Tapes is great... unless your favourite game is Full Auto.

Definitely Demo Derby. The weird ephemera of 90s gaming is my favorite part of the hobby, and DD was amazing for that. Shame they never got into PC Gamer discs and such (assuming the feature is dead), although I understand why given what a pain in the ass it is to get all that stuff up and running on modern hardware, and that it appeals to an even smaller niche than the console discs did. But yeah, my dream feature if viewership and tech complications weren't an issue is GBW digging through old shareware compilations and/or those bootleg Doom/Duke/etc. level packs. There's comedy gold in them thar hills.

Wow, a three year range? Okay.

  • Demo Derby even though that has been going on forever.
  • Game Tapes I think that has been more inline with that last 5 years
  • Mass Alex 1 & 2 have bene huge highlights
  • Shenmue was fun too, aged terribly but that can be fun to watch being played.
  • Nancy Drew and Residents Evil with Abbey.
  • Exquisite Corps was good, but a bit too much Dan shenanigans.

I wish they would do Demo Derby more often with Jeff, Jason and Jan Ochoa. That would be something Ben could run the Tricaster on - good experience for switching feeds for Ben. And, an addition to Demo Derby would be to build a retro Win 95 or DOS 7 machine that could load PC Gamer Discs! PC Gamer demos were a awesome and would highlight some 90s gaming. If needed, they could likely get Will Smith to help build a retro machine, it is always good to see Will.

Steal My Sunshine (goat series honestly)
Shenmue Endurance Run
Demo Derby

I would have put Garfield with Gerstmann but turns out that's free, which is crazy.

Burgle my Bananas is definitely up there.

Steal My Sunshine

Playdates on GBE - seem to just pick games i'm more interested it. (RE2 was good fun)

6 crazy frights

13 deadly sims

Honestly in the last 3 years GBW hasn't done anything I've found entertaining which is disappointing as Jeff & Brad are the soul of the company.

Do you think this corresponds with the crew changeup? This may be an unpopular opinion, but I think GBE has made much better hiring decisions than GBW in the last few years...
