Baldur's Gate 3 is great, but can you talk about it at parties?

Not that any of us get invited to parties.

Baldur's Gate 3 is finally upon us if you're a PC gamer, in which case, this episode is especially for you, because it's all about social inadequacy.

Gaming, despite its mainstream acceptance in recent years, is still an extremely nerdy hobby, full of very niche stuff that rarely makes headlines beyond the enthusiast press. Yes, that's right, I'm sorry to break it to you, but if you're reading this that's what you are: an enthusiast. But never mind, because one thing worth being enthusiastic about is VG247's Best Games Ever Podcast, where you need not fear the prospect of social ostracisation from being too into niche video games. Or boring ones. Or, er, risque ones. Because we're nerds too. This is a safe space. There's no judgement here. Unless you're Connor, but the less said about his contribution this week the better, frankly.

Special thanks to David Bulmer for performing "Jim's Theme".

You could also simply read the summary below, if you're the sort of person who skips to the last page of a book (a wrongun, a reprobate, a Bad Seed).


Alex picked Democracy 3 on the grounds that there's one thing you never bring up at parties, and that's politics.


Kelsey decided picked the greatest game of all time: Euro Truck Simulator 2.


Connor didn't pick anything.

“What is the Best Games Ever Show?” you ask? Well, it is essentially a 30-minute panel show where people (Jim Trinca and associates) decide on the best game in a specific category. That's it. It's good. Listen to it.

Come back in a week for another exciting instalment of the Best Games Ever Show.
