Episode 51: Gaming 101: Game Genres part 1

Though they were minus Corey this week, the Athletes forged ahead with their Gaming 101 series of episodes, this time touching on the subject of game genres.  Though these episode types are geared towards non and casual gamers, even seasoned gamers like ourselves learned a few things while recording this series.  This week we learned of genres that we didn't know existed, and a some that only had a handful of games from 30 years ago that no longer exist.  Neat stuff!
