Show #1: Jeff and Mark's Top Ten Games

We start off with a quick description of what we envision for Gameopolis.  Then we take you on a tour of our gaming pasts.

Since this is our first attempt, the audio quality isn't quite what we were hoping for.  As we go along, we'll definitely be tweaking our setup and software settings to make improvements.  We'll also try to remember to keep our Blackberrys a few feet further from our computer!

We hope you enjoyed our stroll through Gaming Memory Lane.  This show ran longer than we envision for our future shows, but with 18 games to talk about we were bound to run overtime!  Stay tuned for Show 1.5 --a Session Report on one of these 18 fine games.  Thanks for listening!
