If you’ve never been one to side with everything critics say, then you share a similar mentality to the video game review series ‘Is It Really That Bad?’

Hosted by Derek Alexander of ‘Happy Video Game Nerd’ fame and sometimes co-hosted with the equally entertaining Calvin Hansen, ‘Is It Really That Bad?’ revisits infamous games which have been unanimously called out for their utter crap quality. The hilarious duo then endure the task of playing through hours of poor computer programming to see whether each video game title has any redeeming qualities that nullify what prior critics have said.

Though viewers may expect the funnies to come from the utter torment Alexander and Hansen go through while playing each game, the true comedic gold comes from the pair’s outrageous comments and observations during their playthroughs. Stats for Rotten Game Redemption Reviews Trending: Older & Chilly
