real games journo

Gen z gamers should avoid this podcast - there is no gender baiting, no race baiting, no whining about devs crunching then whining about delayed releases, and no extended mental health diatribes. Ryan is one of the last standing true games journalists, and interviews with professional focus and courtesy. Im just terrified that he, and others like Greg Miller will one day pass the buck to the purple hair brigade…and then it’s game over for us who love talking games as much as playing them.

The Pinnacle of video game journalism

Ryan will be far too humble to admit this but he is the best. Yes Jason S from Kotaku is exceptional but Ryan Mcaffrey is without a doubt the most genuine and passionate journalist in gaming. He loves Xbox and all things gaming related. This passion is clear. His dedication unquestioned. I will always be one of your top fans Ryan. Gamer tag: Chevaro (all platforms)

Great

I love Video Games, and I love talking about them. This series gives me the opportunity to hear the stories, trials and tribulations of the games and game series I know and love by the legendary creators themselves by someone who loves them just as much as me. Great stuff.
