Last week on The Game BOOB show...

*farting noise*

The Game BOOB show (or "Teh Gaym Boob") is a parody show created by David Savage. At first, it seems like your typical parody of The Irate Gamer, only with a name parodying the Game Dude. However, unlike many other parodies, The Game BOOB show doesn't set its limits at just the Irate Gamer. One could say that The Game BOOB show is a parody of angry reviewing in general, since other reviewers such as The Nostalgia Critic, The Cinema Snob, and even The Angry Video Game Nerd himself are subjected to parody.

Much of the humor of this show revolves around Critical Research Failure Played for Laughs, vulgar toilet humor, the acting of David Savage himself (who plays the Game Boob with very ridiculous and derpy mannerisms, expressions, and voice), contradictory imagery (that "gun"/"screwdriver" he says you get in Donkey Kong? ... yeah...), and overall failure so epic that it would make Irate Gamer himself blush.

The episodes used to be uploaded on David Savage's initial YouTube channel, TheGameBOOBshow, but he has since deleted the episodes from that channel and declared it dead. Fortunately, Savage has uploaded some of the episodes (albeit at a very slow rate) back to YouTube on his current channel, TheSavageExperience.

In Real Life, David Savage is friends with Emer Prevost of Reaction & Review, and has even requested a movie for that series once.

Tropes related to The Game BOOB show:

  • Accentuate the Negative: ... let's just say that Game Boob rarely, if ever, has positive things to say about the games he reviews.
  • A Date with Rosie Palms: Apparently, as seen in the King Kong and NES episodes, researching and Game Boob's business schedule both involve rubbing one out to an Irate Gamer video.
  • Affectionate Parody: Of Irate Gamer, Angry Video Game Nerd, Nostalgia Critic, Cinema Snob, and angry reviewing in general.
  • Angrish: Game Boob starts spouting it off in the Super Mario RPG whenever he goes into an Unstoppable Rage.
  • Back from the Dead: Mr. Miyamoto, as revealed in the Super Mario Bros. episode.
  • Bowdlerization: When one of his YouTube videos involving the Irate Gamer was taken down by someone named Cry Wolf Productions, David Savage took down the King Kong episode and put it back up with every reference to Chris Bores removed...and replaced with TakeThats to Cry Wolf. A justified example, since this was at a time when Cry Wolf was abusing YouTube's flag feature and removing any videos that contained even the slightest hint of Chris Bores for (fake) copyright infringement.
    • Another example, this time Played for Laughs. Savage uploaded a "cleaned up" version of his Super Mario Bros. episode, with a disclaimer at the beginning of the video, a somewhat edited intro, everything that could be considered "inappropriate" editednote , and a different ending note . The best part is that this "cleaned-up" version manages to be just as funny, if not more than, the original video.
      • Getting Crap Past the Radar: The Game Boob still says "porno" in the video, even though the shot of Diddy Kong... bothering Mario is censored by a yellow Subscribe banner. He also leaves the scene from The Great Dictator in, albeit somewhat edited.
  • Bread, Eggs, Milk, Squick: The King Kong episode has a Double Subversion.
    "King Kong is one of the most iconic characters of all time. He was everywhere. Lunchboxes, hats, action figures, porn shops, Japan, riding bombs..."
    • In the Super Mario Bros. episode...
    "Marlin the french chef was the most famous sea of famous video characters. Whatever genre he's been in has become an instant classic. Baseball, golf, racing, Richard Simmons Workout videos, porno..."
  • Brick Joke: When Game Boob receives pills from Dr. Mario for his sicky-sicky-ness, he asks if they're illegal, which the doctor confirms they are. Near the end of the video, the cops come knocking at Game Boob's door...
  • Continuity Nod: Game Boob is aware of the timeline he traveled to to kill Mr. Miyamoto... somehow, and also knows that he shouldn't know about it.
  • Department of Redundancy Department: Plenty.
    • "When you press start to start the game, the game starts you off with RoboCop at the start of the first level."
    • "Anyways, the object of the game is to beat the game, and the way to beat the game is to beat the enemies is to beat the game."
    • "So, you've beaten the game, just for the game to say 'Heh, sorry retrosplunker, but for you to beat the game, you have to beat it again to beat it'. Well that's just stupid! I don't want to beat it again to beat it off again!"note 
    • "Anyways, I need something to cure my sicky-sicky-ness, and I got the sick game that'll be able to cure my sicky-sickness."
    • "As I point out to you the whole point of this game, let me point out to you something that's pointed out to me..."
    • "Anyways, as I was playing the game, I noticed something that made me noticed something...
      • Even parodied in the Dr. Mario episode.
      Game Boob (Voice Over): And that game is Dr. Marlin.
      Game Boob: And that game is Dr. Marlin... oh wait...
  • Discretion Shot: One in the King Kong episode, when Game Boob makes love to Jake Gyllenhaal.
  • Dumb Character, Smart Actor: The Game Boob is an idiot and a complete moron. On the other hand, David Savage, the creator of the series and actor who plays the Game Boob, is actually a very smart and intelligent person in real life.
  • Early Installment Weirdness: The King Kong episode, while still hilarious, had more voiceover work and less acting work.
  • Evil Twin: The Anti-Boob for the Game Boob, though he's not really what you'd call "evil".
  • Hostile Show Takeover: The Anti-Boob attempts this in the beginning of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles IV episode by banishing the Game Boob to the Anti-verse, and succeeds... until Game Boob manages to return by opening his back door.
  • Incredibly Lame Pun: He usually follows these with "Heh, you see what I did there?" in the Super Mario Bros. episode.
    • "Why does this game DICKtate..."
    • "Putting the dicks away..."
    • "I don't want to beat it again to beat it off again!"
  • Jump Scare: In the Super Mario Bros. episode, when Game Boob is laughing with Mr. Miyamoto, the camera quickly starts zooming in to his face, and the laughing is changed to a... rather startling gurgling noise that's capable of catching you off guard.
    • Done twice in the Dr. Mario episode. The first time is a subversion that isn't scary. The second time, it's played straight, and it's the shot from the Super Mario Bros. episode returning.
  • Manipulative Editing: Parodied in the Super Mario Bros. episode, where he shows sped-up footage of World 2-3... and then denies that the footage is sped up.
  • Mirror Universe: The "Anti-verse"note  in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles IV episode, home to the Anti-Boob.
  • Mushroom Samba: The two "research" scenes from the RoboCop Vs. The Terminator episode.
    • Let's not forget when Game Boob gets "addicted" to Dr. Mario's pills.
  • No Indoor Voice: After getting pissed off enough at RoboCop Vs. The Terminator, Game Boob eventually takes the cartridge and gives a frustrated shout towards it... which changes between shots.
  • Oh, Crap!: Game Boob has this reaction when Dr. Mario confirms that the pills are illegal.
  • Our Lawyers Advised This Trope
    Copyright 2010 STD Produkshuns. If ewe use dis witott my purmyshun, I will seu u for evry sent u got. YewToob will ban anyone dat infurenges on my werk. So dere.
  • Reset Button: Near the end of the Dr. Mario episode, Game Boob wishes for everything that happened in the episode to have never happened at all. Cut to earlier that morning, and the Game Boob is in the same sick state he was in at the beginning. Played for Laughs as usual, as Game Boob acknowledges the fact that he just wished away the entire episode.
  • Right for the Wrong Reasons: Game Boob's complaint about Super Mario Bros. having a four-player feature that was stripped down to two players and only allowed players to take turns. Technically, he's right. Super Mario Bros. really does have a two-player feature that only allows players to take turns. However, no such "four-player feature" was ever implemented at all.
  • Running Gag: Several.
    • Futurama references in the King Kong episode (a total of three).
      • Also, there's the shot of Game Boob pointing out "dog doo. That's what that is! A big pile of dog doo". Each time, the "dog doo" bit is dubbed over into a different phrase (Cat crap, Pigeon poo, and Horse hockey). The camera also cuts away so you can't see his mouth.
    • Whenever video game footage is show, sometimes footage from a completely different game is shown and passed off as part of the game being reviewed (i.e. footage of Mario Bros., Cat Mario, and "Super Mario World" being shown in the Super Mario Bros. episode).
    • There's one involving an image of Chris Bores bending over popping up, accompanied with a farting noise, before the intro of every episode.
      • In fact, fart noises in general can be considered a running gag.
    • Starting in RoboCop Vs. The Terminator, various music tracks remixed to The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air theme (Fresh Prince of Castlevania, Fresh Earthworm of Bel-Air, etc.).
    • Though hard to notice, the Dr. Mario episode had an "Unnecessary Sound Effect" count that would appear for a single frame whenever such a sound effect played.
  • Take That!: As noted above in the Bowdlerization example, the King Kong episode, a YouTube user named Cry Wolf Productions was going around, falsely flagging videos that so much as even referenced Chris Bores, the Irate Gamer. In response, David Savage took down the King Kong episode, edited the video so that every single reference to Irate Gamer was removed, and placed it back up. Not only was every reference removed, however, but they were also replaced by jabs aimed at Cry Wolf Productions.
  • Temporal Paradox: Game Boob experiences one in the King Kong episode. After killing Mr. Miyamoto, he finds out that he doesn't exist in the timeline and starts fading away... though not before cursing Zoidberg. Back in the present, we see Game Boob reviewing Donkey Kong Jr. (which he refers to as a Son of Kong video game).
  • Unstoppable Rage: Very much so in the Super Mario RPG episode.
  • Vulgar Humor
  • You Didn't See That: In the RoboCop Versus The Terminator episode. Game Boob is having trouble trying to kill enemies... until he actually kills one. His response is to tell the audience the trope word for word before cutting to a shot of him dying.

Just one of those days,
when you don't wanna wake up!
Everything is fucked!
Everybody sucks!
You don't really know why,
but you wanna justify,
rippin' someone's head off!

How well does it match the trope?
