  1. This week we tackle our first multiplayer-only and first free-to-play title, Valve's Team Fortress 2. The online FPS has been around for almost a decade and still sees an incredibly active community, due in no small part to the decision to make it free-to-play in 2011. Graciously joining us in our discussion this week is Jack Packard, former Funny or Die funnyman, Red Letter Media staple, and co-host of the YouTube channel Previously Recorded. 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. Since we had such a great time recording this episode and Jack was so up for genuine conversation, we recorded more than we bargained for and it seemed easier to break it up into two parts for listening convenience. In part one, we all take our sweet time to get to anything related to Team Fortress 2, instead discussing Jack's twisting career path, Dark Souls 3, Stardew Valley, and the life of an internet creator. Maybe we were having a good time or maybe we were mirroring the 9 year development process that Team Fortress 2 went through. Who can say? Outro music: Double Dragon III: Sacred Stones 'Trouble in Japan' by Nostalvania (http://ocremix.org/remix/OCR03307) Rimshot sound effect "rimshot" uploaded by Archive.org user Gotta_Laff under Creative Commons 3.0 copyright (https://archive.org/details/rimshot_739) Part 2 centers almost entirely on Team Fortress 2. The aesthetic, comedy, emergent narratives, and even the cross marketing. Have you ever wondered if a conga line can ruin a video game? Jack Packard's argument certainly might make you think differently about the seemingly innocuous party dance. Outro music: Tiny Barbarian DX 'Vators Gonna Bait' by Hylian Lemon (http://ocremix.org/remix/OCR03298) You can download or listen to the podcast over on Soundcloud, our hosting site, and iTunes. A YouTube version is (sometimes) available as well, so you can watch what we are talking about while we talk about it! You can also follow the show on Twitter: @BestGamesPeriod You can find the dashing Jack Packard on Twitter: @Harlack as well as on episodes or streams of Previously Recorded and sometimes over on Red Letter Media. New episodes of The Best Games Period will be released every Monday

  3. This week voice actress, cosplayer, and Australian wrestling commissioner, Elizabeth DeLoria, joins us to take a hard look at Fallout 3. Released on PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3, Fallout 3 was hailed as an incredible milestone for the video game industry. It was one of the most expansive and lovingly rendered open-worlds of the time. Despite a myriad of glitches, Bethesda's 2008 open-world RPG managed to establish an iconic look and feel that many have used as a benchmark for RPGs in the years since. Does the Capital Wasteland's world, story, and soundtrack hold up eight years later?

  5. The remake/re-imagining of Insomniac Games' 2002 PlayStation 2 platformer Ratchet & Clank will be releasing tomorrow with a movie on its heels later this month. What better way to commemorate those releases than to talk about the game that inspired it all? The 2002 Ratchet & Clank released at a pivotal time for the platforming genre and helped bridge the gap between early 3D platforming and more modern ideas of what platforming could be. Does that make Ratchet & Clank one of the best games period?

  7. This week we return to From Software and Hidetaka Miyazaki to cover the beginnings of the Soul series. The 2009 release of Demon's Souls became the sleeper hit of the year, racking up awards for its gameplay innovations and solid, challenging mechanics. Despite a mixed to positive critical reception, Demon's Souls remained mostly overlooked until From Software's spiritual successor, Dark Souls. The popularity of Dark Souls had the effect of more than doubling Demon's Souls' sales. Can Demon's Souls stand on its own as one of the best games period or is it doomed to remain in the shadow of its sequel for all time?

  9. Singularity, the 2010 first-person shooter from developer Raven Software, hit consoles at a bit of an awkward time. Coming a couple years after BioShock had rocked the gaming industry and become firmly established as a bar against which all atmospheric FPS games would be judged, many wrote Singularity off as a copycat. However, to this day there remains a sizable number of Singularity defenders who adore the time warping mechanics and dark, twisting storyline that embraces a murkier morality.

  11. This week the wild bunch reunites to dive into the wild, wild west for a look at the good, the bad, and the ugly of Rockstar Games' 2010 high noon classic Red Dead Redemption. The searchers make some surprising discoveries about whether the open range western should be considered one of the best games period or remain unforgiven. Look, I really like westerns, okay?

  13. We had our first official guest on the show this week, UI designer and FarCry superfan/Pagan Min lookalike Erik Scott! Erik nominated Resident Evil 4 for its importance, for good and bad, to the survival horror genre. Join us (minus Daniel, who was out sick) as we discuss Leon Kennedy's one-liners, fish suitcases, and the rise of Quick Time Events. It should be noted that we encountered a number of technical difficulties while recording the show, so if you notice any odd sound changes or abrupt transitions, that's due to there being multiple recording sessions stitched together.

  15. For our fifteenth episode, we thought we would do something a little different and tackle two of Valve's incredible games at once. Made several years apart by completely different teams while using the same, iconic gameplay mechanic, which is the better masterpiece: Portal or Portal 2? We devote our first versus episode to this argument for the ages.

  17. I had the pleasure recently of sitting down with documentary filmmakers David Osit and Malika Zouhali-Worrall to talk about Thank You for Playing, a film about the Green family and their struggle to make a game (That Dragon, Cancer) about their terminally ill son, Joel, while also caring for him as his condition worsens. It's a powerful, moving piece of film making. Right now Osit and Zouhali-Worrall are in the final hours of a Kickstarter campaign to fund national distribution of their film. Earlier this week, I published the written version of the interview. However, that thing is a massive bit of writing, so I asked David and Malika if it would be alright to publish the audio of our talk and they have graciously allowed me to put it out into the world for your listening pleasure.

  19. After returning from Extra Life United running a fever of 102, Jack had to sit out the recording session of Episode 14. Being the troopers that they are, Jeremy and Daniel recorded an episode on 2008's PlayStation exclusive LittleBigPlanet as well as a casual discussion on the state of gaming in general. While it deviates a bit from the show's norm, it's a fun listen!

Being the troopers that they are, Jeremy and Daniel recorded an episode on 2008's PlayStation exclusive LittleBigPlanet as well as a casual discussion on the state of gaming in general. While it deviates a bit from the show's norm, it's a fun listen! 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. You can download or listen to the podcast over on Soundcloud, our hosting site, and iTunes. A YouTube version is (sometimes) available as well, so you can watch what we are talking about while we talk about it!

  21. There was very little debate about whether we would talk about Super Mario Bros. 3 on this podcast. It was only a matter of time until we tackled one of the first console blockbuster titles. Did you know that Super Mario Bros. 3 inadvertently spawned Id Software, the creators of Doom? Is there a hidden artistic message? What exactly makes the legendary NES platformer so legendary? The three hosts go over this and a whole lot more while discussing whether or not it is one of the best games period.

  23. Despite losing Jack to a case of crippling mouth pain, Jeremy and Daniel soldier on through episode eleven to talk about Insomniac Games' finale to the Resistance trilogy. Though it released to mixed reviews and some heated opinions regarding its box art, Resistance 3 has managed to stand out in the minds of a significant number of its players in the years since. With Insomniac returning to Ratchet and Clank soon, maybe their PlayStation 3 title deserves a second look. Does the divisive ending to their gritty alternate history shooter have what it takes to be one of the best games period?

  25. For our tenth episode we cover the twelfth main entry in the Final Fantasy series. Though initially releasing to some of the best reviews of any Final Fantasy title, time has solidified XII's status as the black sheep of the series. Does its groundbreaking visuals, real-time battle system, and risky shake up of the Final Fantasy formula earn it a place as one of the best games period?
