I ask this because at a rate of 2 games a week for Encyclopedia Bombastica it will take a hell lot of time to give some preview for every game ever made. So assuming that Jeff still does this 30 years from now would you still watch it?

I clicked 'yes' but the truth is 'no'.

If I'm alive and suddenly thought of these fancy videos then, probably!

No. And neither would any of the people that said yes.

30 years is a long ass time.

No, because by then the future mob will send me back to the past so my past self can kill me with a shotgun.

I hope for Jeff's sake that he does something else by that time. I love his stuff but nothing holds up for that long.

Are you asking if I would still watch his existing videos or if I would still watch him making new videos?

30 years from now Jeff will be watching my videos! Quite turn of events, isn't it?

In 30 years, won't Jeff be more than 60 years old?

I don't know if the chances are too good that we'll see Jeff finally finishing up his Encyclopedia Bombastica drive in 2042. Maybe he'll pass the task down onto a new guy, and the cycle will continue anew.

By then we'll all be old bastards complaining about how things were better in the good ol' days.

Jesus, I'll be 47. I can't even imagine what I'll be doing but if Jeff is pumping out videos like a crazy old man in his house still, I'll switch them! Funny thing is, he'll probably discuss how great games were today.

Well I watch videos of games that are 30 years old now so I guess so.

It really depends on how the internet evolves

Wait, I don't get it. Is Jeff trying to preview every game ever made? I never understood the specific purpose behind the series.

Depends on how Jeff grows old, how I grow old, and how the site changes, I guess. Though the idea behind Encyclopedia Bombastica is that the other guys will eventually join him in some way.

I won't 'watch' the videos, but I will happily plug the nano-conduits into my nipple jacks and have the Jeff video experience hormono-loaded into me by glandular transduction. As long as I have enough bone marrow credits left in my Paypal, that is.

I'd like to think that in 30 years, we'd have some awesome new way of 'watching' videos and had also figured out a way to convert all our older stuff.

There are so many questions to be asked about this question.

Like, I watch them today, so why wouldn't I? He's already making videos about games from three decades ago. WHY ARE YOU ASKING THIS?

Sure, probably. I'm sure someone turned in to Larry King Live for the 20 odd years that he was on.

If the future holds significant technological advances and Jeff's brain is downloaded into a Virtual Intelligence construct... I will watch the shit out of those videos.

He's got 30+ years of games that came out before 2008. And is moving very slowly through them. At the current rate it might take 30 years to finish QLing just the Mega Drive (which he seems to be focusing on).

I'd like to see... Hell, any of the other staff pick up the slack a bit. Giant Bomb seems like a 24 hour state of existence for Jeff, it seems more like a 6 hour punch-clock job for some other staff.

I believe Ryan and/or Jeff is planning on doing a premium video of playing a ton of those games.

Would I? I plan to do exactly this! Precisely 30 years from now, in 2042, I will open the special 'Jeff Gerstmann' folder on my computer deck and I will watch the handsome young whipper snapper before me tell how things used to be back in the day.

After seeing my dad, who is almost exactly 30 years older than me, be mad nostalgic about stuff from when he was my age and earlier; I'm going to say yes. I truly believe he will be livestreaming 24 hours a day by then anyway.

Does the 30 year estimate include the growing number of games that will continue to come out?

Realistically, no. Most people who are choosing yes are likely lying, even if they don't know it yet. Thirty years is a long time.
