BGB Podcast #71 – A Hate-Love Relationship

Don’t hate what you don’t understand.

There’s nothing sweeter than the softening of a heart, that precious feeling when all of the things you thought you’d dislike, suddenly become endearing. We’re counting down our favourite games that we thought we were going to hate, but ended up loving. Before we go full tsundere, we talk about Indian Summer, Richard the Lionheart, and X nimmt!
