I could see John Oliver as the sassy narrator for an indie platformer. "Ooh you missed that jump. Don't worry, there's a million more like it on the next level."

Creed Bratton (from The Office) was the narrator for a game about the Sour Patch Kids called 'World Gone Sour' and the dialogue just about as batshit insane as you'd imagine, coming from a guy like him. XDXD

I miss John. He was my Sunday night inherent relief In this poorly written sci-fi alternate universe that social media created. Where most Americans know absolutely nothing abt the rest of the world. My blind guinea pig, Gustaf is smarter than the humans I talked to this week! 1 broad didn't know we are on our 6th mass extinction of the planet, 1 dude didn't know wtf apartheid was even when I said South Africa. My friend when we were talking abt extinction & didn't know wtf phytoplankton was! This was 1 week! Ohhh I forgot abt the idiots on That racing around the world show that didn't know who Boris Johnson was or what countries were in the European Union. Then I read an article abt 2 lesbians that couldn't get their cats off a box they had to open. So they contacted the company to ask for 3 empty boxes!!!! Ohhh Thank you so much "Bored Panda" for putting that in my Google feed! I have owned a dog grooming shop for 25 years & I rehilbiate wild animals. You are the head of the house, not the cat! I inherently would kill the proverbial dumbass who invented the word "Fur baby" they are domesticated animals, not babies w/ fur & all of mine are handicapped so don't yell @ me abt not liking animals in fact I am starting to consider myself an Misanthrope! Why is it that in other countries is the only time I have intelligent conversations? Switzerland I will be there in 6 days & abt 13 hrs. ONLY my 2nd country since covid hit, I am surprised I haven't gone mad by now.🤪🤪 Like the military? That is dumb. Dude, is your birthday being called for the draft?!! If so, go to Canada. We are not Isreal, you probably don't know but girl or boy has to join The army @ age 18. We don't. Edit.. millennials & under who are known for their ENTITLEMENT, NARCISSISM & that SMUG look "they" always have on their "I am inherently given everything in life" face...should be sterilized for the safety of this planet.

@Ahhtisbutaaweeleprec I'm a bit lost on what you are trying to say. To an extent a discoverer should be given precedence in naming, but if we rely on that here, then the original name given was "alumium," which as you can see follows the proper convention and ends in -ium. Of the three names the discoverer gave to it, only the second was aluminum, while the final name he gave was aluminium. I don't see how in light of that history and the standard your proposed we should end up with the -um suffix.

The game will be called "Last Week Tonight: Tomorrow's Hero" and it will have John Oliver gaining access to news from the future and using it to bring about changes in the present day. It will be like a mix of Quantic Dream and Telltale type games, with action scenes like in Platinum games, including a couple of Grasshopper Manufacture style retro mini games between major segments.

I honestly can not believe you guys choose not to put in the Cap'n crunch cereal video game. You train a small fluffy humanoid creature, (that literally lives off Cap'n crunch cereal), to race on a skateboard against a turtle, in shoes, running backwards. Throw rocks at other rocks that are being ejected from volcanoes, and finally jump on circuit board platforms. All of that just being the training to then challenge the cave goblin looking guys, in a effort to stop them from stealing the world's supply of "crunchium" (apparently the thing that makes Cap'n crunch sweet).

Wanna know what happened to snack brand Video Games? Fast Food discovered the trick and ruined it for everyone. On that note: any chance of doing a follow-up video to this one which is almost entirely talking about Sneak King?

I waited so much for John Oliver to mention PepsiMan. How could you miss to talk of snack video games without PepsiMan? I jumped with excitement I almost got worried that he wouldn't of mention PepsiMan. I would of gotten reverse diabetes if he didn't mention PepsiMan! The makers of this show really research their s**t. It shows how good their show is a sign of quality to even talk about one of the most obscure games in the Playstation 1! Seriously, PepsiMan was actually one of the best videogames ever created. It was way ahead of its timeline. I loved that f** game as a kid. It was actually really f** challenging to beat it. Its sad to say but one of my biggest accomplishments was beating the last stage where a huge giant Pepsi was rolling down the hill on a street and you had to dodge everything on the path down to not get crush by a huge a** Pepsi can. S**t took me three whole months. Three whole months? Yes! If your Pepsi lives where at 0 and you died it was back to square one B***h. That game was exciting as f**ck, every stage threw you something different. At one point, you end up in a fk sewer for all sakes! A sewer!!!!

When I was a teenager, I bought a used game called 'Darkened Skye" thinking it looked like a cool, fantasy adventure. When I got it home and read the game guide I nearly fell on my ass laughing because the whole game was about Skittles.

I think I watched a YouTube documentry from the creater of that. She was talking about how her Skittles contact people didn't care about the game and just wanted some shovelware BS, but she saw it as an opportunity to make a real game so actually made some badass game that just happened to use skittles as currency, or ammunition, or something.

Getting a game in a cereal box as a child was awesome... However, it incentivizes children and parents to buy cereal based on games instead of nutricional value. In Chile actually cereal mascots are not allowed anymore for the same reason.

Let's be honest: the value of this video comes largely from the fact that, despite being "a huge nerd," JO rarely talks about or even mentions video games, anime, or the like. Everything in this video has been covered by a dozen channels already. (I might recommend OutsideXbox/OutsideXtra-- I know they have at least a few videos on branded games.)

I remember playing the Cap’n Crunch computer game as a kid. Basically you were raising a “crunch berry“ and there were three mini games where you would skateboard, throw rocks at… meteors(?) or play a game where you’re jumping up onto platforms and trying to reach the top. All of those games were training, and when your crunch berry grew up, you would have to fight this monster thing (I forgot what it was called) and after you beat him, I think you could just continue playing the mini games if you wanted. I played that game so many times!

@Mike Lowe I would argue iD was at it's best when both were involved. Carmack brought the tech. Man was, and is, a technical genius. iD wouldn't have succeeded without his insane know-how. But when you think of DOOM, the game that made iD rich, Romero gave the game it's heart and soul. Little of the concept was Carmack's. But what this showed was the magic that happens when two great minds come together. Because while I could argue that both have found success outside of iD, neither have achieved the same level of greatness since. The two really complemented each other. Too bad it didn't last.

There was this snack videogame in Italy featuring the main snacks made by Kinder-Ferrero (the company behind Nutella). It was a platform where you could play as either a Penguin (mascot of one of the snacks) or a snack. And by that, I mean an anthropomorphic snack. One of the things one remembers most is how, when you switch character, the one you're using calls out the other's name like it's an anime attack. The name is called Fresh Adventures. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CLyEA8lWfVw&ab_channel=Venom1603 here is an example of that
