The Experience Points Podcast
A weekly video game podcast from the co-writers of

Normally I try to think about high school as little as possible. But recently Kirk Hamilton of Kotaku asked us all to revisit our bygone days and think about high school as an interesting setting for videogames. This week on the EXP Podcast, Scott and I put on our school colors and discuss our experiences with media set in high school and the trials and tribulations of our collective youths that might make us turn on our console to visit, of all places, our own school experiences. We encourage you to read Kirk's original piece, which you can find in the show notes below. We also want you to leave your thoughts in the comments section below.

Discussion starters:

- What games set in high school have interested you and why?
- What high school experiences lend themselves well to gaming?

Show notes:

- Run time: 31 min 10 sec
