Synopsis: November 5th, 1994. Cybermania '94: The Ultimate Gamer Awards was an attempt by the Academy of Interactive Arts and Sciences to create a video game awards ceremony. That's the nicest thing I can say about it. Rocking the world with nineties culture, Cybermania was a failed infomercial for the Western development of full-motion video games, an infomercial which marginalized the superior Japanese game development. By 1995, the Sega CD, 3DO, and Phillips CD-i were all dead, soon to be replaced by the Sony PlayStation that would destroy everything in its path, a system that would win audiences with bigger versions of tried-and-true game templates. It's painful enough to watch Western game developers go all-in with their crappy development philosophy, but when you think Cybermania can't get any worse, legendary actor and co-host Leslie Nielsen becomes the center prop for awful comedy routines. When Nielsen has to "go turn his car alarm off" and stumbles into a shootout at Universal Studios' Wild West Gun Show, you'll understand. This is Cybermania '94.

A couple of notes here: This video was lifted from a VHS tape of the rebroadcast that occurred roughly two hours after the original airing. Also, due to the number of video game commercials, I've kept the commercials in place. This should make navigation of the timestamps in the accompanying article a little bit easier. And obviously, they're awesome. That's all you need to know. Let the show commence! Leslie Nielsen never deserved this shabby treatment.
