Oh, and 100 episodes of a podcast that's been like a pair of tattooed knuckles, offering both love and hate for all things gaming.. Yes, one knuckle's been slightly bigger than the other. Okay, not slightly.

Sinan, I just realized how great you are! I think it was the line about being so dry that no one can tell any more if you are joking. That's a great place to be... don't go changing.

100 podcasts !

A big thanks to Tim, Dylan, Sinan, Richard, Mike, Chi, Brad and all other GC crew and guests who appear on the podcast.

In my opinion the Game Critics Podcast had been the best Video games podcast for at least the last 5 years, and I listen to all the better popular ones.

Brads eloquence, Mikes brutal honesty and a diversity of gaming tastes, with the best series of hosts since podcasting began - makes for a good conversation that I don't get anywhere else.

Well done guys. All done with hard work and free to the listeners.

Thanks forever.

Congrats and a...Pro-Tip?

Hey guys, first off, congratulations on the 100th episode. I first came to GC at the recommendation of my brother, and what instantly appealed to me was the fact that GC always had the gumption to rate games on a true 0-10 scale rather than a 6-10 scale like so many other sites. That immediately told me that GC was a source of genuine criticism. Although I didn't always agree, I always appreciated that honesty.

I started listening to the podcast and reading GC reviews around 2-3 years ago. I was pretty diligent about listening to the podcasts until about 6 months ago or so, but my interest kind of dwindled down to almost nothing after a while, and now I'm about 4-5 podcasts behind at the moment (except for this one). I'm not sure what exactly it is that made me lose interest. Maybe it's that the podcasts seemed to be getting more sparse and unfocused after Tim left. Or, I'd be lying if I said I didn't have some real life stuff going on and it wasn't as convenient to listen to podcasts all day at work anymore. Whatever the case I wanted to give you guys some friendly advice:

One of the things that has been bugging me for a while is the political commentary on some of the podcasts and blog entries. I'm not sure if anyone has ever said anything directly about it before, but it does seem to crop up consistently over time. This type of stuff usually comes up during segments like "Thumbs Up and Thumbs Down", where hosts feel free to sound off on political issues. It also crops up on critics' written personal update entries from time to time, where they feel free to encourage their own personal agendas.

It's not worth getting into a debate over specific policies. I'd like to take a step back and simply say that GameCritics would be much better off just leaving politics alone and focusing on games journalism. You have such a unique angle on games that you shouldn't be -- as you must realize -- alienating half of your potential audience.

I just read a recent forum discussion topic "Why did GameCritics never catch on?" What I'm advising directly correlates to such a discussion. When you compare this type of political jabbing and commentary to other more successful games journalism sites, you can see a big difference in the way such issues are treated.

What I'm suggesting is to please refrain form the political and personal agenda commentary. When you say that your grandmother's health is in jeopardy, that is a human issue and that evokes a human reaction, which is fine. When you say [so and so political party] is responsible for my grandmother's poor health, or [so and so politician's policy] is good, that has a potential to alienate listeners and readers.

Thanks, and best of luck in the future,

Firstly, congrats on the

Firstly, congrats on the 100th episodes! It's good to hear everyone's voice again, even the cameo recording from Tim Spaeth and Dylan Collins! I miss them and hope they make an appearance soon (but keep Sinan Kubba too! I like that guy's British humor...)

Secondly, I don't mind the political discussions one bit, and they're not particularly long anyway. Anyone who doesn't feel the same way could just skip the thumbs-up thumbs-down portion since I don't recall anyone injecting politics when they talk games.

Thirdly, my favorite podcast moments were mostly whenever they talk about game reviews -- like the myths, how to do it, and why Mike Bracken is the Ernest Hemingway of RPG reviews. Best game could be Persona 4. Worst, Final Fantasy 13, and it ALWAYS delights me to hear the rest of the crew hate that game so much. Also, I think my least favorite podcast moment may be whenever Chi Kong Liu defends Nintendo. I love that guy, but geez man please stop being a Nintendopologist some time...

Congratulations!

Congratulations!

I started listening to your podcast a little over a year ago and love it. I hope you guys keep doing this for at least another 5 years.

Greetings from Germany.

Congrats on 100 episodes

Congrats on 100 episodes chaps! Great to have Mike back. =)

Congratz!

Congratulations to the 100th podcast! Hearing Tim's voice at the very beginning gave me a warm and fuzzy feeling...

Onwards to another 100! ;) Looking forward to your best/worst of 2013 show.
