There’s something about watching an old computer restoration that I find intriguing. Yes, you read that right. LGR is a show about restoring old computers and playing classic video games on vintage PCs. If you thought LGR stood for something else, well you’re wrong. It actually stands for Lazy Game Reviews.
Contrary to what the name suggests, from what I’ve seen, there’s more restoring than reviewing involved — and I like it! This channel ticks every checkbox on what I consider entertaining content. I can relate to this guy. I used to spend hours on a beige Gateway desktop that ran Windows Millennium Edition. Judging from his 758k subscriber count on YouTube, I’m in good company.
I like these videos so much that sometimes I binge watch them. I even showed one to my girlfriend as a date activity. Luckily we’re close like that and she indulged me by sitting through the whole video! She’s not a tech geek, but I love telling her about the techie stuff I’m up to (like installing SSL certificates, figuring out what DNSSEC is, and the new features that were added to Final Cut Pro X). I’m a lucky man!
For the tech geeks out there, you can appreciate this video. This is one of the videos I showed my girlfriend. Notice I said one of them, because through the course of our time together I know I’ve shown her several. If you’re not a techie, I encourage you to expand your horizons and watch LGR on YouTube. It’s really great!
