8-Bit Philosophy is a series of youtube videos which explore what amounts to an extensive highlight reel of dead philosophers. Giving a simplified and fast-paced overview of what the specific philosopher is "famous" for, it is a useful tool similar to History of Philosophy Without Any Gaps, but a little less involved. Whereas History of Philosophy is a few hundred episodes in and only just approaching the late middle ages,8-bit Philosophy spans the entire historical swath of philosophy... with some gaps, of course.
The name, "8-bit Philosophy", describes the style, pretty well. Using popular Nes games as the backdrop for amusing dialogue and depiction of the concepts being described. The nostalgia factor more than makes up for the superficiality of the exploration of philosopher's ideas.
Also, some videos tend to speak of philosopher's ideas in a manner which makes them sound as objective truth while other videos make it a point to say "According to so-and-so, it is likely that..." it is hard not to notice that there is a certain trend in which videos are produced in which way.
