Game Designer Knowledge

Recently got into World of Warcraft and it’s been great hearing these two talk about the game that started WoW and everything surrounding it’s initial launch. Great Podcast. GG

my favorite insight

instead of a normal review, i’ll post my favorite insight from this podcast (so far).

in the pokémon red and blue episodes, the hosts mentioned that jrpgs of the time had the inherent problem of wanting to reward exploration, but discouraging it with random battles; and that pokémon solved this issue by turning random battles into a gatcha-like slot machine where the enemies are the prizes.

overall i find these podcasts much more insightful than many youtube “video essays,” polygon articles, the few books i’ve read, and other well-regarded media on game design.

episodes on nintendo games tend to be the best, probably because they don’t know them that well and can notice design decisions which i take for granted as i played them all ten years ago.

Best game podcast!!

Absolutely love this podcast! Both game developers are excellent and have amazing insights on each game they deep dive into. So glad they finally did Deus Ex which I listened to on a long flight. Please keep doing this incredible show and thank you for your time and expertise!!!!
Would love to hear the hosts take on bards tale remastered trilogy, Prey, and System Shock 2.
