Each episode, we discuss at least one classic game each, looking at them from a modern perspective but also remembering where they stand in the evolution of game development. Sometimes they're games we played and loved growing up. Sometimes they're games we missed and are experiencing for the first time. Though we each have our core beloved genres, we all play a variety of games of various styles, eras, and platforms.

Interesting selection

Not terrible. This is a good cast to hear about some random games. The hosts are mostly relatable, seem like good dudes. Definitely fun if you participate with the lists and game of the quarter. Only major complaint, it does often drag on. They read every email and provide narrative on each, and it’s just too much. The first hour of the show is pert great; if you shut it off there you would not miss much. I wish they’d keep the email portion around an hour as opposed to the two hour plus segment it often drudges into. If you like classic games and sharing experiences with them, def give it a listen!

So disrespectful to listener

Ew! Someone was eating right into the microphone so gross nobody wants to hear that. I was so excited to find a podcast about one of my favorite subjects. Was disappointed I had to turn it off because of the awful noises.

Great and girthy

Very much enjoy hearing these guys go through classic games each episode! Lots of knowledge, positive vibes, and good times. Highly recommended for retro gaming nerds! The episodes are every few weeks but long enough to give you something to chew on while you wait for the next.
