When we last talked about the various video game ratings systems, we concluded that they were useless. Now that we're older and wiser, our perspective has evolved accordingly. What if video game ratings are good, actually?
Vinnk and Sean dive into the history of Night Trap (now that Sean's actually played it), and how the congressional hearing lead to a surge in sales that may not have happened for such a... mediocre game. Sean reviews the 2014 Shadowgate remake on his Nintendo Switch, and Vinnk tries to convince Sean why he should play Animal Crossing: New Horizons.
