description

"Classic Game Room" was the first classic video game review show on the Internet in 1999 and 2000. It returns as a feature-length comedy film about the triumphant story of online success, failure, obscurity, resurrection and success again!

The legendary show was produced in the early days of online video by Mark Bussler and David Crosson at an Internet startup with one camera, a green screen and $50 budgets. The show was objective, entertaining and obnoxious with beer-drinking, bottle-throwing, joystick-slinging, car-crashing classic game reviews. A cult following developed and the reviews kept coming, but how long could it last until the money ran out?

Features the original raucous reviews of Duck Hunt for NES, Alien for Atari 2600, X-Men for Sega Genesis, Sega GT for Dreamcast, Joust and Missile Command for Playstation, Frogger for Atari 2600, SeaMan for Dreamcast, Perfect Dark for Nintendo 64 and Yars' Revenge for Atari 2600.

Funny and informative mockumentary. The Game Room LIVES ON... on YouTube.
The Game Room was the very first video game review show on the internet. It was informative and funny, and there was such a great chemistry between the two hosts, Mark Bussler and Dave Crosson. They reviewed brand new games, as well as great classics. The Game Room covered everything from the Atari 2600 to the Sega Dreamcast.

I was one of the original fans of the show way back in 1999, and it was a total delight to find out that a DVD was being released.

The DVD is really great. It’s 11 full reviews nestled in a mock-documentary. There's also a director's commentary track, but I think Mark got drunk for that one, which makes it all the better. If there's one thing The Game Room was all about, it was games. If there were two things, it was games and BEER.

Even today, there are not many shows quite like The Game Room. The current fad is 12-year-old children being angry at old Nintendo games. The one exception to this is a UK show Reviewmageddon on XLEAGUE.TV, a show that has stated it was heavily influenced by Mark and Dave’s format.

Although The Game Room was canceled in 2000 due to the infamous dotcom burst, that is not where the story ends. Mark Bussler has revived the show under the label of Classic Game Room HD on YouTube, and has successfully completed over 150 brand new episodes with no signs of slowing down. After watching the DVD, definitely go check that out!

It’s a awesome movie, as long as you have enough common sense not to take it seriously!
