The lights are on
Here at Game Informer, there's no shortage of big Simpsons fans. Obscure references from twenty years ago are still heard on a weekly basis here, and we doubt it'll be any different in another twenty. As gamers, we all would have liked to see some decent gaming experiences come out of the legendary franchise, but they've been few and far between. With awful titles like Simpsons Skateboarding, Simpsons Wrestling, and Bart vs. the Space Mutants, it hasn't been always been a pleasant ride for Homer and company. Despite this, we've had a few decent entries: The Simpsons Arcade Game, The Simpsons Hit & Run, the game based on the movie, and this week's episode of Replay.
Watch below to see Tim Turi, Andrew Reiner, everyone's favorite PR manager Aram Jabbari, and myself strap on our VR goggles and head back to Springfield.

Great episode of Replay and great to have Aram guest appearing on the videos all week. I have never beaten Virtual Bart, but do have fond memories of Power Instinct.
And Dan, you really need to watch Futurama, you will laugh your butt off.
I think Aram is a new intern.
talk about nostalgia
Thought the reevesplay was coming out today, or is that another video?
I own the two Simpsons games worth owning: Hit & Run and the Arcade Game.
Every Replay with Aram on it is especially good, we love him.
I have the Seaquest game on SNES, it's pretty bad.
Pig Time Adventures? I played that the other day. Went HAM. ba-dum-tsshhh
The Dark Knight Plays Bad Video Games: Starring Aram Jabbari as Bane and an old Grandma who turns into Anne Hathaway as Catwoman.
Did I see Chelle in the roulette? Haha. Good job, guys.
Granny = Chell? o.O lol
Aram is one of the best guest they bring on to the show. Hope to see him on more Replays.
The publisher that cares! (tm) Ha, I love Aram on GI videos. Amusing Replay, even though I wouldn't play either of those games.
Two Aram's in one week, a boat load of Test Chambers, and a Reevesplay? Can life get better? I submit that it cannot!
Full Throttle was the best!
Eff you Dan!!! It's not nerdy to watch Dragon Ball Z!!!! You're a nerd for never watching Futurama! But forreal... all the episodes are on Netflix and I'd say it's right up there with Arrested Development and Chappelle's Show in terms of hilarity. Watch it!
I completely forgot about Virtual Bart! I used to play that all the time at my friend's house. Or rather, it was too hard for me so I watched him play it.
I was waiting for a Futurama reference :D (Matt Goening created both The Simpsons and Futurama)
Dan, you definitely need to watch Futurama, you would enjoy it.
