Like Your Sh**, Be Proud (But Try to Understand That Not Everyone Has to Like It) – Best Video Game Podcast



So, it's happened. A game that serves a somewhat small but very passionate fan base has come out. The underwhelming game has been met with indifference from the mass market and a critical bloodbath.

There is nothing wrong with liking something that's not popular. Moreover, there's no magic rule that says things being popular makes them inherently better than other things. So why is the fanbase getting so defensive and uppity? Relax. Every single one of us likes games that most people don't. Conversely, every single one of us hates games that a lot of people love. So what? Does it matter?

Uh, no SoundCloud this time because that shit costs money after you hit so many hours of uploads, so ah… we're figuring that out. Still though, I think you're pretty much good, right? YouTube embedded if you want that, MP3 download still available right here if you want that instead. If you prefer SoundCloud, let us know, so that we can see how important it is to our listeners.

Thanks as always for listening.
