GI Show - Our Early Game Of The Year Predictions

by Ben Reeves on Aug 13, 2020 at 11:42 AM

In this week's episode of The Game Informer Show we talk about a handful of the games we've been playing recently, including: Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 + 2 remake, Hyper Scape, Undermine, and Stream Raiders. Then we go through some of the biggest games we've already played this year and talk about our personal GOTY (to date).

Next up, we have an interview with Atari game designer Howard Scott Warshaw who worked on classics such as Yars' Revenge, Raiders of the Lost Ark, and E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial. Howard Scott Warshaw can also be seen in the upcoming 6-episode Netflix video game documentary series, High Score, which releases on August 19. Finally, we close out the show with a fantastic round of community emails. So please join Joe Juba, Dan Tack, Alex Stadnik, and myself for another wild and ever-entertaining episode!
