The year of 2016 is officially behind us now, and for whatever else you could say about all the crazy things that happened over the year, you can definitely say that 2016 was a year in which some video games were made. In this episode, we talk about some of those games that stood out to us.
Unfortunately, partway through, Chris had to leave; apparently he has some real life friends that came over, though I remain suspicious. Just in case you were wondering why he just stops talking halfway through.

The Best of 2016
My picks for what was important, awesome, or worth talking about in 2016.
Good to be the King?
Which would you rather be: A king in the middle ages, or a lower-income laborer in the 21st century?
If Star Wars Was Made in 2006?
Imagine if the original Star Wars hadn't appeared in the 1970's, but instead was pitched to studios in 2006. How would that turn out?
The Biggest Game Ever
Just how big IS No Man's Sky? What if you made a map of all of its landmass? How big would it be?
Game at the Bottom
Why spend millions on visuals that are just a distraction from the REAL game of hotbar-watching?
