The [[http://www.youtube.com/user/Frankomatic Obscure Game Theatre]] is a channel run by Website/YouTube user Frankomatic that is dedicated to Let's Plays of older games. Although the title of the channel includes the word 'Obscure', unknown games aren't the only focus as the occasional more well-known game or game series sneaks itself in as well. Almost all genres of games have been touched with the exception of Flight Simulations. Though Frankomatic has let it be known that he is a particular fan of {{Adventure Game}}s, he is currently taking a break from them after completing a run of a large chunk of the VideoGame/KingsQuest series.

!!This Let's Player provides examples of:

* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: Done in-universe in one death scene in ''VideoGame/BrainDead13'', when Frankomatic [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ElPCERAew6o sees Fritz in a different light]] when he plants a calla lily on Lance's grave (in spite of the fact that he did this to mock Lance's dead body):
-->"[[JerkWithAHeartOfGold At least he's nice enough to put a flower on your grave...]] [[AntagonistInMourning and he's not such a jerk after all.]]"
* {{Angrish}}: A recurring theme in of the OGT. Particularly in a number of the more sadistic titles, such as the [[http://www.youtube.com/user/Frankomatic#grid/user/6A97424C04710FA4 Adventures of Rad Gravity]], [[http://www.youtube.com/user/Frankomatic#grid/user/30A4F01863F5323F Air Fortress]], [[http://www.youtube.com/user/Frankomatic#grid/user/B505521FFD97078A Amagon]], [[http://www.youtube.com/user/Frankomatic#grid/user/FC02D260CFB01697 the Lone Ranger]], and [[http://www.youtube.com/user/Frankomatic#grid/user/D0E8C578B32FEB88 Space Ace]].
* BlatantLies: The into video on his youtube channel's main joke is stating a "feature" of his videos, and then cutting to clips of him doing the exact opposite (ex. "Flawless Gameplay!" cue him walking into a games version of gombas.)
* BreadEggsMilkSquick: When Frankomatic tries hard not to lose [[spoiler:in the final confrontation that involves {{dancing|IsSeriousBusiness}}]] in ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XVSNr1LBBAk Brain Dead 13]]'':
-->'''Frankomatic:''' [[Music/VillagePeople Y! M! C! A!]] Splits... {{mooning}}... ''[Lance gets [[MadeOfPlasticine shot full of holes]] and [[CriticalExistenceFailure reduced to his eyeballs]]]'' ...SugarWiki/{{f|unnyMoments}}ailure!
* ClassicVideoGameScrewYous: Far, far too many to list. However, few games can match up to the pure, unbridled gamer-hatred that is [[http://www.youtube.com/user/Frankomatic#grid/user/6A97424C04710FA4 Adventures of Rad Gravity]]. Listen for the precise moment that Frankomatic's soul [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PBqiD1Jq-vI#t=4m43s snaps like a twig]].
* TheComputerIsACheatingBastard: Just one of the many ways SNES's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZVvioRWQ_uo#t=1m48s Space Ace]] is a testament to sadistic game design.
* DancePartyEnding: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qpF7AdGnnUY#t=0m33s Skull and Crossbones]] When rescuing your damsel from a creepy, rape-faced wizard just isn't enough.
* DeadpanSnarker: Frank's default setting is around here.
* EverythingTryingToKillYou: Perhaps ''the'' prevailing theme of [[http://www.youtube.com/user/Frankomatic#g/p Obscure Game Theatre]]. Particularly evident in the [[VideoGame/KingsQuest King's Quest Series]], [[http://www.youtube.com/user/Frankomatic#grid/user/D0E8C578B32FEB88 Space Ace]], [[http://www.youtube.com/user/Frankomatic#grid/user/A686A4D3D5A15E2F Dragon's Lair]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/user/Frankomatic#grid/user/2396BB2546876B23 Brain Dead 13]] among others.
* ExtraordinarilyEmpoweredGirl: Rosella, a DamselInDistress in the third installment, becomes noticeably more capable than both her father and brother in [[http://www.youtube.com/user/Frankomatic#grid/user/F8A1E60F9F5D67F4 King's Quest IV]] and again with her mother, Queen Valanice, in [[http://www.youtube.com/user/Frankomatic#grid/user/764194153B217C89 King's Quest VII]].
* FastForwardGag: A long-running gag often brought on by [=YouTube=]'s strict recording limits and / or failure. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U-IqwEy3DvQ Donkey Kong - Gameboy]]
* FlatWhat: Frank and Cess have this in Willy Beamish when the Japanese tourists become [[spoiler:Ninjas]].
