Gamer’s Footnotes:

Semi-Pretentious thoughts on Gaming!

Gamer’s Footnotes is a podcast by a couple of adults wishing to discuss and explore some issues in gaming and gaming culture that are often overlooked, glossed over, or discussed in a cursory fashion. Topics include analysis on criticism within gaming, gaming as art, the internal gamer cultural, society’s view on gaming, developer and community interaction, economics or gaming, or other topics that catch our fancy.

Our general format is one large topic and then each host selects a smaller tropic to discuss. Each show runs roughly a hour or until we grow tired of hearing our own voices.

If there is anything you want to hear us discuss, please feel free to email us at


1. : a note of reference, explanation, or comment usually placed below the text on a printed page

2. : one that is a relatively subordinate or minor part (as of an event, work, or field)

Why do we consider the podcasts as footnotes? Nothing we say will probably make you love or dislike videogames more than you do already, but each of these podcast seek to provide an explanation on a who/what/when/where/why/how of gaming and gaming life.


1: characterized by pretension: as

a : making usually unjustified or excessive claims (as of value or standing)

b : expressive of affected, unwarranted, or exaggerated importance, worth, or stature

2. making demands on one’s skill, ability, or means : ambitious

Semi-Pretentious because it is kinda all of that, but not because we are creating something, so we are cool! That is how it works!
