The lights are on
A lot has happened to the action genre over the past decade, but there's no better way to appreciate the advancements of running and gunning than looking back at games from past generations. Syphon Filter is an action/ stealth hybrid that released on PlayStation a year after Metal Gear Solid hit the console. It came to glory when stealth games were booming, but its focus on intense firefights and objective-based missions separated it from the pack. So, how has it aged?
Come along with Replay regulars Andrew Reiner, Dan Ryckert, Phil Kollar, and I as we pop in the original Syphon Filter, a game which spurred on a series of PlayStation, PlayStation 2, and PSP games. And trust me, we get through the entire episode without making any "don't taze me, bro!" jokes. At least, I think we do...

it keeps pausing at 30 seconds for me.
As always, the perfect way to start the morning and the weekend. I look forward to next week's edition!
This is my cup of coffee for this weekend.
Syphon Filter games for PSP are the ones I mostly played.
Poor Dan, I can't remember an episode of Replay where your gaming skills weren't called into question! Lol
You guys should Replay Super Smash Bros. for the N64 or GameCube. That would be hilarious.
i love ow u play two games i know of but know nothing about
How does dan have a job there after realizing how bad he is at games.
hahahhaha one of the funnier replays, poor dan. Also make sure to read the tags XD
Oh Syphon Filter, how I hated your lack of help during missions.
Great Replay, and y'all should totally do a Replay or Super Replay of Ape Escape.
i knew if i believed hard enough you'd do a replay of this
Awesome replay guys play super smash bros melee the 4 of u kicking the crap outta each other would be great
I'm almost positive "gibbing" has the hard "g" sound.
Although, if you want to make it fun, you could pronounce it like "giblets".
Also, how much would Dan pay for video game playing lessons?
didnt it seem like alot of the games back in the day were inverted?i think thats what got me started on it.great replay guys.you should do milons secret castle and let dan watch you guys get OWNED that game is soo hard i dare you.
Nice replay. How about Tomba or Croc? I grew up with those games, would be cool to revisit them.
Why is everyone so mean to Dan? Poor guy.
Awesome replay! Dan, go to gamer school.
Goof Troop? Please?
I just downloaded this game on PSN last week, and I'm loving it so far. Hopefully Sony's working on a PS3 sequel, it'd be a definite buy for me. Also, for your next replay you guys should do Parasite Eve, Jet Moto, or the original Warhawk. All great classic games.
Hey guys there's this thing called a map. It shows you this thing called a waypoint that tells you where to go. :P
