    I just subscribed to Happy Video Game Nerd and I have to say his optimistic views are similar to my own and he doesn't just review the obviously great games but he dips into some with not the best reviews and shows why they can be really fun to play now. I highly recommend his channel

    Gamester81 makes some great videos, and Joe Gagne's Funtime Arcade is pretty cool if you're into wrestling games.

    Default Gaming and Drinks

    Hey everybody. Tired of the same old "Let's play" video's out there, I decided to start recording my own concept for a show where I review the experience of drinking a drink while playing a retro game. Here's a link to a two-player review of Ikari Warriors while drinking Whiskey on the rocks: https://youtu.be/1SftDfFXp9c . There's also a review of Rum and Coke/ Lifeforce on my channel as well. I know the audio/video quality is terrible, but why invest in a better quality until I get feedback on the idea? Note these are totally unscripted, but storyboarding and improvements are planned. I just want to get an idea if people like or hate the concept. Feel free to like/dislike or comment how you feel. I'm completely open to suggestions. Go ahead and bash me, but please tell me why. It's all for fun, and like I said: SOMETHING DIFFERENT. There's plenty of videos to watch if you want real reviews.

    He's in his 40s, actually. I believe he's 41 now.

    I'm familiar with metal jesus, he does have some good vids and seems like a cool down-to-earth dude, despite his overthehill grunge rocker appearance. His console reviews are great but alot of his content lean towards "my recent pickups". He at least shows some game footage but seems to know nothing about the games. Still good stuff nonetheless, although his buddy "Idrinkbeeroncamtolookcool" should definitely get less camera time.
    I couldn't agree more about Drunken Master Paul. I really wish that he had less of a presence in Metal Jesus Rocks' show.

    VectrexRoli is pretty good for Vectrex and some other more obscure retro platforms: https://www.youtube.com/user/VectrexRoli

    Found a great one this morning. Cygnus Destroyer.

    https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCPH...vUvYAenuEwhULA

    He does three different shows. One is a straight up review series, the second is called The LJN Defender and is exactly what it says on the tin and the third is called Innocent Until Proven Guilty and is all about giving so-called "bad games" a fair trial to find out if they really are bad games or if it's just the internet being stupid. Cool stuff.

    EDIT: Whoops. I failed to notice he'd already been mentioned. Oh well.

    I'm OK with him. I prefer the likes of HappyConsoleGamer and Retroliberty but MJR is alright by me. What about him do you feel "tries waaaay too hard" ? Please don't tell me it's all the female co-hosts he has on, . Joking... kinda.

    Little Miss Gamer. Her videos are older, from like 7 years ago and she's stopped posting now but they're very well done. Nobody cares about her either. I also think Pat Contri is hilarious.

    Default A couple other ones

    Here's a couple other channels.

    Leftover Culture - Pretty good reviews of some sega games and stuff.
    16 Bit Gems - Great review but not that many new reviews these days, good podcast though
    Kimble Justice - More Sega reviews, sort has stopped reviewing them lately, some good stuff though




    Not what you're asking for but pretty entertaining

    Console Wars

    I remember Little Miss Gamer from way back when, I liked them at the time. Haven't watched any of her old videos in ages though.

    Good clean, informative, and professional videos that are entertaining to watch. Any other recommendations similar to the channels I mentioned would be much appreciated.
    +10000000000000000000 for this question. I also wanted to know same thing.

    Pretty sure he means "I don't like MJR's buddy", referring to Drunken Master Paul. Not "I don't like MJR, buddy".
