A Singular Pleasure

As someone who lives a mundane life, I enjoy video games for their unique ability to transport me to another realm. That is one of the reasons I appreciate this podcast; whenever I listen to the insightful, incisive, borderline brilliant dialogue between Jack, Daniel, and Jeremy, I am transported to a well-lit studio complete with microphones and Jack, Daniel, and Jeremy.

These men are among the most intelligent in video games today. Should you decide to listen to their podcast, you will join their small but devoted legion of followers who revel in the trio's impressive knowledge and nonchalant banter. You will laugh and you will learn; you will cry, yes, but you will grow as well.

Years later, when all is said and done, when you lie on your deathbed calculating your wasted hours, wondering if your success hinged on a few more Saturdays spent hunched in an office overlooking the New York City skyline, asking yourself about your failed marriage and the reasons everything disintegrated like toilet paper in the toilet, you will not regret your time with The Best Games Period.


Great show

I followed these three from their previous podcast, and I think this new format is even better. The guys all have different personalities, different play experience, and different tastes, and they work so well together (they've been running podcasts for years). They do their research, give all of the games a fair shot, and have really good discussions. Highly entertaining as well. I highly recommend, not only for some entertaining discussions, but also for some good insights into games, developers, and the industry as a whole. Good work, gentlemen.


Just listened to the FFIX podcast, loved it. Thank you for delving into the themes of this game and all of the existential crisis each of the characters go through. If there were a vote for favorite Final Fantasy character it would be 1. Vivi 2. Ramza 3. Sabin.
