I'm no gamer but I'm an 80's kid so I could relate to heaps in this ingenious ep! Absolutely brillaint! Love it, the graphics, the script was as witty as ever, the pop culture references and the 'happy sappy' ending. Community never fails to deliver....this was top 5 of my favourite eps! Just GOLD!!!
Marvellous character interaction, commitment to the genre, Aesop at the end ... this programme IS a great college indeed. Whoever wrote this episode can die in peace or, even better, live happily and produce more gems like this one. A masterpiece.
Because I grew up with these types of video games in the 90's I loved this episode. It was fun to look and pin point what games they were borrowing from. I also loved the way they were able to reenact how people play video games in large groups (so like hitting each other on purpose and only jumping around for no real reason (Troy)).
I guess the only videogame based episode i could compaire this one too (well one that I can think of off the top of my head) would be the WOW episode from South Park. I dont know if I can say this ones better or worse because they both used their subject matter in really fun ways and they were using two different types of games.
So if you like Community and if you like retro games then you should give it a watch. And I got to say this, I hope that they release this game someday and that you could play as all the study group members. That would be cool
OH MAN! This episode literally had me as geeking out the whole way through. And I thought community couldn't top their barrier shattering episodes like "Abed's Uncontrollable Christmas" and "Remedial Chaos Theory". Episodes like this one, as well as the two that followed it are why I am in love with this show. They dive into incredible adventures that I truly wish I could enjoy in real life. Community is beyond a sitcom; it has transcended the bars that other shows have set, if not obliterated them. We've got a fourth season (thank god), let's go for two more...and a movie!
If you thought the 8 bit segment of Futurama's "Reincarnation" episode was great, you'll go full Dean Pelton over "Digital Estate Planning." Giancarlo Esposito (Gustavo Fring of Breaking Bad) plays the heavy and Abed gets to save the princess, literally, in a small heart-tugging final scene. This show has more savvy, smarts and creativity in a single episode than some sitcoms have in an entire season so, naturally, it's destined to die young.
