The Best Games Period - Episode 34 - Grand Theft Auto: Vice City (ft. Emily Reese)


Jack Gardner

The wonderful Emily Reese, from the lovely Level with Emily Reese podcast, joins the show this week to discuss the only Grand Theft Auto title that captures the spirit of the 1980s complete with neon lights, drugs, and crazy fashion. Equal parts homage and satirical jab, Vice City spurred a flurry of lawsuits, accusations of inciting genocide, and might be the best Grand Theft Auto game to date. 

 

You can find Emily Reese on Twitter, @LevelwithEmily, or on her weekly podcast Level with Emily Reese.

 

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, and 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 everyone who listens will find the show entertaining and informative.

That was a fun podcast with Emily Reese! I never played through the storyline of Vice City, but I did make tens of thousands of dollars in taxi quests on my brother's save game... and occassionally put in some cheat codes, blow up a bunch of stuff,  and shoot a bunch of people... and launch cars off of ramps and mountains. Good times...
