Welcome to Friends List!
If this is your first episode, Friends List is a daily web series where we have one-on-one talks about a single question related to video games. The goal is to give both Polygon's many team members across the globe and those involved in covering, designing and releasing games, an opportunity to speak with you.
Today on Friends List, News Editor Brian Crecente and Opinions Editor Ben Kuchera ask: Why do checkpoints suck in so many games?
The episode will begin at 2 p.m. ET (or thereabouts!) and will be available via YouTube following the recording. While you wait you can watch the previous episode: Wait... Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfareis good?
