Smartest Criticism

Love the pod. Probably the most elevated discussion of video games out there. A little Star Wars fanboyish, but all is forgiven. Can’t recommend highly enough, especially if you love games and feel like half of all AAA game reviews were written by a PR department.

Thoughtful commentary but no care to check facts

While these guys have some interesting thoughts on games and movies, they consistently fail to research or recall basic facts about plots/pronunciation of names, creating an overall frustrating experience

Update: Updating score as I do enjoy listening to these guys despite my criticism, may have been harsh on the score.

And there are absolutely Abstergo references in AC:Origins, for the record.

Actual journalism for a maligned art

Excellent hosts who are funny and (mostly) mature. This is how you can find the cream of the crop of video games, whether for artistic merit or just good old-fashioned fun. Also good about bringing in diverse game developer, designer, and journalist experts from female, minority, and gay voices.
