Ah the holidays—a time for being with family and thinking about the important things in life. Like…gaming! Hosts Joe and Micah of the PlayNation Podcast discuss the perfect games and ways to play over the holidays—sneaking in some game time on the Vita or mobile device, playing old classics like Home Alone (SNES) with the family, or dumping time into service games like Red Dead Online or The Division 2. The two then chat about their favorite games played in 2020 (The Last of Us Parts I&II, Spiritfarer, and Hades among them) and whether the year was defined by Sony’s PS4 output or the arrival of the PS5 and the next generation.
The episode wraps up talking about where they’d like to take the podcast in 2021—inviting listeners to reach out and share their thoughts as well. A promising start for this show that maintains a good back and forth between the hosts and a healthy amount of personal anecdotes (like a non-gamer reverend in Micah’s church recommending Spiritfarer in a sermon) instead of simply going over headlines.