* GenreSavvy: Frank himself is this, demonstrating a broad knowledge in popular culture, movie and video game cliches, and anime. It borders on [[DangerouslyGenreSavvy dangerous.]]
* TheGhost: Frankomatic himself is usually this, rarely appearing in front of the camera.
* LoadsAndLoadsOfLoading: The Sega CD port of The Adventures of Willy Beamish. Frank at one point calls it Loading Screen: The Game.
* MalevolentArchitecture: Evident in many entries of the [[http://www.youtube.com/user/Frankomatic#g/p Obscure Game Theatre]], however none more prevalent than in the [[VideoGame/KingsQuest King's Quest Series]]; where in a world filled with malevolent dragons, witches, and trolls; stairs, walkways and bridges are the leading causes of death.
* TheManyDeathsOfYou: The myriad of death scenes within the [[VideoGame/KingsQuest King's Quest Series]], [[http://www.youtube.com/user/Frankomatic#grid/user/D0E8C578B32FEB88 Space Ace]], [[http://www.youtube.com/user/Frankomatic#grid/user/A686A4D3D5A15E2F Dragon's Lair]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/user/Frankomatic#grid/user/2396BB2546876B23 Brain Dead 13]] are enough to warrant their own end credit. Also provides numerous examples of YetAnotherStupidDeath and HaveANiceDeath.
* MindScrew: [[http://www.youtube.com/view_play_list?p=F420F74E16AF2517 Panic!]] is pretty much the prime example of this ever committed to the Sega CD. Particularly [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4f8CZCb285A#t=3m30s this insanity]].
* MobstacleCourse: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6C8L7JzRSys#t=3m12s Amagon]] A scrawny Marine and a hungry dinosaur in a foot-race! A daring escape or deserted island cuisine?
* MusicalEpisode: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XV6zt37w0QY What is Kirby]]. That is all.
* NintendoHard: The OGT hits this kind of game a lot, from [[http://www.youtube.com/view_play_list?p=30A4F01863F5323F Air Fortress]] to [[http://www.youtube.com/view_play_list?p=D0E8C578B32FEB88 Space Ace on the SNES]].
* OneOfUs: Frankomatic noted in his Panic All Gags Run that he enjoys seeing this very page be updated.
* PrecisionFStrike: One is given to Cedric in King's Quest V after Graham returns from the desert after almost dying from dehydration, getting stuck in an ancient treasure vault, and stabbed to death by bandits.
* RatedMForManly: Ducking spears, dodging boulders, leaping over spiders, crocs and snakes, swimming with piranha and crossing broken rope bridges? It must be the [[http://www.youtube.com/user/Frankomatic#grid/user/39C9F926158923AA Aztec Challenge!]] Add killer flamingos ([[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Itu-KVNpJPc#t=3m02s that're full of grenades]]) and you'll have [[http://www.youtube.com/user/Frankomatic#grid/user/28E3FD71B3C55262 Rambo]] for the NES.
* SelfDeprecation: "I need more extra lives, as I have none of my own."
* ShoutOut: Lately, several have been made to [[WebVideo/DragonBallAbridged DBZ Abridged]].
* SoUnfunnyItsFunny: Frank and Cess' reaction to [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w4Serr9flhY&t=3m13s this little gem]], courtesy of Panic!.
* SpyFiction: Martini in a pop-top beer can: [[http://www.youtube.com/user/Frankomatic#grid/user/911AC2E3EE1CE25C Covert Action]]. Where, even in success, the [[TheSpymaster Chief]] is a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=20WKr8IOsPk#t=5m19s jerk]].
* TemptingFate: [[LampshadeHanging Mentioned]] during the Let's Fail of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YMIO2EoiGEk#t=4m25s Hercules]] on the C64. [[spoiler: Fate takes a little while to respond.]] It also probably wasn't the best idea to mention that Moonstone has random lockups early on in the run of the game, either.
* TestosteronePoisoning: When being a MANLY man just isn't MANLY enough, there's [[http://www.youtube.com/user/Frankomatic#grid/user/5F74123E5D380C68 Blood & Guts!]]
* WolfWhistle: Frankomatic does this when Vivi is first introduced in ''Brain Dead 13''.
* YourPrincessIsInAnotherCastle: [[http://www.youtube.com/user/Frankomatic#grid/user/0D53954D74FF93B3 Wizards & Warriors]] In which our hero, Kuros, rescues countless damsels only to leave them, cold and alone, to fend for themselves in his search for his princess.
