LGR: Episode 43 - Fave Games Played in 2016 Special (Part Two)

January 17, 2017

Finally....

The Time Has Come…

Drumroll…

In this special show (the second of two instalments) the entire podcasting team get together to discuss their favourite games played in 2016. Join Mark, Cev, Lee, Andy, Stuart N, Adam, Ali and Stuart C... It’s time to see what gets the silver and the gold...

As you will know by now, valued listener, we are not a typical videogame podcast: LGR is comprised of a varied bunch of folks and game players, so expect diversity among the games featured on our lists. By our very nature we are lapsed gamers, and therefore, as with last year’s fave games played special, these games are our top games we have played over the past twelve months, not necessarily games that first came out in 2016. So both older titles and the new are represented across our lists. Plus, we hope to post our individual picks for 10 to 6 on the LGR site in the near future for your reading pleasure.

Thank you for tuning-in once again and here’s to another year of collectively keeping the hobby alive for is all. We’d love for you to get involved, so please do send us an email - lapsedgamerradio@gmail.com - about what you’re playing or not finding time to play, any feedback on our podcast or if you’d like to be on a future episode with us.
