EXP Podcast #416: Dark Souls and Genre Defining Games
7 days ago
This week we are inspired by a Waypoint article arguing that Nioh proves that Dark Souls has created a genre. If so, what does that genre include and what should we call it? Does it bring any value to games to classify genres like this? These are important questions, but not half as important as this one: What ever happened to the Bro-Shooter?

I've been listening to the Experience Points podcast off and on for a few years, but have lately been listening nonstop, including exploring their back catalog. Hosts Jorge and Scott are the real thing, hardcore and old-school gamers from that apply analysis of tropes, themes, setting, story, artistic creativity, characters, and much more through the games they've been playing or encountered at events (Games for Change, E3, PAX, etc.). From Goat Simulator to Titanfall, games showcased can include indie games you've never heard of to impressions of hotly anticipated titles they have had hands on experience with. Yet they accomplish exploring these ideas in an amalgam of light-hearted conversation, jokes, anecdotes, and experiences. These are the kind of guys you want to drink a beer with, play some videogames, and have a good time. Their podcast evokes just that.
