Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?

      This Joel guy makes me laugh. I dont think he's being condescending like many 'industry commentators' are whining about. He's more being silly, like you would when watching the doritos pope asking the same bland questions he's been cleared to ask. Hell, he's just had him on the ropes about actually picking a game he likes the look of and he clammed up.

      The games industry is far too insulated from criticism and mockery. No 'journalist' asks hard questions because they can't risk of losing their access. And oh god, don't poke fun at anything gaming related!

          Broken Age looked great. I'm behind on the documentary, so I hadn't noticed how beautiful the art is in that game. Very good to see it coming along so nicely.

          I could not give a shit about a Borderlands adventure game, but the Game of Thrones one could be awesome.

          No Man's Sky looks great. Really ambitious from a tiny team.

          I'm a little disappointed that they didn't show Witcher 3 or Titanfall gameplay, but those are definitely two of my most anticipated games next year.

        I loved the concert! Best part besides Joel McHale. Geoff jealous he's not McHale.

          At least I wasn't the only one. I loved the jazzy songs in between the rapping portions and I actually really liked that last song, Sleepwalking.

        I had a good laugh at the Mega64 guys because they were so random but still introspective.

        "PS5, why get a PS4 when you know they're already making another one!?"

          "Joke of the Year! OUYA!!!" funniest line of the whole show.

          "C'mon Nintendo we already played the Wii make a new one already!"
          "Hey, there's already a new Nintendo console."
          "Really? Then why didn't they tell anybody?"

          "We already played Zelda man add some variety. Just put it in a middle-eastern setting, remove the sword and add some guns man it'll be like a fresh new game."

          Some pretty funny stuff in that segment. At first I thought I would hate it when it started, then I realized they were poking fun at the random viral community, not mimicking them.

            That Zelda segment was hilarious, they basically pasted COD on top of it.

      I liked how the guy from community made Geoff look all ackward and uncomfortable.

        I wonder if he has a clause in his contract now that he will never appear in a shot with Doritos and/or Mountain Dew.
