    GI Show - The Great Games Of The Decade Debate

    GI Show - The Great Games Of The Decade Debate

    Welcome to 2019's last Game Informer Show! With the 2020's rapidly approaching, Leo Vader, Joe Jubba, Ben Reeves, Jeff Cork, and I took it upon ourselves to examine the Game Informer Game of the Year from each of the last 10 years and discuss whether or not we agree with the pick. Was Mass Effect 2 the best game of 2010? Why does the panel lean Red Dead Redemption 2 over God of War? Is Titanfall 2 the greatest piece of fiction ever gifted to humankind? Stay tuned until the end of the show to also see the exclusive reveal of our 2019 Game of the Year!

    GI Show - Apple Arcade Revisit, Community Emails, GotY Chat Part 6, and an Interview With Dontnod

    On this week's episode of The Game Informer Show podcast, we go around the video game world and back again. The show starts with Matt Miller and Leo Vader as we discuss our time spent in Apple Arcade. From new gems to old favorites, we put perspective on the service now that we have been using it a few months. Alex Stadnik is this week's super producer.

    Next,  Joe Juba, Brian Shea, Ben Reeves, and Alex Stadnik all join me to discuss the results of our competition to predict who will take home the win at The Game Awards that happened last week. Let's just say there is a lot to discuss. And victory here might make you the smartest person in the world.

    In the next segment, Ben Reeves, Joe Juba, and Dan Tack join me for community emails where we do the unthinkable: We rate the Mona Lisa. 

    Then we have the sixth and final installment of our Game of the Year chats, where I ask guests what games are defining their year. I am joined by Ben Reeves, Matt Miller, and Dan Tack as we try to get in some last-minute discussions. Check the list below for all the games we covered over the last few weeks. Find those podcasts on your favorite service!

    And finally, Joe Juba interviews Michel Koch, Jean-Luc Cano, and Raoul Barbet from Dontnod Entertainment. They are some of the minds behind Life is Strange 2, which recently saw its successful conclusion. Joe has a spoiler-filled chat with the team about the process of making the game, so fans who have already finished Life is Strange 2 should definitely tune in.

Customer Reviews

YourVader ,

Real good

I thought I'd write a review to say that I appreciate the time stamps. It's a little thing but it helps a lot when I don't want to hear about games on a console I don't own like the 3DS and Wii U.
