The Horrible Show 02-09-11: Just 5 More Minutes: Our Classics

The Horrible ShowRet-ro. It’s story time this week as Justin, Cole, Ethan, Justin, and Christina relive the first games that they couldn’t put down. We hope you can handle the memories of Doom II, Zeldas, Castlevanias, and Metal Gears more tastefully than we could. Send in your questions to simon@horriblenight.com or @TheHorribleShow

Just a warning to those listeners who can count, avoid it during this week’s show. We get a bit too excited about the classic games that sucked up all of our time growing up. Not before our Threesomes of the Week teach us proper guitar techniques. The On the Spot question asks “What game do you wish you spent more time with?” and Justin L reveals one of his darkest Zelda secrets. The Just 5 More Minutes conversation runs the gamut of classic franchises from Final Fantasy to Metal Gear, Civilization to Star Wars, and Castlevania to Diddy Kong? Classic is apparently a much looser term than we realized. Thankfully, FOX News tightens things up with their Worst Video Game in the World award. Hide ya kids.
