Looks like it was made in the late 90s.


The main thing I think of when I look at him now is - 'bald'.

This is absolutely amazing, he is unable to move past 1994 emotionally or in terms of creativity.

The most modern thing in that video? The interlaced video playing on a progressive encoding artefacts.

I'm sorry but I still keep thinking about how they stitched him up on Gamesmaster that one time. Referenced about 3 minutes into his first "show" to boot.

It was childish, but he really took it badly and I still find it hilarious.

No. the knobhead from GamesMaster & Gamesworld. The one in the bandana.

Ah, well that's before my time but that music video thing at the end was amazing, the kind of shitty pervy crap from gaming magazines as a kid, except in 2018

This video needs to go into the desolation thread. At least Mr Biffos show is properly filmed.

The max video output is 480p... that has to be deliberate right?? We didn't need HD in the golden age of gaming!

I wonder if this 100 percent geniue or a tounge in cheek look at himself. I hope its a deluded vanity project, it really is quite a spectical.

It certainly seems to be a fantastically deluded vanity project. He's basically Michael Flatley with a Megadrive. Almost the entirety of that first episode is dedicated to Davey boy talking about himself with an actual games content of about 1%.

A 50-year-old man calling himself "The Games Animal". Jesus.

He's the Xenon Zebra and he doesn't want anyone to know.

Stumbled up this tremendous interview which further cements his... appeal:

I still don't understand how he was stitched up with the Mario 64 game. He tried to take a shortcut and messed it up. The Games Animal screwed The Games Animal. Glad to see he's not dwelling on it though.

The stitchup was that the game they were playing hadn't even been released in the UK at the time, and he refused to even play it on import.

CH: People still talk about the moment you lost on Games Master. At the time you said you was set up. What was going through your head at the time? Were the tears real or just some expert acting?


Dave Perry: Tears? There weren’t any tears that I remember. But I was majorly pissed off what had gone on that day. We were told that if we took part in the quiz and got through to the final, then there would be a play off on a neutral game. Probably a new version of WipeOut from Psygnosis. However, when I turned up on the day, the game had been changed suspiciously to Mario 64 on the N64. I had recently spoken out in the trade press saying that I would not play Mario 64 until it was released officially in the UK, as the amount of press attention the new Nintendo console was getting was ruining the Christmas games market in the UK. So everyone new I had not played this game as it was not due out in the UK until the next year.


When I enquired if any of the finalists had played the game, it turned out that only one had… host Dominik Diamond’s best friend. Not only had he played it, he had been playing it constantly for the past few months and completed it a number of times as he was helping develop Earthworm Jim 3D. Hardly a neutral game.


When I complained to the Director, I was told not to worry because he would not get through to the final, and if he did, then the game would be changed. I should have smelled a rat.


So, I played on, and won every round. However, when we got to the semi-final, if you watch the whole show you will notice that at least one question comes up about Earthworm Jim! The game Dominik’s friend was helping develop! Coincidence?
So now he’s in the final against me, on a machine I’ve never played on, on a game I’ve never played, but he’s been playing on for the past few months.


When I went to see the Director about his promise that this wouldn’t happen, he simply told me that there wasn’t time to change anything as the crew had all run over on their scheduled time and the final had to take place immediately. He also told me that if I walked I wouldn’t be allowed to use the company’s hire car that had brought me to the shoot and would have to get home on my own. I was in the middle of an industrial estate in London on a Saturday evening. There weren’t even any cabs. I was f*cked.


Feeling set-up and really hard done by I decided to try and play my way out of it, but predictably lost by a couple of seconds. I felt betrayed that the show I’d helped create, and had served so loyally could do this to me. I should have reacted better, but I just wanted out. At least it made good TV. I quit the show there and then and never went back.


CH: What did you think of Mario 64 once you got a chance to play the full version?


Dave Perry: I’ve never played it. I have always hated those cutesy Nintendo games.

If it was such a stitch up and the other guy had been playing it constantly for months, why is he so shite at it? I would have seen it if he'd totally humiliated him, but frankly it looks both dudes' first attempts. Games Animal really just a miserable howler monkey.

This is brilliant! He still went out and bought Mario 64 though, despite saying how much he hated it. I hope, so hope, that he has spent the last few decades playing it everyday, trying to beat the original time and still failing.

I like how he made such a big deal about putting this box of sentimental stuff together that means something to him, then towards the end says he’s not sure what’s in it.

He blatantly wrote the songs as well.

I can't wait to find out what makes him such a 'Games Animal', there wasn't much about it in this one, so i hope he expands on it. He should do as there seems to be a lot of merch displaying his logo.

Also, that ending song, i hope he changes it to all other game genres as the series progresses.
