The Classic Game of The Week is a segment of Orange Lounge Radio. It replaced the segment Website of The Week on October 7th, 2007 (Show #250). Each week DarkSakura selects a game for a classic system and goes into detail about what made this game memorable, and why you should check it out. A classic game has to be ten years or older.

Previous Classic Game of the Week selections included Sega's OutRun, Virtual On: Cyber Troopers, and Gunstar Heroes, as well as Konami's Dracula X: Rondo of Blood for the PC Engine.

Debuting in 2017, was a new twist to the long-running segment with the Classic Console of the Month! One week every month DarkSakura details a classic console you may or may not have heard of.

The music played in the beginning of the segment is Candy by Warujiennu from Oha Sta! Dance Dance Revolution.
