Deferred Germination

I meant to post this last week, but have been absurdly busy and it slipped. It's now woefully outdated, but I'm posting it anyway.

Scott and Jorge discussed my games as TV post on episode #47 of their plenteous podcast. As a bonus, they have Justin Keverne as a guest (but they loved me first dammit, they loved me first!).

The conversation drifted a bit too much toward episodic games, which often gets conflated on the rare occasions when people talk about games through the lens of TV. My post didn't do a particularly good job of separating these issues either though. That's instructive for the future. Next go, it will be "Games are like having a season of a TV show on DVD." That doesn't flow nearly as well though, eh?

It's still a great conversation, especially Justin calling out The Cradle from Thief: Deadly Shadows as the best format breaker in a game ever. And he's totally right.

Give it a listen, it probably won't rot your brain.
