Smartest Video Game Podcast

I love these guys! They have a special way of talking about video games in ways that I wouldn’t be able to make the connections myself.

Highly recommend listening to

Super Mario Bros 3
Chrono Trigger
Sonic Mania
Undertale
Earthbound

Also, their OP song is like, the anthem of gamers.

One of my favorite podcasts. Full stop.

I remember where I was the day I found Nostalgia Goggles. It was a snow day (I teach) and I had just discovered that Dave Chappelle's second Netflix special had dropped. I obviously watched that immediately, but then opened my podcast app to turn on one of my regulars to clean the house. I saw an ad for this and the rest is history.

I've listened to every episode, a couple twice. You guys were the only ones I trusted to talk about the FF7 remake (I don't have PS4 yet, but let your recommendation, and .... Nostalgia, in buying one soon just to play it). You give thoughtful analysis that has impacted how I play all my old games.

All of this is true ;)

If you enjoy classic video games, check these guys out.

Ah, the old days.....

Remember G4? The video channel that always had a ton of shows with likable enough personalities that talked about the things you like in video games, nerd culture, and irrelevant comedy. Well, remember how it doesn’t exist anymore and the closest thing you can find nowadays is youtubers with half of them trying to shove another mobile game down your gullet when all you want is somebody to talk with about video games? Remember how it used to feel when you would talk to your buddies in middle school about your favorite games? I bet you remember some of those conversations, and in stark contrast I guarantee you that you don’t remember the words from the last published “expert’s” review and it’s because you don’t care about the latest CPU or the latest graphics processor. You just care that a game is fun. Well my friends, this podcast is the answer to all of your nostalgic and newstalgic needs. Have fun reminiscing in old systems and outdated, yet fondly remembered mechanics and soundtracks and discover new games with that old school charm. Best of all? These hosts are not experts! Now, I should clarify. They are not experts on electronics and memory allocation, but they are experts of conversation and making you feel as though your listening to those old middle school conversations again. If you’re like me and are now a “professional” adult and sometimes you wish that either you could feel that nostalgic time once more, or you’d like to be introduced to a multitude of games for you to try that maybe you’ve missed out on (because you were on the right side of the console wars), come and listen to what you’ve been missing. 5/5 would listen again.
