Headrush is considered one of the "b a s t a r d children" alongside The Lost Gold in the YDKJ series. The primary audience for this game is aiming for teenagers back in the 90's, which contains some educational questions (like Vitamin A, elements and fish eggs) mixed in with pop culture references (like South Park, Buffy, Hanson) alongside with the classic YDKJ humor we've seen over the past 18 years. Many questions are too easy to awnser, so you could breeze through an entire game within 7 minutes. Bob, the host, in my opinion is a good host, but not as funny as Cookie and hell of a lot better than Schmitty from The Lost Gold. The question transitions are pretty entertaining to watch, with the animation resembling the work of John K (creator of Ren and Stimpy) and other styles like anime. This is the trivia game that represents a staple of the late 90's and it has an undeniable charm to it. Not the best in the series, but no matter what, I recommend Headrush to test your knowledge of 90's pop culture.
