Sometimes these things we call videogames just aren’t very good, and by some pretty objective metrics. And yet, we and a lot of other folks still seem to manage to have a great time. How can this be? Join Joseph Martin, Anna Bryniarski, John Rizzi, and Blu Ryder as they attempt to address this question and other topics such as:

  • Those new Pokémon Scarlet and Violet games are pretty rough, huh?
  • How do we reconcile games that have huge flaws yet are still popular?
  • We’re gonna watch The Game Awards on the Discord!
  • Anna gives us her top 5 favorite The Sims 4 lores
  • John has acquired GameCube
  • Blu has played a videogame that they *actually like* !!!
  • Hitmonlee

And much more! Also, be sure to check us out us on Facebook and Twitter, as well as join us on the Discord to be a part of the conversation! Catch our video content Live or Archive on our YouTube!
