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.
Ahhtisbutaaweeleprec 21 dia atrás
@FreedomForever2010 As a chemical engineer, you should know that the naming rights of new elements are given to the discoverer, who chose everything BUT aluminium, not the journalist who thought he knew better.

I remember renting a PS1 from blockbuster to play the "Spot Goes To Hollywood" game.

He had a really cute walking animation and I thought it was the coolest thing ever.

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.

The only game of this type I had ever heard of as a kid was the game that came from Cap'n Crunch cereal called Cap'n Crunch's Crunchling Adventure.

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.

7:55 I think you just hit the issue with these games. When they’re not basically a copy of what’s currently seen as the best game of all time, except cheaper and parents are willing to buy it, the only people playing these are probably already invested in the snack. Meanwhile, anyone can come across those tweets. Also, really disappointed you didn’t mention sneak king.

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). How did you miss out on talking about that?! xD

Part of the reason they don't do this anymore is because making video games has become too expensive. Even to have average graphics these days, you need a lot of polygons and textures, and that's just the physical aspect of the game, not even going into the systems and mechanics that require many programmers.

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've gotta be honest: I am pretty surprised that it didn't end with "you should make video games for your the one we made for our show." And then he proceeds to begin playing a Last Week Tonight video game. That, or actually making video games for those products

Pulling roller coaster tycoon 2 out of a serial box is the highlight of my life. For poor kids like me, having free games in cereal boxes was a godsend

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.

@Technicolor Mischief-Maker Those articles are part of the marketing. The current young generations are easier than ever

@Tangible Raptor tell that to the numerous news articles on how the current younger generations are nigh-impossible to market to

I had Too Cool to Fool on the SNES. It was actually a good game. But since it was a b-day present from her soon-to-be ex-husband, she took it away and mailed it back to him.

It was hilarious to watch the president of the Chex brand say that he (sic) "Only needed a teenager to figure out how to put Chex into a Doom clone." Almost literally ANYONE in the '90s knew how to use a Doom level editor.

I wont like I was one of those kids who BEGGED my mom to buy me some chex so I could play that game haha. I had no clue the history of though. Man seeing that game was a blast from the past!

To be fair, Chex quest was amazing, it's a cult classic. Has a massive mod community today.

Sad I was too poor at that time era to afford a computer, at best I was getting into consoles. But now currently into PC gaming, nice little gaming rig I built. Was soo jealous at that time.. Not anymore, getting bored as of late, own thousands of pc games.

I was looking for this comment. I know ‘Doom’ was a cult classic, I could only image the niche die hearts who are looking for the Chex version

Can we just take a second and acknowledge that Pepsi Man has some of the most slapping solos, snack games or not?

My sister and I played a game that came in a Cap'n Crunch box for HOURS where you had to train a little monster in different skills and have him save the stolen cereal. Does anyone else remember that??

@NaxiusGaming and Carmack was able to rein in Romero’s desire to go too big. It was a good team, especially back in the day.

@Saavik256 What the hell are you smoking? Doom 2016 and Eternal are both fucking amazing
NaxiusGaming Mês atrás
@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.

@Saavik256 Romero? Pft.. 90's iD was all about John Carmack. Everything he does is brilliant and he could literally see the future (ray tracing, VR, even rocketry). Everyone in tech has ridden off his coat tails for decades now.

Interesting how with any other IP, that sort of wording could be interpreted as derisive. But not DOOM. Never DOOM.

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.

Hey John. My friend and I turned you into a video game. I've got no idea how to send it to you but it's a thing that exists now.
I think we are better off as friends...
