Jack's in the wind for episode 14 due to illness. Boasting some of the most robust game creation tools for its time, LittleBigPlanet tapped into user created content to generate millions of levels. Is that enough to make it one of the best games period? Episode 14 is a bit of a strange beast - about halfway through the episode it takes a turn toward general game conversation. All in all, it's a pretty fun listen!

There was very little debate about whether we would talk about Super Mario Bros. 3 on this podcast. Did you know that Super Mario Bros. 3 inadvertently created Id Software, the creators of Doom? What exactly makes the legendary platformer so legendary? The three hosts go over this and a whole lot more while discussing whether or not it is one of the best games period.

Jack returns in time to discuss GoldenEye 007 for the N64. Time has not been kind to gaming's early adventures with 3D and FPS games on consoles have aged especially poorly. Does a game have to be aesthetically pleasing and also appeal to modern gaming sensibilities to be considered one of the all-time greats? Strap in and get ready for some quality Bond-ing time.

Despite losing Jack to a case of crippling mouth pain, Jeremy and Daniel soldier on through episode eleven to talk about Insomniac Games' finale to the Resistance trilogy. Though it released to mixed reviews and some heated opinions regarding its box art, Resistance 3 has managed to stand out in the minds of a significant number of its players in the years since. With Insomniac returning to Ratchet and Clank soon, maybe their PlayStation 3 title deserves a second look. Does the divisive ending to their gritty alternate history shooter have what it takes to be one of the best games period?

For our tenth episode we cover the twelfth main entry in the Final Fantasy series. Though initially releasing to some of the best reviews of any Final Fantasy title, time has solidified XII's status as the black sheep of the series. Does its groundbreaking visuals, real-time battle system, and risky shake up of the Final Fantasy formula earn it a place as one of the best games period?
