Doesn’t follow its own premise

The premise of the show was to be a sister show to the excellent “How Did This Get Made?” podcast about bad movies.
They’re slogan is that they play “the worst and weirdest” video games. However the hosts decided they didn’t want to play bad games, so they decided to twist their slogan and tear it like it said “worst AND weirdest”. And so, they began to play weird games too.
But then things got out of control, and they decided to just cover whatever good AAA game is coming out that they’re into.
So what do we have? We have a show structured around reviewing bad games, that is instead reviewing good games.

So the first segment where they limit themselves to 70 seconds of talking about good games is pointless, bc all they do is talk about good games.

And the segment called “Maybe We’re Wrong” where they read positive reviews of bad games is just... them reading bad reviews of good games. It’s terrible.

I hate to say it, but whoever funded this podcast into existence really needs to start laying down the law and make these guys either re-commit to the premise of the podcast or find new hosts that can actually be funny. Jesus Christ

Question for mailbag

Does everyone else also just mash the hell out all the buttons on your controller during load screens due to impatience?? I’ve always been such an ADD kid and can never help myself
