In Memoriam: The 4 Gaming Shows That Were Worth Watching on G4

From PSS:

Wasn't to big into Cheat, but I did enjoy the other three shows. I also really liked Judgement Day just because X-play while good was only one reviewer so having a second opinion on things was really nice. For me G4 descent into mediocrity became apparent in 2006 when Sarah Lane left AOTS, which it seems was also around when Arena and Icons ended.

Judgement Day was really the only review show I cared about for a few reasons. One is what you said about it being 2 guys so the different opinions was always great. Another was they very rarely seemed to express fanboyish tendencies like X-play seemed to.

That said Icons was the only show I really thought was 100% worth watching(and I'm talking about the original not the stupid reboot that focused on people outside of gaming) They were genuinely interesting and it seemed like those working on the show really cared about making the great names in the industry known to the gamers who otherwise might now know who they were.

There was one show on G4 I used to like. The one where it was all about showing previews of upcoming games, and sometimes info about the developers of classic games. Does anyone know what it was called? I want to watch that again...

I loved Cinematech and getting to see all the videos. Before I had the internet it was the easiest way for me to see upcoming game trailers.

G4 needs a new name anyway.It is no longer a station for gamers,its a station that sometimes plays shows gamers will watch.Wish they would stop with all the ninja warriors for hours on end also.

Well, it sounds like they are getting a new name with the Rebranding.

I do still wish Code Monkey's would make a return in some form. I miss that show.
