1[[folder: The games [=LPed=] so far:]]* ''[[VideoGame/{{Dizzy}} Fantasy World Dizzy]]''* ''[[VideoGame/AlexKidd Alex Kidd in Hi-Tech World]]''* ''VideoGame/{{Dreamweb}}''* ''[[VideoGame/HugosHouseOfHorrors Hugo 2: Whodunit]]''* ''VideoGame/FutureWars''* ''VideoGame/{{Manhunter}} 1''* ''VideoGame/CurseOfEnchantia''* ''VideoGame/YoungMerlin''* ''Operation Stealth''[=/=]''VideoGame/JamesBond007TheStealthAffair''* ''VideoGame/{{Normality}}''* ''VideoGame/{{Flashback}}'' (2013 Remake and its EmbeddedPrecursor; unlike the rest of the Let's Plays, this was played live, and they resigned on both games partway through)* ''VideoGame/QuakeII'' - The inaugural "Let's Drown Out" game was chosen for being "[[RealIsBrown visually dull]]" and easy to segue into unrelated discussion.* ''VideoGame/BlueStinger''* ''VideoGame/JustCause2'' - The first video where they played a game they like, but tried to play as [[SelfImposedChallenge boring as possible]] -- Yahtzee does not use the hookshot except where necessary nor does he call for aerial support. [[spoiler:They fail; the game proves highly resistant to not looking exciting for any stretch at time. InUniverse, They even get what they deem a SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome out of it.]]* ''VideoGame/FinalFight'' - Chosen out of Yahtzee's distaste for beat-em-up games.* ''VideoGame/{{Minecraft}}'' - A look at one of Yahtzee's Minecraft works in progress, i.e. tedious building as opposed to any adventuring.* ''VideoGame/AlexKidd In Miracle World'' & ''Alex Kidd in VideoGame/{{Shinobi}} World''* ''VideoGame/SpaceQuestIIIThePiratesOfPestulon''* ''VideoGame/WWFNoMercy''* ''VideoGame/{{Hexen}}: Beyond Heretic''* ''VideoGame/TheSims3''* ''VideoGame/HarvestMoon'' - Yahtzee cited this as one of the first games he played when he discovered UsefulNotes/{{emulation}}, and added that it's more fun to play than to watch.* ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoSanAndreas'' - Similar to ''Just Cause 2'', they played a good game under a boring restriction: only the bicycle is used.* ''VideoGame/SilentHill1'' - Played without using the map.* ''VideoGame/Phantasmagoria2''* ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaSymphonyOfTheNight'' - Played in Richter mode in order to skip all of the story in the regular game.* ''VideoGame/EuroTruckSimulator 2''* ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAuto''* ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedBrotherhood'' - The main story and all side-quests (including DLC) are [[PlayableEpilogue already finished]], so all that remained to be drowned out is [[HundredPercentCompletion chest and flag collection]].* ''Film/JurassicPark'' (SNES)* ''[[VideoGame/{{Myst}} Real Myst]]''* ''Franchise/{{Alien}} 3'' (SNES)* ''VideoGame/BrutalDoom'' - Played while [[ClassicCheatCode invincible]]. Yahtzee reasoned that constant unchanging violence becomes tiresome.* ''VideoGame/VisceraCleanupDetail'' - Billed as a sequel to their Brutal Doom video.* ''Survival Arts''/''VideoGame/JackieChanTheKungFuMaster''/''VideoGame/StreetFighterTheMovie'' (arcade) - Played in a single video named "Some Digitized Fighting Games".* ''Night Shift''* ''VideoGame/SmashTV''* ''VideoGame/{{Proteus}}'' Nearing the end of the video, Yahtzee proposed a Q&A section for the next video since they tend to run out of topics before the actual video could end. This proven quite a success in 'Let's Drown Out Wonderboy III that they dedicated an entire length of 'Let's Drown Out Ghostship Aftermath' to Q&A section.* ''VideoGame/WonderboyIIITheDragonsTrap''* ''Ghostship Aftermath''* ''[[VideoGame/CommanderKeen Keen Dreams]]''* ''VideoGame/CondemnedCriminalOrigins'' - Notable in that in this video, Yahtzee picked this game because he picked up a book and find a random word to based his search of video games on, which in this case it is 'truth'. From then on, the games picked were based on the word either Gabriel or Yahtzee have randomly picked.* ''VideoGame/ThePath''* ''VideoGame/ThiefIITheMetalAge''* ''VideoGame/TheIncredibleHulkUltimateDestruction''* ''VideoGame/{{Limbo}}''* ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid3SnakeEater''* ''Videogame/{{Aquanox}} 2''* ''Film/FightClub: The Game'' [[spoiler:and a bit of ''VideoGame/SnowboardKids'' nearing the end of the video.]]