The lights are on
We've been getting a lot of requests in the comment sections of Replay, and many of you mentioned that you'd like to see some NES titles. We figure most gamers have a pretty clear memory of the obvious choices (Mario, Zelda, Punch-Out) thanks to re-releases, emulators, and the Virtual Console, so we landed on Scrooge McDuck's treasure-hunting adventures. It was well-received when it was released and many gamers have feelings of nostalgia for it, but how does the gameplay hold up two decades later? Check out the new episode below and just try to get the cartoon's theme out of your head.

OMG! You guys are hilarious! This completely made my day. Thanks for being awesome :D
Ah yeah. Four games. Now THAT's a Replay. Even though two of them weren't great, Mad Max looks like you could figure it out and it wouldn't be so bad.
By the way, I would love to see some of the original Sonic games (in recognition of Sonic the Hedgehog 4!) or, if we're going newer games, Viewtiful Joe was a good one or the original Metal Gear Solid games would be cool. Keep up the awesome work guys!
i said i'd go back and play it, i did, and it still holds up as a classic,i liked it then and now,yea the music is like crack.
loving these Replays! as for suggestions, i'm sure guys have gotten some for Battle Toads. that would be fun to do
Just found these last night when I couldnt get to sleep and I love 'em. Its my favorite parts of AVGN (looking at old games) with none of the (everything else about AVGN).
Check out Inspector Gadget on SNES sometime. Its one of my favorite "hidden treasures" on the system and it wasnt like a game I found on a list a friend of mine had it when I was younger and she let me borrow it to teach her how to play and it was so much fun. No one ever seems to talk about it so I cant help but think there might be some nostalgia factor in it for me though ;)
Road Warrior was so bad that it was funny
Holly crap...1989!?! I used to love this game!!!
Ducktales! ooWOO O!
and you guys replay some SNES games too. there were a bunch of those that rocked!
The Mad Max segment was a riot, good show again fellers.
another fantastic episode guys. amazing feature. also, tim turi is hilarious!
I was crying from laughter from the mad max one.
After watching ten minutes of this I went and hooked up my NES for some alone times with Ducktales.
My god, it was more fun watching you guys play. I really miss being young and able to adapt to a games pace.
oh man, the Mad Max replay is PRICELESS.
you should do a replay on nascar rumble
i have funny memmories of my parents shouting at me 4 that!
They went ballistic everytime!
Is it just me, or do the bad guys in Yo! Noid look like Andy Capp?
I'm pretty sure somebody made the ducktales theme of LBP
