The State of Games Ep. 172: The One About One Quiet Night

stateofgameslogonewWe are truly living in strange times, and, as such, we thought it was time to take a moment to reflect on how things have changed and what we’ve all been through in the past couple of months. Among the three of us, no one has been through more than our own Darrell Louder, whose family has been living in a COVID-positive household, resulting in him, his mother-in-law, and his son dealing directly with the virus. Yes, it’s a heavier episode, but we do take some time for levity and talk about how we can all deal with our self isolation with some quality gaming, proving that when times get tough we can always count on games to help keep us sane.

    Darrell, your experience exemplifies just how precarious our current situation really is. Thanks for sharing. Stay strong and prayers to you and your family to remain healthy.

    Happy gaming in whatever form you’re using nowadays (solo, online, etc.) to all of y’all.
