The portrait of human emotions via the prism of games. One of the great podcast of our time. Bravo!!!

Thank you, Scott.

Scott C Jones has created a podcast that goes deep below the surface value of video games and shows us how the medium can be used as a conduit for growth, healing and strength. Each episode tells a story that exemplifies how each of us has a story to tell and a game to play.
The best video game podcast there is.

An amazing perspective

Heavily Pixelated season 1 has come to en end, and it has been one of the most enjoyable series I have listened to in a very long time. I highly suggest listening to every episode. You will feel genuinely connected to each guest as Scott so wonderfully interviews and speaks with each one. They wonderfully share personal experiences and how specific games helped them overcome those dark times. The last three episodes are a mixture of emotions as Scott describes a life-changing experience from his own life and how a certain game helped him overcome one of the most difficult challenges anyone can imagine. I am so grateful for this podcast and all of the wonderful guests who have participated thus far. I have learned something to appreciate from each episode and I cannot wait for season 2. I feel like I have a story I would like to share, but I still do not have the courage to do it yet. Perhaps one day. Perhaps I can continue to gather courage from these wonderful guests and Scott. Love this work! Listen to it - you won't regret it!

This is one of the best podcasts a listener can ask for... The show is wonderfully designed and entertaining. There is a near-instant connection that is made between the listener and the host — real experiences taken and molded to help us in our daily lives appreciate the gift of games and how they can help us overcome tough situations. Every episode is refreshing and enlightening, especially Ep. 5 — you really and truly gain an appreciation for how much games can help you through tough times.
And if you’re not a gamer, fret not. As a hobbyist, you can still listen and you will be able to connect because you understand that doing something you enjoy can truly help you overcome the toughest of times. I love the show, and if anyone reads this I hope you give it a chance because you won’t regret it!
