    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

    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".

    Ohh, yup, on second look, you're probably right. And to which, re: MJR's buddy, I simply have no comment, lol...

    I also like Classic Game Room. I'm glad CGR came back to YouTube.

    I used to like Mark but he has gotten stale. He seems more interested in shilling his CGR junk, and begging for money, than anything else. It's funny how they built their entire empire on fucking donations and they still need to beg. Now he's just getting greedy. It would be nice if he did a collab with another youtuber, like the others do.

    Oh yeah, there is an upcoming videogame convention in Oaks, PA called TooManyGames on June 26-28. These guys are supposed to be there:

    James and Mike
    Pat and Ian
    Gamesack
    Gamechasers
    AlphaOmegaSin

    Not a bad idea. Not bad at all. Which other youtubers did you have in mind?

    I like Ian, he's the complete opposite of phony Pat. He says what's on his mind, doesn't give a shit what people think, and stays humble.

    I really like Dangerboy's channel. Big focus on Playstation, though I have seen some for other consoles. Very informative and he covers a huge amount of games. I'm always seeing things on there that I had no idea even existed. Good stuff.

    [QUOTE=homerhomer;2020386]Kimble Justice - More Sega reviews, sort has stopped reviewing them lately, some good stuff though

    Kimble is great, he makes quality videos, and is a straight down to earth dude. Probably my favorite Brit youtuber, him and Caddicarus have that shit on lockdown...

    This thread is sloppy. I intend on going thru and posting everybody's recommendations/links in the OP, because there are some great channels mentioned. I'm just a bit lazy... Just look at how I tried to quote "homerhomer" there at the top. Sigh....
