Introducing Video Gameography – A New Podcast From Game Informer!



Most gaming podcasts these days do the same thing: summarize the news and talk about the big releases of the week. There’s nothing wrong with that, but our love of games isn’t tied to a release schedule. Whether you are a die-hard fan or a casual gamer who only has time for a certain number of games a year, the reason you fell in love with this medium is that you liked a game first. re-focus on some of our favorite franchises, explore how they have changed over the years, and examine why they have left a mark on the industry.

Video Gameography is a serialized podcast. Each season, we’ll explore a new franchise and why it’s essential. In each episode, we’ll take a look at a game from this series (starting with the first entry), talk about its lore, production history, and the impact it left on those who played it.

There is no shortage of major industry franchises that we hope to cover: God of War, Halo, Grand Theft Auto, Doom, The Legend of Zelda, Pokémon, and more. However, our first season focuses on Nintendo’s iconic Metroid franchise. Did you know that the iconic design of Samus’ big shoulders was a result of the limitations of the Game Boy? Or that it was originally named after legendary football / soccer legend Pelé? Or that Metroid Fusion is the only game in the series that can be completed with an item collection percentage of zero?

Join hosts Ben Reeves, Marcus Stewart, and a collection of rotating guests as we take a look at your favorite gaming franchises. New episodes are released every Saturday, starting October 16. It will be a mad rush.
