Best Podcast of 2009: Giant Bomb’s Endurance Run: Persona 4

This post has not been edited by the GamesBeat staff. Opinions by GamesBeat community writers do not necessarily reflect those of the staff.

January's 1Up-ocalypse preceded some great new podcasts both audio and visual.

Over at Giant Bomb though, a different kind of regular video feature was going on. Every week-day, from February 1st to September 18th, Vinny Caravella and Jeff Gerstmann played Persona 4 adding their often hilarious commentary.

I have no PS2 or desire to crawl through boring dungeons. Without this I never would have heard of Persona 4, let alone met its deep, charming characters or absorbed it's fantastic story.

Persona is full of weird Japanese craziness that is best enjoyed with two funny guys laughing at it with you. But when it came to important dialogue, they quickly learned to shut up and let us listen like it was Harry Potter rolled into Shenmue.
