This was easily one of our favorite episodes to record. Things get incredibly deep, dark, and even funny this week in the discussion of the psychology behind the enjoyment of Rogue-like games. So punishing, but also quite rewarding. David talks about existentialism, pursuing in the face of overwhelming odds to the contrary, and Albert Camus's "absurdism." Enjoy!
