Podcast – 101 Video Games That Made My Life Slightly Better

Lewis Packwood and Ian Pope

101 Video Games That Made My Life Slightly Better sprang forth from a pub conversation about how dull most ‘Best Games of All Time’ lists are, and has since evolved into a sprawling multimedia leviathan. Listen to us bang on about old (and sometimes new) games that made us smile, interspersed with the occasional serious look at gaming trends. Although when I say 'serious', I generally mean 'po-faced'. To catch up with the current list of games, go to http://101videogames.wordpress.com/.
