Moving Pixels Podcast

Game of the Year Edition

by G. Christopher Williams

9 January 2012

The Moving Pixels podcast discusses not just our own picks for game of the year, but what significance (or lack thereof) such declarations about our most beloved games have.

This week Nick Dinicola and I are joined by our fellow blogger Mattie Brice to discuss, in part, the games of the year.

However, with PopMatters posting a forthcoming list of the best games of the year, we discuss more specifically that list, our writers’ tastes here at PopMatters, and also what Game of the Year might mean in general to gaming.

This podcast is also available via iTunes.
