The Besties Game of the Year special for 2015 is now available, you monster
Dec 28 15
Last year, we published a post called "The Final Besties Ever." We're sorry that we lied about that, but we're even sorrier for those of you who made it happen by constantly demanding that we do it. We can't imagine what dark hole is embedded in your heart that you require one of the most universally maligned video game podcasts in history in order for your year to be complete, but that's your cross to bear. True story: If Russ Frushtick's audio sounds odd during this episode, it's because he literally talked into the wrong side of his mic for the whole show, I shit you not. This is the podcast you demanded. This. This is on you. If you'd like to subscribe to The Besties, you still can, believe it or not. 7:00 - Honorable Mentions 31:20 - Round One 1:09:50 - Round Two 1:45:20 - Round Three 2:25:25 - Final Decision Theme song by Ian Dorsch Download MP3

Best Gaming Podcast
This is the most thoughtful gaming podcast out there. Which is a strange thing to say about a show that includes the New York Giraffe.
The review element of the show is solid, but it's the broader reflections on gaming that set the show apart. Also, while they do sometimes deal with industry and game journalism insider stuff, they manage to avoid making it self-involved.
Also, the new monthly format seems to have made a good show better.

Funny and informative
I've listened to the besties since the beginning and have always found that they do a great job of discussing games in a fun and entertaining way. The new format allows for more quality of information in each show, and they frequently make me laugh. I recommend this to those who want a fun gaming podcast. Keep up the good work guys!
