Couch Podtatoes Episode 49: What Are Games?


Ok, so I lied last week when I said we wouldn’t have anymore late shows. Me and Eri did get together and nailed down the perfect time each week to record, but we have been trying to get an episode going with Doone for quite a few weeks now, and due to scheduling conflicts it wasn’t possible to do so until today. So we recorded earlier, I edited and now you get the show. It’s only a day late at least.

With Doone back, it’s time for another Doone’s Digital Frontier episode, and this time it’s a philosophical discussion entitled “What are Games?” We ask the question and ponder the answer(s). I’d say this was one of our more humourous episodes, as we took the time to poke fun at each other and other stuff quite readily. We laughed during the recording session and I laughed some more while I was editing it. That’s really all there is to say, so on with the show!

One thought on “Couch Podtatoes Episode 49: What Are Games?

  1. Was finally able to catch this during work. Really enjoyed the philosophical views and arguments. I suppose I’d split the two categories of toy and game as a toy is something you come up with the rules on how to use while a game comes with its own rules on how to play with it. Lego’s are a toy, while Monopoly is a game.
    Also, you were thinking of rule 34 when it comes to if it exists, there’s porn of it. 42 is a reference to Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy. 42 is the “Answer to The Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe, and Everything”.
