This is a podcast that's nominally about bad games. In reality, it's about the horror of daily life, GameFAQs Gold, strange combatants in the battle of Good vs. Evil, and a singular patriarch known only as Crick. Every Monday, Gary Butterfield and Kole Ross choose a game at random from the titles submitted by listeners, play it, and venture off on a freeform discussion that winds between the topic at hand, and the absurd.

Got me back into games ,

Consistently laughing out loud on the bus

This podcast makes me look like a fool as I stand, lips twisted, shaking on the bus in peals of (sometimes) silent laughter.

Just great.

Morbid fascination at its best

I can’t get through a week without an episode of Abject Suffering! This show is a free-form riot, and I never get past an episode without breaking into tears laughing least once. This is no snobbish takedown of notoriously bad games- it’s more like the joy of binging on the worst fast food in town in order to live to tell the tale.

The entire log of episodes is a really exhaustive but ever-expanding list of the hundreds of the bad or weird games you heard about as a kid or adult, but would not take the time or money to play. Luckily, this is all part of Gary and Kole‘s job.

It’s like comfort food for your ears.

Abject Suffering undoubtedly feels more loose and zoomed out than Watch out for Fireballs or Bonfireside Chat. It’s a definite change of pace, but with a good balance of structured discussion and hilarious banter. If you like the other shows on the network, Gary and Kole don’t disappoint. Who is Zoo Dog???
