Thank you for reaching our 19th episode, loyal listener! But our princess is in another castle! See what I did there?
So it turns out the Polybius legends were true: video games can have potent effects on our brain chemistry. But don't take Joe Lieberman's word for it; more often than not, it's actually good for your mental health. Gaming has been shown in studies to provide a therapeutic outlet for reducing stress and improving brain function. Even when you're playing murder games like Elsa's current fave, Hitman 2. (We're open to sponsorships, IO Interactive!)
Coree and Elsa take this opportunity to discuss the wide variety of games that help them get by, whether on mobile, PC or home consoles. Because all gaming is valid, and don't let anyone tell you different—if you agree, join us in tweeting #StopGatekeepingGames to spread the word. And along the way, Elsa introduces us to their secret lovechild, Red Jimmy-Jams.
