so In both cases, after the initial game ran out of the instance stored in RAM it basically crashed.

ok? I’m not sure what anybody thought would happen different And why visual proof needed to exist to verify the obvious.

I mean you just need a small ammount of knowledge of how things work to know that it would get stuck the console.

If you expected that the games could combine and get a third different game or mix with the reality and suck you to the tv you have watched too much cartoons. (or played too much Sonic and Knuckless)

Leaving the game running like that seems like a sure-fire way to break the console.

Back in the day, when I still played the GTA 3D era games on my PS2, I wanted to play as Tommy Vercetti in Liberty City and Claude in Vice City. I still want to play a game like that where all of the cities are combined, almost like a remake of the original GTA but without load times and long stretches of roads in between Liberty City, Vice City and San Andreas (Los Santos, San Fierro, Las Venturas).

Even better if you could cycle between the different years, from 1983 (Vice City Stories) to 1995 (Liberty City Stories) and 2001 (GTA III), to see for example how Vice City looked later on.

Actually, there's a mod similar to this (includes Bullworth) though a noticeable issue is how the player character appears shorter than he should in different locations. But just the thought someone even attempted to do it is appreciated.

But, what happens when you put a Virtual Boy cartridge into a toaster though?

This is quite amazing, on the second video you can see that the console tries to render both games at the same time. If you could actually plug the TV cable to a customized hardware demultiplexer, like something implemented with a sixth generation FPGA—those are being used as AI accelerator, they are truly great—, you could probably play both games at the same time.

I think Hobbes uploaded this video.

This PS disc video is his follow up cure for cancer revelation like his Reeee thread where he didn't know employees can have non-compete clauses in their employment letters.
