Three gamers count down their Top 100 Video Games of All Time.

Latest Episodes

Number 60 - Pokémon X, Fire Emblem Fates, Hyrule Warriors

EThe accusation that we three cents are just a bunch of Nintendo fanboys is usually unfounded! Especially given Chris’ notorious love of all things Mega Drive, and Jonathan’s salacious affair with the Sega Saturn library! But in an episode that touches on the three big Nintendo RPG series, it’s hard to argue that we don’t absolutely flipping love Nin-ruddy-tendo! Swords, shields, monsters and incest - the main pillars of many games, are all present here! We also take some time to discuss the ongoing questing of Minty and his dragons whilst he attempts to escape rooms on his phone; Jonathan having a wonderful time venturing into the blind forest with Ori, and Chris’ tremendous disappointment with poorly ported retro games! It’s all good fun!

Number 61 - Euro Truck Simulator 2, Xenoblade Chronicles 2, Kingdom Hearts

EHonk! This week on Our Three Cents, the chaps are all horrible. “What’s different from usual?” I hear you ask! Well, this time, they’re all horrible geese! Enabled by the sterling work of House House, Untitled Goose Game has captured all of our imaginations - find out what these three cents think of the game here. Will you be having a honkingly good time terrorising the neighbourhood? Also, hear all about Nintendo’s latest mobile release in Mario Kart Tour - is it worth your time? Meanwhile a can of time worms is opened as Chris waxes lyrical about his time on the open road with the cult classic, Euro Truck Simulator 2; Jonathan wanes chordially about his titanic adventure in Xenoblade Chronicles 2; and Minty moons melodically about the hugely successful Final Fantasy & Disney chimera that is Kingdom Hearts! Which of these 61st favourite video games of all time have you played?! What’s with all of these rhetorical questions? You tell me… that’s not how rhetoric works… Sorry?

Number 61 - Euro Truck Simulator 2, Xenoblade Chronicles 2, Kingdom Hearts

Bonus Level - Wellbeing Special

EThursday the 10th of October marks World Mental Health Awareness day. In recognition of this, our trio tell personal stories of how videogames can be a force for good in managing mental health and periods of distress or low mood. Clone Hero, Super Smash Bros Ultimate, A Link to the Past, Alto's Adventure, Tetris, and Super Mario Bros 3. Disparate games linked here by their ability to make our triumvirate slow down, refocus, and calm. Videogames may not be the solution for everyone, but we at Our Three Cents firmly believe in their value as tools for offering escapism, structure, or soothing nostalgia when the world seems a difficult place. Much love to all listening. Be kind to one another.

Number 62 - Machinarium, GoldenEye 007, Super Mario Odyssey

EJoin Joddy Doddy, Chroddy Doddy and Moddy Boddy for another exciting half hour of gaming guff. Can Apple save mobile gaming with the disruptive Apple Arcade? Can Nintendo sort out some of the framerate wobbles in Link's Awakening's otherwise stellar revamp? Just who or what is the Bucket Mouse? Then, onto the rankings where the gang rip through rusty robots, golden eyes and anthropomorphic forks by way of rude words, whimsy, bullet decals, dead ends, trilbys, and joy. They're good games, Brent.

Number 63 - Mario Kart 8, SuperHot VR, Thumper

EIt’s another week at the Our Three Cents towers and the lads have hoisted their banners to celebrate their 63rd favourite video games of all time. In this week, we have a gravity-defying plumber, a time-defying gunslinger, a sanity-defying beetle, and a deep analysis of what is need to make virtual reality a virtue and a reality for current generation gaming. Meanwhile, the gang conjure some veritable computer-game Chimeras thanks to a listener question about genre-bending classic game series; Jonathan’s Astral adventure is off the chain; Minty is pining for a horrible goose; and Chris has apparently started working as a part-time Samsung TV troubleshooting guru! Behold.

Number 64 - The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, Gunstar Heroes, The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds

ELook, mate, we know it's hard being the only kid in the playground during Monday lunch not talking about the latest Our Three Cents episode. They'll all be talking up how Chris was banging on about the Mega Drive yet again whilst Jonathan and Minty had a bit of a Zelda love-in, and you'll be staring at your shoes thinking 'if only I were a centurion, if only I knew what the boys 64th favourite video games of all time were'. Now you can. Now you can! Embrace the cents. b e c o m e t h e c e n t

Number 65 - Mario & Rabbids Kingdom Battle, Um Jammer Lammy, Psychonauts

EMario guest stars alongside Ubisoft's Minion-esque abominations, Parappa the Rapper hands the spotlight to his guitar playing pal, and Tim Schafer goes all weird again. Three great games, talked up by three great guys! Also, learn the answers to questions as varied as: Can Chris continue to engorge his quiz win tally on account of Minty's cross Atlantic phone delay? How many This War of Mine scenarios will Jonathan play through before he suffers a case of mental distress not too dissimilar to the games protagonists? How has Minty spent his tax rebate?

EIn just five minutes marvel as the trio chat about: a noughties pop sensation! Onions! Extreme heat! Beasts of ascending sizes! Chris misunderstanding the word ‘unique’! Then, with your podcast appetites whet, listen on for a further 25 minutes as Minty talks up his collection of purses, Chris goes on and on about a load of balls, and Jonathan reflects upon his favourite co-op experience of all time. Three lovely games that you should listen to us talk about, and then go out and beg, borrow or steal* to play yourselves. (*Our Three Cents do not condone burglary with intent to thieve… … … … … …unless it’s the only way in which you can access Puzzle and Dragons, Beautiful Katamari, or Rayman Legends)

Number 67 - The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, Metroid Fusion, Ico

EIt’s another week, and a Bank Holiday Monday at that, so what better way to enjoy your bonus time than by listening to this week’s episode! We discuss mobile games, virtual reality and disappointing woodland adventures. And Feathers are ruffled in the rankings this week, as we discuss what it feels like to be scared, what it feels like to be small and, most importantly, just how much starch belongs in a floppy green hat! And if that doesn’t get you listening, I know that you’re going to want to know which game has a tenuous link to the forgotten, and incredibly niche Sega Saturn release, Enemy Zero. Listen on to find out!

EThis week on Our Three Cents, the chaps tackle another eclectic tryptic of games in the form of a significantly-formative childhood gaming experience featuring a mouse; an expectation-subverting modern platformer featuring a tumour; and an abbreviation-smattered classic RPG remake featuring some running shoes! Also on the docket for discussion are Chris’ veritable summer-holiday-gaming stampede of activity; Jonathan’s veritable summer-holiday-gaming descent into pure unadulterated wartime bleakness; and Minty’s veritable summer-holiday-gaming instigation of Chris’ robo-dino-phobic beliefs! More hyphenations than you can shake a stickily-sticky stick at! Deal with it.
