Gaming TV From Yesteryear – Gamespot TV, Game Emulation

Gaming TV From Yesteryear

This episode of Gamespot TV followed up the E3 ’99 special, so it probably aired in late May or early June 1999. For the main feature, Adam and Lauren talk about the shady world of gaming emulation. It’s quite interesting that some companies, including Apple, were trying to market it legitimately, but I guess it didn’t survive the legal battles.

They also preview Final Fantasy VIII in this episode.

Back when the show was still affiliated with the Gamespot and (the defunct) Videogames.com websites, their review scores came directly from those sites. I suppose the show’s reviews were also based on the written reviews. It wouldn’t be until Ziff Davis sold the network that they would begin using their own five-star scale.
