This week's Jim Sterling show is about "Why We Need Middle Shelf Games".

It's like he READ MY MIND.

Earlier today, before I'd even read the title of his video, I was browsing through my old PS2 games, sad that my most cherished PS2 memories are the kind of "B Game" that we're not allowed to have anymore.

@apLundell I feel like we're getting selected indies to fill some of those gaps.

@electrotamitha A bit, yeah.

But I feel like there's still a big gap.

A title like "Raw Danger" is small potatoes to a big publisher, but it would be beyond the budget of most smaller studios.

And that gap is exactly where my fondest gaming memories come from. :(

@apLundell I'd be more impressed if this video came with a transcript. I can read faster than this clown can talk.

@starbreaker That is why YouTube allows you to play videos at 2X speed!

I highly recommend it. I listen to podcasts that way too.
