Matt, I can give you my Pokemon stories. One involves the Gamestop in Oak Park Mall and the other the former Battlezone that was across the street, so you can totally relate to them. Then you can dazzle the crowd.
When I started, I asked folks to pick a game in advance. But considering how long the list is, there’s really no need to commit to a particular game so far in advance. So it’s basically up to whatever folks choose in the final week or so before we record.
I was hoping to talk about “musical instrument games” when my turn came up. Perhaps you could do your first multi-person podcast on this subject, since I know there are several people here who are extremely passionate about the genre.
Mordrak also suggested a multi-guest podcast, but then he mysteriously deleted his post. What are you hiding, Mord?!?!?? It’s worth considering, but three-person dynamics can be a bit trickier when it’s people who aren’t used to recording with each other. I also like the interviewing aspect of just being 1-on-1. I’ll keep it in mind, but one of the good things about music games is that there are plenty of them to serve as a starting point for anyone who wants to talk about them.
Plus, I’ve come to believe they aren’t technically “games”.
