Talking Heads: Jimmy Fallon
Air Date: June 25, 2010
Reasons Why It's Dumb: It's really not that fun watching someone play a 3D game when you don't have glasses, no matter how excited they seem
I've got to hand it to Jimmy Fallon; of all the talk show hosts, he seems to be the one routinely giving video games their proper dues. Hosting a special week dedicated entirely to video games, you can't say that he doesn't give them a fair shake. We've seen plenty of awesome demos on the show since he started doing them back in 2010, but Killzone 3 was not one of his finest.
Ignoring his bad aiming, the obvious god mode, and the surface level investigation of the game, the real reason why this segment is so forehead-slappingly dumb is because half of it is played using the stereoscopic 3D mode which nobody in the audience (home or studio) can see because they're not wearing the special glasses. All we've got to go on is Jimmy's constant shouting about how cool it looks. I guess we'll just have to take his word for it.
