Episode 72 - The rise and fall of first-person shooters, G4TV and art in society
We did a podcast two weeks in a row, it's a miracle! Tim asks whatever happened to Titanfall, a game Jon was high on before it came out in 2014, and that leads in to a conversation about the shooter genre in general and how consoles may never have another "revolutionary" first-person shooter game like Doom, Goldeneye or Halo. That then leads into a conversation about G4TV - what we liked about it before and why we have incredibly low expectations for the upcoming revival of it or any other gaming-based TV channel moving forward. Finally the discussion moves into movies and how the younger generation has kept movie theaters alive (pre-pandemic) and it's up to younger people to keep the arts alive as the world evolves around emerging technologies such as social media, crypto/NFT's and more.
