I did!  I thought I had commented on it.  I thought it was hilarious!

Certainly a lot better than the other video he did recently!

He really should stick to doing stuff like this that is actually funny.

It was really good. He seemed to take this serious and his jokes were actually funny.

I had the Odyssey 2 first and most of the 2600 sports games were an improvement except golf. Still remember getting Video Olympics(which he forgot to play). Back then it was great. Now I see it for what it was Pong disguised as different sports. Young and dumb.

I really like Video Olympics, it looks terrible but is a lot of fun to play - especially with 4-players!

Never really watched any of his stuff, but this was hilarious. The whole football rant was ace.

I have never played the 2600 versions of these games. Still, they both look impressive.

California Games is excellent on the 2600.  It's remarkable they even attempted it but the fact that it was done well makes it even more impressive.

Summer Games, the other Epyx title, was excellent too:



It's a lot more varies and much less joystick intensive than Activision's waggle-fest Decathlon:
