Over the last few months, I've been working on a special project with some industry and podcasting veterans and today we're finally ready to reveal what we've been keeping under wraps for so long: The Best Games Period.
Join myself, game critic and sometimes Extra Life contributor Daniel Jones, and podcasting guru Jeremy Brown as we debate, argue, and sometimes agree over the best video games. Together we have nearly a decade of podcasting experience and even more in writing about games. We're confident that The Best Games Period will be one of the most interesting podcasts you'll find on gaming. Period.
Each week we will be tackling a video game, old or new, that at least one of us believes deserves to stand as one of the greatest games of all time. We'll dive into its history, development, gameplay, while trying to argue for or against the game of the week. Sometimes we will be in harmonious agreement, other times we might be fighting a bitter battle to the very end. However each episode shakes out, we hope that the show will be entertaining and informative for everyone who listens.
For our first episode, we decided to discuss Donkey Kong. You can listen to the episode over on Soundcloud, download it from our hosting site Libsyn (the webpage is functional, but still under construction), and (soon) iTunes. You can also watch the YouTube version of the episode which features gameplay from the 1994 Super Nintendo classic. So, what are you waiting for? Load it up and enjoy some laughs, fun facts, and discover some of the best games period.
