The Weekly Stuff Podcast #250 – Our Top 10 Favorite Games of All Time, Part 1


It’s time for the special 250th episode of The Weekly Stuff Podcast with Jonathan Lack & Sean Chapman, a weekly audio show that explores the worlds of film, television, and video games. You can subscribe for free in iTunes by following this link

250 is a big number. It’s a lot of episodes. It represents somewhere in the vicinity of 750 hours of podcast recording, better known as one full month’s worth of time. And for the occasion, we are revisiting one of our oldest topics: Our Top 10 Favorite Games of All Time. We originally did this topic for episodes 55, 56, and 57 of the podcast, back in 2013, before the launch of the PS4 and one of the most rewarding periods in video game history. Five years later, Sean and Jonathan have completely remade their lists, keeping some favorites, throwing others away, and welcoming in a lot of newcomers, old and new. We’re splitting this discussion into two parts, with this week’s episode covering the bottom half of our lists – #10 through #6 – while next week’s show will cover #5 through #1. These were fun, challenging lists to put together, and made for one of our most engaging discussions ever, as we talk through the games that best encapsulate our personal canons. 

Enjoy, and come back next week for Part 2!

The Weekly Stuff Podcast #249 – The Last of Us 5-Year Anniversary Retrospective Spectacular!


It’s time for another episode of The Weekly Stuff Podcast with Jonathan Lack & Sean Chapman, a weekly audio show that explores the worlds of film, television, and video games. You can subscribe for free in iTunes by following this link

2018 marks the 5-year anniversary of Naughty Dog’s masterpiece The Last of Us,and with Part II on the horizon and having made a big splash at E3 this summer, we thought now was the perfect time to look back on the game that closed out the previous console generation, but in many ways presaged the major creative trends of this one. Alongside guest Thomas Lack, Sean and Jonathan go in depth reevaluating the game after a recent re-play, considering how it has aged, where it transcends its time and technology, and how its gameplay systems don’t just complement the masterful storytelling, but enhance it every step of the way. 

Enjoy!
