If you’re like us, you’re currently recovering from Election Fever, the most civic-minded of all imaginary diseases. And if you’re not tired of weighing various options against one another, we have you covered here in a retro-gaming-packed episode of our Bring Your Own Topic podcast.

This time around, host GamesBeat editor-in-chief Dan “Shoe” Hsu sits down with Chris Kohler (editor of Wired’s Game|Life), mobile developer Red Robot Labs‘ (Life is Crime) John Davison, and Kingdoms of Camelot developer Kabam‘s Andy Alamano. They show their age repeatedly while they choose their candidates for the best and worst in games made in those halcyon days before that Street Fighter movie came out.

This episode’s topics:

  • Best graphics (at the time)
  • Hardest retro title
  • Most impressive musical moment
  • Which later-released retro game should we have gotten when it first came out?
  • Most rewarding
  • Most disappointing ending