* ''VideoGame/TheOregonTrail''* ''VideoGame/{{Chulip}}''* ''[[VideoGame/HelloHello Hello? Hell...o?]]''* ''VideoGame/DreadOut''* ''VideoGame/GabrielKnight: Sins of the Fathers''* ''VideoGame/FarmingSimulator 2015''* ''VideoGame/MichaelJacksonsMoonwalker''* ''VideoGame/RiseOfTheTriad''* ''VideoGame/DukeNukemForever''* ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBros2''* ''VideoGame/LeisureSuitLarry3PassionatePattiInPursuitOfThePulsatingPectorals'' - Marks the beginning of temporary return to the classic Let's Play model.* ''VideoGame/PoliceQuest''* ''The Rob Blanc Trilogy'' - in an attempt to freshen up the formula, Gabriel ends up playing Yahtzee's [[invoked]] OldShame AGS point-and-click adventure games. From this point on, they alternate between a Let's Drown Out and The Ego Review (where they play games that Yahtzee created).* ''VideoGame/DinkSmallwood''* ''Age Of Evil'' - another of Yahtzee's Old Shames, this time a mod for ''VideoGame/DukeNukem3D''.* ''VideoGame/FTLFasterThanLight'' - returns to the Let's Drown Out model, going into free-association discourse as they play a game.* ''The Trials of Odysseus Kent'' - yet another game by Croshaw.* ''VideoGame/EliteDangerous''* ''[[VideoGame/ChzoMythos 5 Days a Stranger]]'' -A Croshaw game.* ''VideoGame/TitanSouls''* ''[[VideoGame/ChzoMythos 7 Days a Skeptic]]'' -A Croshaw game.* ''VideoGame/CitiesSkylines''* ''VideoGame/AdventuresInTheGalaxyOfFantabulousWonderment'' -A Croshaw game.* ''VideoGame/PapersPlease''* ''VideoGame/TwelveThirteen'' -A Croshaw game.* ''VideoGame/ARKSurvivalEvolved''* ''[[VideoGame/ChzoMythos Trillby's Notes]]'' -A Croshaw game.* ''VideoGame/{{Kholat}}''* ''[[VideoGame/ChzoMythos 6 Days a Sacrifice]]'' -A Croshaw game.* ''VideoGame/TheConsumingShadow'' -A Croshaw game, done to promote its release.* ''VideoGame/RocketLeague''* ''VideoGame/TheArtOfTheft'' -A Croshaw game.* ''VideoGame/DarkSoulsII'' (a complete playthrough, done to replace "The Ego Review", which was drawing to a close. Lasted 23 episodes.)* ''VideoGame/{{Poacher}}'' -A Croshaw game.* ''Abandoned AGS Projects'' -Croshaw games that he cancelled or otherwise never finished. These include sequels to ''Odysseus Kent'' and ''Galaxy of Fantabulous Wonderment,'' as well as the Silent Hill-inspired horror adventures ''Broken Boughs'' and ''Phone''[[note]]The latter was a working title, and the first thing Yahtzee notes is that he later decided a better name would be ''Cell''[[/note]]* ''VideoGame/KeepTalkingAndNobodyExplodes''* ''Literature/TheEyeOfArgon'' -The first piece of ''literature'' on the show. It is audio only.* ''VideoGame/TheConsumingShadow Insanity Edition'' -A Croshaw game, done to promote its release.* ''VideoGame/TheBindingOfIsaac Afterbirth''* ''VideoGame/{{Agario}}''* ''VideoGame/JamesPond 2 Codename: Robocod''* ''VideoGame/SeriousSam BFE''* ''Punch Club''* ''VideoGame/HalfLife1'' (Full game, after Dark Souls 2 drew to a close)* ''VideoGame/XCOMEnemyUnknown'' (Never intended to be a complete playthrough. Alternated with the Resident evil HD remaster. ended on it's fourth episode due to Yahtzee's save files accidentally being deleted and finished with some gameplay from a save files taken late in a different playthrough by Yahtzee.)* ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil1 HD Remaster'' (Chosen by Gabriel to alternate with XCOM Enemy Unknown, suspended after 3 episodes due to the game refusing to load after that point.)* ''Film/TrueLies'' (Last minute replacement for that week's Resident Evil episode)* ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil4 HD'' (Alternated with the games following it. They claimed the playthrough would last "Until we're sick of it," but as they drew near the end they did intend to finish it, however Croshaw's American immigration papers came through quicker than he expected and it was replaced at the last minute with ''Portal 2'' as the final episode of Let's Drown Out, leaving it unfinished.)* ''VideoGame/LureOfTheTemptress''* ''VideoGame/BeneathASteelSky''* ''VideoGame/Portal2'' (Co-Op, GrandFinale)[[/folder]]
