Brings a tear to my eye. Reply Erectoplasm says: 2014-07-08 at 8:46 PM You did a fucking great job with this. Really was worth the wait. Reply Rob Welch says: 2014-07-08 at 9:40 PM Thanks. I hope to make more videos, hopefully shorter videos that won’t take like a year to make and get me totally burned out. I make fun of Kyle for being a perfectionist (see: his Dark Souls 2 review, his Dead Space 3 review) but I spent two whole days designing writing an oscilloscope program to display the number graphics. I’m simultaneously proud and ashamed of that. By the way, I believe we’ll still see those reviews.

Reply Rob Welch says: 2014-07-11 at 7:44 PM Cool! Reply uckethea says: 2014-07-10 at 4:26 AM Agreed. Well done Reply Lames says: 2014-07-08 at 9:22 PM I heard you mention this on your podcast at least three times, it didn’t disappoint. On the first person shooter segment though, you seem to have missed that Halo was actually the first FPS ever made. Reply Rob Welch says: 2014-07-08 at 9:36 PM In the first draft it did start with something like ‘As we all know, Halo: Combat Evolved by Bungie is well known for inventing guns, driveable vehicles, and graphics’ but I thought I might get at least 30 seconds in without any facetious jokes. Also, I’m sure some people might have thought I was being serious. Reply goombagore says: 2014-07-09 at 1:24 AM Top class stuff. I wouldn’t have even been mad if you split it into 5 different videos. More people should see this. Reply Anonymous says: 2014-07-09 at 3:46 AM Wow, this is some pretty good stuff. Great voice recording by the way. Reply Venny says: 2014-07-09 at 3:57 AM Very nice job, an enjoyable video, clearly effort was put in polishing this. Reply :B says: 2014-07-09 at 7:49 AM Jesus christ it’s actually a full-length documentary. This was great, you can tell a lot of work went into research and collecting material for the in-between segments. I take back everything I said about anything dismissive you ever said about Carmack. Reply Wiwiweb says: 2014-07-09 at 11:38 AM That was really good and interesting, both on the content and the presentation. I really don’t have anything bad to say about it. Reply Moby Duck says: 2014-07-09 at 2:52 PM Oh Sinclair, it’s been a while. Reply Dana says: 2014-07-09 at 10:34 PM I’m actually a little disappointed you didn’t bring up Project: Firestart (C64) during the Survival Horror segment, as that game *really* brought together the elements of a Survival Horror, albeit in a 2D setting. Reply Jay F says: 2014-07-10 at 2:13 AM I coulda swore I heard that diatribe on Looking Glass Studios’ Ultima Underworld before…maybe even here? Reply Anonymous says: 2014-07-10 at 7:51 AM Nice, enjoyed jacking off to this vid hot ass thick sweaty body A++ love it @ 5:04 she can suck a mean dick, fuck so hard Reply Kyle Johnson says: 2014-07-10 at 9:47 AM u wot m8 Reply Johanz says: 2014-07-10 at 8:48 AM Excellent video! This is what GYP should be all about! Well, not all of GYP but this is the stuff that seperates GYP from other gaming sites. Good features about video games that have some meaning and some research put into them. Also, some “Look Around You” humour in there, right? Or am I just imagining things? Anyway, good stuff, very well produced, edited and fun to watch! Reply Rob Welch says: 2014-07-11 at 12:15 AM Thanks. And yes, I have incorporated quoting Look Around You into the very fibre of my being, I no longer need to think about it, I am always referencing it. Same deal with Red Dwarf. Reply Ant says: 2014-07-11 at 5:42 AM I am only 21 minutes done and enjoying it! Please do more. :) Reply Kyle Lawrence says: 2014-07-12 at 1:27 PM This was great Rob. You should do more like this. Reply Rob Welch says: 2014-07-12 at 5:20 PM http://www.gatheryourparty.com/tag/5-things/ Stay tuned for the next one in summer 2016! Reply Spencer says: 2014-07-16 at 1:55 AM Probably one of the best videos out there documenting the actual origins of video games. Excellent work! Reply Anonymous says: 2014-08-21 at 6:27 PM I enjoyed the fuck out of that. Reply Cancel reply You can use basic HTML in your post.
