I was not aware of this game show, but as a 90's kid, it would have been my favorite, easily.

If you've not seen it before, I recommend you check it out. It's pretty "rad."

At least check out the theme at the beginning.


(Also it includes all the commercials, which are an amazing 90's time capsule as well)

I __LOVED__ video power as a kid. I watched it as much as I could and really wanted to be on the show. The best part was at the end when the kids ran all over the place and grabbed whatever games they could. I always dreamed about how awesome that would be to be able to grab as many games as possible.

Watching this show is something else, I had the intro memorized and wow it's got that incredible 90's rap thing going for it.


I wonder if this guy was hyped on Coffee, he is really amped for each take. Never really noticed that as a kid, I was just really excited to be watching it.

They guy with the guitar isn't actually playing it. The music is all beats and keyboards. He looks "Polly Shore Amazing" holding that guitar though.

This is so incredibly 90s. I had forgotten this show existed. I wanted to go through that course and grab games. I remember as a kid being annoyed with kids getting terrible games and passing up great ones. At least the winner in this one got Duck Tales and Batman, two of the best.

As for "hyped on coffee"-- I'm thinking another word that starts with C. They cut out all the times he rubbed his nose or sniffed. This was the early 90s after all, everyone was doing it :D

The commercials in this are amazing. I remember some of them. That Honey Nut Cheerios commercial hit me right in the nostalgia.

And wow, the "fashion" choices, and the 90s mullets.

I was a 90s kid, basically. Born in 81, but I came into who I am in the 90s, and feel the most attachment to that decade. It doesn't seem that long ago, but things like this show just how far back that was.

Huh, I wonder if this was the start of eSports.

This and The Wizard ghost

I think it could have been an early start to eSports and I think the Wizard and the Nintendo World Championships really helped that along for sure.

Having the commercials really does make this video something very special, I remember many of these. I always thought that eastport pack was something really cool but it was just a bag that had a Gameboy in it.
