Description:

There's no bad games, just games that aren't for you. The Gaming Outsider is a community driven video game podcast that aims to discuss gaming in a positive light. Going in with the philosophy that “there are no bad games, only games that aren’t for you”, hosts Scott Clark from The Hollywood Outsider podcast, TooBusyGaming.com’s Josh Faulkner, and veteran gamer dad Zach Anderson set out to engage in discussions that avoid trashing developers and publishers while also avoiding the politics and controversies surrounding the industry. Our focus is strictly on the games and the team realizes that not every gamer has the same opinions on each game released and hope to represent a wide variety of tastes.
