Austin, Rob and Patrick and myself took some time today to discuss our week of writing stories about the relationship between guns and games. We interviewed a game developer who never shoots in games, an academic who studies the relationship between games and violence (and lack of strong correlation), and wrote and edited critical pieces on games as cultural objects, customizable trophies, and much, much more. We also discuss Canadian pizza and Far Cry 5, because, of course we do.
