Listener Questions

I have 2 questions.

1: What do you all think about the idea of recency bias in the Game Awards nominees?

2: How do you feel about the state of the industry? With several outlets seeing massive layoffs or completely shutting down, does it make you worry for its future?

Scott Oroepel


If Among Us is nominated why wasn’t CrossCode? It’s up for my GOTY this year.

Also, I can’t choose between Ashley Johnson and Laura Bailey. Both are phenomenal. Where do you stand?
