Yep, I know of a humorous gaming-related webseries. It is called The Angry Video Game Nerd. Basically, it involves a gamer reviewing old games that are deemed to be of low-quality. For example, he did this video on Superman 64. It started with Superman on Commodore 64, which was considered decent, and before that I didn't even know there was a Superman game for Commodore 64 (then again, I don't even own one), and then there was what you were expecting: Superman on Nintendo 64, which is considered one of the worst, if not the worst, video games of all time. But I'm warning you, the majority of what makes this so hilarious comes through commentary littered with profanity and toilet humor, but that's what makes it so good. Yeah, I've learned a lot about old video games from this series. For example, there was this company called Wisdom Tree that made the unauthorized NES games based on the Bible, that commonly involved blatent rip-offs of classics, like Bible Adventures, 3 lousy Bible games crammed onto one cartridge that ripped off Super Mario Bros. 2, and even the ONLY unauthorized Super Nintendo Entertainment System game, Super Noah's Ark 3D, which was actually the same thing as WOLFENSTEIN 3D, only instead of shooting Nazis with pistols, knives, SMG's, and chainguns, you're knocking out goats with a slingshot. You can find this series at either Cinemassacre.com, GameTrailers.Com or ScrewAttack.com, and, of course, YouTube. But for YouTube, the videos are uploaded about one year after their original posts.
