To send off the current generation of consoles, we decided to do something a little special.
There are no winners or losers this week, just our fondest memories from one of gaming's longest console cycles. I had a nice time recording this episode. Like Justin and Griffin, I started covering games professionally during this generation. I can plot my entire career alongside its big releases, studio openings, studio closures, small conferences, big conferences and comic conferences. When the Xbox 360 came out, I was still in college. That's strange to think about.
Share a few of your best memories from this generation in the comments. Let's have an old-fashioned reminiscence.
- 4:00 - Watching Nintendo reveal the Wii
- 13:15 - Being an early adopter of Rock Band
- 25:00 - Halftime - Call of Duty: Ghosts
- 37:00 - Finishing Portal 2
- 42:00 - Playing through Oblivion with the McElroy clan
- 1:01:00 - The winner is everyone!
