These days, most gaming podcasts do the exact same thing. They round up news stories and discuss the biggest releases. This is fine. However, the love we have for gaming is not tied to a specific release schedule. No matter whether you are a dedicated fan of the medium or just a casual user who has limited time to play a few games per year, what matters is that one particular game was your first love. We want to put the focus back on some of our favorite franchises, explore how they changed over the years, and examine why they left a mark on the industry.
Video Gameography is a podcast that’s serialized. We’ll be exploring a different franchise each season and explaining why it is important. In every episode, we’ll examine one game in that series (starting with the first entry), talk about its lore, production history, and the impact it left on those who played it.
There is no shortage of great industry franchises we hope to cover: God of War, Halo, Grand Theft Auto, Doom, The Legend of Zelda, Pokémon, etc. Our first season focuses on Nintendo’s Metroid franchise. You may not know this, but Samus has a distinctive shoulder shape that was created by the Game Boy. Or that she was originally named after the legendary Football/Soccer legend Pele? Metroid Fusion, the only series game that allows you to collect zero percent of your items?
We’ll be joined by Marcus Stewart, Ben Reeves and other rotating guests, as we look at your most favorite games franchises. Every Saturday, new episodes will drop starting October 16th. This is going to be an exciting ride.
