  1. If you listen to podcasts while gaming, what games do you like to play? 

    I would often play Wind Waker HD (once you get the ability to sail anywhere) on low/mute while listening to different casts. Same with Puyo or Tetris. For some reason, playing games while listening helps me focus better.

      I just cannot do that. If I had something to listen to while playing a game, I'd be down a pit or in a dead-end faster than trying to doom myself deliberately.

      @Your Vest Friend Amen. I can understand listening to a podcast when working or something, but doing so when playing a game would just completely suck me out of the experience.

      Unless I'm grinding in an RPG or hatching Pokemon or doing something mindless. That's just busy work.

      I don't listen to podcasts, but usually listen to reviewers like SomeCallMeJohnny, or Caddicarus and the like when I'm playing games.

      The only real exceptions to the rule is Overwatch and/or multiplayer games where I need to concentrate fully, and listen for footsteps and ambient sound to get an idea on player locations or story-driven games where the majority of gameplay consists of dialogue (so things like The Walking Dead, Heavy Rain, or adventure puzzle games like Sam & Max).

      The only traditional game I can think of that has the same effect is possibly GTA V, since I tend to listen to the in-game radio more often than not, instead of having something play in the background.

      I actually do multitask while gaming but I usually do that for Pokemon, mostly because I'm grinding for something.

      If I do that for regular RPGs I'd get lost in the story. I'm at the post game for these things. lol

      The game's sound ques are usually pretty important and even if they aren't the ingame audio is more immersive. I'll make an exception for something like Overwatch where you can just sort of mindlessly fuck around

      I listen to a lot of podcasts but can't say I do during gaming particularly.  I like to listen to music during otherwise fairly-musicless games like Overwatch (in fact after noticing that game shared a lot of environment tropes with Sonic games, I ended up making a playlist of Sonic music to match each map) but even in such a game, when I've tried to play while listening to podcast, I found the game too distracting and realised I missed a bunch of the podcast.

      I think I've done it with really simple games like Peggle before, but anything that has a narrative to it, I usually want to be into that narrative, even if it's a game I've played a million times.

      Generally I save podcasts for menial tasks like colouring comics (not the initial drawing though, since I'll have the dialogue playing in my head as I draw and that will make me ignore the podcast), walking the dog, doing dishes etc.  If I'm playing a game I'm already entertained, I never feel like I need a second layer.  But I'm also not the entertainment multi-tasking type anyways. I'm not the sort to turn on the TV while playing a game just because I want the noise, etc.

      it's mostly been mario maker 2 lately, but i'll play almost anything while listening to something else. at least, anything i've already played through before; first time through i'll focus on the story and atmosphere more, but once i'm familiar with it i'm fine going on autopilot. i usually find it kind of hard to just sit and listen to a podcast (or even some videos, if the appeal is more in the audio than the visuals) so i like having something kinda mindless and routine to occupy my eyes and hands.
