What STILL sucks here is that there are not more games WITH random encounters...

I totally missed that Giants was being played today... which is probably for the best, since you don't want to spend the stream with me screaming into the camera that this is one of the most amazing and overlooked games ever. And if you do want that, maybe we should do Rocket Jockey next.

This is the decade that I'm currently stuck thanks to my backlog, which has just gotten a lot bigger thanks to both Steam and GoG sales. I haven't played this particular game, but heard a lot about it. Giants: Citizen Kabuto is like Citizen Kane to some people.

So was gamespot inspired to do this show by gaminformer's replay show?

One of my all time favorite games! There is so much variety and it is so unique, this is one of the games that hooked me on gaming when I was young. Thank you for playing this gamespot, it brings back so many memories!

You mentioned Giants 'not taking itself seriously'.

Another goodie that did that very well was the Time Splitters series. I really wish they'd bring them to PC.

I remember playing this game back in the good days. Gameplay was so unique and too damn fun.

Unfortunately I will not be able to watch this in 20 (now 13) minutes but I want to say that Giants: Citizen Kabuto was probably one of the greatest, most creative games I've ever played!  It was a hilarious hybrid of RTS and 1st person AND 3rd person shooter and almost an rpg in some respects that was WAY ahead of it's time and should be remade with utmost haste!  Also, by-the-by, I feel the same about Dungeon Keeper 2 =D
