i like the core concept, i like hearing the logic behind each pick and each cut, but i found trying to keep up with the draft process, which was and still is pretty much alien to me, kind of frustrating?
but i’ve listened to bunch of be good and rewatch it without having seen the movie in question and felt like i didn’t need to - i felt like the podcast discussion did not require that prior knowledge.
maybe it’s just me. i dunno.
anyway, i copied down the final lineups, if that’s helpful to anyone.
in the order they are given, starting around the 2h mark:
grand theft auto, god of war, metroid, spider-man, horizon: zero dawn, silent hill, elden ring, the avengers, kid icarus
destiny, kingdom hearts, minecraft, super smash bros, xcom, dragon’s dogma, ghostwire: tokyo, deathloop, outer wilds
mario, the legend of zelda, pokémon, fire emblem, red dead, fortnite, cyberpunk 2077, baldur’s gate, fifa
halo, final fantasy xiv, final fantasy (series), nier: automata, sea of thieves, ori, starfield, cartoon network, dwarf fortress
personally, i think cado has the best lineup, and i think that’s mostly because there are three wholly new names on there. franchises get old enough you know how a game goes just by the name on the box. sometimes that’s what you want, but there has to be something new, too, for games to be more than a performance of a selection of things everyone already knows. i know how a mario works. show me a celeste.
cartoon network is probably the single best pick though. that’s as close as you can get to picking an entire format.
