Most video games are just more fun when shared with someone you care about. Memorable gaming moments are even more special when you can recount them with a loved one years later. On this episode, Ed is joined by VGMbassador-tier Patron FranklyZappa to chat about the crazy gaming stories they’ve had with our brothers and family members. Prepare to be entertained with tales of playing 1080 Snowboarding in full snowboarding garb, weird haunted RC Pro Am cars, and waiting for the Mortal Kombat bus at 2:30 in the morning. Why are kids so crazy?
