Crappy Consoles

In this episode, Tom takes Morgan through a history of the world’s strangest and worst video game consoles.

We previously discussed the well-received but sadly maligned Sega Dreamcast, and the brilliance of the Sega Megadrive, but what about the consoles that were just… nope.

As well as a few honourable mentions, we discuss at length three ‘classic’ consoles: the VHS-powered Action Max, the Nintendo Virtual Boy and the downright bonkers Coleco Telstar Arcade.

We also discover how Tom was about 20 years behind the curve with video games, and Morgan’s strange history with Eiffel 65.

About the Podcast

Two Geeks Two Beers
Nerdy obsessions. Drunken ramblings. A nostalgia podcast about TV, film and video games.
Tom and Morgan are two mates who love talking nonsense about pop culture, while also enjoying a beer. We've taken our drunken ramblings from the pub to the studio to teach each other about all kinds of films, TV shows, video games and more. From '80s cartoons to '90s kids shows, action film franchises to cult games, we'll chat about anything remotely geek-related, often with plenty of confusion, bickering and fond nostalgia.
