Episode 8 - Today's guest is Simon Parkin. A writer & videogame journalist who regularly contributes to Eurogamer, The New Yorker, The Guardian and a variety of other publications. He also helped design the controversial tower defence game Sweatshop, which was famously banned from the App Store.
We have a meandering chat about stories, the collector's impulse, Hidetaka Miyazaki and gaming as therapy. Along the way we talk Golden Axe, Final Fantasy 7, Bloodborne & a 4am moment of clarity when he realised Goldeneye had become a problem. We've all been there.
