Did you all know that some Star Wars happened? Commander Naik forgot. We chat about that plus the old Indiana Jones adventure games, while also finding time to go through Captain Timmy’s top 10 list for 2019.

Born and raised in St. Louis, MO, Richard received his first console (the NES) at the age of six, and from that point on games have been an integral part of his life, whether it's been frittering summers away with the likes of Mario, Mega Man, and the Zerg or partaking in marathon sessions of Halo, Team Fortress 2 or Left 4 Dead. After being a longtime reader of GameCritics, Richard joined the staff in March of 2009, and over the years Richard grew into the more prominent role of part-time podcast host.

In 2016, he spearheaded a complete rebuild of the GameCritics.com website, earning him the title of Chief Engineer.

His gaming interests are fairly eclectic, ranging from 2D platformers to old-school-style adventure games to RPGs to first-person shooters. So in other words, he’ll play pretty much anything.

Thanks, but does this mean there won’t be a full Game Critics GOTY podcast this year?

Hey Mr. Glass!

We haven’t done a full GC podcast in several years… Some of the old crew are not at the site anymore, and we don’t have a unified show these days. Richard and Tim are on the Bridge Crew and I do So Videogames with Carlos Rodela, so we do offer two different shows but neither one is what you’re looking for. But hey, maybe give the new stuff a try? ^_^

MrGlass, you beautiful man, thank you for writing. Richard and I talk about this in more detail on Bridge Crew, but no, we’re not doing one this year. Our schedules are just too out of synch and besides, I only play Assassin’s Creed games now.

That said, I’d love to see Sweet Baby Suskers pick up the podcast gauntlet and carry the legacy forward, because I think he did a great job with his hosting gigs. Suskers, if you are reading this, it’s time.
