We're just a couple of guys from New Orleans who like talking about comics, video games, anime and movies!

THE COUNTDOWN HAS COMMENCED! Now that the Honorable Mentions are out of the way, it is time to delve into the true meat of the Top 100 list. This part details our collective picks for numbers 100 all the way to 81. We discuss the merits of each game while simultaneously complaining whenever a game we didn't want on the list appears. Alas, that is the way is goes during a collaborative effort, not everyone can get their way. But then again, isn't that the fun of lists like these? Complaining about lists is one of the true joys of being a nerd. 

For this section of the list, we bid farewell to our resident Angry Gamer, Ronald "It Gon Rain" Bienemy who was off hosting a Baton Rouge Gaymers Event, but say hello to several others! This time we have Matt "I Cried During Lufia" Finneman, Chris "Thick Veiny Cock" Robinson, Scott "Hates RPGs" Brehm, Mason "TWEWY" Maldonado, Andy "Eye Roll" Niemann, and other Andy "The Thing Is" Dileo. 

What do you think of the first round of games? Agree? Disagree? Think a game should be ranked higher? Or not at all? Let us know! E-mail us at

Welcome to the very first installment of our long awaited definitive list of the best video games of all time (according to us) See, that is an important distinction to make. This is not a Top 100 Influential Games or Top 100 Games that Changed Videogames list. We only put games on here that we personally played, personally enjoyed, and personally recommend. If it came out before we were born? Chances are it didn't make the cut. Full disclosure: Atari is entirely missing from this list. Sorry. Each Nola Nerd contributed their own personal Top Video Games list, and then we all gathered together to debate and decide the definitive order of them. 

This first part details the games that weren't quite good enough to make it onto the list. These are the Nola Nerd Podcast's Honorable Mentions. 

After you listen, let us know what you think! Don't think a game should have made the list? Upset that one of the games on your own personal list didn't make it? Drop us an email at Hit us up at or Twitter @NolaNerdPodcast and check out our video rendition of our list over at

Man. 48. That number is dangerously close to the big 5-0. We are crazy near our biggest milestone yet! Thank you everyone who has stuck with us this long. But enough premature nostalgia! We are here to talk about comics yo! This week we tackle the final wave of DC's Zero Month and discuss and debate any new origin changes contained within. We sadly start the countdown clock to the end of major Marvel flagship books. We get interrupted by Cathy "Not Internet Famous" Lesher. And we shamelessly plug other Nola Nerd properties. Tonight, the Nola Nerds consist of Matt "Bad Pun" Finneman, Chris "Dot Gov" Robinson, and Scott "Rose and Thorn" Brehm. Books of the Week and Time Stamps below:
