    On this week's episode of The Game Informer Show, we create a monster for the 500th episode.  Host Andy McNamara and producer Alex Stadnik are joined by the show's hosts from throughout the years. Matt Helgeson, Tim Turi, and Ben Hanson all make appearances to catch up and reminisce about the show. Next up, we have a murderer's row of GI editors join us to talk about the show and what games are filling their backlog. Here is a giant list to get you excited: Leo Vader, Dan "The Jacket" Tack, Andy Reiner, Matt Kato, Ben Reeves, Matt Miller, Joe Juba, and Jeff Cork (Kim Wallace and Brian Shea couldn't join us, but they are here in spirit).


    Joe Juba and Jeff Cork go the extra mile and stay to answer the always-entertaining and enlightening community emails (in which I confuse my PSP and Vita references in some of my AndyMc story moments, so please know I was wrong and you are free to mock me openly and often).


    It is important to note that this episode doesn't happen without your support, all the amazing talent in the game industry that has appeared on the show, and of course, all the Game Informer family over the decades. This episode is dedicated to you.

I am informed

I had my doubts when Andy took over the hosting duties, but this show has really taken off and now Andy strikes me as a “Conan O’Brian” style host. Good energy and one of the best places to get ,politics free, games news. Always played right away when a new show drops. Thank you GI

HWMWH ,

Here’s to 500+ more

To Andy and the gang, congratulations on the huge milestone!

In a world where variety is boundless this show made it to 500. To me, as a listener and long time fan of the show, that speaks volumes.

Why the five stars?
1. The GI Show Group always injects a good amount of humor and different viewpoints regarding a wide variety of topics that it’s my go to for weekly talk radio.

2. The quality and effort that this group puts in to the show has never waned. That’s big. Interests change. Guests stop making appearances. The list goes on and on to what could impact the production quality of a show. But GIS hasn’t stopped growing and evolving. PS you guys did a WAY better job transitioning to remote work than your neighbors *cough* IGN *cough*

3. Info and everything presented on the show is relevant. Period. The discussion topics are always the most up to date. I rarely read something that I haven’t already heard on the show.

If you like games, tech, movies, anime, superheroes, or [insert any other nerd topic I missed] this is a definite show to add to your lineup.

GIS - thank you for an amazing show.

Seafood boii ,

BEN!!!!!

It makes me feel so happy that they put Ben Hanson back in the 500th episode and let’s pray that Ben Hanson stays again
