It's funny how uninterested he sounds in what he's saying.

I didn't watch the video, but by reading the comments I can guess what it's like.
 
 
I recommend the Shadow of the Colossus review. Maybe Metroid Prime 2: Echoes as well - it seems to stick out in my mind for some reason.
 
 
Also, Ryan's review of Tony Hawk's Pro Skater (either 2 or 3 - whichever one came out on the PS2 as well) for the PS1. That's also a good one.

He is so stiff in those old reviews. Compared to that his stuff on GB is lightyears of improvement. I never followed Gamespot so I don't really know if that was a gradual change or something with the way they were running things over there.

This is weird. I feel uncomfortable.  =P
 
 
I am glad that Giant Bomb's video format encourages them to be more energetic, and it seems Brad has opened up over the years! I would have been the exact same way starting out.

Had to hold myself back from screaming... xD
But yeah, there's another video somewhere that shows both Ryan and Jeff on a couch with their hair bleached. No idea where you would get such a terrible idea but thankfully they seem to have realised their mistake.

Holy fucking shit. The hair. The lack of beard. The... almost whisper quality of the vocals. Damn the boys have come a long way.

Wow Ryan sounded like some sort of creepy stalker in that review. And Brad sounded like he was about to fall asleep in that Outbreak review.

That's it, I'm calling it. Brad's the only person allowed to grow a beard.

I had no idea Ryan had the ability to not sound like a condescending dick. The harsh adult world has done good to make men out of these boys. Oh, and these videos are hal-arious.

Wow! Brad is no longer that weedy little nerdy guy anymore.
He's really come into his own and is nowadays kind of a cool nerdy guy. Good on you Brad.
 
But damn this's the funniest shit I've ever seen. Reminds of those awkward moments from your past that your parents tell your friends or girlfriend about, while you stand there going red in the face and telling them to "shut up". Lol.
Brad really should comment on this, it'd be hilarious! ;-p
 
 
And Ryans review that was linked on this topic. His voice scares me and he looked like a pedo. *giggle*.  Now I've laughed, I want to never look at it again. *shudder*

That first one could easily be swapped with the iPhone app parody and no one would know the difference.

Wow, Brad really looks like a stereotyped guy who writes about video games in that first video. 
 
Also, why the hell did the mix in the game volume so loud. I know Brad isn't the most energetic voice around, but the game is drowning hime out
