Twitter recently saw a trending hashtag for folk to proclaim their seven favourite video games of all time, so we decided to do a podcast episode around the premise.

Some of us (hi!) had more trouble than others narrowing it down, but Russ, Keith, Gary and yours truly managed in the end. Sort of. We aired the podcast this week, but if you haven’t watched it yet, don’t have the time or you’re simply curious, here’s the round-up of the Couch-Co-op Podcast #7FavGames.
