Ever wondered what the Chex-themed first-person shooter was like? What about the best Mario bootlegs or who the best dogs are in video games? Well wonder no longer because SpaceHamster is here to answer all of those questions and more. These are the ten best SpaceHamster videos, and unlike his top ten lists there’s no clear winner here, they’re all good.
A real-time strategy game in which you battle animal hybrids against each other sounds like a winning combination, but Impossible Creatures is far from that. SpaceHamster himself may not be good at combinations either, but even his “spork” is better than this game. Lobster elephants are still a hilarious concept though. Even with all that, this video is worth watching for the goofy main character of the game alone.

In real life, dogs are man’s best friend, but in video games they can be literally anything. They can even be man’s best friend! We all have our favorites, but which dogs are the best? SpaceHamster takes an in-depth look at just what makes these dogs so great, and why they’re the best.
Mr. Do! The Arcade Classic
Back when arcades were at their peak, it was common for games to be ported to home consoles. It was also common for these to be worse than their cabinet counterparts.

This video features some of the best clown-based arcade gameplay, and that’s not a phrase to be thrown around lightly.

Here SpaceHamster dives into the highly cerebral plot of Chex Quest to find out just how it holds up.

Bootleg Mario Games on Sega Genesis
Normally one would expect Mario game bootlegs to be on a Nintendo console, but some bootleggers go above and beyond and make these games for other consoles. It’s fitting that some bootlegs would end up on the Sega Genesis, one of Nintendo’s prime competitors during its heyday. Are these games any good though? SpaceHamster is here to find out precisely that.
The Learning Company made so many educational games that it would be surprising if anyone reading this hasn’t played at least one. Treasure Mountain was a part of the Treasure Hunters line of games, and like the rest of that series, is one incredibly strange title. If you’ve never played any of the other entries in this bizarre line, you should at least check out SpaceHamster’s video on Treasure Mountain. You might learn something.
There are a lot of dungeon crawlers out there; games in which you navigate a massive dungeon, typically in the first-person perspective.

Stonekeep is a lesser-known game in the genre, and the live action intro might be a reason for that. This video is SpaceHamster’s analysis on an otherwise overlooked game.
