Why not do some games that haven't been reviewed yet. Games like SMB have been reviewed at least 100 times, I'd imagine, so I haven't seen this one yet.

The honest answer? 1) there actually aren't that many reviews and most of them suck. 2) I thought something like this will result in more views.

Next game is actually growing on me. I hated the beginning.

A video game celebrity talked to me on twitter today. Maybe I'll even get a shoutout.

LOL I wish. It was the voice for jack in mass effect, ada wong, and the woman survivor in fallout 4.

I like watching reviews of games that I like, because it reminds me of why I like it. I'm looking forward to the Zelda reviews and the Donkey Kong Country reviews. I'm also interested in the Chrono Trigger review because I played it for the first time a few months ago (it's not a favorite, but I liked it).

Other reviews are less interesting to me, probably because I haven't done much gaming recently, and also I'm not really into newer games. But that's just me, and probably not representative of the average gamer.

Quest for Glory 1 is simply one of the best RPGs I've ever played. I initially planned to alternate between that game and the next game in the list, but I might play the series in its entirety in a row instead.

Also not only did I reach a minor subscriber milestone of finally going from 270 to 280 subscribers (seriously took over a month), but I now have over 1000 views. Hopefully it's the first of many milestones.

Even my older videos are reaching common youtube searching algorithms, so having this become popular enough for monetization is actually feasible. The next step is to reach the home page of certain recommendations, but I have no idea how to do that.

I just tried playing it for a few minutes and man is it addictive! I had a friend when I was a kid that played King's Quest, which seems pretty similar to this game, and enjoyed it then. I might just keep this one around for whenever I can find some downtime. Fun stuff!

I actually keep mixing up King's Quest with Quest for Glory. Both are made by Sierra, and both are made by married couples.

I will play the King's Quest series eventually, but I'll wait until they're on sale on GOG.

My brother got to level 40 on Wow Classic the other day and got his mount which makes me super jealous. I hit 35 today, but he’s been helping me with some quests and doing dungeons together so that’s helped a bit. I like this game much more than I did years ago. I logged onto my old account and saw that I’d played a little in 2015, but hadn’t really played since 2010. I love playing hunter, and all its little quirks. It’s really fun strategizing and grinding and exploring the world, I found it a little repetitive the first time but loving the grind now. We both want to go Druid for our next character, I think he wants to go dps and I’m considering tank or healer — but I normally play solo so healer might be difficult. Also made a panderen monk on retail Wow to see what that’s like, I do miss all the achievements and holiday stuff but it all feels too easy (and being able to buy max level characters is so boring).
