Life-Affirmingly Great

Michael Abbott's Brainy Gamer Podcast is by far the most informative and intellectually exciting podcast about video games out there. Michael is sincere in his love of games, thoughtful in his consideration of games as a form of cultural production, and he has extremely great taste in friends/guests. This podcast (and the Brainy Gamer website) changed the way I think about and play games.

Provacative Topics

This show discusses some really interesting topics about video games, like creation, themes, even the violence-to-videogames debate. Discussions are brainy, as the title says, but easy to understand.

Erudite and engaging

Always a great listen - Michael is obviously very knowledgeable on the subject and always asks such great questions of his many fabulous guests. Only issue: doesn't come out often enough!

A Podcast About Video Games For Thoughtful People

Braden Fox here, host of The Armchair Gamer Podcast. The Brainy Gamer is my favorite video game podcast, or rather, it has my favorite perspective of any video game podcast. This is evident from the iTunes listing alone; it defies the "Video Games" category and instead is labeled as "Art". This is no pretentious self-labeling, it is only honest. BGP is a show about the art, joys and wonders of gaming. If you want smart, good-natured, optimistic analysis and discussion of games, listen to this show.

Fantastic Podcast for Game Enthusiasts

The Brainy Gamer is a must have for any gamer not only interested in games themselves, but in the process, psychology, and social implications of this emerging medium. Michael (the host) does a wonderful job of bringing important issues to the foreground and with the help his amazing line up of guests, thought provoking and downright funny conversations ensue. He frequently has guests who are highly involved in the gaming business and can really give and accurate feel for what it's like in that business. The Brainy Gamer is a "no brainer" when it comes to a great podcast on the topic of electronic gaming.
