Scene: A group of ape-like creatures approaches an enormous black obelisk. The creatures become agitated, whooping and howling as the skitter back and forth in confusion and fright. The braver of the creatures start to approach th obelisk, and the boldest of the group reaches out to touch it. Looking down, the creature espies a bone, and for some reason he feels the urge to pick it up. The excitement in the group reaches fever pitch, and in a frenzy the bone is thrown high into the air… the camera pans upwards to follow the bone’s trajectory, and as it spins against the bright blue prehistoric sky it seamlessly morphs into the form of an NES controller. Human civilisation has begun.

Its the 101 Video Games That Made My Life Slightly Better Podcast! In our 10th recording we discuss the relationship between films and video games. Marvel at how Lewis and Ian don’t let a little thing like not seeing a film stop them from making sweeping statements about its relationship to games. Laugh as Lewis manages to bring up Batman in the first two minutes of a podcast. Gasp as Ian brings up Lewis in the shower. Again.
