  1. Edmund McMillen's The Binding of Isaac helped jump start the mainstreaming of roguelike elements in indie games that we have been seeing trickle into the AAA industry over the last few years. Mixing top-down shooting with the dungeon exploration of a classic The Legend of Zelda title, The Binding of Isaac plays pitch perfectly for what it's designed to be. The randomized elements fit together seamlessly for a gameplay experience that's never the same twice in a row. Over all of that, McMillen paints the story of Isaac, a small boy in a scary world full of horrible monsters (that still manage to seem friendly and charming despite being, you know, monsters). Should this 2011 indie hit be considered one of the best games of all-time? 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. Outro music: The Binding of Isaac 'The Clubbing of Isaac' by Big Giant Circles (http://ocremix.org/remix/OCR02302) You can download or listen to the podcast over on Soundcloud, our hosting site, and iTunes. A YouTube version is available, as well!

    The Best Games Period - Episode 30 - Gone Home

    Amidst the blockbuster games of 2013 like BioShock Infinite and The Last of Us, a little game from an unknown indie studio almost single-handedly established a genre. The Fullbright Company's Gone Home was met with critical acclaim, commercial success, and spawned fairly divisive opinions in the general audience. The hosts of the show actually discussed Gone Home when it came out on their previous podcast and revisiting it proved to be an enlightening experience. Do you think Gone Home is one of the best games period?

  5. With schedules being what they are, sometimes coordinating a full episode of The Best Games Period can be difficult. When we can't have a proper discussion, we will be breaking off to do these shorter mini-casts, Honorable Mentions, to talk about fringe games that we might not otherwise be able to talk about on a full episode. This week Daniel helms an episode of Honorable Mention with an impassioned plea for people to appreciate the N64 cult classic Turok: Dinosaur Hunter. Innovating the FPS on consoles, embracing the limitations of the hardware, and diving head first into the silliness of its central concept, the original Turok could have been the springboard for a larger franchise. While that dream of dinosaur slaying was never realized in subsequent installments, the Dinosaur Hunter's first steps were magical for Daniel Jones.

  7. Since Naughty Dog recently released the fourth Uncharted game, we took the opportunity to talk about the 2007 Uncharted: Drake's Fortune. As the title that resurrected the third-person shooter for the modern age and proved to the world what the PlayStation 3 was capable of rendering on-screen, is Nathan Drake's initial adventure one of the best games period?

  9. 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.
