Welcome to Classic Game Room – publisher of history, art, gaming, comic books, manga, coloring books, and more. Classic Game Room started as the original Internet video game review show that evolved into a publishing house & clothing design company.
Created by Mark Bussler, CGR is the first Internet video game review show. Classic Game Room started life in 1999 and ran until the year 2000 when it disappeared for nearly a decade (in that time Mark produced documentary films.) A new series called Classic Game Room HD launched on YouTube in 2008. CGR ran until early 2018 when it was replaced by Classic Game Room 2085 on Amazon and Vimeo. In 2019, Classic Game Room Internet video game review production ceased.
After numerous struggles with video distribution via YouTube and Amazon, combined with relatively poor viewership and content theft, Mark was no longer able to devote the time into Classic Game Room and chose to instead focus on publishing, drawing, art and design. Classic Game Room Publishing currently publishes more than 100 print and digital books, 2000 clothing, wall-art and kitchen products, documentary films, and much of the Classic Game Room catalog on physical media. If you have questions on where to find a product please Contact Us.
Mark currently works full-time in publishing, design, and manga / comic book creation. He is releasing four series for 2nd-half 2019 including Ethel the Cyborg Ninja, Omega Ronin, Heyzoos the Coked-Up Chicken, and Magnum Skywolf. Mark is an avid runner, science fiction junkie, comic book enthusiast and beer snob to the max.
A 20th-Anniversary Special for Classic Game Room may be in the works for physical media release.
CGR Supreme Series 2 (Volumes 7-12) is in production! Those who want to own physical copies of their favorite Classic Game Room releases can rejoice! Late 2019 release date TBD. Episode list TBD.
