Today we welcome back Devin Faraci, Badass in Chief at Badass Digest, to chow down a bit more on the big issue of narrative in gaming. What makes a game a game? Can video games fully master cultural relevance when you have to devote so much time to them? If you don’t devote the time to them and just experience the story, are you a gamer? We don’t really answer any of these questions, but we do talk about them a lot. Listen and then tell us what you think!
*For the unaware, Jumbo’s Clown Room is a very famous, very seedy LA strip club. That will make the episode make more sense. (How many times can a reference to a strip club clarify a video game podcast?)
