I love that John Oliver is basically just reading one of his mid-30s writers random thoughts about how cool 1990s ad-based video games were

That’s probably true. But at the same time, John himself was a nerdy teenager in the 90’s, so it’s not unthinkable that he played some of these games as well (or at least were aware of them).

Cheesy marketing tie-in aside, Cool Spot was actually a really solid platformer. Good graphics, responsive controls, fair but challenging difficulty curve, nice soundtrack. It also managed to incorporate the whole soda gimmick into the level environments in interesting ways. I had a lot of fun playing that game back in the day.

Came looking to see if others remembered this game. I spent many happy hours playing it and even got a geeky boyfriend to find it for me again in the late 90s. That train level with the balloons sucked hours of my life away but I don't regret a minute of it.

The *only* cereal my Dad ever let me have was wheat Chex, so when we got the Chex Quest CD-rom it was just an extra little prize. I didn’t have a computer at Dad’s house, so I took it to Mom’s, and oh boy!! I had so much fun playing that game. My stepdad’s mom didn’t like it because she thought it was violent(?) and I had to assure her that it wasn’t, nobody dies, nobody gets injured. In Chex Quest, the bad guys just get teleported home.

You thought Chex was disappointing, Kix is (was?) worst. Cause not only did it have no flavor, it wasn't even nutritional. So you get the worst of both sides.

They're just impatient and don't want to deal with the mistakes of a newbie.

We can also talk about how Dole partnered with Sega to bring us the Super Monkey Ball series, which has over 20 games in it, the most recent of which was released LAST YEAR. (though Dole no longer has a part of it, it's still insane the a goddamned banana company helped to bring us this big of a game franchise). I'll also point out that the previously mentioned Chex Quest has THREE games. The most recent of which was released in 2008! Thought Chex Quest 3 was unofficial... UNTIL 2019 baby! General Mills officially re-released all of the previous Chex Quest games in 2019, including the previously unofficial Chex Quest 3.

I still remember the cereal boxes that hooked me on a brand for ten years by giving away copies of the previous wave of PC games - early 2000s, and they gave away Age of Empires (the original one) and Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2. it was how I first found Age of Empires and how I first learned Tony Hawk existed at all, and I still have those two original game discs kicking around somewhere.

Man, i still remember the gamnes that came inside cereals. I had a whole collection of them as a kid. All nice and organized. Or even the toys hidden inside. Even though the cereal boxes where kinda just lootboxes, it was still awsome. "Oh shit, im only two away to have the whole set." But then mom be like: "You only get a new box if the old one is empty." "Gotta eat my cereal every day, get up early so i have time to eat it befor school. Im gonna get ALL that stuff in the cereal boxes." Im sad thinking that my nephew never gonna experience that.

Honestly a smash brothers style fighting game with all the classic mascots would probably sell.

Back in the day there used to be a Cap’n Crunch computer game, it was something along the lines of raising a digital pet a la Tamagotchi but you can battle like Pokémon or Digimon.

There's something especially endearing about John using memes, because he does it in this self-aware, uncondescending way. He clearly has young people on his writing team that he 100% respects as much as their older counterparts.

@Dee Ess Nah, not an action/shooter game hero, for John Oliver? Side-scrolling point-and-click adventure game ala Sierra & Lucasarts - think of John as a geeky 'non-hero' like Roger Wilco of Space Quest, or Larry Laffer of Leisure Suit Larry...more writing than graphics (easier since they HAVE writers already) and more opportunity for jokes (which really IS the strength of everyone over there)

What exactly would a John Oliver game be? He couldn't be a superhero, no one would ever believe that. I guess you could put John in like a paint ball shooting gallery where he is the target and you win by covering the target. You could choose avatars of people that he's pissed off over the years on his show as the shooters. Or have him do his show and every time he swears you have to put soap in his mouth....Ivory brand, of course. Other ideas?

You didn't mention the single greatest snack video game: Darkened Skye, a 3D, Zelda-esque adventure game. The story of the game is that tyrannical goblins have banned all color from their kingdom, and it's up to Skye, an elf from the forest of Lynlora, to bring color back to the world using the power of magical Skittles.
