Before, I was neither a hater or supporter of Michael Pacher, and have avoided all discussions around his comments. Now that I've saw a couple episodes of Pach-Attack, I've found him to be a decent enough guy who seems to know what he's talking about, and I don't see the "Nintendo Sucks" attitude a lot of people claim he has (heck, there's even a copy of KI:U sitting behind him).

I'll continue to avoid these discussions, but I do urge everyone to listen to the man himself, to make their opinions on his views, rather than forming opinions around quotes you see on gaming websites (no matter whether it be NL, IGN, Destructoid, or whatever, his quotes will always be out of context).

I'm going to second that Smooth McGroove suggestion; I really like some of his stuff.

His takes on Stone Tower Temple, Spark Mandrill and the shop theme from Ocarina of Time are my personal favorites.

There are new episodes up for:

Did You Know Gaming? - Super Smash Bros. Part 2

Cool Bits - Yoshi's Island

Also, Classic Game Room has been reviewing Intellivision games lately, and that's been pretty humorous.

I just recent discovered Smosh and Smosh Games on Youtube. I especially like their Thats Why I am single show and their parody videos. If you haven't check them out yet I highly recommend it.

There are new videos up for:

Cool Bits - Star Wars: Shadows of the Empire

Pach-Attack - Transferring Gamerscore & Achievements to next gen

@Tasuki, I've always been interested in those, but haven't taken the plunge. I may do so the next time I hit up YouTube.

Can someone recommend me some knowledgeable videos on gaming, but without the horrible jokes like most popular channels?

Lots of censorship here...

Did You Know Gaming? (DYKGaming) - They're more trivia videos (easter eggs, regional differences, cut content, etc.), but they have built up quite a bit of videos, and have no corny humor.

Easter Egg Hunting (DYKGaming) - This is a newer series, where they reveal every easter egg or area of interest in a particular game, in order of appearance. It's newer, so they don't have that many videos (and they're still working on their first game, Metal Gear Solid), but just like the aforementioned series, it's entertaining with no corny humor.

The Video Game Years (RetrowareTV.com) - Admittedly this has some quirky humor (it's set up like those I love the 80's/90's shows, so that's what you can expect), but they're really well made, and very, very interesting. So far they've done 1977, 1978, 1979, 1980, and part one of 1981. With all parts together, each year gets about 40-50 minutes of attention.

I discovered DKYGaming a while ago, but I recommend The Easter Egg Hunter on the channel Chipsturs, similar to DKYG's show, but older and has more episodes.

Ah, I saw a few of his videos a few months ago, and while good, I prefer the layout & presentation of Did You Know Gaming? more.

They've expanded & went from monthly to weekly recently, so it wouldn't surprise me if they surpassed his number of videos soon.

So far they have:

  • Super Mario part 1
  • Super Mario part 2
  • Super Mario part 3
  • Pokémon part 1
  • Pokémon part 2
  • Pokémon part 3
  • The Legend of Zelda part 1
  • The Legend of Zelda part 2
  • The Legend of Zelda part 3
  • Final Fantasy part 1
  • Final Fantasy part 2
  • Super Smash Bros. part 1
  • Super Smash Bros. part 2
  • Sonic the Hedgehog
  • Megaman
  • Kirby
  • Metroid
  • Goldeneye 007
  • Crash Bandicoot
  • Grand Theft Auto
  • Resident Evil
  • Star Fox
  • Banjo Kazooie
  • Taco Bell (seriously)

And if you'd include Easter Egg Hunting (which is also under their banner):

  • Metal Gear Solid part 1
  • Metal Gear Solid part 2
  • Metal Gear Solid part 3
  • Metal Gear Solid part 4

So a total of 28 videos so far.

Also, Machinima looks to have a new series called Pop Up Video Game, offering video game trivia (a là Did You Know Gaming or Cool Bits), in a format inspired heavily by those old "Pop Up Video" music videos. Their first episode is Final Fantasy.

Since so many of you mentioned it, I finally checked out a couple of Smooth McGroove's videos, and yeah, those are great!

Also, there's a new episode of Pach-Attack up, where he tackles NextBox rumours.

Have you tried Game Theory? It does have some visual jokes, but makes up for it with very scientific and mathematical facts.

Avian fact of the week: The Moa, an extinct relative of ostrichs and emus that inhabited New Zealand, was the tallest bird that ever lived at 12 ft tall (3.6 m). It was also the only known bird to have no wing structure.
