What minigames are better than the games they're in?

Anime was a mistake

Look, I don't name these things, so if you take umbrage with the meme, take it up with producer Kyle MacGregor. If you like the meme, well then give this podcast a listen, so long as you go in knowing we don't say much about anime. But we d...
