Our Editor's Take

Get Played is a video game podcast for fans who want to see video games in a different way. It began with the hosts picking games and answering the question, "How did this get played?" The games selected range from the worst-rated to the weirdest on the market. Audiences will hear how to play them. They'll also hear many funny jokes.

The Get Played podcast main hosts are gaming fans and comedians Heather Anne Campbell and Nick Wiger. In many episodes, fellow funnyman Matt Apodaca joins them. Together, they invite their friends to play games with them and chat about gaming. In a Question Block segment, they also spend time answering listener questions.

Listeners will explore the gaming archives in the regular Heather's Hole segment. In an episode titled "Speedruns with Yusong Liu," they go back to 1995 to discuss games. They talk to gamer Yusong about his new love for mahjong and streaming on Twitch. Another exciting guest on the Get Played podcast is Marvel Comics writer Cody Ziglar. The hosts chat with Cody about the game Cyberpunk: Edgerunners. The episode starts during gameplay as they argue about a potential auto-jacking during a heist. Other games that get the Get Played discussions are God of War and Vampire Survivors.

It wouldn't be a gaming podcast without talk about the legendary Fortnite game. The hosts decide to each choose a game they think the other host will hate, which in this case is Fortnite for Nick. In another episode, Nick and Heather pick Blair Witch VR for their cohost Matt. Things get a little spooky as they discuss the original film and even their own ghost stories.

This is all part of a segment called The Game Was Better. During this segment, they examine which they think is better: the game or the film. Listeners will hear the hosts' thoughts on Silent Hill and Tron. Each episode includes game reviews and recommendations. Funny sketches included throughout bring extra comedy to the series. The Get Played podcast is a lot of fun for gamers of all levels.
