So I’m still listening to the Giant Bomb GOTY podcast and, for the second hour in a row, 2 people are arguing about Dream Daddy.

Christ…


#142

Not selling Giant Bomb to me in these threads u guys


#143

I hadn’t played or even heard of the first two Witcher games and I loved Witcher 3.


#144

Great website. Great bunch of folk. Good community.

AWFUL GOTY podcasts this year.


#145

I thought I told you to stop!


#146

You can easily play W3 without having played the other two. They’re all self-contained games.

I think W1 and 2 have things to recommend them, and you’ll miss character development, but the last one is far and away the best of the lot and tbh it’s so fucking big I wouldn’t recommend turning Everest into a trip around Nepal anyway.


#147

Good advice.

I’ll take a crack at Everest and if I make it back down alive I’ll think about the rest of Nepal some other time.


#148

Yeah, this. Good podcast and usually their GOTY shows are an annual highlight. Too many people this year and it’s a bit of a mess…


#149

I don’t know why, but I need to see what they make number one. Currently, only one person wants Zelda, AKA the best game ever, in the top 5. THEY’VE LOST THEIR MINDS.


#150

personally have downgraded Zelda to maybe in my top 20 of all time as the dust has settled. There’s no doubt it was an amazing time though


#151

The Witcher 3. No u don’t have to have played any others. Yes it’s the best game on ps4


#152

also think I’m getting a bit tired of the arbitrary choices they make, the sour grapes and the meme-y in-jokes, seems especially cringey since they are mostly in their late 30s. Would much rather they talked positively and sensibly about the games they love.


#153

Oh, is the story worth paying attention to? I skipped all the cutscenes.


#154

You’ve got to be joking


#155

i’ve never added anyone on steam before. how exciting!

#156

Yeah, I really enjoyed the Computer Game Show and BitSocket GOTY shows best. Groups of people just openly declaring their love for a bunch of games, though in TCGShow’s case with a sprinkling of double crossing and arguing.


#157

I legit thought Dan Ryckert was the only one who chose his spots well and didn’t resort to a downward spiral of dismissive arguments. Vinny less so, the rest were pretty unbearable this year.


#158

Mainly just anyone saying “this has to be at the top or I’m leaving” or Jeff’s classic “I don’t like 90% of the games on this list” had me eye-rolling.


#159

Hung out with the bit socket boys a few years back at a consolevania meet. Nice boys. Daft


#160

So much time for that show. Always come back to it and find it varied, insightful and downright hilarious.
