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!

Best of the best

I’m a new listener and I am actually starting from episode 1 in the year 2020, that’s how much am enjoying the podcast. Top 3 songs from a video game? Mine are sheik’s theme from ocarina of time. Tristram from Diablo 1 and the title screen from mega man 2. Funny stuff please keep it up!

Casual, but informed game discussion.

Great podcast with a casual feel talking about classic gaming on both console and pc. Not overly specialized and good guests.
