So I actually didn't even know until later that there was anything to the game other than building the trap.

    Awesome Metal Gear vid. The little I played of it as a kid I remembered all those flaws. I'm wondering if I should really try giving this a run on the DC sometime.

    I finally caught up to Jaguar Part 2, and the best moments were his idea of a Jaguar game involving power lines and weirdness, and the comments about the Jaguar CD looking like a toilet. Not to mention Death Kitty.

    Just like with the 7800 and Jaguar, I anticipate there being a lot of butthurt Odyssey fanboys trying to defend their system and cite every way in which James Rolfe was incorrect. We'll see.

    the odyssey is difficult to enjoy as a game system in this day and age, but it is extremely fascinating from an academic viewpoint

    To me this is his worst one.

    Wait till next week when he makes fun of the people living in the 1800s for not having cars.

    I think that shit thing was incredibly dumb and irritating. Over all the video was pretty mediocre.

    I didn't hate it as much as the Batman one with the annoying Joker last year, but the Turd thing was really fucking stupid. And I wish he would've shown the gun in its actual in-game application instead of the joke where it blew a hole in the TV.

    This one was just okay. Not his best one, but not his worst one.

    I liked it! Not as good as the MGS, but not too shabby. The content, and information wasn't the greatest, but it was a whole lot of fun.

    The turd gimmick was a bit much imo, but not enough to ruin the video. I didn't know anything about the Odyssey, so I feel better informed. Video game consoles sure have come a long way.

    The turd was incredibly distracting... and disturbing. But it was a nice history lesson about the system... I used to think Atari was primitive.

    Great ending though.

    The difference between the Odyssey and the 2600 is that people who actually owned the 2600 in the first place actually have good memories of it, whereas people who bought the Oddyssey immediately regretted it.

    Yeah, the Odyssey2 would have been a better option to review, because really, who owns these anymore?

    The turd was just there because he needed a second player for the video. Whenever he does something that needs to be two player, he throws in some character. Like when he wanted to talk about the two player mode in Battletoads.
    Anyway, Good video. Interesting to see such an old dinosaur and all the crap that went along with it.
