VGE was produced by Jack Helmuth and Shawn Valine. The main writers were Craig Digregorio (Da Ali G Show) and James Eagan.[citation needed]

Between game reviews the hosts often mocked their sponsor, SoBe, or abused their cheerleader Tiffany Holiday.[3]

The show was produced by the Burly Bear Network (also known as Burly TV), a college television network headed by Lorne Michaels.[1]
