I like Jan and all but Vinnie or Jason need to talk to him about how framing works. This is the 2nd video where Ben's head has been cropped off the top of the frame. These game of the year videos deserve more attention to detail than this.

That's the joke. Ben is very tall. It's a good gag.

I know I've seen that ferret before. I'm shocked it doesn't have an entry on the site. I need archives!

It's hilarious and I love it, and if you're listening please continue to crop Ben's head.

Not all the time though, I like Ben.

This was pretty great. Could maybe use some fine tuning but yea. I remember suggesting some kinda Giant Bomb annual tournament some time ago, but I'm sure others have as well.

@ybbaaabby About a decade ago I was discussing Rock-Paper-Scissors rules with a chemistry professor while waiting for something to get cookin', and a quick informal survey seemed to point to the "shoot on 3" method being a west coast thing, with folks east of Rockies tending toward "3 plus shoot."

Such is the nature of this website that I can't tell if you're being serious or leaning into the joke extra hard

That was very enjoyable. "3... 5..." everyone starts cracking up. Good ending, feels like a storyline coming to a close. Also holy shit that money reveal.

I thought Pick A Number would be a really lame way to end an otherwise fun video. Boy how wrong I was, that was perfect.
