#194: Our Gaming Autobiographies


We skip over substantial portions of our hosts’ stories, of course. No mention is made of Walker’s extensive experience with Gilbert & Sullivan. Mark’s stint as the Official Pokémon Master of Canada is glossed over. The deep tribal conflict of Jocks versus Geeks, of which Walker is destined to be the bridge (think Dune but even more messianic), is only alluded to. Someday, the whole story might be told, but you wouldn’t believe us.

I can’t believe they found Imhotep tepid.

Same. I can see their point about pts being too small in scale that it’s a matter of winning 1 or 2 or 3, but I never felt that the game is too inconsequential. That’s what I tried at the start.

I’m curious now on what everyone else’s gaming autobiographies, if they are willing to tell, of course.
