So I remember a long while ago there was a lot of hate on Patrick and then he went to Chicago some time later and I guess I didn't pay much mind to it since I started listening to the podcast only a month or so after Ryan passed and have been listening to the older stuff retroactively. So what the hell is the deal? What is wrong with Patrick or is this just so childish hate for change to the podcast? Was watching the PAX panel video and how Brad was the least favorite and I can understand that and at one time I may have agreed with that. Back when they were still big into testing the drinks Brad was never really up to try stuff and kind of messed up the groove of things but it all comes down to what they know about games and he is pretty knowledgeable. Patrick has a good knowledge of horror games and what is wrong with the current ones which I can really agree with and he is a funny guy and paired with Vinny on a quicklook it's hilarious.
Of course Vinny is my favorite he is a very energetic and funny guy that is the lifeblood of the podcast as well as Jeff in close second. Seems drew has replaced Patrick sort of and he is great too. Just don't get the hate on change to the podcast. I mean I hate to say this but I like the podcast better with Jeff at the helm, that is not to say I'm glad Ryan is gone because I love him and am sad he's gone but I find that the podcasts run longer, which I like as I listen to them while I work, and they are more off the rails and goofy. When Ryan ran it he kept it fairly short and it was very much on the rails, in an organized manner and very much about games. With Jeff it's more loose and freeflowing. It just works really good overall, I mean the emails for the past couple months have been outstanding. No disrespect meant at all just saying sometimes change isn't all that bad. Just clue me in if there was an actual reason that stemmed this hate fest for Scoops.
