Better to stick with MAME or SCUMM or whatever free emulators on the PC are out these days.

THIS is what I expected Gameroom to be.
Just that they are arcade games in SOME form rather than really old console games is what I have dreamed of for months.

Poor Jeff, I guess nostalgia ain't what it used to be.  
I remember skies of Arcadia and Alien Front Online being pretty kick ass for the Dreamcast.

Who would have thought? Microsoft actually released a few actual arcade games on Game Room. This is what I want. This is what I need.

y'know, I don't hate Sonic Adventure 1 and 2, even though I guess I should.  I mean, they're not great... or even good in most places, but for some reason I can still enjoy it on some level.
 
But for $10, no thanks. *sheesh*

Awesome week for Game Room.  Both of those games look playable and entertaining.  Color me amazed.
 
Also, I love Sonic Adventure, despite Ryan's burning hatred.

Why Jeff didn't just download the demo for Sonic Adventure, I do not understand. Such an awful game.

Its more what Sonic Adventure started in a long line of horrible Sonic games. I don't just mean the horrible gameplay, but the shitty writing, characters and overall 'WOAH DUDE WE'RE TOTALLY AWESOME' tone.
 
I mean, why in the blue fuck are there humans in my Sonic game? I... Sega... fuck you
 
Bring back Sonic The Comic. They actually made Sonic an interesting character. I know, crazy right?

Thank gods this video was listed in the Sonic article, couldn't have remembered it otherwise. I remember being pleasantly surprised the first time I saw this QL. Of course, even back then Sonic looked terribad. Or well, actiony parts are kinda-sorta-ok, but that adventuring...sweet jeebus, so bad. Together with the whole "he's in our world now". Bunch of BS...and that music, AAARGH!!1

This is an old, old comment, so I don't know if replying to it will be of any worth whatsoever. With that said, I think there was a pretty early Spec Ops: The Line multiplayer beta or something. I remember trying to get in with no success, but I knew someone who was in and didn't have great things to say about it. I wonder if the feedback on that thing was negative enough to push the game back for improvements... not that the final product was received as a super well-playing game anyway.

I'm here before the 10 year anniversary of this video because I am watching all the Game Room Quick Looks because I've walked less than 1 mile in 3 weeks because of the pandemic help I don't wanna go outside there was a tornado warning at 12:30am tonight.

That cat is saying "Yoshi" when picking up a key I swear it.

I can't believe Sonic Adventure came to Microsoft Game Room in 2010.

Oh the things we forget.
